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.
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.
On 26 May current year, eight climbers went missing in the Indian Himalayas. Sadly, seven of them were found dead 20 days later, presumably by triggering an avalanche. A recently recovered GoPro footage shows what could have been their last minutes before the tragic event.
We’ve all had moments where we thought to ourselves “This would be the perfect opportunity for some bullet time!”. We’ve seen some DIY rigs in the past, as well as some not-so-portable solutions, but this looks like it could be just the ticket for throwing in your backpack alongside your GoPro.
Developed by filmmaker and inventor, Artem Gavr, The Wingo Pro looks to be an evolution of the coat hanger technique. A much more refined evolution, that offers a little more control over your shot. As in, you can actually angle the camera to eliminate the string and the hand holding it from appearing in the footage. It’s currently on Kickstarter, and it doesn’t look that bad at all.
When you bring together animals and GoPro cameras, you can get some really interesting shots. Kyle Naegeli aka The Fish Whisperer decided to take a dive into muddy waters of a local pond. But not literally – he strapped a GoPro onto a turtle, so it filmed the underwater world of its little home.
Well, that didn’t take long, did it? It was only just over a week ago that it was first rumoured that DJI was to enter the action camera market. And just yesterday when DJI started their countdown to an announcement that many suspect will be about the aforementioned action camera rumour. Now, a big leak of photos along with some specs seems to confirm that this is exactly what DJI is planning to announce on May 15th. The DJI Osmo Action.
