The latest addition to the GoPro line-up is called Hero4 Session. Incredibly easy to use just by pressing one single button.
GoPro wearable camera maker launched its smallest, lightest, and most convenient camera to date. Hero4 Session is 50 percent smaller and 40 percent lighter than Hero4 Silver or Black, looking like a small cube (last year's Polaroid Cube+ Action camera, anyone?).
Session is sleek, incredibly wearable, easily mountable, convenient and ready to go. With it you can take a dive up to 10 meters deep without requiring separate housing. Inside that waterproof cube is a microSD card slot, a micro-USB port and a nonremovable, bulit-in battery, which allows for a 2-hour-shooting session on a single charge.
With just one press of the shutter button you power on the camera and begin recording video or shooting Time Lapse photos automatically. When you press the button again, the camera stops recording and turns itself off.
Session is capable of capturing 8-megapixel photos, which is much less than many of today's mobile phones; it creates videos up to 1080p at 60 fps, 1440p (4:3) at 30 fps, 720p at 100 fps and more. There sadly is no 4K, nor 2.7K modes that are included in Hero4 Silver and Black edition cameras.
The little cube camera also features two microphones: one on the front of the camera and one on the back. The camera automatically switches to the microphone that is best-suited for capturing optimal audio in various circumstances depending on (weather) conditions and activities.
With the built-in Wi-Fi or Bluetooth you can control your Session remotely with your phone or tablet, view the videos and photos you've captured and share your favorites on Instagram or Twitter – all you need is to connect with your GoPro App.
GoPro Hero4 Session will cost you 429,99 EUR. A bit too much?
