If only a month ago GoPro was showing us its Hero+ LCDToday, they take another turn and show us their smallest camera so far, the new GoPro Hero 4 Session. This cube-shaped camera (in fact, it is very reminiscent of the Polaroid Cube) is capable of recording video up to 1440p at 30 fps, and the more traditional 1080p at 60fps. It is adapted to use underwater (up to 10m) internally, so it does not require an external housing that adds size and, above all, allows sound recording to be of much higher quality.

This miniaturization leads to the loss of the display screen. However, it keeps a small screen to show information of the capture mode. There are two buttons, but the operation will be done with only one. The main button, red and with a circular shape, turns on the camera and allows to start the recording. A new press to stop the recording and the camera will be turned off. The other button is used to turn on and off the WiFi connectivity.

Having only two buttons available forces us to use the application on our mobile phone to change the mode in which the camera takes pictures. Once you have selected the desired photo mode, one press on the button for 3 seconds will allow the picture to be taken (single, burst or time-lapse mode). This connection will be made via WiFi or Bluetooth, as the GoPro chip incorporates both standards. We can also use the GoPro remote control.

The Hero 4 Session offers a range of between one and two hours of continuous use. Unfortunately the battery is not removable, but because of the way it operates (automatic on/off for recording) the duration is longer than that if you are only going to record certain parts of your adventure.

But let's go with the cold numbers, which I'm sure more than one is coming.

GoPro has already published a video with examples of how to use the camera.

I don't know why, but these promotional videos are always cooler than mine.

GoPro Hero 4 Session, availability and pricing

Soon we will be able to find it in stores. In fact, in the USA it will be available throughout the next week. As for its sale price, it will be 429 euros in Europe.

In the absence of testing the camera thoroughly, the format seems to me very appropriate, especially for the fact that we can remove the waterproof housing and allow the sound recording is finally of the highest quality. What I do not think the new Hero 4 Session is very competitive is in terms of price. Of course everything depends on the overall quality of its set (optics, sound quality, general operation, etc.) so until I have a unit to make all the appropriate tests I can not make a full assessment of it.
