GoPro Hero5 Session review

 

The small, but still 4K-capable GoPro

Small, unobtrusive design ; Captures stabilized 4K video ; Several new field of view modes

No replaceable battery ; Simple controls can be confusing ; Can't match Hero5 Black's camera

The Hero5 Session is a major specs boost for GoPro's tiniest action camera. It now shoots stabilized 4K video and has a variety of new field of view modes. It's more expensive, but worth the upgrade if you're okay with no replaceable battery.
