The GoPro action camera family, now has a new member. As expected the new Hero4 Session is better built but also smaller and lighter.
In the 21st century being able to produce a small practical device is the sure key to success, and GoPro has done it more than once. Now with the new Hero 4 Session the company has managed to make a lighter and smaller device without discarding it’s high quality standards.
The GoPro Hero4 Session will become available on the U.S. market starting July 12 and will cost around $400 depending on retailer. However the price is more than acceptable considering the advantages it offers.
The size of the device is only one and a half inches, meaning that customers are encouraged to keep using the gadget in order to create fantastic and innovative images like the one we keep seeing on Facebook, YouTube and other media outlets.
The Hero4 Session is half the size of its predecessors and about 40 percent lighter, which is quite a feat when considering it can record almost the same type of quality images as it’s big brothers. However the 4k Ultra HD loss might upset some of the fan base.
The new device comes with a ball joint buckle mounting frame, that allows the user to conveniently rotate the camera without requiring the customer to stop in order to demount the camera. The Ball Joint Buckle boosts the advantages offered by the new device by making sure the user ca focus on the activity at hand without major interruptions, but the Hero4 Session will also be compatible with the classical mounting attachments.
The company seems to build on the strong points of it’s product. GoPro cameras have become extremely popular not because they were the best image recording devices out there, but because they offered very good mobility.
Users who wanted to record images of themselves while hiking, swimming or flying were not required to carry unnecessary wight as the devices were designed with adaptability in mind. This meant anyone could strap on a small, light and durable camera that did not require much focus to be diverted from their main activities.
Customers have attached GoPro cameras to dogs, cats and different moving objects, and while many of the images produced seem repetitive, some ideas are quite interesting. For the first time many people have seen a dog’s entire day from his level without the recording device being a nuisance to the animal.
Quality sound is still ensured by a dual microphone system that the Hero4 Session carries. While recording ,the main microphone will automatically switch to the rear one if the sound quality is bad because of traffic or other background noises.
The GoPro is also equipped with a Micro-SD card and a Micro-USB port, which along with the other features are completely waterproof and reliably anti-shock.
Since the company knows that a large number of it’s customers are interested in extreme sports, the developers made sure the camera can withstand both water pressure and rough use. Together with a special low profile frame the device has the lowest profile of any GoPro cameras, and can be used even at a water depth of 10 meters.
