More and more companies are entering the action cam market and a lot of them like Garmin’s Virb Elite, are offering more features at a lower price.

12Apr Gopro Hero 3 Aluminum Cage

I’ve already signed up for the Kickstarter Gopro Hero 3 cage, but Redrock Micro’s offering does look pretty nice. They are calling this the “Cobalt Cage” and I had a chance to play around with it for a bit at NAB. The fit and finish looks great and the price isn’t too bad at $99. […]

31Mar HERO 3 Black Edition USB audio adapter cable test

Here’s a quick test of the USB to 3.5mm adapter cable for the Gopro Hero 3. The waterproof housing for the Hero 3 doesn’t allow access to the usb port so for this video I simply set it on top of my field monitor. The wireless mic is set to the same output level as I use […]

That’s because there is so much delay between what the camera is seeing and what the tablet is displaying that I was easily able to photograph the tablet before the screen caught up with […]

08Dec GoPro Hero 3 black edition cellphone tethering delayed

The first thing I tried to play around with this morning was controlling the Hero 3 with my cellphone. I installed the app, enabled wifi on the Hero 3 and got no connection. So I fumbled around in the pdf manual for a little while and found a section that says there is supposed to be a […]

17Nov Gopro Hero 3 Black edition could be the best price steady cam on the market.

If you’ve kept track of the updates to Premiere Pro CS6 you might remember that the Warp Stabilizer feature used previously in after effects is now built into Premiere. The Warp Stabilizer basically works by moving the video footage around to compensate for steady motion. One of the problems with this is that if you shot […]
