GoPro Hero5 Black Unboxing & Review

Come check out my NEW BLOG for YouTube and photography. Don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere on this site 😉

Last week I purchased a new GoPro Hero5 Black to replace our GoPro Hero4 Silver. Within the first week of having this camera I took it snowshoeing (in June!) at Mount Rainier National Park to record some test footage.

The camera is much easier to use than the Hero4 and the picture quality is a lot better. Because the Hero5 is waterproof without a case, the audio quality was much better because the microphones are exposed.

This makes the GoPro Hero5 Black a great contender for vlogging cameras. Just look at Sawyer Hartman’s Australia footage with the Hero5 Black. It’s amazing.

You can watch my full unboxing video below. I can’t wait to use it in 4k on my next adventure!

Should I stay or should I go?

It’s been six months since my last post. I didn’t know if I was ever coming back. I had debated whether or not to just make YouTube videos and to leave blogging behind.

I’ve done a lot of thinking recently. Between cramming for my calculus II final on Thursday and finishing out my last week at the school newspaper, I’ve been thinking a lot about my future. Am I on the right path? Have I set myself up for success? Have I made a terrible mistake?

While I continue to work to solve these problems, I’ve realized that I need to do more to create my brand. If I’m serious about making YouTube a priority and publishing novels in the future, I need to start creating a brand that my followers and supports can rally behind. I need to get myself out there into the growing world of social media, but I also need to look back at where I started.

This blog came first.

Before I was on YouTube making video blogs, or vlogs, about my life, before I had a Twitter account or built a following around my photography on Instagram, I had WordPress. I had this blog to showcase myself to the world. Now blogging has taken a backseat on my adventure.

It’s been six months since my last post. I didn’t know if I was ever coming back. I had debated whether or not to just make YouTube videos and to leave blogging behind. I even created a brand new website at https://chasecharaba.wixsite.com/chasecharaba. I still don’t know what I should do. I’ve had this blog for a long time, but it’s lost its purpose. I started it to promote myself as an author, not as a YouTuber.

Even though I’ve been thinking lately about the future of this blog, I’m uncertain. Wix is a better website to host my content on and it would be a clean slate, but I’ve already built a foundation here with all of you.

Best wishes,

Chase
