Great for the price!

I have a Hero 4 Black and wanted a second GoPro. After looking at all the entry level GoPros at this price and looking at many videos online I went with the Session 4. I wanted something a bit smaller then the Hero 4, and while the other GoPros' at the $180 mark were rated a bit higher than the Session 4 they did not have a smaller footprint. The Session 4 takes good video/photo/time-lapse. The lack of 4k is not noticeable nor does it handcuff the Session 4 enough to not buy it. The only Action camera i think that will beat it will be Nikons Key Mission 360 once it is released, but i think the Session will still win on price.

Ok - could be better

Great quality of picture but the fact that you can't adjust the volume or turn volume off so it doesn't beep makes me just wish I ponied up. I have the Hero 2 & Hero 3 and needed a third for angled shots. The volume is loud, annoying, and can't be used when hunting for sure. Seems like an easy programmable solution... Just wish they would have thought of that.

Great Camera, Great Price
Posted by: bdallas from: on
I got this camera to go snorkeling in the Virgin Islands. I had read reviews saying that the Session's image quality wasn't as good as the Silver or Black. I don't have either one of those, but I will say that the image quality of the footage I shot was excellent. The session is small, light, doesn't need the clear case to be water proof like the more expensive models.
This is a great entry level action camera.

Great little camera
Posted by: 3Athlete from: on
I did the research before buying the session, you should too....
I needed something small I could take to the beach for vacation and use as a biking / run camera. This sucker fit the bill. Couple notes... No you don't have an LCD viewing screen of the image your taking, I didn't find that a problem. All the video I took I edited with the free GoPro software anyway. Get the float if your around water this camera WILL SINK! I only used the free GoPro Iphone app to do the camera setup, didn't use it much while capturing video, I see getting the remote in my near future. You will need to get the mounts that will serve you best when using this camera (i.e. stick mount for selfies) This is a fun camera to use!! worked great underwater too...

Extremeley good price-benefit ratio
Posted by: HecLo from: on
The camera works wonders. At first not having a full set of instructions proved tricky, but once we figured it out, it is as simple as it can get. Having the APP or the remote is a huge plus to explode this camera´s options.

Great little cam, especially for the price
Posted by: Chris from: on
This was my first action camera. Have thought about buying one for years for use on the motorcycle and bicycle. The low price of the Session finally convinced me to buy one for a road trip to Colorado. It captured some amazing quality video while strapped to the hood of the car driving through the mountains. The only issue is that this compact design doesn't allow for battery swaps. It will get a couple hours of video before needing to be recharged via USB, and that can take a while. So if you really want to capture a lot of video without breaks, you will be better served by a higher end model. Still, for someone new to action cams, the Session is an awesome, affordable introduction to the world of camera accessories.

Such a fun camera
Posted by: Cooper25 from: Phoenix, AZ on
After reading reviews for GoPro Session and Silver, I decided that I would go with the Session because it's $200 cheaper and I really don't need the LCD screen to record.
This is such a cool little camera. It's really small but it takes a great video. I bought primarily to use with my kids in the pool this summer. I have some great videos of my kids swimming and some really cool underwater videos. These are memories my parents could have never got when I was young. I'm glad that I'll be able to show my kids when they're older. I am also going to take it to Disneyland next month to record them on the rides. I'm very happy with this investment.

If you are a current gopro user, this is a good camera to either replace an older model, or use in conjunction with an existing gopro collection.
Man things this can do that other gopros can't
1. gopro session can be pulled out of housing and placed into another housing with ease. You can have multiple housings set up on different equipment or positions, and simply slide the session in and out.
2. one button, on and record function... not sure if this is available on newer gopros, but it was not available on the hero 3 and below.
3. memory card can be accessed while still in the housing. i keep my gopro mounted, pop the card out, plug the card into my phone and review my videos on the go.
here is a link to a youtube video i made entirely with the hero sessions, and the gopro editing software (free)
there are alot of features that the hero4 has, that the session does not have... but i feel like the main features i utilize the most for action/home videos are covered here with the session.
The pictures below have degraded quality, because they were screen grabs of the youtube video I made.

Excellent grab-and-go camera

The biggest benefit of this camera is not needing anything else to use it wherever you want -- it's already waterproof. The one-button record makes it really easy to take videos in the water without having to review them on the go. (Beep feedback tells you whether it's starting or stopping recording.) All GoPro accessories work with this camera, so there's no need for another GoPro unless you want maximum resolution or frame rates.
