GoPro’s newest wearable camera is by far their best looking yet, but when it comes to its ability it doesn’t quite pack as much of a punch as some of its predecessors.
The GoPro Hero 4 Session measures less than 1.5 inches along every side of it’s waterproofed, visually-appealing cubed shape. It shoots 1440p video to 30 frames per second, 1080p up to 60 frames per second, and 720p up to 100 frames per second.
The Session is arguably the most simplest to use out of all the GoPro’s: you start it and stop it with just a press of a button, how traditional. The start and stop/on and off button is not only simple but effective too, it conquers the battery life issue that GoPro has always seemed to have struggled with.
Settings are controlled wirelessly via the GoPro companion app or the included WiFi remote, so if you’re used to changing settings on the go, that’ll certainly be a lot harder now.
The biggest benefit of the Session is definitely its looks and size, the Hero 4 Black and Silver aren’t exactly bulky, but snap them into a mount and you’ll certainly notices them, the same can’t be said for the Session at all.
The GoPro Hero 4 Session is available next week for a rather hefty $399. Find out more about it here.
