Product Details

Smallest, lightest GoPro yet.
50% smaller and 40% lighter than other HERO4 cameras,1 HERO4 Session is the most wearable and mountable GoPro ever. With a sleek, versatile design, it’s at home anywhere—from the surf to the snow to hanging with friends.

Easy one-button control.

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.

Ultimate mounting flexibility.
HERO4 Session comes with specially designed mounts and accessories that work seamlessly with other GoPro gear to give you more mounting options than ever.

Durable + waterproof.
HERO4 Session is a rugged and waterproof camera that you can take down to 33’ (10m) without a separate housing. Its convenient, ready-to-go design makes it easy to get out the door quickly to capture and enjoy your session.
