GoPro Session discontinued?

There is no GoPro Hero Session and GoPro Hero Session 5 after the release of new GoPro Hero (without numbers)

Quote:
GoPro Hero replaced the GoPro 5 Session. It's no longer available on the official website, but you can still buy GoPro 5 Session online.
I was waiting for a new Hero 6 Session actually. Sad to hear that.

It is so comfortable because of its size and weight. Why do they discontinued it Is there any possibility GoPro is planning to release a new Session model? Or should I buy this Hero (2018)?

Hello and welcome to the forum!

Neither I nor somebody else can say what GoPro is planning in the future, decisions in the past show us how unpredictable they are.
I would take the latest Session and get happy, don't forget that battery is not changeable.

GoPro marketing team discontinued the Session Line up, they a re still at the Retail stores and elsewhere. they may release a Hero 6 with a bolt on and replacement battery. that will be their next Model.

so in the mean time you have to wait and see or move on.

Just read somewhere that they have released a cheaper less feature rich model based on 5 and 6 and will keep the Session line around, less because of pricing than for the form factor some like. So you might see it supported for a couple of more years.

no, the Session (4 & 5) have already been dropped from the official line-up. If they had planned to release a Hero 6 Session I can't see why they wouldn't carry on the 5 till it was released

put yes they have just released the GoPro Hero, identical to the Hero 5 & 6 Blacks but very VERY basic

That Gopro Hero was what I was referring to, not a new Session version. I was not clear. Sorry.

i've been looking for any confirmation that gopro will not continue the session lineup. So far i've found nothing official. If they wanted to sell through the current session 5, then it wouldn't make sense to announce a 6 is coming. personally i'm going to wait a bit, my session 5 still works, but it's not going to last forever. I so want a hero 6 session, i can not do what i do with the other hero cameras,well, i could, but the risk of breaking them is much, much, much higher!

it will happen, because nobody is strapping a hero 6 with that giant lcd screen they don't need to their dirt bike, sport bike, racing drone, skate board or any other true action sport out there that uses video cameras. Frankly, noboby makes anything comparable, it would be silly not to keep making it, unless of course they are actually loosing money on every sale, which i seriously doubt.

Of course it wouldn't be the first bad decision gopro has made.
