With this entry, GoPro thrusts their action cameras into the next generation, providing crystal clear 4K video or still images, voice controls, and an easy to use one-button design. The GoPro HERO5 Session Action Camera features all the features and capabilities of the Hero5 Black but in a smaller, more compact form factor. Featuring many upgrades over the previous versions, this GoPro is easier to use than ever. With the push of a single button, record crystal clear 4K video at 30 frames per second or capture 10 megapixel images. Working in conjunction with the crystal clear image recording, the GoPro HERO5 Session features advanced image stabilization to ensure no matter how bumpy the trail is, the footage looks smooth and stable.
With three onboard microphones, the HERO5 Session captures stereo audio to match the smooth, clear video. Further utilizing the microphones, this GoPro recognizes voice commands, providing hands-free starting or stopping of video, or capturing of still images. Onboard WiFi and Bluetooth compatibility means that with the GoPro app, the user has further control from their fingertips, and with an additional optional subscription can automatically upload footage to the GoPro cloud.
The GoPro HERO5 Session Action Camera differs from its larger sibling in a few key ways. The HERO5 Session lacks the 2" touchscreen display as well as the removable battery. The smaller housing is designed for quick shooting and "set it and forget it" functionality. The GoPro HERO5 Session Action Camera comes with an attachment frame with mounting buckle, two adhesive mounts (flat and curved), and USB cable. Please note, you'll need a separate microSD card for storing your footage and pictures.
