GoPro Updated Hero5 Firmware To V2, Adds RAW Support

GoPro updates firmware for the Hero5 to V2 adding many fixes and features. Perhaps the best is RAW output now. However, its into GoPro's flavor of DNG whilch means while Adobe apps 2015+ can read it, other apps can't. USe the Adobe DNG Converter util to make real DNG's instead. Lots of other fixes, additional language support, but same miserable firmware update. Hint : Just do it manually. If you go into camera prefs it will display the camera serial number so you don't have to try reading it off the battery comparment.
