Not just hype
9 August 2017
This is a great action camera, at least at its current price (I admit the original price was too expensive for what it is). Works great as an action camera for videos and photos (think Lomo, as there is no screen). It also works perfectly as a car dash cam.
Its main advantages are being very small and inconspicuous, water tight without using a shell and very easy to mount/place where you want it. Image quality with good lighting is very good for a sensor of this size. While it obviously does not have the image quality of the bigger, more expensive GoPro cameras, it's completely acceptable considering this is an action camera and not meant to create professional-grade video footage (see Youtube videos for reference). It's definitely a lot better than the quality of most actions cameras of similar price.
The Session is a lot more robust and nicely finished than most action cameras at its price, which are usually more plasticky and cheap-looking. This is a very nicely finished camera, all parts look and feel good and sturdy.
Battery life is good considering the camera's size - I use it at 1080p 25 fps and I get about 1,5 to 2 hours of continuous footage, which is pretty good. Turning on the wi-fi function or raising the fps value seems to drain the battery a lot faster, but that is to be expected. You cannot replace the battery, which is a minus and probably the only thing I do not like about this cam (there is a second battery system you can attach to the camera, but that defeats the purpose of the unit, in my opinion).
All in all, this is a great little action camera and I recommend it.
