In addition to enabling you capture stunning, lifelike videos, the camera also take breathtaking 8 megapixels still shots. Burst photos can be taken at 10 frames per second and Time Lapse shots at intervals ranging from 0.5 to 60 seconds.

The Hero4 Session offers one-button control to enable you set the ball rolling with a single press of the shutter button for automatic Time Lapse photos or video capturing, while a second press halts recording and powers off the cam. Superview and Auto Low Light contribute to improve capturing quality.
