More Information

Your story, your way, in 4K

  • The HERO5 Session shoots footage in 4K30, 2.7K48, 1440p60, 1080p90, 960p100, and 720p120 formats to capture every detail of your wild adventures and scenic excursions. So whether you're conquering mountains in South America, scuba diving off the coast of Costa Rica, or just road tripping through the quaint English countryside, the HERO5 Session will be there to record it all in amazing 4K.
  • The 10MP image sensor takes high-quality still images and features a time lapse mode that takes photos at set intervals between 0.5 to 60 seconds to help you create short, shareable, and always memorable videos. Or activate Burst mode to take up to 30 photos in rapid succession and capture every detail of a friend surfing through a barrel or front flipping off a pier.
  • Advanced video stabilization ensures all your footage -- from the handles of your BMX bike or mounted to your helmet as you zoom down the ski slopes-- is captured in stunningly smooth detail.
  • Enhanced Auto Low Light automatically adjusts frame rates for optimal low-light performance. Plus, Night Photo and Night Lapse mode let you customize your exposure settings. Enjoy stunning footage of the festival of lights and evenings camping by the lake.
  • Auto image rotation automatically adjusts capture orientation to right-side up when the camera is inverted, ideal for when you're ziplining upside down.
  • Protune gives you manual control over colour, ISO limit, exposure, and more so you can experiment and watch your creativity soar to new heights.

Rugged and Ready

  • Your HERO5 Session has a rugged design and is protected to depths of 10m without housing. It comes with a standard frame, mounting buckle, curved adhesive mount, and flat adhesive mount, so you can easily attach it to a helmet, handlebar, or watercraft -- perfect when you're kayaking down rapids or white-water rafting in Alaska.
  • Simple one-button control lets you spend less time fiddling with your camera and more time having fun. A single press of the shutter button powers the camera on and starts recording automatically.
  • This GoPro is optimized for efficiency with a built-in battery that automatically shuts off when not recording, so you only use power when there's action afoot.
  • Connect, edit, and share
  • Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth let you connect your HERO5 Session to your smart device through the GoPro App. Enjoy easy access to all camera modes and settings, control the camera remotely, and make it a snap to view and share your content all from your smart device.
  • The HERO5 Session automatically uploads footage to your GoPro Plus cloud account to provide easy access on your phone. Then with Quik, the GoPro editing app, you can create amazing videos worth sharing with friends, family, and on YouTube.

Made for adventure

  • Handsfree voice control lets you enjoy hands-free control of your GoPro using simple voice commands so you don't have to drop your oars, neglect the handlebars, or pause whatever you're doing to press record.
  • Dual mic system is engineered for advanced wind noise reduction to filter out unwanted sound, which is perfect when you're racing at high speeds or trying to shoot in stormy conditions.

Second Worst Electronic I've Ever Owned

Camera has been a constant battle for functionality Painful setup to connect to devices via app/wifi Wifi is lost in water The updates constantly corrupt SD cards Tried calling the help line gave up after half hour wait times Will never buy GoPro again

  • from Chatham, ON

Privacy Issue

Bought one, brought it back the same day. The only way to control this camera with your smartphone is to pair it with the GoPro app. When you look at that app please read the fine print. Your videos when using the app to control the camera are routed to the "GoPro cloud". They have the right to view and use anything of yours without letting you know or getting your permission. I want a GoPro, I will NEVER buy one until they correct this.

Great Purchase

Right out of the box, it was ready to go. Great for action videos, my family loves it.

  • from Ottawa, ON

Doesn't work

I can't say much about mine other than it doesn't work; I inserted the SD card (step #1 in the instructions), step 2 is to turn it on, but it won't turn on. Hopefully they will be able to fix it when I bring it back to the store, or at least provide me with one that works. So for now I have to give zero stars.

Great action camara

Excellent products for action videos and picture, high quality image and easy & ready to use everywhere. we enjoy it a lot, thanks...

  • from Chilliwack, BC

Quality of this camera was amazing.

Opened the box and charged it up and worked awesome! Everything I researched on this camera was exactly as described. The video stabilizing is worth the upgrade from the hero 4. Can't wait to do more videos, photos, and time lapses with this thing.

Seems the battery drain too fast

Just bought one month ago. Fully charged last night, today I record only 23 minutes continuously.
