A small but very bright white text on black LCD screen keeps you up to date on the cameras settings, although setting changes need to be carried out via the App or GoPro Remote (not included).
In the image above you can make out a ridge on both the front and back of the camera. This helps lock the camera into the Frame and prevents the camera being knock out.
Behind the one door is a slot for the Micro SD Card and a port for the USB transfer/charging lead. This lead is supplied within the accessory pack but it has to be noted that this is different to the USB leads used on the GoPro Hero 4 and 3+ cameras.
Other than the items already mentioned you also get a new ball joint QR, paperwork, sticker, and two sticky mounts.
Interestingly both the ball joint and the low profile frame mount use a new rubber piece to lock the QR in place.
The table in the image below compares all of the GoPro range currently available to purchase even if they are discontinued.
The LED in the top right hand corner (front) and bottom right (back) flash red when recording and blue when WiFi is switched on. If both are occurring the flashes alternate between red and blue.
My thoughts after a few months now are mixed. I love the size and the shape of the session. The low profile mount also makes it great for helmet use. However battery life isn’t great (about half that of a Hero 3+) but you can work around this by using the camera when only actually required. This saves searching through loads of footage at the other end anyway.
The one thing that has got me narked is the way in which the WiFi switches on and off through the use on the rear. It’s not bad it’s just totally different to every other GoPro.
