GoPro Hero Review

Everyone has a video camera device these days, but which one is really the best?  I personally prefer the GoPro Hero brand of Cameras.  They are so versatile and in combination with the many various attachment accessories available, you can get killer videos in any extreme situation or adventure scenario.

This past Christmas, I received one of my all time favorite gifts from my husband. It was a GoPro Hero camera.  I had been wanting one for so long, but never pulled the trigger and bought one.  Well, my sweet husband recognized my overwhelming desire to own this awesome camera and he surprised me on Christmas morning!

I immediately put it to use on my wedding anniversary.  We rented a small cabin on the Guadalupe River and I had a chance to film my fly fishing sessions with my new GoPro.  The picture quality is incredible and the wide angle allows you to get great footage all while enjoying what you are doing.  In other words, once you hit record, the GoPro does all the work… you just have to give it a subject worth filming.

One thing I absolutely love about my GoPro is that I can control it from my phone.  I downloaded the GoPro app and it connects wirelessly to the camera.  I can hit record on my phone or view previous footage that I’ve shot.  It really is useful and a great feature to have.

GoPro HERO4 Session Review

GoPro HERO4 SessionGoPro Hero4 Session

Extreme Helmet Camera

GoPro has just come out with one of the most rugged, waterproof designs to date. The HERO4 Session is super lightweight and extremely small. As common with other GoPro models, this camera offers stunning video quality and provides users with a great tool to capture the extreme adventures they decide to tackle.

Features at a Glance:

  • Small and Convenient
  • Easy one button control
  • Mounting flexibility and control

Pros:

    • Easy to use
    • Durable and waterproof to 33ft
    • 35% smaller and 40% lighter

Cons:

The GoPro HERO4 Session only comes in one color… black. This is a minor con however because black seems to be a pretty good option as far as colors go.

It also does not have a monitor built in like some of the other models.
Note: You can sync it to your smart phone in order to see what you are filming (in real time).

My Opinion:

The small size of the HERO4 Session is absolutely awesome. It fits well on helmets and doesn’t add extra weight which is really great. The audio is also the best out there. The microphone sheds water so the audio quality remains intact.

The fact that this model is completely waterproof really appealed to me. The camera doesn’t need a separate housing in order for it to go underwater. I have another model that I also love, but it requires the extra waterproof case.

Mounting this GoPro model is a breeze and it offers a lot of versatility in that regard. So whether you are mounting to a flat surface or a slightly curved one, you are good to go.
