Hero4 Session is the Smallest Cam from GoPro

July 15, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

GoPro, the final word in current day action cam segment, has been seeking up for a bit of innovation with a compact cube-sized product, which the company was working on since 2011. And now after almost 4 years, the device has been hurled at the public.

The latest action cams from GoPro, and the smallest too, have come unto us.

Named the Hero4 Session, the camera grabs the slot for being the smallest in the segment from GoPro, packing a size 40% less than the current members.

With a measurement of 1.4-inches across the cube edges, the device weighs only 2.3 ounces.

Hero4 Session has also been made to operate without any complexes. A single tap button on its top has been designed to perform the whole process inside from turning it on to capturing the videos with just a single tap.

This has also wiped out the idling mode in the device, boosting the battery life for session recordings. The button can also be given a long press to start the time-lapse photo sessions.  There’s also another button that can be used to turn on/off the Wi-Fi connection.

Hero4 Session doesn’t offer 4K capture, and has raised the standards only to record 1440p videos at 30 frames per second, 1080p up to 60 frames per second, and 720p up to 100 frames per second.

Still images can also be captured at clarities of 8MP. It’s also water-resistant up to 10m (33ft), so users wouldn’t have to shell out some extra money for water-resistant cases.

GoPro hasn’t made any variation with the pricing of the device, however. Hero4 Session is priced at $399.99, falling in the same price bracket of the other models.

GoPro has also brought in some catchy new mounts for the new device, namely The Strap ($60), Ball Joint Buckle, and the like.
