Annoying that it doesn't do 1080p/60/medium as I shoot in that aspect ratio alot though it may not bother others.

Amazing price, makes me think the new lower cost version is about to launch, but don't let this put you off buying this, the new cheaper version could probably have missing functions and not be as good like the non session version does.
By the time I’ve bought spare batteries and mounts I’d be up to £200

GoPro are stepping away from the cube formatt. The standard hero is the replacement for the session line.

There isn't a spare battery option available on the sessions.

And that that would all be the same case if the product was still £200, you'd want mounts right? So the saving is still there.

its a sealed unit so cant take spare batteries and you can buy big bundles of generic go pro mounts and harness for like £10-20 off ebay or amazon . Gearbeast is a great place too if you dont mind waiting a week plus for stuff .

I think they will change their mind, or may have already done so. Many people are moving to alternative brands because the cube one was stopped. We will see.

Go pro are pushing their ill received hero entry level now as i'm pretty sure they discontinued the session ( dumb move if you ask me) . Personaly id take a yi lite even needing a waterproof case over the hero any day of week for cost versus quality

considering the specs on this and it can actually do 4k in a usable frame rate it's a steal.
Is this equivalent to the 2016 or 2017 model listed on Amazon? amazon.co.uk/gp/…e=0

The 2016 model is £119, the 2017 is £141

Any help appreciated. Thanks

It would be nice to see it happen, I'd love the session to stay but I can't see it my self. Having a second format to the traditional one is expensive and the company isn't turning over the money they need to right now

Are you sure? What's the difference between them? I have the 2017 on order from Amazon and not sure whether to go for this chepaer one instead.

Sorry don't think I was clear - I was also asking the question, not sure which version it is or indeed what the differences are.
Just spoke to Argos via Facebook and they ahve confirmed its the 2017 model.
Cheers OP this is an awesome deal, especially with one £10 voucher (and potentially two £10 vouchers). Been after one for ages and at this price too good to turn down.

Now I can finally bore people to death with activity videos soundtracked by obscure ‘punk’ bands/DJs who no-one listens to for a good reason.

Except if you knew anything about the Session 5 you'd know the battery isn't replaceable.

This is a cracking deal for the Session, there's nothing in this price range that can beat it.

Just checked Amazon and the 2017 version has a different barcode to the 2016 one?

2016 (same as Argos):

EAN: 0818279018165

2017:

That's exactly what I did a couple of weeks ago...should have known this would happen!

Although you can't change the battery I'm a big fan of the Sessions particularly as in most cases I don't actually need long continuous recording and makes it easier in editing to just take highlight clips.

ok i "may" have been slightly over enthusiastic in my praise of the op here , but in my defence everything else i said was true so i feel spur of the moment it was justified .

also having picked mine up from local argos ( thank you family members who keep giving me argos vouchers i never use as presents) i can confirm mine at least is 100% 2017 model

I've seen people use these handheld but they're really designed to be used mounted to something, they're to small to properly hold (usually I see them with selfie sticks instead), they have an ultra wide field of view and there's no viewfinder or screen.

I've been getting around a couple of hours in 1080p mode on mine although haven't tried it on 4K yet where it's meant to get around an hour. I don't think it's a great camera for commuting as the battery isn't replaceable.

no such thing as a spare battery for a Session as they are built in and cant be replaced That said, they blow the standard GoPros out of the water when it comes to battery life...I recently ditech my GoPro 4 Blacks and have three of the sessions now which are brilliant.

The major differences of the 5 compared to the 4 are voice control (for start and stop) and stabilised video....(it crops the final video to do so and this only works on 1080p and not the 4k video).

I use a session 4 on my bike and it’s brilliant. Keep a charger cable at work, dead quick to charge. I cycle 1 hour each way and charge it up twice a week without really checking battery.
Any good compared to Yi 4k 30fps version?
Picked up two of these and can confirm that they are the 2017 model.
This or Xiaomi Mijia?

I have one reserved. Anyone used it for scuba diving?
Picked mine up from my local (Lincoln Carlton) and can confirm it is the 2017 model!

Perfect timing as I'm off to Iceland in a week- just need a good harness for it now!
What’s the difference between this 2017 version and the 2016 version? Sorry if it’s noob question
can you use nectar points plus cash to buy this?I got 50pounds worth of nectar points and was thinking to use them now
Wow! This is a bargain, on Amazon it costs £250
Hi guys, I’ve only yesterday started researching gopros, but what is the major difference(s) to this model? amazon.co.uk/dp/…_it Sorry for the easy (lazy) question. Thanks in advance for your help

This is a now discontinued model, the new Hero has replaced this at the bottom end.
Has anyone seen any option for a wired connection that retains waterproofing on their travels? Considering having one as my dashcam on the motorbike but the battery life is a deal breaker for that purpose (about 3 hours a day on the road)
60 FPS 4K ?

Get one of these extended batteries, comes with waterproof case and a custom mount. Well worth the price.
