GoPro Hero 5 Session


The Hero 5 Session sees the return of the cubic form factor that GoPro debuted with last year's Hero Session (originally launched as the Hero 4 Session). But where the Hero Session initially struggled to find its footing, launching at the same price as...

GoPro Hero review


Meet the GoPro Hero, the entry level action cam from the camera company that's essentially defined the action cam space. While it doesn't have as many bells and whistles as the latest Hero4 Black, it's a much more price conscious effort at around £100,...

The GoPro Hero, well, looks like a GoPro. If you've seen one of the small cameras attached to a helmet, bicycle or selfie stick before, you know what you're in for: a rugged little snapper that you can place almost anywhere. Unlike many of its siblings...

As the budget, entry-level GoPro, the Hero's missing out on plenty of functionality its bigger brothers boast. For starters, the polycarbonate housing is not replaceable, meaning if it does get all bashed up, or you scratch the lens cover, you'll have...

While the GoPro Hero doesn't have all the fancy features of its bigger brothers, it's still a capable little camera, and it's well priced to get you started with the GoPro craze. If you're not looking for all the extra features the Hero4 packs in,...

GoPro Hero review:


For the past few years, while GoPro was dominating the upper end of the action cam market, it sort of neglected entry-level buyers who wanted the GoPro experience, losing them to other camera makers. That changes to some extent with the Hero.

The GoPro Hero offers very good video quality for the money, gets you into the large mount ecosystem and the integrated housing is waterproof to 131 feet (40 meters).

The camera is permanently in its polycarbonate housing; the battery is built-in; it doesn't have GoPro's port for adding a touchscreen or extra battery pack or Wi-Fi; very limited shooting options.

Though the GoPro Hero is nearly devoid of features, this entry point for GoPro's lineup is just enough to get you started in the world of little, mountable cameras.

GoPro Hero 5 Session review: 4K action on a budget


As we explained in our review of the GoPro Hero 5 Black, the action camera is not only a worthy inclusion in our gift guide series, it can also be used for business too. But if the $569.95 flagship edition of the Hero is a bit rich for you, there's a...

While it has some limitations compared with the Hero 5 Black, 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. We also love the voice...

GoPro Hero 5 review: Hey it’s for business too


GoPro has, for many years, dominated the action camera scene. From the outset, the company recognised the need to combine top image quality with a compact, go-anywhere design – and the result has been huge sales globally, and it hasn't been just...

It’s inevitable: with more features, better ease of use, and waterproofing, plus improved audio capture, the GoPro Hero 5 Black is the new king of action cameras.
