Highlights from the 2014 LA Auto Show

Video Cameras

The SoloShot2 pans and tilts the user's camera, to follow them while they're in action

A couple of years ago, we first heard about the SoloShot. It's a robotic device that sits between a video camera and a tripod, automatically panning the camera to keep the surfing, skiing, etc subject centered in the shot. The idea is that you can get video of yourself doin' your thing, without calling upon someone else to act as a videographer. The SoloShot2 takes things a step further, most notably by also tilting the camera.  Read More

The new Stealth 2, as compared to Drift's existing Ghost-S

The newly-announced Contour Roam3

For a while there, the Contour actioncam company was in a state of hiatus, leaving many people wondering when and if it would resume making cameras. Well, now it's under new ownership, and today it announced its latest offering – the Contour Roam3.
