It may have been only a year ago that GoPro released its HERO2 actioncam, but the company isn’t content to just let things lie. Today, it announced the release of its HD HERO3 line of cameras. There will be three versions available, with the top-of-the-line model able to shoot at 4K resolution, which is four times the number of pixels provided by 1080p.  Read More

The GoPro app gives full control of the camera's settings and live scene-preview

Have you ever jumped out of plane with a GoPro camera attached to your helmet and wondered, as you hurtle to Earth, what the resulting video will look like? Well, if you have, you've got your priorities all wrong, but you could also be in luck after GoPro launched an iOS app which gives you live preview and full control over the camera's settings.  Read More

The BoomPro is a device that allows GoPro HERO users to get a shot of themselves in action

Have you ever seen actioncam footage where the camera is mounted on a pole attached to the shooter’s helmet, looking back at them? If not, well, it’s pretty bizarre – their head is the only stable object in the shot, with the rest of the world appearing to swivel around it. The BoomPro is a prototype device, designed to allow anyone to get these kinds of shots using their GoPro HERO.  Read More

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

GoPro's Wi-Fi BacPac + Wi-Fi Remote Combo Kit allows users to remotely control up to 50 HE...

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

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

GoPro has just released its newest actioncam, the HD HERO2

If you've been holding off on getting a GoPro HD HERO actioncam ... well, you were right to wait. Today, the California-based company announced the release of its HD HERO2 camera, which is claimed to be "2X as Powerful in Every Way." More specifically, it has an 11-megapixel image sensor (as opposed to the regular camera's 5 mp), along with a new processor that is said to be twice as fast, and a redesigned lens that GoPro claims is both twice as sharp and capable of a complete 170-degree field of view even in widescreen 1080p mode. There's also good news for consumers who think the existing HD HERO is all the camera they need.  Read More

XSories has released a silicone cover and an underwater lens (not pictured) for the GoPro ...

GoPro’s HERO HD is certainly one of the most popular actioncams on the market, perhaps more so now that its long-awaited LCD viewfinder/playback screen is available. As is the case with other digital cameras, however, the glare of direct sunlight can make it difficult to see what’s on that screen. Also, as we noted in an actioncam video comparison, the HERO’s underwater shots tend to be a little on the soft-focus side. Well, two new products from camera gizmo-maker XSories are designed to address both of these situations.  Read More
