Yay! GoPro Has A 360 Camera But It Requires Six GoPro Cameras

At this age where 360-degree videoing has become something of a hype, you will be surprised that an action cam specialist like GoPro has yet to jump on the bandwagon. Well, as a matter of fact it has, just, but GoPro did not come up with a single unit like many makers had done, which kind of surprises us. Instead of a single unit camera developed from the ground up, the GoPro Omni Synchronized Six-Camera Spherical Rig is, as the name implies, a rig which uses six GoPro HERO4 cameras, along with a proprietary hardware located at the center of the rig, to achieve the 360 videoing. There is, of course, a software optimized for Omni for fine tuning the videos and Continue reading Yay! GoPro Has A 360 Camera But It Requires Six GoPro Cameras

GoPro HERO4 Session: The Smallest GoPro Yet Takes on a Cube Form

GoPro is phenomena. It basically sets the benchmark for action cameras. Though compact, its matchbox-size form factor is not everyone’s cuppa and is clearly aerodynamically non-beneficial and that’s not to mention it won’t fit everywhere, but that’s set to change with the cube-style GoPro HERO4 Session. As you can see, the HERO4 Session is unlike any of its predecessor. Not only did it takes on a radically different form, it is also touted as the smallest and lightest GoPro yet. Unlike previous GoPro models that requires a separate housing to get under water, the HERO4 Session comes waterproof to 33 feet (10 meters), out-of-the-box and a simple one-button control enables capturing of 8MP stills or 1080p60 video quickly without fuss.

Travler Camera Case Will Add a Vintage Flair to Your GoPro Camera

GoPro is not an actual camera. It is an action camera, but that hasn’t stop many folks from using one as their primary camera and if you are one of them, may we suggest that you do so in style? Like slipping on a Travler Camera Case for GoPro?

If you are traveling with GoPro and not anticipating any rough activities like jumping off the cliff, we think the Travler Camera Case may be your favorite action camera-turn-everyday-camera’s best friend.

GoPro HEROCast Lets You Transmit Actions to Live TV for a Cool $7,500

We try to be neutral about a product most of the time, but this $7,500 (not a typo, btw) “professional live broadcast transmitter” called HEROCast from action camera maker GoPro certainly had us talking. Now, we are not expert here but seven and a half grand is kind of excessive, even though it promised 1080p image delivery at 60fps using H.264 encoding with low glass-to-glass latency. But we have to admit that it does look pretty cool and most importantly, compact. While the ability to get live feed of the action in POV as it happens sound alluring, not everyone is open to having a transmitter-equipped camera stuck to their head. But if you have to please the audience, you got to do what you got to do right? Continue reading GoPro HEROCast Lets You Transmit Actions to Live TV for a Cool $7,500

SteadyGim3 EVO Stabilizes Your GoPro and Recharges It Too

The usage of GoPro has went beyond action sports. Thanks to its compact form factor and excellent video quality, people are using it to record home movies and stuff too.

This is where accessories like the SteadyGim3 EVO GoPro 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal from China-based BestSteadyCam comes into play. Do not mistake this as just another camera pole; this baby here is motorized and uses high-torque brushless motors to enable smooth rotation.

CAMpanion Marries Your Smartphone with a GoPro, Lets You Video Front and Back Simultaneously

GoPro is awesome, but it is not without its fair share of shortcomings. Being this tiny, it can’t be effectively held by hands if you are going to use it as a regular camera and low light imaging is almost impossible, and that’s not to mention the display, if any, that’s a little too small for actual composing of shots. The solution? CAMpanion. CAMpanion is a new accessory which marries your smartphone with a GoPro by introducing two things: a mounting plate and a GoPro mount. With your GoPro slips inside the GoPro mount and the mounting plate adhered to your smartphone or smartphone case (or wherever you fancy), the CAMpanion turns two devices into one, allowing you to harness the generous screen real estate of your smartphone for shot composure and letting you video both front and back simultaneously for an action/reaction video.
