GoPro HERO 4 Session Review
If you are looking to record more of your adventures, but a classic digital camera would not do the trick, the GoPro HERO 4 Session is something you should look forward to. The camera is the latest installment in the GoPro series, and it comes with a wide range of improvements over its predecessors. To put it short, it is worth purchasing if you need a great solution for your video recording. Its price tag might feel a bit discouraging, but the first-person mode memories will quickly overcome this drawback.
Compared to other GoPro cameras, the GoPro HERO 4 Session is the most compact, having the smallest overall dimensions. The camera measures no more than an inch and a half on its widest side, and it weighs a mere 0.16 pounds, so it is nothing to be bothered about once you put it to work. Compared to other GoPro models, the current one seems the most versatile in terms of mounts; you can use a low-profile or a standard frame, but you can also switch to a ball joint buckle. Each of them comes with a series of advantages, but you can easily find out what is best for your needs.
If you have a passion for diving, it is almost guaranteed you will want to have a video camera underwater. The GoPro HERO 4 Session is the ideal candidate, especially because it does not need a case until 10 meters underwater. This way, you can maintain the low profile of the camera and not worry about it as you explore the sea. If, on the other hand, you end up using the camera above water and encounter strong winds, the GoPro will do a flawless job at reducing the annoying sound of wind.
Shooting 1080p videos at 60 frames per second is a breeze when you use the GoPro HERO 4 Session. 1440p video is also available, although you will be limited to 30 fps rates. 100 frames per second rates are ideal if you are interested in slow-motion video, but this setting is restricted to 720p video only. Photos can be taken with the camera, as well. You can take a single shot, you can opt for the burst modes with 10 fps rates, or you can create a time-lapse out of your journey, with photos taken at various intervals, anywhere between 0.5 and 60 seconds.
The Smart Remote can be used to control the camera, but this is a separate purchase. On the other hand, if you are interested in a free alternative, all you have to do is to install the GoPro App to your iOS or Android smartphone, and control the camera's features from there. The button located on the top of the GoPro HERO 4 Session is designed not just to turn on and off the camera. Upon pressing the button, the camera will also start recording or take photos in the time-lapse mode, so you can start the fun on-the-go.
