The GoPro HERO Session packs the power of GoPro into the smallest, lightest, most convenient GoPro yet. Featuring a rugged and waterproof design, easy one-button control, revolutionary battery efficiency, 1080p60 video and 8MP photos, the Session delivers huge performance in a small package.


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
    • Low-Profile Frame: The Low-Profile Frame gives HERO4 Session the lowest profile of any GoPro camera.
    • Standard Frame: Use the Standard Frame with GoPro mounts to create a wide array of ultra compact gear setups.
    • Ball Joint Buckle: The Ball Joint Buckle gives you the freedom to change things up without having to stop and un-mount the camera.
  • Mount upside down, capture right-side up: 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.
  • Compatible with all GoPro mounts: HERO4 Session is compatible with all GoPro mounts. So whether you’ve got a stash of mounts at home, or you’re looking for fresh ways to capture your favorite activities, you’ll be good to go. Wear it on your helmet or chest for a unique perspective. Mount it to bikes, boards, motorcycles and more to capture immersive footage of the experience. There’s also a kit that lets you easily replace the lens cover. Wear it. Mount it. Love it.
  • Revolutionary battery efficiency: HERO4 Session maximizes battery life by only using power when the camera is recording(4). It automatically powers off when not recording. This means you can capture a full day of photos and video clips or record up to 2 hours continuously on a full charge(5). The built-in battery can be charged using the included USB cable with your computer or the GoPro Auto or Wall Charger(3).
  • Professional video quality: HERO4 Session delivers stunning video quality. Capture high-resolution 1440p30 and 1080p60 video that’s sharp and lifelike. High frame rate 720p100 video enables exceptionally smooth slow-motion playback of your best moments.
  • Powerful photo capture: Nail the shot with a variety of photo modes. Capture 8MP single photos, Time Lapse photos at set intervals from 0.5 to 60 seconds, and Burst photos at 10 frames per second. When it comes to versatile photo capture, HERO4 Session’s got you covered.
  • Dual mic system: 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.
  • World’s most immersive video: 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: 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.
  • Easily adjust modes + settings: HERO4 Session captures 1080p30 Ultra Wide video and 8MP Time Lapse photos at 0.5 second intervals right out of the box. Easily adjust these settings on the camera(2) or change all modes and settings with the GoPro App for mobile or Smart Remote.3 Use the app or remote to easily switch between Time Lapse, Burst and single photos, video resolutions, frame rates, fields of view and more.
  • 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(3) when you capture a moment you’d like to tag. You can also tag your highlights using the GoPro App.
  • Protune™ for video: Protune unlocks the camera’s full potential, delivering minimally compressed, cinema-caliber video optimized for professional productions.
  • Control, view and share with built-in Wi-Fi + Bluetooth®: With built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, you can connect to the GoPro App to control the camera remotely with your phone or tablet, view the content you’ve captured and share your favorite shots on Instagram, Twitter and more. You’ll also have instant access to the GoPro Channel, so you can get your fix of the latest GoPro videos from across the globe. The Smart Remote(3) makes it possible to control multiple GoPro cameras from distances of up to 600’ (182m).
  • Offload. Edit. Enjoy: The GoPro App for desktop is the easiest way to offload and enjoy your GoPro photos and video, make quick edits and share your favorite shots.

Wonderful video footage from this camera. Even mounted on my 4x4 SCT the footage is extremely clear! Was concerned the added weight would be noticeable when driving but could not tell it was there. Great product at a great low price.)
