New Go Pro Session Camera Tested by FullMag

FullMag tests the new, smaller GoPro Session by destructively testing an existing GoPro Hero Black using a bullet nearly the same size as the camera itself, a .45-70. The new camera has excellent picture, but the old one… is disintegrated.

Complete with the usual slow-motion, my favorite part is about 1:15 seconds in showing the recoil operation of the gun and how the hands holding it have almost zero effect on it until the shoulder can stop the rear ward motion. Its almost like Fullmag is a ghost.

    I'm sure those responsible enjoyers of the great outdoors spent the rest of the day cleaning up all those little pieces of electronics before going home.

    If I was going to shoot a video camera, I'd do my very best to record myself shooting it in the hopes that I somehow could capture a really cool image of the bullet. I know it'd be a long shot (which is why I don't typically, as in ever, shoot my cameras), but it's worth a try. Nice footage otherwise though.

      @Giolli Joker I know. I was speaking of the gopro. Even though the frame rate isn't very high on the gopros, I'd still angle it to *hopefully* catch a glimpse of the bullet. Which is why I mentioned it'd be a long shot. This is also assuming you could hit it in a way that doesn't damage the data card.
