Al Smith here I just upgraded my session to a session five you need to know a couple things before you go out and buy this camera I'm personally very disappointed in this camera for one reason that one major reason alone for me it may not work for you it may not disappoint you so I'm going to tell you my top four reasons to upgrade the to the GoPro 5 session and the top 4 reasons not to upgrade to the GoPro 5 here is my biggest complaint with the
00:31
GoPro session 5 the audio quality in it is horrible whatever they did changed the way it deals with audio here's a clip in my Jeep and you can hear the background noise is crazy and the exhaust note of my Jeep goes crazy I'll run it next to this one right after so you can hear the difference I go back and forth check these two clips out and listen to the background noise in these two clips they're in the exact same mount nothing is different nothing has changed in my setup the exact two
01:03
cameras in exactly the same situation listen to the audio this is back to the other my original hero session just so you can see and hear how the sound is on the original one that I was using forever I'm accelerating all right so my dash cam right now is the hero 5 which is an upgrade to the hero but hero 4 session so they're both sessions ones the five ones the older one and this one has the image stabilization turned on and it does some weird stuff I notice I thought
01:41
it would be good for the car we turn on it moves that our mid like jiggle you can see the car moving a little bit when it's bumpy so I'm not sure if I like that or not it's an interesting thing I saw it for the first time when I was parking the other day I'm accelerating so I thought it'd be good for the car we eternal onion moves in a bit like jiggle you can see the car moving that's a huge issue for me because I need to sit in the Jeep and talk to you guys that's a huge issue I can't deal with that it
02:15
makes the audio unusable for what I've been using the sessions for in the Jeep I've been running two of them unusable audio I can't use this camera because the audio is my biggest complaint so I contacted GoPro support just in case I was missing something maybe there's a new setting or new something that I was missing so I contacted their live chat and this is what I got from them hello my name is Kevin how can I help you and just I'll summarize my thing but I told them the exact issue I said I've upgraded to it the audio is unusable in
02:45
the car you can't even hear me I've got them both in the same mount I've even got video from the two of them that I can send you if you need to hear it I said is there a setting that I'm missing in the hero 5 that I don't know about that has to do with audio and they said thank you for chatting with GoPro support I am stoked that I was able to assist you with all you needed to make sure you can maximize the full potential of your video camera or your camera and start being a hero GoPro am I talking to a robot like did
03:20
you just you didn't help me with anything you went right from hello my name is Kevin I'm glad I could help you how does that shake your head GoPro shame on you WTF didn't help me with anything they said it's my pleasure to help you in any way that I can so read what I wrote above and answer my question can you please wait two minutes because I look my resources here unfortunately we do not have any audio adjustments for the hero five session I said so it's just that bad I thought the cameras in the hero line
03:49
had a high and low this one apparently doesn't they just answer to gain with a cut and pasted unfortunately we do not have any audio adjustments for the hero five session it's unfixable what you just saw in the video you need to know that because you will be in situations where if you're relying on the audio from this it'll be very very unusable you'd be better off using an original session okay that's my number one complaint and that's the whole reason that this video is now on the Internet second reason they went to the new USB type-c connection which
04:21
isn't that big a deal if these are the only GoPros you own but if you're if you have a whole arsenal of GoPros already that are all built on the old standard and all the old cables you need to carry two sets of cables if you add this to your little system image stabilization for me wasn't working in the Jeep well because what would happen is you can see in this clip here that nose of the Jeep would turn and then the camera would turn and it gave this very washy effect and a lot of people I showed the video out of it to said that they felt like thrown up because it was just so motion
04:50
sickness inducing so I can't use it for that reason and then the last one for me is that I'm worried about this door the other one felt solid this door they've made it so you can now take the door off I don't know why they decided that was important I'm guessing because maybe they want to go for the other one oh they want a replacement door maybe we'll break up I don't know why but I'm concerned that that's going to become a weak point that little plastic clip in there and it could cause your camera to leak because could you imagine if it didn't seal properly and you got water
05:21
all inside your GoPro housing which is waterproof that's a concern from four reasons I think you should upgrade our 4k if you need 4k this one has it the old one doesn't so upgrade if you need 4k BarNone if you're not if you don't need sound you don't care about sound new in 4k it's a good upgrade it's worth it the the second one for me is the higher frame rates in 1080p are kind of cool if you need higher frame rates in 1080p you've always thought that the session didn't have high frame rates for you then upgrade because I think that would make it worth it the
05:51
third one for me is image stabilization may work for you in certain circumstances if you're riding a bike or you're doing certain things where you know you need that it'll probably work for you so if you need the image stabilization on certain things yes if you're doing it in a car I think it adds this weird effect that makes it hard to see what's going on and then the fourth big reason for me to upgrade to this camera is they've now in the firmware made it so you can use an external mic with this camera which you couldn't with the original session so the new session can put a mic on it which is awesome
06:23
more work for me unfortunately because I turn my camera around the dash constantly and it would just get in the way if I had it plugged in if you're going to use an external mic know that you need the new type-c USB connector which is different from your old connectors with all your the GoPros if you're using an external mic okay so there's the top four reasons - is 4k if you need it image stabilization if it'll work for you new frame rates in 1080p which is awesome and you can put an external mic on it before concerns audio
06:55
was brutal image stabilization didn't work for me in my car rig setup the new USB cable type C means I got to carry other ones on top all my other GoPros to charge stuff and everything and that little door might break those are my reasons why you should not upgrade if the session is working fine for you okay I can't get over the sound quality of this thing by itself it's unbearable it didn't work and I'm disappointed and what was with their live chat support hey I think I was talking to a bought
07:27
and B then I think I was talking to somebody who doesn't know English which if you know my IP is coming from you North America you should hook me up with English at least thank you or if I type you in English you should detect it it's the 2016's check that stuff out anyway I hope that was helpful so I really just wanted to put that out there because no one's talked about that sound issue yet no one's talked about the fact that you need to upgrade to new USB things I don't know if anyone's really talked about the external mic yet with that last firmware update that just came out
07:59
for it but those are my top four - bye and my top 4 not to buy I hope that helps you guys make a decision we'll see you guys soon I don't often do gear reviews but when I do they're based completely on my experience in using these things and that's it I won't tell you I won't sugarcoat anything for you but there's my review of the two GoPros I'm so sad I wanted to work so well I thought that image dailies would be awesome and if the sound was okay
08:32
I would probably upgrade after upgrade all my bill pros because I can turn image stabilization off if I need to and I could sell all my GoPros and update them all to the new one so I only have one able to carry around again I just can't get over how bad the audio is horrible alright I'll see you guys tomorrow
