GoPro Hero Session

 

The shrunken-down GoPro Session (previously the Hero4 Session) may not offer any performance gains over its big brothers, but it's still quite good and more fun to use than other action cams.

Light but not exactly the easiest to use

 

We bought this two weeks ago for our holiday in Jamaica. The photos seem darker than actual although they were clear. It seems easy to use when reading the instructions but during actual usage, it doesn't respond easily to the buttons and may take a...
