This summer, Canon turned to crowdfunding in an attempt to launch Canon IVY REC, a tiny clippable action camera. After a successful IndieGoGo campaign, Canon is now making IVY REC publicly available. This little action cam is made to go anywhere with you and shoot in harsh conditions, and it could hopefully succeed where Nikon KeyMission failed.
There have been rumours for a while, but now GoPro has officially announced the new GoPro Hero8 Black. Don’t get too excited, though, not much has changed in the camera itself since its predecessor. It does see a bump in max bitrate, though, going from the Hero7’s 78Mbps to 100Mbps for 4K footage. There’s also a new GoPro MAX 360° camera, follow up to the not-terribly-popular GoPro Fusion.
Recently, Insta360 announced the Insta360 GO, a super tiny portable, wearable, stabilised, 180-degree camera. Insta360 is exhibiting at IBC 2019, so we went to go check one out in person and have a chat with them while we’re here. Weighing in at just under 20 grams, the Insta360 GO is designed to go with you everywhere without getting in the way and is probably the smallest and lightest stabilised camera out there right now.
This is a little strange. Canon appears to be going the crowdfunding route with their new IVY REC camera. It’s the one they showed off at CP+ 2019 earlier this year that is rumoured to be one of three new cameras aimed at the younger generation scheduled for release this year. But instead of doing what they usually do and just announcing and releasing a product, they’re going to Indiegogo.
DJI has recently entered the action camera market with the Osmo Action. But not long before that, the company had launched Osmo Pocket, a tiny 3-axis gimbal that shoots 4K 60fps video. But which one is better? Which one should you get? MAURO’S FILMS has made an in-depth comparison and it could help you make a decision.
There are quite a few action cameras available right now. With the recently launched DJI Osmo Action, the market has become even more interesting. We’ve seen how it performs against its biggest competitor, GoPro Hero7 Black. But what if we compare it to other action cameras? In this video from Philip Bloom, you’ll see a side-by-side comparison of some of the most attractive action cameras currently available, including the latest one from DJI.
The DJI Osmo Action camera has been officially released. When it was first rumored, many of us had the same thought: how does it compare to the GoPro Hero7 Black? It seems that GoPro got themselves a new competitor in the world of small action cameras, but can DJI beat them? Here are a few side-by-side reviews to show you how the new Osmo Action stacks up against GoPro’s newest action camera.
