GoPro Hero4 Session: A Great Small Camera With Big Action

The Hero 4 Session, GoPro's Smallest, Lightest Action Camera yet, Will Be Available for Purchase on Sunday, July 12 at B&H Photo

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - July 07, 2015) - The GoPro Hero4 Session is 50% smaller and 40% lighter than previous Hero 4 models. Sporting up to 1080p60 video capture (1920 x 1440 at 30 fps), notable design tweaks include a cube-like shape that can be virtually flush-mounted, as well as an integrated waterproof housing rated to 33'. Keeping things simple, the Hero4 Session uses a single button to power the camera on and to start recording. This doesn't mean it lacks customizable settings, though. Simply tether the camera to a Wi-Fi- or Bluetooth-enabled smart device, or the separately-available Smart Remote from GoPro, to tap into setting likes Ultra Wide and Medium field of view, select a preferred video resolution and frame rate, enable one of the still-photo modes, and more.

GoPro Hero4 Session delivers stunning video quality. Capture high-resolution 1440p 30 and 1080p 60 video that’s sharp and lifelike. High-frame-rate 720p 100 video enables exceptionally smooth slow-motion playback of your best moments.

A variety of photo modes allow you to capture 8MP single photos, time-lapse photos at set intervals from 0.5 to 60 seconds, and burst photos at 10 frames per second. When it comes to versatile photo capture, Hero4 Session has got you covered. The camera is rugged and waterproof to 33’ (10m), eliminating the need for a separate housing. Its convenient, ready-to-go design makes it easy to eternalize your session. A single press of the shutter button powers the camera on and begins capturing video or time-lapse photos automatically. A second press of the shutter button stops recording and powers the camera off.

It allows you to capture more of yourself and your surroundings in the shot -- resulting in captivating, ultra-engaging footage of every adventure.
