Guys, am new to action camera hence trying to buy a 2nd hand one. Is it a good buy if someone is selling me a gopro hero 5 black bought early this year at 300? The only thing is the cable is missing. Can any USB-C cable charge gopro hero 5? Thks.

Given a choice, would you prefer a 2nd hand gopro 5 with everything but no box or no charging cable?

If you want a Hero 5, get a 2nd hand Hero 2018 instead and do the firmware crack to Hero 5.

They are basically the same hardware, the Hero 2018 is just crippled via firmware. You can find some selling at Carousell.

If your Budget is around $300/-.... suggest you wait for Qoo10’s 10.10 sale or Black Friday sale
Might be able to get BNIB Hero 5 for around your Budget.

For now, Brand new Hero 5 is going @ $350/-

Intend to buy gopro hero 2018. Does it comes with a selfie stick?
Not sure if want to buy Hero 7 white instead, but heard it comes with the same specs and built in battery.

disadvantage of built-in battery is when the battery dies, your gopro also dies. troublesome to rma.

Hero 7 White has no gps too.

One thing going for the new Hero is probably its audio quality. From review, the 7 Black (not sure about White but I guess it should be the same) has much better audio compared to Hero 6/Hero 5.

Hi all,

i am interested to get the new gopro hero 7 black.
I saw on gopro that they are selling for $595.

But i saw on carousell there are some sellers taking in pre-orders and price is cheaper than gopro itself. like $525-$550?

How come they can sell cheaper than gopro website?
I am just curious, does anyone knows why?

$595/- is local set with local warranty by official distributor.

Those carousel sellers are parallel importers, bought in from other countries....
May not have warranty (so relying on international warranty) or limited shop warranty.

So you have to consider whether the price difference is worth paying for...

Guys quick question abt charging. I am charging my hero 5 directly from the camera itself but I realise that after charging for a while, the charging icon (lightning) will be changed to the USB connection icon (plug). Question is, is the battery still being charged.
