How I use my GoPro Hero 5 Black to record and compile trail run videos on my MacBook Air

Since getting the GoPro Hero 5 Black as an early Christmas Gift I have been searching for ways to compile videos on my MacBook Air in a simple, time efficient manner.  Here is what I have found:

  1. For trail runs I have found the 740p / 30s setting works the best and gives considerable battery duration - about an hour of use with cold - 10 degree F temperatures.
  2. The Quik program and the to a lesser extent - the GoPro Studio program are memory hungry applications and are continually stopping during video processing.
  3. Quicktime and IMovie have been much easier to use with the storage on my existing computer.
  4. The MicroSD card placed int her adapter is much easier to use then trying to download the files from the camera directly.
  5. The head mount works better than the chest mount in my experience - Too much horizontal movement with the chest mount and my hands are visible.
