I was playing with my new Hero5 with the Capture apps on my Android phone.

Realised that the viewer on the Capture apps lags whenever I shift the camera itself. Both the devices are updated, side by side and the camera is set to 1080p at 60fps, but not recording.

Any experience on this lags?

I'd recommend dropping an email to gopro first (or contacting support via their website). Last time my dive housing shattered and they sent a new one to me for free even though I wasn't under warranty anymore.

While you wait, I suggest taking out the battery, opening all port covers and placing it in a dry cabinet (or an airtight container with thirsty hippo). Let the moisture in the gopro dry out for maybe a couple of days then try turning it on. Saltwater will corrode the contacts on the pcb if you don't dry it fast.

Edit: if it is saltwater right, you may want to try soaking it in tapwater first (at your own risk!) to rinse out the salt. Whatever you do, do not turn on the camera again! The battery can potentially short the camera out!

For SD cards, can try Lazada Convergent store. Look for the 64gb v30 ones.

http://www.lazada.sg/sandisk-extreme-pro-64gb-microsdxc-uhs-1-u3-v30-up-to-95mbs-readmemory-card-with-adapter-6180534.html

Depending on promo, can get it for $47 - $52.

Started using GoPro hero 5 for about a month. Was a user from hero 3 and 3+ .
No major complaints here except there won't be much chance of a extended hi capacity battery ( in bacpack form) for the H5 in the near future which is a major cons for me.
Also a concern for me is the rubber finish on the hero 5 itself. In the past , many hero 3 or heto3+ accessories like the original battery charger or LCD backpack has got the similar rubber grip coating similar on the hero 5 itself. Overtime, many of these coating has 'melted' and tuned into a oily and sticky mess. I have to 'washed' these coating away with turpentine . Hope the hero 5 won't end up like this especially in a hot & humid Singapore weather here.

I'm looking for a gimbal for my GoPro 5 .. was initially thinking of getting the Feiyun G5 .. but read some online reviews about the GoPro5 picking up noise from the motors ..

Does anyone have any recommendations?
