Product information
Top features: 

- Ultra-compact design for fast-paced situations where you need to stay light 

- 4K action videos and 10 MP photos with single, burst and time lapse modes 

- Improved sharpness and stability with EIS advanced image processing 

- Tough waterproof design for confident outdoor action shoots 

Ultra-compact design

Recording action videos requires that you're mobile – you don't need extra lenses and heavy photo and video gear weighing you down when you're mid-activity or moving around to get tricky shots.

That's why the GoPro HERO5 Session weighs only 74 g and features an extra-compact cubic design that makes it easy to carry and unobtrusive to mount. Use it for convenience or as a reliable secondary camera.

4K action videos

Capture videos in crystal-clear 4k Ultra HD with the GoPro HERO5 Session. Everything looks sharp and detailed, with a cutting-edge sensor and wide lens to capture every ounce of tone and movement. You can also shoot 10 MP still images.

Whether you're an enthusiast or pro, footage quality is high enough for editing into exciting videos and montages. Immerse yourself in each scene and frame to make dynamic slow-motion sequences, and enhance your creations with single, burst and time lapse modes.

HERO5 Session only uses power when it's recording, helping to prolong battery life. It powers down automatically when you stop recording.

Improved sharpness and stability

HERO5 Session
keeps videos and images sharply focused with proprietary digital image stabilisation (EIS). Even when you're in the heat of the moment, it prevents motion blur so your audiences can clearly relive every electrifying moment with you.

For low light shooting, EIS keeps your footage well-focused so those awesome moments aren't spoiled by camera shake.

Tough waterproof design

This camcorder was made for outdoor shooting, whether you're traversing cliffsides, hiking rocky trails, dipping below waves or nailing difficult moves.

Even without casing, your HERO5 Session is waterproof to 10 m – explore the range of mounting accessories (sold separately) to take the camera on any exploit.

Be bold and record distinctive first-person or birds-eye views on scenes, be creative onstage at a concert or make memorable home videos.

Get the most out of your action cam

We recommend using a UHS Speed Class 3 memory card as it offers the speed you need for capturing 4K Ultra HD footage. Keep your new gear protected with a travel-friendly case or bag which will also hold your daily essentials.

Capture shots from unique angles and perspectives by mounting your action cam – we offer a wide selection of action cam mounts and harnesses.

Love the 90fps which allows buttery smooth slow mo.

Size is much better than some of the more expensive models; low profile/footprint.

4K which can be downscaled makes 1080p much better for dynamic range and colour grading.
Battery life is typical of GoPro’s and it’s a sealed unit so you can’t swap out to a new battery.

WiFi connection is temperamental! Sometimes a pain in the rear to connect.
