It’s hard enough dealing with competition from other photographers. Now, it looks like we’ll have to fight off dogs for wedding events as well. [Read more…]
GoPro’s brand has been built on the idea that consumers would use their action cameras to capture incredible feats of human achievements. As glorious and romanticizes as it may sound, the reality is, that’s not usually the case.
But just because a video doesn’t contain someone base jumping off a jagged cliff or backflipping a BMX bike over a congregation of alligators doesn’t make it any less exciting.
To prove that, YouTubers Tripp and Tyler have created NoPro, a parody video showing that every day activities can be just as exciting as the adrenaline-fueled sports we’re used to seeing captured with GoPro cameras. [Read more…]
A clamp is one of those few pieces of gear that will divide your life in two; before and after you got one.
Ok, that might be a bit of an exaggeration but it really is a must-have piece of kit in any photographer’s or filmmaker’s camera bag.
In this next video Griffith Hammond shares with us nine of the ways he uses the ‘most versatile piece of gear’, the clamp.
Rather than just compile a list Griffin shares with us examples from various assignments, including some he did for Bloomberg. These are all real life scenarios that will help you realize you need one (or another one) of these in your bag as well.
If you’ve considered buying an action camera, but have hesitated due to the cost of a GoPro, this little gem might be the answer. It’s called CAME-ZERO and it’s a budget version of GoPro’s HERO action cam lineup.
Just when I thought that the photography gear industry is getting a bit boring, Polaroid is stirring things up with a new patent suit against GoPro.
Polaroid (or rather C&A Marketing, which holds the Polaroid brand) filed a patent infringement suit claiming that the (now discounted) GoPro Session is infringing on their Polaroid Cube.

So Basically Polaroid is suing GoPro over making a cubical action camera.
Exactly five months after GoPro announced it is developing a quadcopter the company shared the first teaser video.
There’s a lot we don’t know when it comes to GoPro’s drone, like exactly when it will be released, how much it will cost or what features it will have. What we do know now though, thanks to the video below, is that stabilization in post production might soon be a thing of the past.
Although this footage is from a prototype drone, aerial footage doesn’t get much smoother than this.
When you come to think about it, up until a decade ago, photography had only one prominent battle field for us to play at: Nikon vs. Canon. bringing up the topic of which is the better brand could be a discussion topic for hours on end (and I mean real discussion when people talk, not flame wars when people hammer at the keyboard).
But as technology evolved the market was caught in a vice movement:
In the Reddit thread dedicated to this video, he describes the lighting conditions as terrible:
There were terrible lighting conditions so I shot in manual. It was dark clouds for 10 minutes then bright direct sunlight for another 10 the whole entire game .
And then goes on to describe his camera settings: [Read more…]
