HERO4 Session packs the power of GoPro into our smallest, lightest, most convenient camera yet—featuring a rugged and waterproof design, easy one-button control, 1080p60 video and 8MP photos.
50% smaller and 40% lighter than other HERO4 cameras, HERO4 Session is the most wearable and mountable GoPro ever. With a sleek, versatile design, it's at home anywhere—from the surf to the snow to hanging with friends.
Easy one-button control.
A single press of the shutter button powers on the camera and begins capturing video or Time Lapse photos automatically. A second press of the shutter button stops recording and powers off the camera. It's that simple.
Durable + Waterproof.
HERO4 Session is rugged and waterproof to 33 Feet (10 meter), eliminating the need for a separate housing. Its convenient, ready-to-go design makes it easy to get out the door quickly to capture and enjoy your session.
Ultimate mounting flexibility.
HERO4 Session comes with specially designed mounts and accessories that work seamlessly with other GoPro gear to give you more mounting options than ever.
The battery is built directly into the camera and offers up to 2 hours of recording time on a full charge. The included USB cable allows for charging the camera with your computer or the GoPro Auto or Wall Charger.
Easily adjust modes + settings.
HERO4 Session captures 1080p30 Ultra Wide video and 8MP Time Lapse photos at 0.5 second intervals right out of the box. Easily adjust these settings on the camera or change all modes and settings with the GoPro App or Smart Remote.
Dual mic system.
HERO4 Session features two microphones: one on the front of the camera and one on the back. When you're filming in windy conditions or during high-speed activities like motorsports, the camera automatically switches to the mic that's best-suited for capturing optimal audio.

BOTTOM LINE: You need to decide if you want a removable battery. If you don't plan on filming more than two hours at a time, the GoPro HERO4 Session is a great choice. If you don't want a camera with a view screen, and you don't need swappable batteries, this is the camera to get.
I own a few GoPros. When the HERO4 Session came out it was $400, and quite frankly, the smaller size was not worth the price for most cases. But now at $200 the Session is competing with the lower tier GoPros, and it blows them out of the water.
There are many different models, so I'm going to boil them down into three choices. These are my overall recommendations for GoPros, including the Session.
Choice #1: Price is the most important factor to you. Get the GoPro HERO. It's affordable ($129 for now), simple to use, and works great for many, many uses.
Choice #2: You are willing to pay a bit more for some nice features, but you aren't a power user and you don't plan on filming over two hours of footage between charges. Get the GoPro HERO4 Session (the product for this review).
Choice #3: You need a viewscreen on the camera, or swappable batteries, or don't care about price. Get the GoPro HERO4 Silver
The lack of a removable battery is a downside. While a 64GB memory card will hold a ton of footage, the battery will only last a couple hours. Not being able to swap the battery in a matter of seconds and start filming again means the larger memory card is less useful. This is a problem if you want to do really long timelapses, since the battery will run out every couple hours.
For $200 this is a great camera, and it has become my go-to recommendation since the price cut. Some people (like me) need/want the additional features of the HERO4 Silver, but for most people the HERO4 Session is worth the extra $70 over the baseline GoPro price.
Please feel free to ask any questions in the comments. Cheers!
The Session dominates in three areas.
1. Point-of-View Shots / Very light weight and compact reduces fatigue.
2. More Mounting Options / Auto-rotates video when mounted upside-down.
3. Waterproof without a Case / Piece of mind regardless of where you’re using it
The Perfect Point-of-View (POV) Action Camera
The new lightweight and compact design is perfect for reducing fatigue on weight sensitive activities. It might not be noticeable, but certain mounting a GoPro on a Crossbow or Forehead mount long enough and you’ll notice the difference. Some good examples of activities where the Session would shine as a POV would be:
The Perfect Secondary Action Camera
Although the Session is ideal for POV shots, it lacks the 4K video quality that most expect from GoPro products. This is where why the Session is better utilized as a Secondary action cam.
Hero 4 Session – POV Shots
Hero 4 Black – Everything Else Shots
Ease of Use
The two button design was very simple to use. The large button for record and the small one to activate the wifi. This is GoPro’s way simplifying the experience, while allowing anybody with a smartphone to use it as a viewfinder and to change the settings.
All in all, I like the Session, but not the price tag. Yes, the video can always be better, but for the size, one can't complain.. except for the price.
Should you buy one?
If you're looking for a sleek new action cam for mounting in certain locations like a helmet, fishing rod or someplace where weight and size matters, then YES, you should get one. But keep your other GoPro for those other mounting locations for better video quality.

Ok: This is what I dig about the Session:
1. Simple, simple and simple. Software works great.
2. Quality is just great, product, picture and build
3. Small, small and super small.
I still have the Hero 3 Silver, and I do not know if I will use it again. But for the price now the Session is just great to have, even if it is the secondary camera. For me it will be the first. Of course Go Pro must be freaking out that they have no margin on this product and I am not sure what will happen to them; but for under $200 bucks, it is a no brainer. There are a ton of You Tube videos on it, and most seem very accurate especially with the comparison to the Polaroid. I believe in this case you will get what you pay for.
