GoPro’s small cube sees an update at Photokina 2016 with 4K video and improved design.

GoPro’s Hero Session showed that Gopro could still innovate and when the Session arrived it caused a bit of a stir. For the most part it took a while for people to really get what it was about, and although the design and simplicity proved that the cube was a great device and superb compact action camera the initial price was eye watering.

The latest Session reflects the design of the Hero 5 and even packs in features such as voice control. The small body defies it’s ability as it features 4K video and 10 million pixel stills with burst and time-lapse modes.

The original Session was all about simplicity of use and again the Hero 5 Session continues this with it’s one button approach. As with the Session all other features and adjustments can be quickly accessed through the GoPro app and the new GoPro+ service.

The Hero5 Session as with the new Hero5 Black doesn’t feature a waterproof housing, but is still waterproof to 10m as well as being able to withstand a good knock or two.

The Her0 5 Session price tag £249. Here is a quick rundown of the GoPro Hero5 Session:
