    "Great summer camera with cool audio controls and video stabilization. don't even think about using it in cold weather. It will not work, the battery will die, you can't change out battery for a warm one and you are SOL. I've had three other gopro cameras over the years and always loved them. I've used them skiing and paragliding in Alaska with great results. This camera is absolutely worthless in cold temps. "anything below freezing" You have it in your warm pocket just prior to use, put it on your helmet right before you use it, 8 minutes later, it says low battery and shuts down. If you're using this in Hawaii, then good for you, its a great small camera but for us snow sport enthusiast, don't waste your time. Buy a camera with a removable battery and have extras someplace warm just in case. Hopefully I saved someone some time with this review. Cheers..."

    "This camera is a solid option for those wanting a wearable camera. It has loads of features that would allow for it to be used in many different settings, it also has some decent audio settings that one can use. The video quality is outstanding, the only complaint is that the battery life isn't all that great. If your looking to do some short recording this is a camera that you should check out. I would recommend it based on the quality of the picture alone, it is well built. "

    "I strapped this GoPro HERO5 Session to my skydiving helmet. I was skeptical that it would keep still during that insane drop. The adhesion or the mount itself is super strong, and it wowed me to see the footage afterward. Sure enough, the images of the horizon were steady, and I was not disappointed with my purchase of this particular GoPro model. If you are an adventure-seeker, rest assured that the GoPro HERO5 Session can be right along side of you capturing the moments."

    "I was so excited for my Bahamas trip since it was the first time I was going to go scuba diving. I needed to find a good camera that I would be able to use under the water. My friend recommended that I use this one. It did not disappoint. I loved the quality of the video that I was able to take underwater."

    "The GoPro HERO5 is an upgrade from its predecessor, which rumor has it, has gotten many a man's wife stung by stingrays. This bad boy takes video in 4K and is waterproof to 10m without any additional housing. Quite lovely for those peaceful days on an Australian beach, with playful jellyfish to keep you company as you film your next Youtube video. At $199.99, this is a steal!"

    "The Session is the latest camera from GoPro. It is a great little camera with a good resolution overall. It's not the same level of detail as seen with the Hero Silver, however for people like me who find themselves in the woods for days at a time, it's awesome to be able to have a lightweight and compact form factor to pack in. Function -The Hero Session features a one-click operation. Click the main button once, video recording starts at the specified default resolution. You can set this with the camera itself via the buttons or in the remote control app on your phone/pad. If you hold the main button for 3 seconds, it will start a time lapse. Easy peasy."

    "First off I love fishing. I use a kayak a lot to go fishing around my lake. This camera is amazing. I can strap it on me and it records my whole trip if I want it to. Usually I just turn it on when I get to my spot and start reeling in some fish. Awesome product. If you do stuff on the go like me or just can't risk getting your phone wet then I recommend you try this out."

    "Every camera I’ve bought so far with an hdmi output has been sub-par to say the least, and this GoPro HERO5 Session is no different. I was very dissapointed in the recording quality. I would have thought this reputable brand would automatically be top of the line but I guess that’s what I get for assuming."

    "I needed a camera to mount on my bike/helmet to serve as a dash cam, cause honestly it's almost a necessity at this point. Saw the bigger action cameras and thought they were all kinda bulky, and you needed to use the waterproof case to actually get any kind of protection. I picked up this little thing because it's small, light, and it's actually waterproof on it's own, so no need for any extra cases. It's very discrete, I love it."

    "The GoPro is a standard brand in wearable cameras. These are perfect for people who are "outdoorsy", especially those who love outdoor sports. I know my favorite thing to take it on are wilderness bike rides. The HERO5 is a great one in the line of GoPros to consider. It has 4K and bluetooth capabilities, and perhaps most importantly is that it is waterproof."

    "Upgraded from previous GoPro HERO series products, HERO5 is among highly upgraded. I am not new to this technology as I have experience with previous HERO series. Getting HERO5 was unimaginable joy for me. The new and advanced features with various software tools for outer access of files and ultra high resolution image quality would give you unique and elegant experience of capturing the moment through digital art. Right now, we are in the middle of our plan to visit Colorado Vail with our friends, and getting my GoPro HERO5 is in the center of having my skiing experience recorded"

    "The GoPro HERO5 Session is a great wearable camera at an affordable price. Unfortunately, this particular model does not have an LCD screen for real-time video viewing. However, you can subscribe to GoPro Plus which will allow your video to be uploaded to a cloud and you can access your video content from a smart device like your phone or tablet. I personally would prefer the LCD the screen and eliminate the need to subscribe to a seperate service for instant playback. "

    "I do a lot of sports involving water, and I want to be able to share my adventures on my social media accounts. I was looking for something I waterproof and hands-free, and decided to purchase the GoPro HERO5 Session. It was really easy to use and I got a lot of cool pictures while at the beach. I am docking one star, however, because sometimes it had trouble connecting to the internet and I wouldn't have instant access to my pictures, but that only happened occasionally. "

    "The GoPro HERO5 Session is a great choice for someone just starting out with sports photography or for the processional seeking top quality action footage. There's a reason that GoPro is head of the pack when it comes to body-mounted cameras - you really can't do better than GoPro. The video and photo quality are great, and are worth the investment. The only downside to this particular model is the lack of LCD screen for real-time video viewing."

    "GoPro cameras have been leading technology in affordable action based and wearable cameras. Being able to support 4k videos at above 30 frames per second is amazing but at the price point of a Hero5, it's even more mind blowing. The Hero5 can also withstand all types of rough conditions and is even waterproof."

The product is really simple to make sense of in the event that you've utilized any photograph/video editing program previously. The picture quality is sufficient for everything I do. My only grumbling is that it doesn't have a removable battery AND I am always depleting the battery at a quick rate. A backup battery might be nice to have."
