Have you ever wondered what your precious kitty does when they go wandering around the backyard and the neighborhood? Mike Prospero of Tom’s Guide attached an Insta360 camera to his cat’s collar in an attempt to see what the little fella is up to, and see it from the cat’s eyes. The video is quickly going viral, touching the hearts of all of us who love cats… And giving us ideas, too.
Fighter pilot films himself ejecting from crashing plane
A video shot in first person point of view shows a Russian fighter pilot ejecting from his crashing plane. The footage has emerged from the Russia-Ukraine war and shows the pilot exiting the aircraft and landing safely in a field some distance away. We later see the aircraft consumed by fire.
The pilot was carrying a GoPro-like action camera on his helmet or body, so we can get a pretty clear idea of what ejecting from a combat aircraft flying low level looks like. Basically, it’s not something I’d like to experience first-hand.
GoPro HERO 11 and HERO 11 Mini are here with improved resolution, stabilization, and more
Just as recently leaked photos suggested, the new GoPro Hero 11 is here. And while it’s absolutely the same on the outside, it comes from some improvements on the inside. The latest action cam has an increased photo resolution, improved video stabilization, and extended interval recording times.
But there’s more. GoPro hasn’t only announced the Hero 10’s successor, but also its smaller version. The GoPro Hero 11 Mini is here as well, so let’s check out the specs of both new cameras.
Leaked photos and Hero 10 discounts hint GoPro Hero 11 is coming soon
Exactly this time last year, photos and specs started leaking for GoPro Hero 10. So, not surprisingly – it looks like the Hero 11 is on its way a year later. The photos have already leaked, showing us the upcoming action camera from all angles. But there are some sweet deals on the new model which indicate that the new one is just around the corner.
The Insta360 ONE RS is a worthy successor, adds 6K video, Active HDR and native FlowState stabilisation
Insta360 has today announced the new Insta360 ONE RS. It’s the follow-up to the company’s popular and modular Insta360 ONE R, released in 2020. It boasts some fancy new upgrades in both the core module as well as the 4K “Boost” module, but is it any good?
I’ve been playing with one for the last couple of weeks, so today we’re going to talk about some of its differences and benefits over its predecessor and take a look at some sample footage from both shot side-by-side to see how it compares. For those who just want the announcement info and the specs, you can check out the announcement article here. For the rest of you, carry on reading.
Insta360 launches its second-generation Insta360 ONE RS modular action camera
Insta360 has today announced the new Insta360 ONE RS modular action camera. The Insta360 ONE RS is the follow up to the popular Insta360 ONE R released in 2020 and brings with it a new 4K Boost module capable of shooting 48-megapixel stills with a new 1/2″ sensor and even boasts a 6K 2.35:1 cinematic mode. There’s a new Core module, offering better in-camera stabilisation and audio.
Being modular, the new 4K boost lens can be swapped out for the pre-existing 360° module or the 5.3K Leica 1-inch module. And, of course, the new 4K Boost lens is compatible with the ONE R core unit and the new ONE RS core unit is compatible with the old 4K module as well as with the previously released Quick Reader for the Insta360 ONE R.
42 fun camera moves for you to try with your 360° or action camera
Teeny tiny action cameras and 360° cameras open up a lot of filming options that just simply aren’t available to larger DSLR and mirrorless camera setups, let alone big chunky cinema cameras. You’re not limited to just clamping one to your chest or handlebars while you go out cycling, either.
There are many very cool effects that you can create with one and in this video, Luke Edwin shows us 42 of his favourite small camera shots that he’s created with his action cameras and 360° cameras over his last few years as a full-time YouTube content creator. It’s a fantastic video that while obviously pointing out the limitations of certain cameras in some situations, provides a lot of really cool ideas for ways to film things – especially with 360° cameras or really tiny cameras like the Insta360 GO 2.
DJI’s tiny new Action 2 is going to set you back $850 with the selfie screen and microphone
DJI has announced the new DJI Action 2 action camera, and they seem to have taken a leaf out of Insta360’s book by making it modular – sort of. Technically, they’ve cut the size of the camera in half, having just the lens and sensor on the front and a large OLED that fills the entire rear of the unit. But, you can also plug it into expandable modules magnetically.
The new camera features a 1/1.7″ sensor with an f/2.8 lens offering a wide 155° field of view. It’s waterproof down to 10 metres (32ft) and with a waterproof case, you can take it as far as 60 metres (196ft). The 32GB of internal storage lets you save 4K, 2.7K and 1080p video up to 120fps and you can add a microSD card up to 256GB if you need more.
