Popular actions sports camera manufacturer GoPro has launched the smallest and lightest camera that the firm has ever made,The GoPro Hero4 Session. The camera has been launched at a price of $400 (approx. ₹25,000) and despite it’s size, the camera comes with quite a lot of features with very less compromises.
The camera has been designed in a way to work with previous generation mounts and accessories so people already owning a GoPro don’t have to shell out money on accessories for the Hero4 session. It houses a 8MP camera with an ultra wide angle field of view lens. The camera can take up to 10 images per second in burst mode. It can record videos at up to 1440p at 30fps,1080p at 60fps and 720p at a whopping 100fps and even supports time lapse mode. The camera has a waterproof body and wouldn’t be an issue for underwater filming at decent depths. For storage, the camera supports micro SD cards up to 64 GB provided, they’re Class 10 or higher. The battery on the Hero4 Session has a capacity of 1030mah which allows up to 2 hours of recording on a single charge, however longer recording times can be achieved by using external power source via micro USB port. The camera can be controlled by either a remote or a compatible smartphone app by WiFi.
