GoPro Hero 5 Has Arrived

Posted by on 6. October 2016

Life is about living by the moment. No other action camera captures those active moments better than Go Pro. It gets even better with the new GoPro Session 5 and the GoPro Hero 5 Black.  GoPro Karma is also coming real soon to change the game in documenting events and occasions.

GoPro Hero 5

The Hero Family

GoPro has always been there to get those precious active moment.  It has changed the game when it comes to documentation of the both the scenery, the active lifestyle and even the regular day-to-day events.  It’s durable, compact and powerful. The GoPro has been perfect for outdoor-junkies enjoying the active lifestyle like me.  Whether I want to capture that magnificent summit view, take a video on a swift descent over a trail, preserve the priceless sunrise view over the beach and a lot more, GoPro is an excellent go-to camera for these moments.  Some moments happen but once in our life and GoPro is our best chance to preserve it.

Hello GoPro Karma

Last October 3, 2016, Dan’s and Moduvi, the exclusive Philippine distributors of GoPro for the Philippines, unveiled new products and services that dramatically simplify the process of capturing, editing and sharing engaging content, establishing GoPro as an end-to-end storytelling solution.  GoPro Session Hero 5 Black and Session 5 has improved features that every user would enjoy in capturing those priceless moments.

GoPro is also bringing in  their long-awaited drone in the Karma, which is tailor-made specifically for the GoPro line of action cameras. It has added built-in, gear-mounted image stabilization for both aerial and handheld for better output when paired with a GoPro.   Aside from better GoPro features. they’ve improved the auto-upload features to a cloud-based, GoPro plus accounts.  It’s now easier to share GoPro content online.

GoPro goes Mystery Manila

When it comes to launches, GoPro also does it with a unique concept and a bang.  They had a GoPro launch with Go Karts, Wakeboarding and Archery being the activity of the launch.  This time, GoPro goes Mystery Manila with participants going into cluedo missions in the hope to escape the different rooms.  It’s always a test of wits when it comes to escape room games and unfortunately for us, we failed in our Debbie Doll Mission.  We did go deep into the mission only to run out of time.  We did have fun and felt a sense of accomplishment for unlocking a lot of clues.

Here’s the New Line of GoPro

GoPro introduces its new line of HERO5 cameras, cloud-based software and Karma drone designed to make capturing and sharing those moments easier. The HERO5 can now auto-upload photos and videos to a GoPro Plus account, dramatically simplifying mobile, on-the-go editing, sharing and enjoyment.
