Next GoPro Camera

Presently have a Hero 5, Black but am looking to purchase a second GoPro camera to be able to film from a different perspective. Having a hard time trying to decide between a second Hero 5, a Session 5, a Hero or ar a maybe Hero 4 Silver. What are your thoughts? Not opposed to buying off eBay or Amazon.

Hello and welcome to the forum!
As I was in your position I decided to buy a Session one (at that time the 4) because of the smaller size.
It's easy to use and good as second cam, in holidays I use the 6 as main cam and in the evening when we go out I take the smaller Session in my pocket.

Ciao Rob

Hero 5 session keeps all the same formats except 2k7 frame rate. like @Jatekman said but also remember you can not replace the battery, but can into tighter quarters, or have a screen. the hero 5 session are discontinued/.

If you are not in a rush Gopro will soon release new cameras , maybe there is something you may want to get but the price sticker may shock us? good luck in your choice and welcome to the forums
