Do you have a GoPro Session? The form factor is really cool but the reviews are only so-so. I'm hoping they come up with a better version.

I DID but ended up trading it to a friend. It just wasnt right for me and all my gear is Hero 4 stuff. Vid quality is great. Battery life is garbage. The big thing is that it has to be paired to the app or smart remote to change the settings. IMO - It's more of a true action cam to be strapped to a car, helmet or glove. While the Hero series are more versatile.

But for this price, it's not a bad deal.

I'm all for simplicity with action cameras, and this one came on the market because in my opinion 99% of the users don't use all the functions of the gopro hero black ($500). i don't. The session (list price $299) records at 1440p, I don't need that. That's why I'm looking into the hero+ (list price $199), no LCD, permanently encased in a waterproof container, for around $165, 1080p 60fps and looping video comes in handy.

The link goes somewhere else. What's the big deal? Sessions lists for $299.99 http://shop.gopro.com/compare?category=cameras

Update. The session is reduced to around $200. It is nicely packaged, but because it only has two buttons to set all the controls and video/photo modes, it requires an app to your mobile device with wifi to make changes. Since the session came out, there is a Yi video/photo camera for less than $100 ($70 eBay) from China that tops the session, but there are inherent differences. It is almost a copy of the heros in size and shape but it is ugly in white or green. It is only made for the Chinese market, but you can buy it in eBay or Amazon. Some vendors will provide the Chinglish manual. Both are small and simple to use once you get it set up, but I don't like requiring a mobile device to make changes. I think I will stick to my heavy and larger DLSR for my needs next trip to EU in August.
