H5 Session bugs and issues with how we connect and trasnfer

I am not a pro at this but I own both camera's and see  quite a difference if asked.

 

How do you connect to your   puter and shut down. the best way is to press shutter and when done Pull the cable.

 

Others will say they take out the sdxc , placeto a card adp.

 

If you do take the time to watch the clip you wil lsee there is a bug and issue,   if GoPro can simply  make it any esaier it be way to complicated.

 

Hero session  back button does not turn off camera via usb device, Hero 5  Session does

 

Hero session does not  connect via laptop and able to view, Hero 5 Session does.

 

Hero session does not record while connected to laptop, Hero 5 session does.

 

Yes these  are great extras but they are not noted. They are fund out by  the Consumer, and we all think they are issues, some are, others not.

 

On another side note why do we have a file  saving at 11 minute  plus and not 12 minutes exact , go figure.

I demonstrate the way we hook up to the driver, and you can see one is a simple shutter press, the other a back press quite confusing #gopro
