Wanted - GoPro Hero Session 5
« on: December 05, 2018, 06:47:13 AM »
My Hero Session 5 has DIED!

After 2 years and more than 300+ sessions of endless love from the 'Session' the hatch opened on a beautiful day and she was dead.

The Zone has been great about recycling and paying it forward.  Anyone out there who is NOT using, would like to donate or sell their working GoPro Session 5 please ping me.

I promise to keep all the photos and video's flowing from this device back to the Zone.

I've seen some Sessions in the GoPro display cases recently. I can't remember where, but they were in some of the surf shops in San Clemente and Dana Point areas. I remember telling the employee that they don't make those anymore. It might have been a Jacks surf shop or Stewarts, but with over probably 40 shops in the area it's hard to remember which one??? I know I saw them.. Maybe GoPro has a listing of all the displays in the area, and you could cold call them?

Actually, it looks like B&H camera has them still.

And that reply was the kiss of death - mine just stopped working. Tried the normal reset, etc. nothing and it's warm to the touch. On with GoPro support to see what they will do now. Probably going to just move to a cheap knock-off or something unless they can replace.

Bummer Beash!
Sorry I have no Sessions to pay forward  :-[
Funny thing is.... today, I told my daughter that I was giving her the Hero 3+, that you gave to me!
She's off to Portugal and needed an action cam..... your gift keeps giving  ;D ;D

Mine Sessions4 died the day I got to Thailand.
I picked up my new one from B&H Photo, online when I got home.
I buy all my camera stuff from them.... very reliable!

Link to their Sessions5 (in stock) $199

Good to know.  Yes I still have a couple of GoPro 3's handy but once you get used to the Session nothing else will do. 

Ruby is back from School this week so I need to be camera ready.   Then again the forecast is climbing from a modest 10 to 15 feet all the way to 30 to 40 feet a week from today Dec 17th.  That should make for some good family time surfing.
