  1. Can you record while charging? And can you charge the unit via a receptacle, ie., usb into an adapter for the wall?

  2. Thank you so much, you saved me and my mom. Unless we misplaced them, our camera seemingly didn’t come with instructions.

  3. HI great video. I have an issue my fiance bought me the gopro 5 session for scuba diving. Unfortunately gopro does not provide the supersuit for it?? Any suggestions, I usually dive deeper than 33ft.

  4. The finest tutorial on youtube. Many thanks for making a needlessly challenging menu system relatively easy to navigate.
