New GoPro Hero4 Session is as Cool and Small as an Ice Cube

The new GoPro Hero4 Session is small enough to be placed into a cocktail shaker and used to record the making of a martini.

It’s 50% smaller than the old silver encasing which has marked all the previous editions, and also 40% lighter. And instead of the durable, but pedestrian plastic GoPro has always used, the Hero4 Session comes in all black with a rugged waterproof rubber coating.

Smaller than ever

As always it is incredibly easy to use, with only one red button on the top of the camera. It captures up to 60 frames per second at 1080p, and can go up to 100 frames per second at 720p.

You push the red button to turn on the camera and start recording, and hold it down to capture stills at 8 megapixels.

Conveniently for GoPro, a new size means you now have to buy new gear…

While it doesn’t have the ability to record in 4K like the most recent GoPro models, the Hero4 Session doesn’t require a waterproof case and is also easier to mount in different places due to its more compact size.

It seems more specifically geared towards the extreme sports that everyone thinks they’ll take up when they buy their GoPros, before eventually resorting to videos like this.

The Hero4 Session will hit the market at $399.99 USD
