Have you ever found yourself thinking that your ultra compact GoPro was just too darn big still? Ever wanted to mount it where the sun don’t shine but couldn’t quite make it fit? Good news! GoPro have just announced their latest model: the GoPro HERO4 Session, their lightest and tiniest camera to date.
Not only does it look spookily like HAL9000, its very own slogan is “So small. So stoked.” – something you’d normally dread hearing.
It basically looks to be just the lens and sensor from the last GoPro stripped bare and given a variety of frames to make it slimmer and/or more durable, depending on the situation it’s being used for.
But feature wise, compared to the HERO4 Silver at least it hasn’t had that much taken away from it: it can record 1080p video at 60fps, but if it’s super slo-mo you want it can do 100fps at 720p. It also features ProTunes and SuperView – two features we loved from the last set – but most interestingly it has two mics, one on the front and one on the back, that automatically switch between themselves depending on wind levels. It would be great to see if this could actually reduce the annoying pseudo sound that comes build in to any decent riding footage.
It come ready to be used with any existing GoPro mounts you already have set up, and it will be selling on GoPro’s site from the 12th July for $399 (UK price not yet announced). Sold?
