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.

Compact, low-profile design. Simple-to-use, always-on operation. Great video quality. Improved audio. Waterproof without bulky housing.

Expensive. Same-price Hero4 Silver performs better. No live-recording preview.

Conclusions We first wrote that GoPro breathed new life into its action camera lineup with the Hero4 Session last year as a smaller, simpler take on its classic formula. This time around, GoPro breathes new life into the Hero4 Session by renaming it...

Best value GoPro

 

I was really tired of the poor sound quality from my GoPro hero 3+ . The 3+ uses the waterproof housing and this limits the sound that can be picked up by the mic. The sessions 4 has not got this problem as the camera unit is waterproof and does not...
