GOPRO HERO 5 SESSION REVIEW

We’ve been lucky enough to work with AO who sent us a GoPro Hero 5 Session to test out and review.

Spoiler alert, it’s great!

So when we first received the GoPro we were working with AO on a post about making time for family. So we slung the kids and the dog in the car and went off to the local woods to test out our new toy, the GoPro Hero 5 Session.

I think the best way to tell you what we think is to show you. After all, it is a camera!

But first, here’s some details about the GoPro Hero 5 Session:

  • 4K Video 30FPS
  • 10MP Camera
  • USB-C Connection
  • Waterproof without extra case needed up to 10m
  • Voice Control

Notes I made after using the GoPro to shoot our video:

  • Very portable
  • Only 2 physical buttons making it so easy to use
  • Robust

family time

Our Thoughts:

The 4K video quality was very good, better than I expected. The underwater shot we took, albeit in awful water was great. The voice control was really useful, I found myself using it a lot. I’d say the still photo images are good rather than great, it won’t be replacing my actual camera or iPhone but I’d be happy to use it if needed.

Functionality was good. I found having only the two buttons useful as it made things simple. Using the app increased the GoPro’s functionality 10-fold, its a must! Battery life could do with improving, it’s not great but I could say that about almost all of my camera’s.

I dunked the GoPro in water, threw it around a bit and even rolled it down a grass hill, so the robust test got a huge tick!

All in all the GoPro Hero 5 Session is a great camera and one I have no problems recommending. It will definitely be a major part of our kit going forward.

Here’s our video we created using the GoPro Hero 5 Session and the GoPro Quik app.

    It’s a good little camera and as you say really robust but the battery life is shocking! I don’t know about you but I find the on and off button quite fiddly.

    I agree with the still images – I wouldn’t use it for that purpose. Husband bought it so I could use it for rollerblading with and in my mind that’s what a GoPro is for capturing movement.

      Yes, the battery life needs improving but to be fair I hammer every device I have and no battery lasts very long at all. I found the buttons and functionality really good and easy. Yeah, they’re for adventures aren’t they, although I might actually film tomorrow’s entire vlog with it just to see how it looks.
