The updates to the GoPro line-up so far in 2015 haven't been specification-beating flagship offerings, but with new models that are more affordable or smaller, they might still be the right cameras for you. Gizmag looks at the key specs and features of the new Hero4 Session and Hero+ LCD cameras to see how they compare to the Hero4 Black and Silver from last year.
Smartphone cameras are increasingly taking the place of stand-alone
consumer video cameras, and in a lot of ways that makes sense. A phone,
however, isn't nearly as easy to hold onto while shooting – its screen
can also be difficult to see in bright sunlight. Well, that's where the
Lumenati CS1 comes in. It's a videography case for the iPhone 6, and it
has the same form factor as a classic Super 8mm movie camera.
GoPro's Hero actioncams may already be pretty small, but when compared to things like the Polaroid Cube
... well, they almost look big. Soon, however, consumers will be able
to buy the diminutive Hero4 Session, which is 50 percent smaller and 40
percent lighter than the existing Hero4 Black and Silver models.
GoPro has updated its entry-level line of Hero action cameras with the Hero+ LCD, a new more budget-friendly touchscreen-toting offering. As with the previous GoPro Hero camera, the Hero+ LCD is built directly into its waterproof housing, but this time offers a rear LCD touchscreen, video recording up to 1080p 60 fps, and built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
