    Default Anybody using GoPro Hero 5 or Session 5

    Would really like to get either one of them. I think the voice control would be a great idea when fishing and when you get a fish on, give the voice command to start recording or take a pic.

    My question is....how long does the battery last? From what i read, the unit has to be in standby mode to operate off of voice commands. If in standby, it would be eating up batter life.

    I thought about running a USB to my fish finder battery but if you take the door off to run the cable, it is no longer waterproof!

    Costco / Sams has the Hero5Session w/ Voice Remote (and i'm not sure what accessories) for $288 currently.

    I have several Hero 4's, and they do the job for now; however I do like the voice remote ability.

    Unless you are close to it the voice command is iffy and worse in the wind. It is easier ro just use the smart remote and pusd the button on it

    If you are not satisfied with the color or texture of your custom made Doc Irv baits just let me know and I will redo it at no cost to you to your satisfaction, because I am not happy unless you are happy.*

    I have both currently

    and i absolutely love them
    Battery is about hour n 20 minutes for both

    I actually just leave the side door off them and run a 6 ft USB C cable to a external power bank. 20k mAh. Keeps both cameras running 8-10 hours no issues

    I also use looping and just save the clips i want to keep my SD cards from filling up

    The voice command is great. It works perfect. I use an external microphone on the 5 black and it enhances the voice command from further distances.

    i 100% recommend these, even thought ive heard the hero 6 is coming in sept. maybe a little later and supposed to blow the 5s out of the water.

    Thanks Zack. I appreciate your feedback.....

    I was up at your store this week and picked up some supplies. Great store and very helpful staff.

    I'll checkout the 6 before I make any decisions but I appreciate the feedback about leaving the door off and running the external power. That is the information i was looking for.
