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.

Top Customer Reviews
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.Read more ›
I've tested it now for a couple of weeks. I had an issue where it wouldn't hold its charge for a single day, some research found you need to turn off the wifi then turn off the camera. Thankfully that solved it but this needs to be clearer, I didn't see that in the instructions or any reviews!
The camera connects to the gopro app a little slowly but the app works well on a LG G4. Don't be put off by the preview video as it's not the quality you'll get once the files are downloaded. The final negative is a 12min file of 2gb takes 2 hours to transfer to your phone, so each time I've had to remove the sd card and transfer to my phone via a PC.
Tested with a smatree chest mount running shooting 1080 60fps the quality is really good. On a motorbike you get an excellent view using this mount and impressive quality. I've also used a crocodile clip type mount I attached to my rucksack and again on a motorbike at high speeds and in the rain had no issues and quality of picture and sound is good.
Battery lasted 1hr 45min in 1080 60fps mode. Charged in about an hour.
The included low profile cage is much better than the standard one, I can't see why you'd use the latter. It even has a hole for a tether, ideal for paracord. I also rate the ball and socket mount that although stiff offers a lot of movement. Sadly it doesn't allow the session to sit flush for a really low profile footprint. I've therefore used the lowest mount supplied for the chest rig and the crocodile clip mount is built in so the session barely sticks out.Read more ›
2) To those people claiming that the wifi stays on when you turn it off and drains the battery (unless you use the gopro mobile app to turn it off)...there is actually a second button on the back of the device that allows you to scroll the wifi on/off as well as all of the other key settings.
It annoys me when people leave poor reviews simply because they are ill informed or can't be bothered to read the manual or seek advice.
I would highly recommend this gopro to anyone that is looking for a cheaper, but still fully packed, action camera. Yes it has it's flaws, one of which is that you cannot exchange the battery. But i think the positives outweigh the negatives considerably.
Give it a try, you won't be disappointed (if you know how to use it properly that is)! ;)
Note: As with any other major electronic purchase i make on here...I ordered directly from Amazon not a third party.
