The Hero Session is GoPro’s smallest action camera ever and has been designed to be as unobtrusive as possible, whether strapped to the front of a ski or attached to the end of a guitar.

GoPro Hero4 Session reviews

The GoPro Hero4 Session addresses the main design sticking points with previous GoPro cameras: It's smaller, lighter and waterproof without a housing; the new shape allows for more flexible mounting; it's fast to start/stop recording; and its new mic design delivers better wind-noise reduction.

The built-in battery means no swapping out for a fresh pack to keep shooting. It needs to be wirelessly connected to Android/iOS device or GoPro remote (not included) to change settings.
