Smallest, lightest GoPro yet.

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.

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.
 
 

Standard Frame

Use the Standard Frame with GoPro mounts to create a wide array of ultra compact gear setups.

 
 

Professional video quality 

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.

Powerful photo capture 

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.
 

 

 

Access all modes + adjust settings with the GoPro App or Smart Remote 

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.

Durable + waterproof 

HERO4 Session is rugged and waterproof to 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.

 

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.

 

World’s most immersive video 

HERO4 Session features SuperView, a GoPro-exclusive video mode that captures the world’s most immersive wide-angle field of view. It allows you to capture more of yourself and your surroundings in the shot—resulting in captivating, ultra engaging footage of every adventure.

 

 

Auto Low Light 

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.

 

Protune for video 

Protune unlocks the camera’s full potential, delivering minimally compressed, cinema-caliber video optimized for professional productions.

 

HiLight Tag your best moments 

HiLight Tag enables you to mark key moments while recording so you can quickly locate your best clips later for convenient playback, editing or sharing. Just press the button on the camera or Smart Remote2 when you capture a moment you’d like to tag. You can also tag your highlights using the GoPro App.

 

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. The result? Reduced wind noise and enhanced audio capture—no matter what the conditions or activity.

 

 

Built-in battery 

The battery is built directly into the camera and offers up to two 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.

 

 

Mount upside down, capture right-side up 

When the camera is mounted upside down, Auto Image Rotation automatically adjusts the capture orientation to right-side up so there’s no need to flip your footage in post-production.

 

 

Compatible with all GoPro mounts 

HERO4 Session is compatible with all GoPro mounts. So whether you’ve got a stash of mounts at home, or you’re looking for fresh ways to capture your favorite activities, you’ll be good to go. Wear it on your helmet or chest for a unique perspective. Mount it to bikes, boards, motorcycles and more to capture immersive footage of the experience. Wear it. Mount it. Love it.

 


Control, view and share with built-in Wi-Fi + Bluetooth® 

With built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, you can connect to the GoPro App to control the camera remotely with your phone or tablet, view the content you’ve captured and share your favorite shots on Instagram, Twitter and more. You’ll also have instant access to the GoPro Channel, so you can get your fix of the latest GoPro videos from across the globe. The Smart Remote2 makes it possible to control multiple GoPro cameras from distances of up to 182m.

I used the Hero 4 Session over the festive break and found it super easy to work with. The one-button record feature makes using the camera a breeze and helps to ensure that you get the shot you want as there's no delay from deciding to record to actually recording. I really enjoyed it and will keep mine on hand for future adventures! .
