One of my favorite things I own!Bought this last October and I could not be happier! It had every feature I was looking for: Removable & rechargable batteries, camera can be removed from frame and waterproof needing no other camera body/mount/frame. The colors and sounds are beautiful, the LCD touchscreen on the back is easy to use and the free GoPro video editing software is an awesome bonus.
This has videoed our son during soccer, my many shooting competitions and our favorite thing...vacation videos. The Hero 5 Black took all of our Disney World vacation videos in every park we hit...through roller coasters, water rides, wandering through the parks & resorts...to jumping in the resort pool at night.
My only complaint, and this is very situation specific, is during my pistol competitions the sound of the gunfire is muted due to the sophisticated speaker systems in the Hero 5 Black & Hero 5 Session cameras. If you never shoot a gun while recording you'll never see this happen to your videos. If you are looking to a camcorder specifically for shooting competitions, the Hero 4 Black is what you need.
I love my Hero 5 Black (and my Hero +) and take them with us everywhere! This is the camcorder you are looking for!

Gopro Hero5Overall a great camera. I am not happy that Gopro changed the features so that you can not rename or change passwords as on previous models.
