In my quest to learn how to v-blog with ease I have played around with a number of cameras. My old school Sony Handycam HDR-CX440 was my preferred choice until I bought some GoPro cameras.
My first GoPro was screen less then I bought a Session 4 and on a trip to Puerto Rico where I forgot my GoPro I purchased a Session 5. Now I have a 7 Black but before then I purchased the DJI Osmo Pocket.
The Osmo Pocket is a fantastic piece of hardware with a 3 axis gible and a small form factor. But to me its very sensitive and difficult to operate when I am not the subject.
So I reverted back to my Session 4 when I go on my trips. It’s small, waterproof but lacks image stabilization. That’s where the 5 comes in. It was the first unit to have image stabilization but now the 7 is the mack daddy of them all. It has near bible like steadiness.
My hesitation is that I am not used to the larger size. The Session was 1″ cubed and I had to do was point in the general direction and it gave me the general view I was looking for. But the 7 Black is too technologically advanced to ignore. But it has its downfalls. You have to take off the frame mount to access the charging port and sd card slot.
