Gopro Session 5 Review

Gopro’s first waterproof camera without a housing is here. The Gopro Session 5 is Gopro’s smallest, compact camera yet. The Session 5’s 1 inch cube design allows you to capture all the action without having to worry about the camera.


The Gopro Session 5 comes with many interesting features that make it one of the best action cameras yet.


One Button Control

The Session 5’s one button control allows you to focus more on the action and less on the capturing. A press of the button and your gopro will start recording, press again and it will stop recording and save your video.

Advanced Video Stabilisation

The advanced video stabilisation is at its best yet, allowing you smooth video without stabilisation equipment.


Waterproof and Durable

Another awesome feature from gopro is the Session 5’s waterproofing to 33ft (10m) without a housing and its durable design.

Photo and Video

The Session 5 also comes with the ability to shoot 4K video and 10MP photos in single, burst and time lapse modes.


Design and Voice Control

Two of the main characteristics of the Gopro Session 5 is its compact, small design as well as the new voice control feature. The Session 5 is designed to allow you to capture more angles and remain sleek and compact for the best experience. The hands free voice control on the Session 5 allows you to record and film without you having to stop what you’re doing.


The Session 5 has a lot of great features and things to look forward to, but it has some down sides too.

  • Non removable batteries –
  • No WDR or RAW support for still images
  • Navigation through the menu

Overall, the Gopro Session 5 is one of Gopro’s cheapest cameras on the market and is a great camera for recording without having to worry about big heavy cameras. The Session 5’s main limitation is the lack of a removable battery, only allowing you limited recording time until you have to charge it again. The session 5 is a great camera to just grab it and go and have some fun recording and enjoying the experience, your only limit is time.
