GoPro Hero 5 Session review: Small but mighty, and now on offer


The GoPro Hero 5 Session has 4K recording, impressive battery life and is waterproof; we love it, and it's currently on offer

It clearly has limitations compared with the Hero 5 Black, but the adorable Session packs one hell of a punch for such a tiny action camera. Its video quality is excellent, it’s waterproof and compact, and battery life is good. I also love the voice...

Wish I’d bought the full size Hero


I've been a long time Pro user of GoPro. I only bought this one after having had my last one stolen. Every iteration of GoPro uses a different menu system and the session is probably the most fiddly yet. It took ages to get it to come out of language...
