Action camera clones are propping up everywhere and that is one of the reasons GoPro as a stock investment has under performing. The plethora of options keeps getting more diverse and at even lower entry prices.
The Firefly 6S and Veho K-Series K-2 Pro and K-1 are such products that aim to do it all for the action camera enthusiast while competing at a lower entry price. This doesn’t necessarily mean cutting corners do to lower prices and these two brands seem to fit the bill in one way or another to fill the shoes of a GoPro Action camera competitor.
It seems that GoPro is not quite done with camera updates this year. They just released a very small variant of the Hero 4 hardware called the GoPro Hero 4 Session. Some jokes have already come out about the name like the next Re-Session Camera to own. However this is more of an evolutionary and reductionist product than any release GoPro has ever made before.
The Hero 4 Black is a powerhouse little camera with great frame rates for slow motion and 4k video at 30p. Some have criticized the codec in 4k mode as being too lossy and we agree to a point. What interest us however is not the 4k mode for now which is absent from the GoPro Hero 4 Session altogether but the lower res Full HD and HD slow motion high frame rate modes.
