DJI Osmo Action
As if the folks at GoPro haven’t had enough competitors going after their action camera market, a new one showed up yesterday. The DJI Osmo Action Camera is a pretty serious competitor to the GoPro Hero 7. Read on for some of the pros/cons and some comparison videos with the GoPro Hero 7 Black. (more…)

Rylo 360 Video Camera Top

This tiny action camera, the Rylo, manages to record 6.8K video in 360-degrees. That means you get super high resolution video that never misses a beat. Rylo packs in quite a few features in a very small package, like image stabilization, horizon leveling, front/back picture-in-picture, camera perspective control (after-the-fact), time-lapse, and more. Check out more details, pictures, and a video that sums it all up nicely after the break. (more…)

Last week was a massive user-data breach. This week Facebook enters smart display business with Portal, a wireless speaker, camera, LCD, and Alexa integrated gadget. Great timing Facebook! I think I will take a solid pass on Facebook having an open microphone and camera in my home. I will be massively surprised if this product succeeds at gaining mass user adoption. Ask yourself if you trust Facebook with this type of device in your home. I certainly don’t. There will be two Portal configurations: a 10.1-inch 720p version ($200),...

Let me just get this part out of the way, I am currently a fan of Google’s Nest line of cameras. They are proven, have fair priced recording options, and work outdoors (the outdoor version of course). That doesn’t mean there isn’t room for more competitors. While good, the Nest cameras have plenty of places they can improve. Enough on that for now. Amazon is having their 2018 prime day sale and have cut the cost of their Amazon Cloud Cam...

Watch out DJI, there is a new kid on the block. The new kid is Skydio and their autonomous flying camera is the R1 ($2,500). The Skydio R1 flies all by itself with no remote control. It is powered by an Nvidia Jetson AI chip, has 12 navigation cameras for obstacle avoidance, and a main 4k camera for tracking a target. the body is made of carbon fiber and aluminum. One of the best parts is that it is...

I am obsessed with dashboard car cameras. I have a camera in every car I own and love the peace of mind they provide should something go awry. Dashcams have provided me with some entertaining videos and have also helped to keep a dishonest person honest during a fender bender. After trying several brands of dashcams I have been loyal to BlackVue for the last 5+ years. The BlackVue cameras are made in Korea, they are high quality, and have rarely failed me. Most dashboard...

Wireless LED Endoscope Snake Light Camera 1

Before you swipe on by and ignore this little gadget, think of all of the times you could have used something like this in the past. Ever lost something in the drain, had to look in a tight spot that like an engine, ever wondered how clean or dirty your clothes dryer vent is…? There are a ton of uses for this inexpensive wireless LED endoscope.

For just $20-$30 you can have your very own 720p camera with built-in LED lighting at the end of a 5-meter semi-rigid cable. I know, it doesn’t sound that exciting… until you need just this tool (and don’t have it). In my best infomercial voice “but wait… there’s more… if you order now you also get the following attachments… a hook, a magnet, and an angled mirror!”.

The wireless endoscope works with iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows. (more…)

Up until now, most of the wearable camera options have been pretty dorky at best. Think Google Glass or Snapchat Spectacles. Two solid thumbs down.  The PogoCam has made an easy to use camera that is small enough to add on to your existing glasses (translation –...

Why not get your bikes LED head light to do some double duty as an HD camera. That is the idea behind the Cycliq Fly12 (and the Fly6 rear bike camera). The Cycliq Fly12 ($299) sports a 1080P camera with a 10-hour battery life, a built-in bike alarm, Strava integration, an LED 400 lumen light, and it is even weatherproof.    ...

The FrontRow Wearable Lifestyle Camera ($399) is a tad less cringey than the Google Glasses. I am not sure I would want to have a conversation with someone wearing a camera/microphone pointed at me the entire time. I guess I am not the target customer because I am sure there are voyeuristic folks who will love the idea...
