A new Hero4 Session camera has just been unveiled by GoPro, which happens to be 50 percent smaller and 40 percent lighter than other models from its range. That being said, it still possesses a bevy of exciting features that prospective buyers will be pleased to look at.
Firstly, let us get the price out of the way. This tiny beast, as we prefer to call it, is set to be sold in the US soon at $399.99. The GoPro Hero4 Session of course retains the wide angle capabilities of its counterparts, while it possesses the ability to work underwater up to 10 meters without being housed in a case.
For photography enthusiasts, the Hero4 Session will provide 8MP stills with its wide FOV and 5MP ones with medium FOV. Coming to videos, this camera is capable of producing 1440p videos at 30 or 25fps and 1080p videos at a good 60fps (or 50, 30 and 25fps).
There’s no 240fps support onboard, but 720p clips can indeed be stretched up to 100fps. As you probably may have noticed by now, 4K videos are not possible on this new GoPro offering, but then again you’d be asking for too much from it if you want that much resolution from your videos.
There’s a Timelapse mode onboard apart from Bluetooh and Wi-Fi support for wireless connections with Android and iOS devices. This snapper comes with a microSD card slot and a micro USB port. There’s obviously no display on its front or its back, but it does hold a tiny strip on its top for showing vital details.
July 12 is when the GoPro Hero4 Session will be made available for purchase in the US at its above mentioned retail value of $399.99.
