Rikki, Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Small, very easy to use and can easily preview the videos with the app on your phone. Very good quality video and sound and the general build quality is second to none.
Bad points:
As with all gopros it's not exactly inconspicuous but much better than the bigger brothers.
It does occasionally decide to change beeps for recording. Sometimes it's one beep, other times three.

Camcorders Buying Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

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,1 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.

HERO4 Session comes with specially designed mounts and accessories that work seamlessly with other GoPro gear to give you more mounting options than ever.

HERO4 Session delivers stunning video quality. Capture high-resolution 1440p30 and 1080p60 video that’s sharp and lifelike. High frame rate 720p100 video enables exceptionally smooth slow-motion playback of your best moments.

Nail the shot with a variety of photo modes. Capture 8MP single photos, Time Lapse photos at set intervals from 0.5 to 60 seconds, and Burst photos at 10 frames per second. When it comes to versatile photo capture, HERO4 Session’s got you covered.

HERO4 Session captures 1080p30 Ultra Wide video and 8MP Time Lapse photos at 0.5 second intervals right out of the box. You can also access most of the modes of other HERO4 cameras using the GoPro App or Smart Remote.2 From single photos to Time Lapse photos, Burst photos to Looping Video—HERO4 Session does it all. You can also use the app or remote to easily adjust settings like video resolution, frame rate, field of view and more.

HERO4 Session is rugged and waterproof to 33’ (10m), 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.

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.

Let the camera do the thinking for you. Auto Low Light mode intelligently changes frame rates based on lighting conditions for optimal low-light performance, enabling you to move between bright and dark environments without having to adjust your camera settings.
