In a galaxy not too far away - actually, in ours the GoPro Hero camera became available on April 13, 2005. It had dimensions of 64 by 76mm and weighed 200g. It included the camera, a clear case with quick release, a camera strap, and ski glove adapter lash. It could go about 5m underwater. It was described as a "reusable wrist camera" and included a roll of 24 exposure Kodak 400 film.

With the release of the Hero 4 models in 2014 everyone in the tech world wondered where GoPro could possibly go next with the release of the upgraded versions because the force was already strong with this one. But what they did next blew everyone away, with the release of the new model, the Hero 4 Session (The force awakens).

In July 2015, GoPro used the force and launched their newest model, the Hero4 Session. This is the latest action camera from the industry leaders. This is GoPro’s first waterproof camera (no casing needed) and is also their smallest ever action camera measuring 38mm, and weighs only 74g. The camera films in HD, producing 1080p 60fps footage, and is also able to take 8MP still photos, which is better than the current entry level GoPro Hero. Battery life ranges between 1h30 and 2h, depending on film quality and wifi use, with recharge time estimated to be around 90 minutes. The Session is operated with 2 buttons, and also includes a small display unit which shows battery life, camera mode and memory availability.

The new smaller design is the first major change in shape and design that GoPro have released since they launched their first edition of the Hero in 2005. Although the GoPro Hero was the ‘Father’ of GoPro action cameras, it only lead to a smaller but more powerful Jedi son, the GoPro Hero 4 Session.
