Today we take a closer look at the GoPro Hero Session. The smallest and lightest action cam from GoPro that we’ve enjoyed and still have. Because let’s face it, if you buy an action cam from Gopro, you’re always in the right place. We ourselves had an action cam from Denver at first but we were not really satisfied with it. The quality of the image was less and also the sound was not optimal. We are fans of the GoPro Cameras. And certainly from this GoPro session because this price quality is definitely in order. You already have these for a price of
which is really not so bad for GoPro camera.
The Hero 4 Session is 3.81×3.81 cm in size and weighs 73 grams. Which isn’t really big for an action camera. Because it weighs so little and is so small, you hardly feel it when you attach it to yourself or to your bike, for example. And with its 1080P Full HD and no less than 60 FPS, this camera makes very nice images. The photos are also fine with the 8-megapixel photo camera. It also has a Wi-Fi connection that allows you to connect it to your mobile phone or laptop (we are not a fan of it). The battery lasts about 1 hour and 45 minutes if you are filming all the time. This isn’t really that much, but for us personally enough. For a good storage you have to buy a microsd card yourself. The maximum depth for this camera in the water is 10 meters which is deep. This camera is also completely waterproof without anything to be attached to it… Which is handy. And especially less fiddling, which is nice.
At the touch of a button, the GoPro Hero 4 Session starts up and automatically starts recording video or timelapse photos. With a second push of a button, the camera stops and automatically goes off.
Do you want the camera to be automatically adapted to low light situations? Then opt for the Auto Low Light mode. The Frame rates are adapted to the lighting conditions for better low light performance.
With Protune, you can fully use the GoPro so you can make professional videos in cinema quality with a very small camera. Control the camera manually and get creative with the settings for color, iso value, white balance, sharpness and exposure.
Pros and Cons
- Not so big and heavy

- Gopro’s application
- Waterproof (up to 10 meters deep)
- Dual Microphone (Adjusts automatically when noise occurs)
- No screen (which makes you work on feeling)
- Wi-Fi connection to pc is less

With a mount you attach your action camera. There are several mounts for different activities. Note the mount’s mount attachment mode. With a head strap you can make video recordings from your field of view. With a chest mount, you’ll wear your action cam at chest height and with a helmet mount on your helmet. The latter is useful for sports such as mountain biking and climbing. You can buy it bundled in a box at
for a reasonable price. You can also buy these at GoPro itself, but this will be more expensive. And in our opinion the quality is certainly so good.
