Re: star trails hero session 4

The Session (Hero4) dosen't have the same shutter controls as the Hero5 Session or the Hero5 Black and Hero4 Black/Silver. You need to be able to set the shutter to at least 5 seconds and in many cases as long as 30 seconds to be able to capture enough light from the stars to be able to make star trails.

Re: star trails hero session 4

Yes the Hero session is the first model they came out with a new one called the Hero 5 Session that has that but restricted to  I think no more then 15 seconds. the Hero 4 Silver and Hero 5 black are the cameras for it .
