Waterproof, durable, and loaded with impressive tech in a tiny package. GoPro has really upped its game with this latest iteration of the HERO. GoPro is already known for being the go-to camera for all your ill advised adventures. Admit it, sometimes the stuff you film is absurd, and now you can partake in all those dangerous situations while recording in the closest thing to cinema quality resolution currently available to the public, and at a reasonable cost.
The HERO5 Session offers 4k footage at the traditional 30 frames per second, while offering 1080p at an insane 90 frames per second, which means clarity so ridiculous it looks unreal.
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.
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.
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.
Audio - Advanced audio processing through the use of 3 microphones, and captured in full stereo. It also comes with a built-in speaker.
One-Button Control - With a single press of the shutter, the button powers the camera on and starts recording automatically.
Voice Control - This technology gives you hands-free control over your device with simple voice commands.
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.
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.
10MP Photos - Not only can it take super high quality 10MP photos, it 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 10MP resolution.
