GoPro just announced a pretty compelling offer for users of their cameras, unlimited video storage with GoPro Plus ($4.99 per month). The previous GoPro Plus plan allowed  subscribers to upload unlimited photos and up to 35 hours of video (about 250Gb). The worst part of the old plan was that the videos were transcoded and stored at a lower bit rate. Not anymore. The...

GoPro Sushi Conveyor Belt Video

While the title pretty much sums up this one, I rather enjoyed watching it. It is the closest thing to being a fly on a wall, in this case a GoPro on a Japanese sushi conveyor belt. Some people notice it, some don’t. Video after the break. (more…)

This video surfaced at the GoPro Awards and shows a crafty bald eagle stealing a camouflaged GoPro camera. The Camera was set up by GlacierChange researcher Matt Beedle in Juneau, Alaska where he was trying to get videos of bald eagles feeding. He got that, and more. Video after the break. After over an hour in the tree searching branches, the camera still alluded him. On the way back down he shook each branch hoping it would fall and his dad would see it hit the ground. Matthew’s dad had him toss an extra carabiner down to get...

The Birdie is 1/2 shuttlecock and 1/2 GoPro camera mount. Once the GoPro is mounted in the Birdie you simply play catch with it or throw it as high as you can. Think of it as a selfie stick that you can throw in the air for some cool aerial shots from above. Not quite...

GoPro has had a tough year, or two, as more and more competitors have been coming out with solid action cameras. Things look to have just turned around for GoPro. It looks like they have been quietly working hard on their latest GoPro 5 camera and an entirely new Drone dubbed the Karma. When I saw that GoPro was getting into the “drone” business my first reaction was “not another drone”. After lifting the covers, I am quite impressed. It looks like GoPro did...

Today GoPro pulled the wraps off of their latest camera the GoPro 5 Black. So what is different, what are the main specs? Read on for details of the new GoPro 5 ($399 October 2nd). (more…)

Yes, the title has a question mark at the end. As in, these specs are alleged and are most likely true… but no guarantees. This GoPro Hero5 spec leak is from Nokishita Camera (who has since taken down their post). Without further delay, here are some of the alleged Hero 5 specs; Camera weight of 118g with batter, 90g without battery Size – 62 mm x 44.6 mm x 33.7 mm USB Type-C port and HDMI MicroSD support up to 64GB Touchscreen...

The Aeon GoPro Gimbal Stabilizer (currently $320 on IndieGoGo) isn’t the first GoPro gimbal stabilizer on the market. There are plenty already in the market like the BeStable SteadyGim3 ($319), Feiyu G3 ($220),  Feiyu G4 ($250), and the SCG Glide Gear Scopio (

The lightest and smallest GoPro camera (as of today) is the new GoPro Hero 4 Session. There is no screen for information or video viewing. You can always use your smartphone with WiFi connection for more controls and video viewing. The buttons are even simpler now with one-button control for starting recording. The old style GoPro mounts will still work with the Hero4 Session Camera. The best part, other than the smaller size, is that that users won’t need a waterproof case. This means you will get better audio above and below...

Broadcasters who use GoPro Hero cameras for unique immersive shots should be pretty excited about the GoPro HeroCast Transmitter. There are two versions the HeroCast and the HeroCast BacPac. The HeroCast transmitter makes it so that broadcasters can access and use the great video live via a wireless feed. In other words they don’t have to wait for post-production video editing to see what they are shooting. The video is transmitted in full HD 1080p or 720p at 60 frames per...
