What do you think of this camera? The release of Hero 4 Session lets our eyes bright. The dimension is downsized a half, and weight is also 40% lighter, which is more compact and portable. However, except that it doesn’t support shooting for 4K@30fps, we also worry about the using time of its battery. In addition, we can see from the test video shot by Wired Magazine that its image quality is worse than Hero 4 Silver, including contrast, color tolerance and other details. So there comes a question, will you buy it?
