It looks like GoPro has gone with a complete redesign for the new GoPro Hero 8, expected to be announced at some point next month. Leaked photos posted to Photo Rumors show what looks like a rather impressive looking built-in microphone, and even a hotshoe mount for attaching various accessories.
At just about every show I’ve been to for the last couple of years where Canon has been in attendance, they’ve been showing off some concept camera prototypes. We featured a couple of them last year during The Photography Show 2018 in the UK. And at CP+ 2019 in Japan a few months ago, they were showing off more. Now, Nikkan is reporting that three of these concept cameras will be released before the end of this year and suggested they are cameras we’ve seen before.
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.
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.
It looks like Canon may be hoping to succeed where Nikon failed with its short-lived KeyMission series of cameras. The folks at Cinema5D spotted a rather interesting looking camera on the Canon stand at CP+ 2019 this year, and so they had a quick chat with them about it. It looks like Canon may be planning to tackle the action camera market.

Even though I’m not primarily a Canon shooter, I’m always intrigued by the concept cameras and sensors that Canon bring to show off at shows around the world. During The Photography Show, Canon brought two with them. Actually, they brought a bunch, but they all basically stem from two different types of camera. We had a chat with David Parry on the Canon stand to find out more.
It’s not much of a secret that GoPro is struggling. They’ve dropped from a value of more than $10 billion at their peak to around $761 million today. Thousands of staff have been laid off over the last couple of years. And they also tried, and failed, to expand out into the drone industry. Recently, they announced that they’re opening up not only their technology and patents for licensing, but also the GoPro name itself.
Now it seems that the entire company may be getting sold after a report suggests that Chinese electronics giant Xiaomo is considering putting in an offer. Xiaomi are not new to action cameras, having previously been the main distributor and brand for the original YI HD Action Camera. But adding a brand like GoPro to their portfolio would certainly open them up to a huge global audience outside of China.
The new Sony RX0 action camera was announced earlier this year. 4K HDMI output, 1080p at up to 1,000fps, wireless timecode sync for multiple cameras, and a 1″ sensor made it a serious competition to GoPro. Kai Wong got his hands on one of these, and in his latest video, he compares it to the GoPro Hero 6. On paper, Sony RX0 sure looks promising. But can it beat GoPro in real life conditions?
The GoPro Hero 6 is here. It’s new, it’s shiny, and it’s $100 more expensive than the old one. But is it worth the upgrade? The GoPro Hero 5 was something of a disappointment for many. Sure, it had built in waterproofing and touchscreen. But beyond those, it did really seem to offer all that much over the GoPro Hero 4 Black.
So how does the GoPro Hero 6 compare? This video, from the folks over at Vistek, puts the new Hero 6 head-to-head with its predecessor, the GoPro Hero 5 to see if it’s really worth upgrading.
