Who says bigger is better?

Packing all the best features of the HERO5 Black into an ultra-portable cube, the GoPro HERO5 Session is part of GoPro's latest generation of portable action cameras. This tiny action camera offers a compact solution for athletes and adventurers seeking a non-invasive method for capturing outdoor activities and travel. Capable of shooting in 4K at 30 frames per second (fps), the HERO5 Session represents a major upgrade in video quality over the previous Session. Photography is better than ever, capturing 10 megapixel photos in single, burst, and time-lapse sequences.

As with the previous generation, intuitive one-button operation makes capturing mind-blowing footage incredibly easy. Voice activation is one of the best new features, allowing for hands-free operation during fast activities. Another big upgrade is the advanced image stabilization (achieved by processor), which enables buttery-smooth video playback. This feature is especially important during action sports, which often cause jittery playback when image stabilization isn't present. Sound quality is also improved, thanks to the advanced wind noise reduction.

Creating an easier shooting and uploading experience, the HERO5 Session is WiFi and Bluetooth enabled, allowing you to wirelessly communicate with phones and tablets running the GoPro app. There's also the option to automatically upload your footage to the GoPro Plus cloud-based service (separate subscription required). The HERO5 Session comes with a standard mounting frame with buckle, two adhesive mounts, and USB cable. Please note, you'll need a microSD card (not included) for saving your video footage and images.

A keeper

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Good camera, waterproof, sturdy. A major plus is that it's easy to operate!

HERO 5 Session

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Sold my HERO 3 and replaced it with the 5 Session and could not be happier. The 4K option allows for great clarity for all of your footage and the Session's auto off option saves the battery life and myself the confusion of whether or not I had powered the camera off last time I stopped recording. Easy instant-On shutter provides the user with ability to simply press rec while the camera is off and the camera starts up and starts video recording without needing to then press rec after power-up. Excellent for constant on and off use and getting the most out of each battery charge. Highly recommend this camera over the HERO 5 or 6 do to its ability to match camera quality for an even more reasonable price.

Takes great video but glitchy

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got this camera as a gift and love the quality of video it produces an how easy it is to use. However, it has a very short battery life and glitches a lot, sometimes turning off randomly or not turning off and overheating. The waterproof feature is great!

Amazing quality, poor battery

    Small, cute, sturdy, fully waterproof. Great image capture up to 4K. The only bad thing I found is the battery life, and the fact that you can't replace the battery.

    Simple and handy

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought this as a gift for my aunt, she needed something easy to use for her motorcycle rides; no complaints, great quality, resistant and small.

    Great Camera

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    We used this while swimming with the dolphins in the Dominican Republic. Worked great and took awesome pictures.


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I gave this as a gift to my parents and they love it.

    It's super simple to use, has great battery life and shoots amazing quality footage.


    If you're looking to film things on a gopro DO NOT get this IF:
    -you like to film A LOT. The battery cannot be swapped out like other models or added to.

    You can pair the HERO5 Session to your phone via Bluetooth so you can see what your filming. It's actually a very simple and painless process. I haven't had a problem with battery life.

    Coolest gopro to date!

      Very small, light and easy to use when you want to quickly capture something on the go weather its skiing, skating or a family event you cant go wrong with this gopro!

      Pretty cool...

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      A little surprised at the great photo and video quality for how small this thing is! Easy to use, sturdy, lightweight. Only downside is the battery life...not that great. Overall, pretty cool!

      Unanswered Question

      Is there a swappable battery or only an on-board type that must be recharged before use?
