GoPro is making it really, really hard not to give into temptation and buy the entry-level HERO4 Session camera.
The company recently announced that it was slashing the price of the ice-cube-sized Session camera in half, to just under US$200/185 Euros.
GoPro‘s founder and CEO Nick Woodman says:
“The waterproof HERO4 Session is so durable and easy to use; it’s the perfect way to capture rough-and-tumble family activities this holiday season. From snowball fights to snowboarding, the footage will look so immersive you’ll feel like you’re reliving the experience. “I’m stoked that for just $199, everyone can GoPro this Holiday season.”
The completely waterproof design — with a depth rating to 33 feet/10 meters — means you don’t need a separate housing, and it features a one-button control. Additionally, the new camera is compatible with existing GoPro mounts.
The HERO4 Session can capture 1080p60, 720p100 and 1440p30 video as well as 8-megapixel photos. As a regular still camera, you can take pictures in single, burst and time-lapse modes.
With the GoPro App or Smart Remote, you get even more controls and settings, including the ability to use your smartphone to view, edit and upload video to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and more.
Best of luck keeping your credit card in your wallet or purse this season. If this is the straw that winds up breaking the camel’s back, you can buy it on the GoPro website.
