GoPro HERO4 Session
GoPro – It’s a name that you’ll associate with death-defying stunts and unbelievable feats, performed by daredevils and stuntmen who record their acts using GoPro’s line of action cameras. Recently, the company’s HERO4 action camera lineup received a newly designed camera: the GoPro HERO4 Session. Designed to be more compact and versatile than its predecessors, the HERO4 Session comes with all the standard offerings of a GoPro camera, and more.
A Different Form of Compact
Weighing a mere 74g and both visually and physically smaller than the HERO4 Black and Silver flagships, the HERO4 Session’s sleek and machine-cut cubic design is a far cry from the standard GoPro HERO designs. Inspired by what they have created, GoPro was also able to create a whole new range of accessories for the HERO4 Session, such as the glove attachment, which allows you to mount the HERO4 Session directly on to your hand; a feat that none of the previous GoPro action cameras could do.
Sealed with a Promise
The cubic design of the HERO4 Session is the first of its kind for GoPro. Built in a pneumatically-sealed factory, its camera design is uniquely built inside the chassis, and not designed to jut out from it like the HERO4 Black and Silver editions. Because of the nature of its construction, the HERO4 Session is extremely durable and waterproof without the need for the usual waterproofing and shockprotection accessories.
Between Movie and Real Life
MWhile it may not record in 4K resolution, the HERO4 Session is nevertheless capable of recording video at a maximum resolution of 1440p/30, and at a wide angle mode to boot. You can also use the GoPro Remote, courtesy of the GoPro app on your phone (available as a free download from Google Play or Apple App Store), to lower the resolution down to either 1080p/60 for a smoother video experience, or WVGA at 120 fps if you’re simply looking to conserve space on your microSD card.
