GoPro has been a household name for its action cameras, while we haven’t been seeing much new design in this hardware category, the company has announced its smallest high performance Hero 4 Session action camera, a simple cube like device that only has one button to rule everything.
The Hero 4 Session weighs a mere 74g, its 8-megapixel camera will take up to 1440p videos at 30 fps while it features an advanced ISO sensitivity of up to ISO1600 for low light action videography. The Hero 4 Session comes with a non-removable 1030mAh battery this time and GoPro rates a maximum 2 hour battery life when recording on 1080p30, which is fine however a deal breaker for those who uses action cameras for hours.
In addition, GoPro has also announced new range of accessories for all GoPro cameras:

Casey features a water-resistant, semi-rigid shell to protect against light rain and snow, while a padded interior with removable dividers protects your arsenal of camera(s) and accessories.
