New GoPro Hero8 Must Be Better, Right?

by The Editors on October 1, 2019

We’ve rarely had a GoPro camera that functioned at all, let alone allowed us to bring back epic footage of our action fumbling, however, everyone seems to love these cameras so here’s the latest: the GoPro Hero 8. With each additional GoPro product launch we hope Gopro will release something that we can depend on day in and day out. Who knows, maybe this is finally the one.

GoPro Stabilizes With The HERO7 Black

by The Editors on September 20, 2018

Hey action camera nerds, GoPro just added a new number to their Hero line (7 it seems) and it does a bunch of cool new stuff that most people will never use, but if you’re into these things then you’re probably going to want to upgrade to the newest one when they become available on September 27, 2018. Or, to a couple of them since it seems GoPro shooters can never have too many of the difficult to use, annoying little boxes of image capturing technology. For all the official details, please follow the jump.

GoPro’s QuikStories, not Quiksilver

by The Editors on October 3, 2017

Did you think GoPro’s new QuikStories auto-editing app was a partnership with Quiksilver? So did we. Maybe it was the missing “c,” or the scribble type. Though on reflection we realized that who ever designed the QuikStories logo was probably still in middle school when Natas Kapas created his Ralph Steadmanesque blown ink “impaired” logo work for Quiksilver. Maybe it’s a tribute. . .

GoPro Updates Specs With Hero6 Camera

by The Editors on September 28, 2017

Camera nerds rejoice. The new GoPro Hero6 Black features 4K60 and 1080p240 packed into the same body that the Hero5 Black came in. If those numbers mean anything to you then you’re probably as excited as GoPro CEO Nick Woodman is.

“HERO6’s next-level image quality, video stabilization and three times faster QuikStories performance makes it a powerful storytelling extension of your smartphone,” said Woodman. “It’s never been easier to live it, then share it…using a GoPro.”

They also launched an “immersive 5.2K spherical content” camera that will easily make those surround videos that are so annoying to pan around in. To buy one click here, for the official word from GoPro, please follow the jump.

GoPro Drones The Cloud With New Hero5

by The Editors on September 19, 2016

GoPro founder Nick Woodman unpacked a drone load of product today (including the company’s long-awaited financial hail mary, the Karma drone) during a press conference at Squaw Valley Resort, California. In addition to the drone, the list includes a new line of Hero5 cameras, and a cloud-based software package designed to make accessing GoPro’s huge files much easier.

“With these new products, we’re delivering on our promise to make it easy to capture and share engaging stories,” said Woodman. “HERO5’s ability to auto-upload photos and videos to a GoPro Plus account dramatically simplifies mobile, on-the-go editing, sharing and enjoyment. This is a game-changing experience that we will continue to build upon.” Woodman adds, “We’re stoked to launch Karma and show how much more it is than a drone. Karma packs Hollywood-caliber aerial, handheld and gear-mounted image stabilization into a backpack for $799. It’s so easy to use, a beginner can have fun straight away.”

While we’re personally sick and tired of our neighbors continually flying their drones over our house (net gun?), this GoPro Karma will certainly integrate well with GoPro’s line of cameras and looks to be great for RC hobbiests.  The move to the cloud is a step in the right direction as GoPro looks to move their business past hardware an into digital services. For the official word from GoPro, please follow the jump.

GoPro Having A Rough Go

by The Editors on May 9, 2016

gopro_logoNot really sure how things could be worse for GoPro. They’ve announced terrible first quarter results and delayed launching their next big product, the Karma drone, according to a story on The Verge.

[GoPro] saw its revenue drop by 49.5 percent from the same period in 2015, and it swung from a $22 million profit to a $121 million loss. The company also announced that its new drone, the Karma, will be delayed until the winter holiday. It was originally slated to be released in the first half of this year.

Yes, a $121 million loss for the quarter. We’ve never really understood the mass appeal of drones, or of GoPro cameras for that matter, so we guess we don’t find much of this recent news all that surprising. Click here for the official GoPro financials, or here for some of Jeff Harbaugh’s thoughts.

Incase Gopro

Those who’ve actually used the GoPro camera that their mom’s got them last Christmas know what a nightmare it can be keeping all the pieces together. There’s the cords, the cases, the mounts. Never having the right piece was enough to make us mothball our camera for weeks at a time. But incase has a solution with their new Mono Kit.

The Mono Kit, an innovative silicone travel case that serves as a protective container for one GoPro® camera as well as batteries and accessories; the Dual Kit, which holds two GoPro® cameras and the Accessory Cartridge, the ideal travel bag for camera cords, batteries, mounts, housings and back doors.

Hear that mom? If you bought the camera, looks like you’re going to need to buy the case as well. They go on sale at Best Buy and Goincase.com on August 31, 2014. For the official word from incase, follow the jump. [click to continue…]

Period. Yes, it’s that big of a deal. Now, GoPro has won an Emmy from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (Natas, natas, natas . . .) in a category they basically created: Inexpensive Small Rugged HD Camcorders.
