GoPro has been making waves as of late with its recent announcement of 360 degree VR array cameras and even an interesting quadrocopter drone camera. Things are looking tight for this action oriented camera company and CEO Nick Woodman looks to bring them to even greater heights through innovation and adrenaline.
Here comes GoPro’s latest product, the Hero 4 Session. Unlike the company’s recent HERO4 Black which featured dense, advanced, and pro-level features which turned off interested buyers the Hero 4 Session seems to be GoPro’s most user-friendly camera yet.
Using the Session is as simple as pressing the start button then when you are done just press the same button again. You can even press and hold the start button to start a time-lapse mode. It’s that simple. No need to bother with apertures and shutter speeds as it auto detects that on the go for you. The only other button on the camera is for switching the Wi-Fi on or off to make it easier for you to upload your footage on the Internet. It can shoot up 1440p video at 30 frames per second easy too. If you choose lower quality you can get better frames per second naturally.
If you want to edit the finer settings you can do so by using the GoPro app or the Smart Remote.
Apart from being the most user-friendly camera on the GoPro line, the Session is also the smallest and most compact. It’s 50% smaller and 40% lighter than the GoPro Hero 4 Black. It only measures less than 1.5 inch on each side and weighs only 74 grams. With a camera that compact what’s stopping you from bringing it with you on your next big adventure?
The GoPro Hero 4 Session is available now for $399.
