Does the Hero 5 Sessions actually have HDMI output?

I can't get a definite answer on this. Does the Hero5 Sessions actually have HDMI output? I've read many reviews that say it does, but no cable seems to be available, that I can find.

 

If it does, where does one get a cable for  HDMI? It must use the USB-C since there is no other connector. 

 

What is the part  number and source.  I can't find anything.  Everytime I search for HDMI Sessions HDMI all I get are cables that have micro HDMI which is a different connector.

 

A link would be nice, for a cable, if HDMI is actually supported.

 

Thanks

The HERO5 Session only has a USB-C port. It does not have an HDMI port.

Re: Does the Hero 5 Sessions actually have HDMI output?

I bought my hero 5 session and most my info comes from a manual and at gopro.com of it s features and functions, the only one I know of is hte Hero 5 black.  No  HDMI o nteh Session. why is it so  important to have HDMi so we all can understand what you want to use it for.

[ Edited ]

Does it invalidate my question because someone questions the need of the function?

 

I'm asking for the following reasons:

 

1) Reviews say it's available, via the USB-C

2) If a feature is available, I'd like to use it

3) I've been searching for a cable. Why do that, if it's not available. It would save me some time

4) It's much easier to play videos on my TV, via an HDMI cable, than removing the MicroSD card, plugging it into a computer, and sending the video to my TV.

 

Here

https://community.gopro.com/t5/Cameras/Hero-5-HDMI-out/td-p/14227

is a post saying it's available.  Other reviews say same thing. So I wonder what the true story is.

 

Hence my question

Ok?

I just returned from the NAB and the GoPro rep there showed us a Session that has BOTH  USB C and HDMI.  GoPro sells the HDMI cable as well.

As I said, it was shown to me at NAB by a GoPro rep.  However, most stores I visited today say no.  Others say yes.  None were willing to take the unit out of the package so that I could  exmaine prior to purchase.  I'm frustrated as you are.

Okay, just got off the phone with Samy's Camera in Los Angeles.  They opened up a Session 5 for me and YES, it DOES have an HDMI mini on it.  I'm purchasing one now.
