Stainless steel and aluminum are used to offer a more durable build

The GoPro HD Hero 2 comes with its own waterproof case, but that case wasn't tough enough for Marc Ellis. So, he built his own Hero housing made out of aluminum and stainless steel. We can't verify that it's more rugged in the field, but it definitely gives the GoPro a tougher, no-nonsense look.  Read More

You can take that GoPro HERO actioncam of yours, and stick it someplace inaccessible ... after which, you’ll be able to remotely start and stop recording, if you’ve got GoPro’s new Wi-Fi BacPac + Wi-Fi Remote Combo Kit. The company officially released the system today.  Read More

The Bobber is a floating handle for the GoPro HERO, to keep it from sinking if it's droppe...

One of the great features of the GoPro HERO actioncam is the fact that it is waterproof down to 197 feet (60 meters). Unfortunately, should you lose hold of your non-floating camera in the water ... well, even if it survives its trip down to the bottom of the ocean/lake, you’ll likely never see it again. That’s why The Bobber exists.  Read More

GoPro has just released the Dive Housing, which reportedly allows HERO actioncam users to ...

Although you may have seen plenty of underwater videos shot using the GoPro HERO actioncam, its lens was never really designed for underwater videography – as we previously illustrated in a video report, the footage sometimes looks a little fuzzy. As of today, however, would-be Jaques Cousteaus can now purchase a dive-specific GoPro housing, that promises sharp images.  Read More

Whether you're speeding down the slopes, on a biking epic through the woods or riding the rapids in a kayak, having to wait until you get to a laptop to share your recorded adventures with friends and family is nothing short of inconvenient. The ION AIR PRO HD Sports Video Camera is said to be one of the first actioncams capable of recording full HD video and sharing it in real time on social networking sites. The camera does this by wirelessly connecting with a smartphone or tablet running the company's free-to-download app, although users will need to buy an extra bit of kit to make all this possible.  Read More

The CamOne Infinity has an LCD screen built in and boasts an interchangeable lens system

Despite its square, bulky build, GoPro does very well in the action cam market. So it's not all too surprising to see another competitor cloning the GoPro's form factor in its own HD action camera. The CamOne Infinity is more than just a GoPro knockoff, though - it offers some serious features rolled up into a compact package, including an interchangeable lens system.  Read More

Mountain bikers, hikers and other adventurers wishing to record their outings on video now have another camcorder at their disposal – Sony’s Bloggie Sport HD. It’s a ruggedized (yes, that’s a word) version of the company’s existing Bloggie camera, and continues with the line’s smartphone-like form, which includes a 2.7-inch touchscreen display.  Read More

The HEADCASE PRO, sprouting a few attachments

Despite the continuous onslaught of competitors, the GoPro HERO is still quite likely the world’s most popular actioncam – this is no doubt due in part to its tough polycarbonate housing, for which a wide variety of aftermarket mounting accessories are available. Portland, Oregon-based videographer/inventor Jim Clark, however, has some issues with that housing. He managed to break his when his HERO fell off of a car, and he also feels that it could use some more attachment points for things like lights or tripod heads. The result: his heavy-duty aluminum HEADCASE PRO and HEADGEAR housings for GoPro.  Read More
