I've decided to get this latest GoPro camera model, Hero5 Session, for our upcoming vacation. Does anyone have it? If so, how do you like it? This will be my first GoPro. Hopefully I've made the right choice.

I like how small and light it is even by GoPro's standards. And the specs look pretty good too:
  • Photo: 10MP / 30 FPS burst time lapse
  • Video: 4K30/1440P60/ 1080P90 (High bitrate video: 60Mb/s)
  • Selectable field of view: SuperView, Wide, Medium, Linear, Narrow
  • Waterproof: 33FT (10M) (no additional casing required!)
  • Video stabilization (digital)
  • Voice Control (not sure if I need that, but I'll find out soon enough)
The main disadvantages of this model, as I understand, are the absence of the display and a non-removable battery. But for my purposes that shouldn't present any problems.

So far I really like it! The absence of the LCD display apparently is not a problem because I can use the iPhone app via Wi-Fi Direct. That actually works much better than any built-in display because I can control the camera and view both live and recorded video remotely.

Later this month I am going to take my GoPro on a trip. That will be a real test!
