If you know me, you know I’m a fan of GoPro. I’ve been using GoPro footage in my videos since I started my YouTube channel a few years ago. Since then I’ve brought both the HERO2 and HERO4 Silver on many adventures around the world. Now it’s time to add a new member to the camera family…
In the above video, I get a special delivery from GoPro that I had no idea I was receiving. It turns out to be the newest, tinniest and lightest GoPro yet called the HERO4 Session. Not only do I unbox the HERO4 Session with you, but I also test it out with the help of my favourite furry friend. So, be sure to watch the video until the very end to see my ferret Bagheera in action using the GoPro HERO4 Session!
