GoPro on Monday announced the Hero4 Session. Check it out!!

GoPro Whittles Down Hero4 Action Cam

GoPro on Monday announced the Hero4 Session, a 1-inch cube video camera that weighs just 2.6 ounces -- less than half the heft of an iPhone.
Unlike previous GoPro models, you won't need a case to protect it from getting wet. It's designed to withstand a soaking in up to 10 meters of water.

However, while the camera is light in weight, it's also light on features -- and if you decide to buy it, it'll lighten your wallet.
At US$400, "I think the price is fairly steep," said Chris Chute, a digital imaging analyst with IDC.
"I'm surprised ... at that price point. I would have thought it would have been priced slightly lower, although GoPro can sustain a higher price point because its brand equity is so strong," he told TechNewsWorld.
"It's essentially the same price as a GoPro Silver, which has better specs," noted Ross Rubin, principal analyst at Reticle Research.

Easier to Use

Some features absent from Session are 4K recording, a replaceable or swappable battery, and higher frame-recording rates.

Absence of 4K recording isn't likely to blunt sales of the new GoPro too badly, according to IDC's Chute.
"4K is slowly becoming relevant to consumers, but it's still very niche," he said, "so I don't think this is going to hurt this model."
Frame rates for the new unit are 30 fps for 1440p, and 60 fps for 1080p. Other Hero models have faster frame rates that let a shooter capture super-slow motion video at the camera's maximum resolution. The unit can capture 8-MP still images in single shot, burst or time-lapse mode.
Session is easier to use than other Hero models. For instance, it has single buttons for powering on/start recording and for power off/stop recording. The unit automatically rotates images to accommodate the orientation of the camera.
It has a dual microphone system, so if the front mic senses too much wind, for instance, the Session will switch to a rear-facing mic that's shielded from the wind. Underwater sound recording also has been improved.

Most Convenient GoPro Yet

A small LCD screen on top of the unit displays a minimum of information -- mode, battery life and connection status -- so settings need to be managed from GoPro's smartphone app.
Included with Session are GoPro's standard and low-profile frame mounts for increased mounting versatility, and a new ball joint buckle mount.
"With Hero4 Session, we challenged ourselves to produce the smallest, lightest, most convenient GoPro possible," said Nicholas Woodman, GoPro founder and CEO. "Hero4 Session combines the best of our engineering and user-experience know-how to deliver our most convenient life-capture solution, yet."

If you want to get the most bang for your buck this Fourth of July, check out our guide to the top deals.

The Best July 4 Sales of 2015

The fireworks are set to launch. The national anthem is ready to be sung. The country is looking forward to celebrating Independence Day, but there’s one thing left to do: Shop the holiday sales.
If you want to get the most bang for your buck this Fourth of July, check out our guide to the top deals. We’ll tell you where you will and won’t find the best bargains, plus give you a handful of sales to get you started.
Deals That Sparkle
For the best buys in this week leading up to July 4, look for sales on products for the home and backyard.
  • Furniture. July is the best month to purchase indoor and outdoor furniture. Accordingly, you’ll find big price reductions on items such as living room pieces and patio sets.
  • Summer essentials. Sure, prices on summery items are lowest after the summer season is over, but if you need summer clothes for the remaining warm months, now’s the time to buy. If you wisely avoided purchasing these products when they first hit stores earlier this year, you’ll be rewarded now with an opportunity to snag them at better prices, since these items have been out for a while.
  • Sleepwear. Finally, June is known as an ideal time to buy lingerie at a great price. As June wraps up and July arrives, make your final sleepwear purchases before this sale opportunity window closes.
Deals That Fizzle
Not every sale will be a showstopper. Try to avoid products that reach their lowest prices at different points of the year. 
  • Tech items. You likely won’t find spectacular savings on tech products this July 4. Home gadgets such as TVs and other electronics tend to see their best sales near the end of the calendar year. Try to put off these purchases until then if you can.
  • Office supplies. When summer is at its peak, back-to-school season is just around the corner. But hold off on scooping up those office supplies – at least for now. The price tags on popular academic essentials will drop even lower once August rolls around.
  • Lawn mowers. One more product to avoid during deals for the Fourth? Lawn mowers. You’ll generally find better prices on lawn care products in August and September.
  • Sales That Soar

    Now that you know which prices will pop and which deals will be duds, it’s time to hit the stores (or Web, if you prefer cyber shopping).
    Many major retailers are showing their patriotism with red, white and blue-inspired price cuts this Independence Day. Here are some of the top sales you can shop leading up to the holiday.
    • Macy's. The department store is hosting a July 4 furniture and mattress sale with what it’s touting as the “lowest prices of the season” on indoor furniture, outdoor furniture and mattresses. 
    • Home Depot. The home improvement store’s red, white and blue savings event will have shoppers seeing green with up to 30 percent price cuts on major appliances. Sale prices are valid through July 15 and apply to a selection of refrigerators, washers, dryers and more. 
    • Best Buy. This retailer is also having an appliance sale. Its 4th of July sale – which runs through July 15 – boasts savings of up to 40 percent on major appliances, including refrigerators, ranges and dishwashers. 
    • Lowe's. Through July 1, the store is lowering prices on appliances, outdoor furniture and other inventory. Additionally, shoppers who buy a Char-Broil full-size gas grill for $329 or more will receive a $100 Lowe’s gift card via mail-in rebate, while supplies last. 
    • Michaels. Fourth of July deals aren’t only for major purchases. At Michaels, holiday revelers can stock up on party goods  – including napkins, decorations and balloons – for 20 percent off. Visit theMichaels website to browse the full July 4 sale selection.
    • Amazon. Online marketplace Amazon is celebrating the Fourth with limited-time price cuts on movies, books, music and more. Visit the website’s Fourth of July section, and check each specific sale item for the deal’s ending date and time.
    • Finally, if it’s travel you’re hoping to score this Independence Day, head over to, where customers who book by July 4 for travel through July 18 can grab savings of up to 50 percent off. Visit for full details.

Study Shows Best Times to Post

Hungry for Retweets and Facebook Likes? 

Whether you're posting on social media personally or professionally, sometimes you really do want to maximize the reaction. New research has some straightforward advice for you.
A study by social media metric company Klout found that Tuesdays and Wednesdays are the best days to post things if you want the maximum amount of likes, comments and retweets — late Tuesday and Wednesday morning, to be precise.
The researchers analyzed the reactions to 144 million posts on Facebook and Twitter, and found that there was a reliable improvement in engagement as the morning wore on — and just before lunchtime, posts were three or four times more likely to find an audience. This boost quickly disappears in the afternoon, though.
And what's the worst time to post? The weekend, surprisingly. Perhaps users are inundated with pictures of Friday night, or sleep in past the late-morning social media prime time.
