Nail those photos moments
With shot-nailing features including 8MP single photos, Time Lapse photos at set intervals from 0.5 to 60 seconds, and Burst photos at 10 frames per second the HERO4 Session’s got you covered, when it comes to versatile photo capture.
GoPro App or Smart Remote
A single press of the shutter button powers on the camera and begins capturing video or Time Lapse photos automatically. A second press of the shutter button stops recording and powers off the camera. It’s that simple. You can also access most of the modes of other HERO4 cameras using the GoPro App or Smart Remote** using built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth®. From single photos to Time Lapse photos, Burst photos to Looping Video - HERO4 Session does it all. You can also use the app or remote to easily adjust settings like video resolution, frame rate, field of view and more.
Durable + waterproof
The Hero4 Session is rugged and waterproof to 10m eliminating the need for a separate housing. Its convenient, ready-to-go design makes it easy to get out the door quickly to capture and enjoy your session.
HiLight Tag your best moments
HiLight Tag enables you to mark key moments while recording so you can quickly locate your best clips later for convenient playback, editing or sharing. Just press the button on the camera or Smart Remote** when you capture a moment you’d like to tag. You can also tag your highlights using the GoPro App.
World’s most immersive video
The HERO4 Session features SuperView™, a GoPro-exclusive video mode that captures the world’s most immersive wide-angle field of view. It allows you to capture more of yourself and your surroundings in the shot - resulting in captivating, ultra engaging footage of every adventure.
Auto Low Light mode
Let the camera do the thinking for you. Auto Low Light mode intelligently changes frame rates based on lighting conditions for optimal low-light performance, enabling you to move between bright and dark environments without having to adjust your camera settings.
Dual Mic System
The HERO4 Session features two microphones: one on the front of the camera and one on the back. When you’re filming in windy conditions or during high-speed activities like motorsports, the camera automatically switches to the mic that’s best-suited for capturing optimal audio. The result? Reduced wind noise and enhanced audio capture - no matter what the conditions or activity.
The battery is built directly into the camera and offers up to two hours of recording time on a full charge*** The included USB cable allows for charging the camera with your computer or the GoPro Auto or Wall Charger**
Mount upside down, capture right-side up. 3x Mounts
When the camera is mounted upside down, Auto Image Rotation automatically adjusts the capture orientation to right-side up so there’s no need to flip your footage in post-production. It also comes with specially designed mounts and accessories that work seamlessly with other GoPro gear to give you more mounting options than ever. The Low-Profile Frame gives HERO4 Session the lowest profile of any GoPro camera, the Ball Joint Buckle gives you the freedom to change things up without having to stop and un-mount the camera, while using the Standard Frame with GoPro mounts allows you to create a wide array of ultra compact gear setups.
Protune™ for video
Protune in the Hero4 Session unlocks the camera’s full potential, delivering minimally compressed, cinema-caliber video optimized for professional productions. Furthermore, Auto Low Light mode intelligently changes frame rates based on lighting conditions for optimal low-light performance, enabling you to move between bright and dark environments without having to adjust your camera settings.
