GoPro slashes the cost of Hero4 Session camera to $199

In a price-cut move which comes in time for the holiday shopping season, GoPro has announced that it has reduced the cost of its small, cube-shaped Hero4 Session camera to just $199.

The Hero4 Session camera, which is capable of shooting videos in extreme conditions, was launched by GoPro in July, priced at $399. The cost of the high-end camera has already been slashed once, apparently because of its lower-than-expected sales.

The barely 2.6-ounce GoPro Hero4 Session camera is nearly the size of an ice-cube; and is thus the smallest camera launched by GoPro thus far. The rugged and waterproof camera boasts a simple, one-button design.

According to GoPro’s description, the Hero4 Session camera is the company’s “most convenient camera” which is “wearable and gear-mountable.” GoPro has also asserted that the camera is “compatible with GoPro's expansive array of more than 30 accessories including helmet, chest, board, bike, gear and pole mounts.” GoPro has also touted the camera’s “revolutionary battery efficiency,” and its “1080p60 video and 8MP photos.”

About the move to reduce the cost of the Hero4Session camera to $199, GoPro said that the decision was taken by the company on the basis of the feedback received from retailers and customers.
