      Answer

      According to Best Buy's own comparison chart, and GoPro's website, MiltonMan12 is incorrect. His differences are true for the Hero 5 and Hero Session, but not for the Hero 5 Session, which is what the question was about. Supposedly, according to Best Buy and GoPro, the Hero 5 and Hero 5 Session both have image stabilization and the video quality is the same.

              Yes it does. It is on one of the corners over the lens. It picks up great audio.

              Answer

              if shooting video or photos underwater you will want a underwater filter otherwise your colors won't look right. Those filters are usually pink or magenta in color. Are you going to hold the camera or mount it to a strap? There is a handle that attaches to the gopro that floats should you drop it. My snorkel mask has a gopro mount on it.

              128GB in capacity for all session cameras. If using "4K" setting, you will need a card with a "U3" rating.

              Answer

              I have used GoPro 5 sessions. I think this is a good one to mount on motorcycle. Is small and easy to mount. I like to use my phone to control it too. We use for business use. We custom Ducati, and test ride them. Daway

              Answer

              I'd go with a session. if you want good video and not a huge mount on your head then it is great. you can view what you recorded through the phone app. the benefit of the larger gopro has ended with this little guy. you will get the same quality. and less weight. the Hero 5 is really good for things that don't require a lot of mobility. i always found my Hero4 getting int he way, and i haven't had any issues with my session as of yet.
