GoPro Hero5 Session is the GoPro for people who don't want to look like a Teletubbie

 

After fumbling on price with the original Hero Session, GoPro put in some solid upgrades to make round two immediately more appealing.

The GoPro Hero5 Session is a big improvement in video and photo quality from the original Hero Session. Additions like voice control, electronic video stabilization and USB-C help justify the $100 price difference.
