This in my in-depth review and comparison of the new GoPro HERO 5 Black vs the HERO 5 Session vs the YI 4K action cameras.
Be sure you watch my video ALL THE WAY THROUGH until the end, as there are surprising results throughout all the tests.
If you’re looking for a TL;DR:
-In overview and conclusion, all cameras are pretty amazing! The features, resolution shooting specs, image quality and clarity; all are amazing! You can’t really go wrong with any of them.
-If BUDGET is important to you, looking for the cheapest option, then I’d recommend the YI 4K. It (currently) is the most affordable, plus has a great touchscreen, and shoots fantastic footage. (Even winning over the GoPro’s in low light tests and stabilization.)
-If you need the BEST OF THE BEST looking shots, packed with a TON of extra features (like Protune, flat shooting profile, built-in waterproof, GPS, HDMI port, exposure controls, RAW + HDR still photos, voice control, and a ton more), then definitely go with this new HERO5 BLACK – it’s amazing!
-If built-in durability, waterproof, and SUPER TINY/SMALL form factor is important, then go with the HERO5 SESSION.
