The Hero session is the lightest and smallest till date , it was launched in 2015 and is the first product we were introduced to whose whole body is water resistant, its first price was placed too high to about $400 bit now it is priced ad low as $150 (£150, AU$220) and is the current entry-level model.
The hero session has a non-removable battery , a square body , a mountable gear accessories which can be easily mounted , it has two buttons on the screen which makes it difficult and needs lots of patience when changing the settings. it’s video recording capabilities is top notch with an incredible spec of 1,920×1,440 at 30fps, but most users intend to set it to 1080p at 60fps or 720p at 100fps. And these camera is mostly recommended when take a steady image, mostly preferable for a aim and shoot capture, and can be mounted anywhere with ease and is available at Amazon.
The Hero5 Session’s design is almost similar to that of the original, its waterproof. When turned on it records with a single button , it also has a non-removable battery built in it , but it’s video recording capabilities is far different from the original session with a 4k resolution at 30fps and 1080p at 90ftps , and the photo quality is great as well.
