Shortly after the GoPro HERO 10 Black appeared in the market, the first problem appeared as well: the camera seemingly overheats in only 20 minutes. GoPro even admitted the problem, but now it’s offering the solution to it. With the latest firmware update, your HERO 10 shall overheat no more.
I use the GoPro Hero cameras all the time for my video productions, but not for action. I like the tiny Hero’s for moving car shots, street walking and just general situations where a little camera can be placed in out of the way places to pick up my shot.
GoPro is soon to announce the HERO 10, its next flagship camera. As it usually happens, some details have already leaked, telling us more about it before the official launch. The recently leaked photos show us that the HERO 10 will have the same design as its predecessor, the HERO 9. But there will reportedly be some improvements, too.
GoPro Hero 9 has been officially announced. Now we can finally confirm what we saw in leaked photos and unboxing video: yes, it does have a color selfie screen and it’s capable of shooting 5K video at 30 fps. But there are some other improvements over its predecessor, such as a 23.6 MP sensor. So, let’s check out what the new and improved Hero 9 brings to the table.
A few weeks ago, we had a chance to see some leaked photos of the upcoming GoPro Hero 9. Rumor has it that it will include some novelties such as a color front screen and 5K video capabilities. Well, if you’re curious to see more of the Hero 9 before it gets announced, take a look at this unboxing video that’s leaked before the official announcement.
According to recently leaked images, GoPro is about to get a big change in the Hero 9 model. It looks like the latest action cam will have a selfie screen in full color. In other words, the front display will no longer only show your camera settings, but it might come in handy for vloggers and selfie-takers, too.
360° cameras have become much more readily available over the last couple of years and most of us own or can get our hands on at least one of those these days. Both types of camera offer a lot of versatility, but they’re not always that easy to film with, especially if you’re used to bigger cameras. But they both can offer some great advantages.
In this video, Jordy at Cinecom takes the Insta360 ONE R out for a spin with both the 4K action camera module and the 360° module, to show us nine creative filmmaking techniques you can use to step up your game when shooting with small cameras.
For all their ups and downs, GoPro is still at the forefront when it comes to action cameras. The latest iteration of their flagship camera, the GoPro Hero 8 Black, has received very favourable reviews since its release last October. But how do the low budget “knock off” action cameras really compare?
That’s what Gene Nagata, otherwise known as Potato Jet, wanted to find out. So, he pairs them up to challenge them side-by-side. Ultimately, it looks like the $349 Hero 8 Black does win, which you’d expect given the cost, although the $119 Akaso v50 Pro doesn’t look too terrible for the price.
Action cameras seem to come out with alarming regularity, and more players are jumping into the field every year. But there’s been very little real innovation in action cameras beyond improving on what already exists. Insta360, though has taken a very different approach with their entry into the world of action cameras.
Announced today, the Insta360 ONE R sees Insta360 team up with Leica to develop a modular action camera that offers three different ways to shoot. A dual-lens “Super 5.7K” 360° module, a 4K wide-angle module, and a 1″ 5.3K wide-angle module developed in partnership with Leica. And there’s even an Aerial Edition which lets you mount it to a drone.
