UNBOXING GoPro Hero5 Black 

Removing the GoPro Hero5 Black from the box casing isn’t very user-friendly.

So I made this video…

Feel free to share this video with anyone that will benefit from it.
https://youtu.be/Ougztri7i5s

My GoPro Hero5 Black has finally arrived, together with all ten accessories!

I will be starting a new series about “GoPro camera and editing 101”.

This is the first video in the series.

It’s simply about removing the action camera from the box easily.

I realized it’s not very intuitive for people new to GoPro and this video is for them.

In this training,
– I demonstrate how to first remove the GoPro from the display mount.
– Secondly, how to remove the casing, aka the Frame.

Also, Feel free to ask questions about GoPro camera and editing.

Watch a personal VLOG on purchasing my first GoPro action camera.

Premiere Pro vs Premiere Pro CC vs Final Cut Pro

What is the difference between Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro CC?

I got a few people asking me this in the last 7 days.

Well, the quick answer, Premiere Pro CC is the latest version of Premiere Pro.

CC stands for Creative Cloud.

The previous version is called the Premiere Pro CS6,

CS stands for Creative Suite.

One thing you must know, though, the CC version is subscription-based.

That means you have to pay monthly.

S$26 per month for Premiere Pro alone.

Or S$66 per month for the whole suite of Adobe software.

I am paying the S$66 per month subscription.

Why? I get every software I need for video editing.

Software like After Effects, Audition, and Photoshop.

At S$66, I also get useful software for graphics creation, PDF editing, and the whole lot of Adobe stuff.

A subscription also means, if we stop paying, the program stops working.

How do they know? Adobe makes us sign in online once in a while.

We can install on many computers, but can only use two at one time. Adobe will sign out the rest.

I have installations on my MacBook Pro and Windows laptops.

The beauty is, project files are transferable across both platforms.

Now, the follow-up question.

If CC stands for creative cloud, does that mean we to be connected to the internet while working?

No. Actually, it is not really cloud-based. We still have to download and install the programs to use.

Side question: What about Final Cut Pro? Is it good?

I use Final Cut Pro too. It is an alternative to Premiere Pro. No subscription. Cost about US$400, but only works on Mac.

Which one do you prefer? Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere Pro?

Both.

I use Premiere Pro for client work. Why? It has everything I need for video editing.

I use Final Cut Pro for my own production, like vlogs. Why? It does things faster.

What is the “everything” else that Premiere has and Final Cut doesn’t?

On Premiere Pro, I can tweak almost every tiny aspect of a video to make it better.

Premiere Pro also have powerful supporting software that integrates seamlessly.

The supporting software I use mostly are After Effects, Audition, and Photoshop.

Over to you. (My answers turned into an article)

Feel free to ask your question.

🙁 4K recording cropped

😐 1-inch sensor
😐 Slo-mo up to 1080p 120fps
😐 vs Sony RX10 Mark III (bigger zoom range, lighter weight, lens aperture ring, slo-mo 1080p 240fps, no ND filters)

This camera is perfect for shooting event videos.

Available Internationally at Price US$1197.

Do you think this camera is for you?

 

What are the accessories required?

Must also get:

– Shotgun mic DMW-MS2 US$279 (NO NEED BATTERY)

Considered RODE Videomic Pro USD230, but NEED BATTERY, and about same price as the MS2
