Motorized actioncam stabilizing rigs are becoming increasingly common, although most of them are hand-held affairs. The GoPro-specific StabCam is a little different, however, in that it can be attached to any existing GoPro mount. As an added bonus, it can automatically track a moving subject. Read More
Footage from live events could soon become more immersive and extreme after GoPro announced the launch of its HeroCast micro transmitter. The new system will make it easier for broadcasters to incorporate GoPro footage into live productions, enabling them to offer viewers unique perspectives of that death-defying stunt or bone-crunching tackle as it happens.

It's certainly no secret that consumer drones are proving to be extremely popular for shooting aerial videos. That said, the things still aren't perfect – you can't fly them for more than about 25 minutes per battery charge, pre-flight procedures such as calibrating their compass can be tricky, they're noisy, and they can fall out of the sky and hurt people. Allsopp's Action Cam Skyshot Helikite, however, is claimed to have none of these problems. It's basically just a GoPro-carrying kytoon – a kite/balloon hybrid. Read More
As wearable cameras get smaller, lighter and more powerful, so their potential increases, and the new deal that GoPro has inked with the National Hockey League is proof of that. Some of the players in last weekend's 2015 All-Stars Skills Competition and 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game were kitted out with head-mounted GoPro cameras to capture all the action as it happened and give viewers a unique angle on the play.

For all the things that it's able to do, the GoPro Hero still isn't much better than other video cameras when it comes to shooting in the dark. That's why Knog introduced its made-for-GoPro Qudos camera light last year. Now, not surprisingly, the Qudos has a competitor – in the form of the Sidekick. Read More
GoPro has recently updated its lineup of actioncams with new models that include improved 4K video recording or a built-in touchscreen. But which one is right for you to capture your extreme exploits, or even those of your dog? Gizmag compares the specs and features of the Black and Silver GoPro Hero3+ and Hero4 cameras. Read More
As is so often the case when it comes to rapidly evolving technologies, the law is struggling to keep up with the surge in popularity of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). In an attempt to pave the way for commercial, philanthropic, and civil use of small UAVs in the US and around the world, a number of players in the field have teamed up to form the Small UAV Coalition.

GoPro has just announced three new models in its popular Hero actioncam line. The followup to the Hero 3, aptly named Hero 4, adds 4K recording at 30 frames per second. This should be a big improvement over the 4K/15fps seen on the previous model. Read More
Even with the beefed up battery of GoPro's Hero3+, there's always the possibility of the camera cutting out right as the action heats up. Living out this scenario on the powder-coated ski hills of California led the team at Polar Pro to explore ways of not just extending battery life, but doing so without interruption. The result is the PowerPole, an extendable pole-mount with around five GoPro batteries worth of juice packed inside. Read More
Last year, 3D Robotics announced its Iris quadcopter drone. Like other similar products, it can either be flown manually using radio remote control, or it can use its onboard GPS to autonomously fly between a series of preprogrammed waypoints. Today, however, the company announced its successor, the Iris +. Its big feature is the Follow Me function, which allows it to automatically fly along above a moving ground-based GPS-enabled Android device. This means that when equipped with a GoPro actioncam, it can get tracking footage of you as you cycle, ski or surf. Read More
