Robust GoPro Hero4 Session ripped apart to reveal compact hardware
GoPro wanted to go compact with its next version of an action camera and therefore came up with Hero4 Session cam that is capable of 4K recording capabilities. Add to that a waterproof external layer and you have a camera that can capture action in the most watery places too. But that casing itself makes it very hard to rip apart and see the internal hardware. So, who else do we expect to rip the GoPro Session Camera apart, than iFixit.
Waterproof action camera with 4K recording capabilities is quite hard to open-up
The innards of this action camera house miniature components that are far beyond repair if you do happen to damage them. The only hope you have is that your camera will go through chalk and cheese, no matter what. Under the outer shell of GoPro Hero4 Session is a transparent waterproof layer which is quite rigid and requires special skill to take apart.
As you can see from the 360-degree X-ray of the action camera, all the components are clearly visible under the scanner. Enough of the talking, let’s enjoy the tear-down as it happened.
