GoPro Hero Session


The shrunken-down GoPro Session (previously the Hero4 Session) may not offer any performance gains over its big brothers, but it's still quite good and more fun to use than other action cams.

Compact, low-profile design. Simple-to-use, always-on operation. Great video quality. Improved audio. Waterproof without bulky housing.

Light but not exactly the easiest to use


We bought this two weeks ago for our holiday in Jamaica. The photos seem darker than actual although they were clear. It seems easy to use when reading the instructions but during actual usage, it doesn't respond easily to the buttons and may take a...

Not great


Had my Hero Session for 9mths now, and use it as a helmet camera. On several occassions mid journey the memory card had become full and stopped recording (even when I had cleared it), the battery life is not fantastic. You can not loop video, I have to...
