Hold on to those handlebars! Better yet, shoot a video of holding on to those handlebars with GoPro’s latest Hero4 Session that promises to be a revelation.
Almost a decade ago, GoPro started its own adventure with cameras designed especially for adrenaline lovers, when releasing Digital Hero back in 2007. Ever since, one camera rolled out after another, increasing design efficiency and features.
Hero4 Session comes to topple all GoPro action cameras before, with the tiniest, sleekest and performant design.
Tiny? Yes, as Hero4 Session is 40 percent less heavy than Hero4 Silver or Hero4 Black, and 50 percent smaller. With its cubic design, each side measures one and a half inch, nicely tucking in the palm of a hand.
Hero4 Session has its own mounting frame, Ball Joint Buckle, yet it is made compatible with other GoPro mounting frames as well. Not only that, but it rotates so easily in its mount that all angles and captures are impossible to miss.
One setback for some of the GoPro fans might be the loss of 4D Ultra HD recording. Nonetheless, Hero4 Session keeps image quality standards at 1080p60, 720p100 and 1440p30, with the perk of shooting stills in burst, time lapse and classic single modes.
Features of previous GoPro cameras are still alive and well with Hero4 Session. AutoLow Light will provide a clear shot image, while SuperView mode is bound to offer the great wide-angle shots that GoPro users look for.
Sound quality is also boosted with the dual mic system. The front mic was designed to switch to rear if the wind noise is too disturbing to record perfect sound quality. With the microSD card slot and the microUSB port comes an in-built battery.
One statement from the CEO of GoPro reads:
“With Hero4 Session, we challenged ourselves to produce the smallest, lightest, most convenient GoPro possible”.
Convenient indeed, as the action camera does not require additional equipment to protect it from water or shock. The casing of Hero4 Session is at the same time waterproof and shockproof. Without the added accessories, Hero4 Session can go 33 feet underwater.
Another tweak comes with the power button. For Hero4 Session, clicking the power button means instant recording, compared to Power then Record commands with previous GoPro cameras. Hold the power button just a little longer and time-lapse mode is enabled. Save your video with a second click on the power button and turn the camera off for power saving.
GoPro is releasing Hero4 Session in just a couple of days, on July 12th. The price will be of 399,99 dollars.
