Ultimate features found in previous GoPro offerings such as SuperView, Protune and Auto Low Light recording modes are still present in the Hero4 Session.
The Session features a sleek frame mounting system that’s compatible with all existing GoPro mounts and will also ship with a dual microphone system to capture enhanced audio in less than adequate conditions, such as high wind or when partaking in water-based activities.
Connectivity to the native GoPro app and Smart Remote will still be handled by the built-in Bluetooth and WiFi sensors.

Although the Hero4 Session looks great. For starters, it has no 4K video recording, and the battery is non-removable with up to 2 hours of battery life. No way you will get a viewfinder either, and you can only change the camera’s settings from the iOS or Android companion app. So you need to carry with you a phone all times to tinker around with the settings.
Sample images from the GoPro Hero4 Session and the complete set of technical specifications are as follows.
Essentially, the Hero4 Session may be the latest in the development of GoPro’s camera initiative, and of course its smaller and lighter, but it should still offer the same exceptional experience that GoPro has became identical with.
