GoPro Hero 4 Session


The Hero4 Session is GoPro's smallest action camera ever and has been designed to be as unobtrusive as possible, whether strapped to the front of a ski or attached to the end of a guitar.

Small and tough ; Water resistant without a case ; Decent battery life ; Solid audio capture

Video quality not as good as Hero4 Silver ; Battery not removable

GoPro Hero4 Session review


The biggest name in action cameras just got a whole lot smaller

Tiny, sturdy and waterproof ; One-button operation ; Good video and photo quality

Expensive ; No screen

The best tiny action cam? We think so

GoPro Hero4 preview: Filming Danny MacAskill with the new Hero4 Black and Hero4 Silver action cameras - Pocket-lint


As we press the big red and black record button of the new GoPro Hero4, Danny MacAskill, pro trials and stunt cyclist, leaps into action jumping onto a

The new GoPro Hero4 range is very impressive and offers plenty to those who are already users of the camera as well as to newcomers alike.

GoPro Hero4 Session review


It's hip to be cubed

Minimal size and weight ; Low-profile mounting options ; One-touch operation ; Excellent video quality

Very expensive compared with rivals ; App needed to adjust most settings ; Slow to respond with some MicroSD cards

Stripped down to the basics, the Session is the smallest and lightest GoPro yet. The streamlined design makes for easier mounting and operation, and video quality is as good as ever, but the high price is hard to justify.

GoPro Hero4 Session review: GoPro squares off against competitors with the Session


The cube-shaped Session is the smallest, lightest GoPro yet, and is the first to go waterproof without a housing.

The GoPro Hero4 Session addresses the main design sticking points with previous GoPro cameras: It's smaller, lighter and waterproof without a housing; the new shape allows for more flexible mounting; it's fast to start/stop recording; and its new mic...

The built-in battery means no swapping out for a fresh pack to keep shooting. It needs to be wirelessly connected to Android/iOS device or GoPro remote (not included) to change settings.

GoPro sheds its housing for the Hero4 Session, an excellent POV camera that's ready to capture what the day brings -- in or out of the water -- at the press of a button.

GoPro Hero4 Session review: Ousted by the Hero 5 Session?


The GoPro Hero 4 Session has been knocked off the top spot by the Hero 5, but is still a great action camera

New compact design ; Waterproof ; Now super cheap

Lacking in some features ; No 4K video recording

GoPro cuts Hero4 Session camera price again after sales fail to take off


The waterproof cube-shaped camera is the company's smallest, but it looks like it'll take an equally petite price to spark sales.

GoPro expands entry-level lineup with $199 Wi-Fi-enabled Hero+ camera, cuts $100 from Hero4 Session price


The new model sheds the touchscreen of its linemate, the Hero+ LCD, sliding in under that model, but above the very basic Hero.

The Session is looking like one of the best GoPro models yet, and it looks like it's the future for the company too - but that's also a problem for this model. Its video quality, while great for its size, suffers from exactly that too. It's not as...

As the smallest, tiniest GoPro in the range, this should be on your shopping list if you really need an action cam you can literally put anywhere, as it won't weigh you down and your only concern will be about losing it. The video quality is not as...

GoPro Hero 4 Session: Smallest, lightest, most convenient GoPro yet [REVIEW]


The GoPro Hero 4 Session is the smallest GoPro action camera ever. It's 50 percent smaller and 40 percent lighter.

Ultra tiny size ; Completely sealed waterproof design ; Excellent video quality ; Fast, single-button recording ; Better sound from underwater

Non-removable battery ; No 4K video recording ; Requires Class 10 or UHS-1 microSD card speed ; Doesn't work with capacities higher than 128GB;

The GoPro Hero 4 Session is what all future GoPros will look like: tiny, completely waterproof without any extra casing and terrific sounding.
