GoPro’s Session camera got off to a rocky start.
The tiny cube-shaped shooter — the smallest the company had ever made — received praise for its design while simultaneously being bashed for middling video quality and too few features for too high a price. It wasn’t until GoPro cut the price in half to $200, £200 or AU$300 that consumers were able to look past its shortcomings.

That’s excellent for such a tiny camera.
