Rejoice all adrenaline lovers who love their actions to be kept on video in high detail: GoPro is launching the smaller, better, sleeker portable camera, Hero4 Session.
Since the launching of Digital Hero in 2007, GoPro rolled out one portable action camera after another, all enhanced for better performance. Hero4 Session is the tiniest redesign yet, without any compromise to quality.
Hero4 Silver and Hero4 Black GoPro cameras weigh 40 percent more than the Hero4 Session, which is also 50 percent smaller than the former. The 1 and a half inch cube is so small in fact that it easily fits in the palm of your hand.
Hero4 Session allows users to easily rotate the camera in the mounting frames due to its measurements. We say mounting frames as the Hero4 Session comes complete with a Ball Joint Buckle mounting frame, but it is compatible with other GoPro mounts too.
Some might find the loss of recording in 4K Ultra HD a drawback. Yet, do not fret. Video quality still features first, with the Hero4 Session being able to shoot in 1080p60, 720p100, as well as 1440p30. Stills can be shot in single, time lapse or burst modes.
Not everything is lost from previous GoPro portable action cameras. For instance, Hero4 Session still includes the AutoLowLight mode, as well as the SuperView mode – favorite for wide-angle shots.
Hero4 Session sports a dual microphone system. The front mic is built to switch to rear mic when the wind noise is too high, ensuring sound quality. The battery of Hero4 Session cannot be removed. Another feature is the MicroSD card slot. A MicroUSB port has kept as well.
One of the best features boasted by the Hero4 Session GoPro camera is that it’s been build to be waterproof as well as shockproof without the need to invest in extra accessories. Without being clad in any waterproof case, Hero4 Session goes as much as 33 feet underwater.
The CEO and founder of GoPro stated:
“With Hero4 Session, we challenged ourselves to produce the smallest, lightest, most convenient GoPro possible”.
Talk about saving, how about saving a few seconds for not clicking the power and record button too. For Hero4 Session, once you hit the power button, the GoPro camera starts recording.
A longer press on the power button enables time-lapse. Saving the video means another click of the power button and turning the camera off.
Hero4 Session will be hitting the market as soon as July 12th, for a price tag of 399.99 dollars. Purchase, mount, power on and enjoy the adventure!
