The latest camera from GoPro is quite petite and shaped like that of a tiny cube. Ultimately, iFixit took a peak in its belly in order to better figure out the GoPro Hero 4 Session. Inside, they found tiny circuit boards featured in a very tiny assembly.
All of it is present in a completely sealed transparent cube which iFixit had to tear apart using a box knife and a saw. In case you wanted to replace the battery or repair a broken unit, this could literally mean bad news for the customer. However, this is a great way to ensure that the complete unit stays waterproof.
The various lens elements of the GoPro Hero 4 Session are carefully arranged so that you can produce awesome wide-angle videos. Latest reports suggest that this new tiny camera from GoPro is 50 percent smaller and 40 percent lighter than previous GoPro Hero 4 models.
The device will be able to capture 1080p at 60fps, 720p at 100fps and 1440p at 30 fps along with a $399 price tag. The device is waterproof upto 33 feet and is definitely equipped to endure tough conditions.
It has the presence of dual mics which ensure a better audio quality. The unit makes use of a single button control which results in different modes when you press or hold them. At this price, some might feel that it is a bit overpriced but people who don’t prefer bigger models will definitely love it.
Meanwhile, there is bad news for the people who were waiting for the GoPro Hero 5. The company presently decided to push back its release dates so that they can make certain improvements in it. GoPro devices have always been popular among the many extreme sports enthusiasts and adventure junkies alike.
They are extremely durable, tough and small and certainly ideal for outdoor adrenaline-filled adventures. There are people who really love high-definition aspects in a camera, even if it’s meant for adventures. As a result, people will love the new full ultra-HD feature in this camera which makes it capable of recording 8K videos, with a pixel resolution of 3840×2160 pixels at 60 frames per second. This is quite a major improvement from the other devices that record at 30 frames per second.
The latest reports also suggest that the upcoming GoPro Hero 5 will come with 3D video recording with dual-lens. With such added and improved features, rumors indicate that this device will come with a larger and a much improved battery. It will have a 2800mAh battery which will allow 2 hours of video recording when fully charged.
It will come with Bluetooth which further ensures that the upload speeds will be much faster than previous generation cameras. Earlier, some people were quite pissed off when GoPro Hero 4 came with different colored variants with different features (black and silver models).
The latest reports suggest that the company will introduce all the best features in all of the variants. In terms of pricing, the silver model comes at $400 and the black model at $500. At the same time, GoPro Hero 5 will come with various improvements which will make it a little costlier than the previous generation devices. You should expect a price tag from $450-$550. This device will launch in late 2015 or early 2016.
Meanwhile, any rumors involving a GoPro Hero 5 release date is quite vague. According to a report from Latino Post, the device will release late this year or early next year. The company has earned a reputation of staying popular and loved with its entire range of tough, durable action-sports cameras, which are ideal for adventures and outdoor situations.
