(Updated: 27/12/19)

GoPro Hero 4 Session – Review

The new GoPro Hero 4 Session landed at Unsponsored HQ almost six months ago. After pretty regular use (more than my GoPro Hero 4 Black edition) it is now time to review. The Session is GoPro’s latest POV action camera and the first to break away from what has been a fairly standard GoPro cuboid shape.

When I purchased the Session the RRP was well over £300. We’ve had a fair bit of time with the camera so it is now time for the GoPro Hero 4 Session – Review.

Within this review I have mixed in some screenshots taken from some 1080p footage filmed with the Session 4 on a very overcast and challenging light condition kind of day.

Must have GoPro Accessories

I’ve been looking at the range of GoPro accessories I currently have to assess whether or not I would buy them again. Here is a very quick run down of the “Keepers” and the “Binned”. There has been fair bit of trial and error over the last few years but I think that I have narrowed things down to kit that works and is actually worth getting.

GoPro Hero 4 Black Edition – First Look (Part One)

A new GoPro Hero 4 Black Edition landed at Unsponsored HQ during the course of today and has just been unpacked. Other than the video upgrades there also seems to be a number of changes to unit that are not apparent when looking at the pre-release images.

In the box is the usual booklets, safety advice, skeleton backdoor, 2 x extender pieces, 1 x curved mount, 1 x flat mount, USB lead, additional QR and stickers. The notable difference between this and the GoPro 3+ is the lack of a remote fob.
