4k Video - 4k video offers twice the resolution of normal 1080p HD video. It does 4k at 30 FPS, 1440p at 60 FPS and 1080p at 90 FPS. What this translates to is incredible clarity and detail in your footage.
You also get manual control over the exposure settings with the on-screen exposure control option.
12MP Photos - This camera offers 12MP images with the option to save in RAW format, which essentially gives you full control over how you edit these. This is what's typically found on DSLRs, and now it's on your tiny GoPro. But if you don't want to deal with the more common JPG format is still an option, and it's also takes photos in 12MP.
This can also perform in burst mode at 30 FPS and has a time lapse function, through the burst mode you'll be able to capture what amounts to video (30 frames per second) but with a 12MP resolution.
33ft (10M) Waterproof Rating - Hopefully you never drop this in the water, but even without a waterproof case this will be able to handle it down to 33 feet.
2-inch Touch Display - Preview and play back your shots, change settings and even trim footage all on your GoPro.
Wi-Fi + Bluetooth - Combined with a GoPro Plus subscription you'll be able to automatically upload photos and videos directly to the cloud for easy viewing, editing and sharing.
Voice Control - This technology gives you hands-free control over your device with simple voice commands.
Advanced Wind Noise Reduction - No one wants too much noise in their footage, but that can be hard when you're bombing hills like a mad man, luckily GoPro initiated this technology to handle the issue. Using internal algorithms, the HERO5 Session can reduce artifacts from wind noise, making audio quality more acceptable, even in extreme circumstances.
Video Stabilization - Too much shake can ruin a shot, luckily for you GoPro is on it and you'll be able to capture stunningly smooth video whether you're recording in your hand or mounted to your gear.
One-Button Control - With a single press of the shutter, the button powers the camera on and starts recording automatically.
