Re: GoPro Launches Entry-Level HERO Camera 2018

[ Edited ]

@jims78751 you could always add an EcstaPro Extended Battery to a Hero5 Session. But then you would not be taking advantage of the Session's form factor. The Session works amazingly well for what I usually do, but I almost never need to film for very long periods of time. A Session with replaceable batteries would be an immediate buy for me.

 

*Edit: A Session with replaceable batteries and GPS tracking (in case anyone at GoPro reads this)

This link you posted does not say anything about a "replaceable battery" , it just says how long it charges and runs  , it does not say anything about a "separate" battery  , which is a deal breaker for a lot of us that use a GoPro for a few hours at a time , and don't want to wait for it to recharge

@jims78751
Not only did the GoPro moderator @ryanv12566 provide a link with battery record time, he also stated at the start of the post, "The Batteries are going to be replaceable! You can use both the HERO5 Black or HERO6 Battery!"
