Just for those wanting to try 256GB micro sd cards, I bought the 256GB Samsung Evo Plus 90MB read and 80MB write, works well with over 8 hours continuous video writing. Costs me about $140 including shipping from Korea on Qoo10.

I am on Hero 5 v2.60 firmware.

Haha, I was an “early” adopter of GoPro and haven’t followed its new releases as crazily as I used to as they were coming out with one like every year....and getting more stale and expensive too?
When I finally thought I needed a new action cam again, I realise the 5 and 6 were the “same” in many ways.
Then the karma disaster hit. I remember watching that release and well it was rather cool but still just as bulky as the DJI phantoms....so didn’t get it. And boy am I Glad.

Planning to get gopro hero6 black. Any recommended place? Thanks

Lazada got one listing at $499, sold by Starz Mode. This one international warranty, no local warranty. Saw this on HWZ Deal Alert.

Can gopro records without battery but with constant power from car charger ?

Does gopro automatically upload to the gopro cloud if i am paying for gopro plus ?

Let's say if my gopro constantly have internet connection and do i really need big sd card storage ?

Just use the Gopro Quik app on your mobile phone. They can auto cut, edit according to your hilights, choice of song, presets etc.

Comparing to hero 5 , is hero 6 worth buying ?

Is audio important to you? If yes, skip Hero 5. Using internal mic, the Hero 5 audio recording quality is not good (weak). To get good audio, you have to buy external mic adapter + mic, become clumsy plus spend extra $.

I don't have Hero 6, but think the audio is better (beside others). Wait for owners of Hero 6 to comment.

I share the view that good audio is a very important component for any multi video presentation.

Many of use have taken video with our mobile out of convenience or unpreparedness, and incorporate it in our project presentation. I find the audio especially the background noise very distracting and downplay the quality of the whole presentation.

Many a time I opted to mute the recorded audio for including the video out of necessity in preparing presentation especially to a sizeable group of audience.
