DJI is known for their quadcopters no doubt. They, in my opinion, are the most reliable quads on the market today. Now they are applying their proven 3-axis stabilization to a handheld gimbal, the DJI Osmo ($649) with a 4k camera along for the ride. The camera shoots 4K video and up to 120fps at 1080P. Heck you can even put a better camera/lens on the stabilizer if that is your thing. There is a joystick...

The saying goes… the best camera is the one you have with you. It is true. And while I wish I could/would carry my DSLR camera with me at all times it just isn’t practical. So, a full 95-percent of my photos are shot with my Apple iPhone. Well things are about to change in a big way. The Light L16 Camera ($1,699, minus $400 if you order this month) has 16 individual cameras and is the world’s first multi-aperture computational camera. What the heck does that mean? It means...

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...

Sena has been making great motorcycle helmet intercoms and entertainment systems for a while now. I currently own the SMH10D-11 set and really enjoy being able to have music streaming from my phone to the helmet. It is also quite handy for communicating with my friends via the intercom while on rides or taking phone calls. Sounds like a bad idea I know. The first 2 minutes of every phone call is me arguing with the person on the other end of the line. They never believe...

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...

The market for out-of-the-box fully capable quadcopter just got pretty crowded. This is great news for the consumers of these gadgets as the pricing is starting to get more reasonable. Or at least the feature sets are matching the prices. The latest announcement in the video camera quadcopter arena comes from 3D Robotics (3DR) with their Solo Quadcopter. The 3DR Solo ($999) wants to give you a fully loaded platform that is simple to use. The Solo includes a video game styled transmitter, a 3-axis gimbal, GPS flight management, clever...

If you are anxiously waiting until midnight to order your Apple Watch, here is an unboxing video to help tide you over. Florence Santrot of Metronews has gotten ahold of an Apple Watch and gives users a better idea of what to expect upon opening the box. I am glad the charging cable is nice and long. Video after the break. ...

I am sure that the folks at GoPro aren’t super happy about the SJ4000 Waterproof Action Camera ($66). The camera, mounts, and case look awfully familiar if you know what I mean. I am not going to go into that here. The SJ400 sports camera has some pretty good specs, comes loaded with brackets, and is relatively easy to use. The CMOS camera has a wide 170-degree viewing angle, H.264 video format, 1920...
