In this GoPro Hero5 Black for Beginners series, I cover everything you need to know out of the box, plus provide a GoPro Settings Cheat Sheet that I want you to have! It’s a one-page printable reference you can keep with your GoPro gear or save it to your phone, or iPad so you have it handy. We’ll cover all the GoPro settings you’ll ever want to know about through this month, but go ahead and download the cheat sheet now so you have it handy!

GoPro Hero5 Black for Beginners

This month’s “30 Days of GoPro – a Guide for Beginners” series is going to cover everything Hero 5 Black… from unboxing and figuring out what comes with it, to settings, modes, etc… everything! I will be publishing a brand new video every day during the 30 days, and each video will be added to the 30 Days of GoPro playlist below. If you want to get each video as soon as I upload them through the month of April, make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel.

I will post updates here on this post throughout the month, but you won’t be seeing a brand new blog post for every video. Everything will be easy to find, right here on this page!
