GoPro has revolutionized the action camera market in a very short span of time and it continues to churn out new products to maintain and extend its lead. Meet the Hero4 Session, it’s the smallest action camera yet from GoPro and one that brings one of the biggest changes we’ve seen yet from the company.

Despite its small size the GoPro Hero4 Session is capable of shooting video up to 1080p at 60 frames per second. It also has various modes that GoPro users will already find on their cameras such as 1440p (4:3) at 30 fps, 720p at 100 fps, 960p (4:3) and others.

The Session is also capable of taking still photos up to 8 megapixel wide angle or 5 megapixel medium and does come with burst modes for up to 10 photos per second and time lapse.

GoPro Hero4 Session is 40 percent lighter than the Hero4 Black and is housed in a waterproof body, it’s submersible in up to 33ft (10 meters) of water without requiring a case. In the waterproof body there is a non-removable battery, microSD card slot and a micro-USB port.

The smaller design has other advantages as well, it can reach into places the other GoPro cameras can not, and opens up new mount locations. Since its significantly lighter users will not feel bogged down by it when the Session is hooked up to a helmet for example.

GoPro Hero4 Session will be available for purchase starting July 12th for $399.
