Time for an upgrade: GoPro Hero5 Session

For those of you who don’t know, I shoot all my photos and video on a GoPro Session. It’s light, waterproof and easy to throw in my kit. Earlier this week, a friend at GoPro reached out asking if I’ve tried the Hero5 Session. I hadn’t, so three days later, a brand new camera showed up at my door and I’m stoked!

I haven’t had time to do a full, in depth review yet, but two things that stood out to me immediately are:

  1. Voice Command
  2. 90 fps filming

Now there are dozens of new features but these two are key! Voice command will allow me to stop and start filming just by talking to the camera, as opposed to using a remote, or pressing the button manually. HUGE in multisport where you’re hands may be otherwise occupied. The second feature may sound like a YouTuber dream, but I actually love it because almost all of my IG pics are pulled from GoPro video! With 90 frames to choose from per second (up from 45), I have a better chance of getting that crystal clear, perfect image (all about the gram)!

Here’s how it works:

Use the Capture App to find the point in the video you like


Select the individual frame you want and download as a high quality photo!

See what I mean? Magic.
