With a price of $ 200, its video quality is lower than that of the black edition GoPro Hero 4, but comparable with the low-end cameras of the line. Shoot at 1080p at 60 frames per second, or 1440p at 30 fps. Slow-motion fans will want to look the other way, since the best they can do is 120 fps at only 480p.
The battery life is acceptable for the camera of this size in approximately 90 minutes of recording time. I was impressed with that. But the battery is not replaceable so the entire camera must be charged before it can be used again.
There are two things that bother me about the Session: the first is the lack of image stabilization. It will give the spectators a bumpy ride if a gimble is not used.
The second problem is that it lacks a tripod mount that adds a cost to the entry point since additional accessories must be purchased to obtain one.
But otherwise I like it for its rugged design and its small format.
