GoPro is back and blowing our minds yet again with their smallest, lightest and most convenient camera yet. Introducing the GoPro Hero4 Session.
The Hero4 Session is tiny. How tiny? Well it’s 50% smaller (about an inch each way) and 40% lighter (weighing in at 74g) than GoPro’s Hero4 Black and Silver.
Just like previous models, the Hero4 Session is compatible with the GoPro App or Smart Remote so you can easily refine controls and settings. It’s also naturally waterproof. This is still GoPro after all.
This also means that the Hero4 Session records 1080p video at 60fps, 720p at 100fps and 1440p at 30fps. The only disappointment is that there’s no 4K recording. But what it lacks in that department, it makes up for with spades of convenience.
Operating the Hero4 Session is easier than any of GoPro’s other cameras, with one single button used to perform the vast majority of its functions. A quick press of the shutter button turns the camera on, starting video capture automatically. Press it slightly longer and the camera is powered on but switches it to Time Lapse photo capture mode. Press the button one more time to save your recording or photo and the same button with turn the GoPro off too!
There’s obviously plenty of specially designed mounts and accessories to go with the Hero4 Session as well: The Low-Profile Frame gives the Hero4 Session the lowest profile of any GoPro camera; alternatively use the Standard Frame with GoPro mounts to create a wide array of ultra-compact gear setups; or finally the Ball Joint Buckle gives you the freedom to change things up without having to stop and un-mount the camera.
We love the look of the GoPro Hero4 Session and can’t wait to get our hands on one. It’ll set Joes back £329.99 from the GoPro Hero4 Session Website where you can also find more details.
