DUBAI, UAE, July 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Al Boom Marine, the official distributors of GoPro in the Middle East, officially announce the arrival of the HERO4 Session and the HERO+LCD. The HERO4 Session is the smallest, lightest, most convenient GoPro yet. 50% smaller and 40% lighter than GoPro's best-selling HERO4 Black and Silver cameras, HERO4 Session packs GoPro's Emmy® Award-winning image quality and performance into an exciting new low-profile form factor. Like the entry-level HERO, the HERO+ LCD is built directly into its waterproof housing. The HERO4 Session will retail for AED 1,599 MSRP and the HERO+LCD will retail for AED 1,199 MSRP at authorized GoPro retailers across the Middle East.

"We are incredibly excited about the launch of the HERO4 Session and the HERO+LCD in the Middle East. With enhanced user experience features and meticulous design, GoPro has listened to the market and delivered a perfect solution," said Mark Kotze, Head of Tech for Al Boom Marine. "We are looking forward to seeing them in use across the region."

HERO4 Session captures GoPro-quality 1080p60, 720p100 and 1440p30 video along with eight megapixel photos in Single, Burst and Time Lapse modes. It features many of the same innovative features found in GoPro's best-selling HERO4 Black and Silver cameras, including SuperView™, Protune and Auto Low Light recording modes. An expanded set of controls and settings can be accessed when using the GoPro App or Smart Remote.

Operating HERO4 Session is very simple. A short press of the shutter button quickly powers the camera on and video recording begins automatically. A long press of the shutter button powers the camera on and triggers Time Lapse photo capture. Press the shutter button again to save video or photo content and power the camera off. This simple one button design drastically improves the speed and convenience of capturing life moments as they happen.

HERO4 Session is built to GoPro's famous rugged standards and is waterproof to 33 feet (10 meters) without the need for a separate waterproof housing. It features a sleek frame mounting system that is compatible with GoPro's expansive array of mounts.  An innovative dual microphone system dynamically switches sound recording between microphones to reduce wind noise during activities. Audio performance during water-based activities has been dramatically improved thanks to HERO4 Session's waterproof design that eliminates the need for a separate waterhousing, which can often muffle sounds.

HERO+LCD is described as all-in-one awesome + touch-display convenience. Capturing life-like high definition 1080p60 video and 8MP photos, the HERO+LCD features a convenient touch display for easy shot framing, settings control and access to an all-new in-camera video trimming feature.

Rugged and waterproof to 131' (40m), HERO+ LCD also includes advanced features like HiLight Tagging and in-camera video trimming to make it easier to identify and share your favorite moments. Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® connect the HERO+LCD to your GoPro App-enabled smartphone or tablet for easy camera control and shot preview when your camera is mounted or out of reach.
