    "There is a reason GoPro is the leader in the action camera space. I am a drone enthusiast, so I am picky when it comes to these solutions. The Karma just knocked my expectations out of the park. Two thumbs up from this reviewer."

    "After owning GoPro's Hero 2 and Hero 3, the Session (formerly named the Session 4) is a nice break from the usual. You can go to GoPro's website to read the specs (resolutions, etc.) for yourself, I'll just talk about real-world camera usage. The main difference of the Session in GoPro's lineup is the form factor; I found that the smaller, cube-shaped Session made it more versatile for my primary usage, which is to film my mountain biking adventures. It's lighter than the standard Hero, and the shape makes it a lot easier to put in places without being an obstruction (such as below the visor of my helmet without blocking my view) or without being awkward (when mounted to the side of my helmet, the Session's weight doesn't pull my helmet to one side like the standard Hero cameras). part of this is thanks to the Session not requiring an outer housing to make it waterproof, which trims the bulk a lot. Instead I can just use the small mounting frame, and I run the Session "naked" with the lens exposed with no problem, since it has a removable/replaceable lens (with my Hero 2/3 I had to run the camera inside the bulky case to get waterproofing and protection for the Hero 2/3's non-replaceable lens). The Session mounting frame is compatible with all of the current GoPro style mounts and accessories available."

    "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. "

    "Like the HERO6 this camera is another stellar, but a bit older, addition to GoPro's catalogue. The camera provides adequate framerate and pixel density options to magnificently capture all your memorable moments. If you are looking for a body mounted camera like will provide stellar captures with a bit lower price point this is the camera for you."
