The name "GoPro" is synonymous with small, lightweight action cameras. These cameras have challenged our imaginations and there's definitely no shortage of awesome GoPro videos to watch. From highlight reels to hilarious animal high jinks, and even footage from space, there's almost no end to the amazing things GoPros can capture.

That's especially true now that GoPro has announced its first new camera in almost a decade. The Hero4 Session is smaller and lighter than the current cameras in the Hero4 product line. The new cube camera is only 1.4 cubic inches and weighs 2.3 ounces. It is also waterproof up to 33 feet without other waterproof casings.

The battery lasts up to two hours and shoots up to 1440p resolution at 30 frames per second. There's a burst photo mode, and the Session can also take time-lapse photos, high-resolution photos and record in slow motion.

The major different with the Session versus other GoPro models is its one button that starts and stops recording, making it easier to use on the go. Users can use the GoPro app for more operating options, or they can use the Wi-Fi remote that is standard with other GoPro models.

The Hero4 Session's cube shape also allows for it to be mounted to different surfaces, such as bicycle spokes, which can't hold current heavier GoPro models. One pro mountain biker also told Fast Company that he knew a kayaker that could fit the camera inside a fish's mouth. The possibilities for awesome GoPro videos now might truly be endless!
