GoPro launches new HD Hero2 digital camera

GoPro launches new HD Hero2 digital camera

I have had a GoPro Motorsports Hero HD camera for a long time now. This tiny camera supports HD resolutions and comes with a suction mount for attaching to a car. It's a very cool little camera, with a very confusing menu system. Each time I want to change resolutions I end up digging for the instructions. GoPro has announced a new version of this little camera in three styles called the HD Hero2.

Panasonic Nubo wants to kill Dropcam with 4G

Streaming security cameras are great, until your WiFi connection dies and your virtual peephole gets cut off. Enter the Panasonic Nubo, throwing 4G LTE into the mixture along with some smart home ambitions. Panasonic isn’t aiming low, either, claiming the Nubo is a “Dropcam killer” from the outset, and aiming to out-perform everything on the Nest-owned streaming camera’s spec sheet. I caught up with the Panasonic Cameramanager team to find out why Nubo shouldn’t just be on your home office wall, but hitching a ride in your suitcase.

Inside the charming indie movie filmed entirely with iPhone 6

Inside the charming indie movie filmed entirely with iPhone 6

If you still needed convincing that smartphone cameras are more than capable of professional results, "Romance in NYC" may do the trick. Shot not only entirely from the a single character's point of view, but using nothing more than an iPhone 6 and a selection of apps and accessories, the 15 minute short was crowdfunded on Kickstarter in late 2014 and is now making the rounds of the festival circuit. I caught up with director Tristan Pope to find out what made him put down his pro-camera kit for a smartphone, how the iPhone 6 delivered in unexpected ways, and why he ended up wearing a GorillaPod like a Hannibal Lecter mask.

Millennium Falcon drone: functional and one-of-a kind

Personal drones are fun toys (and useful tools), and we've seen them surface in increasingly fashionable forms. There's the Bionic Bird, for example, which looks like any other bird but comes with a few mechanical upgrades. That Back to the Future DeLorean drone is even better, mashing together nostalgia and skilled craftsmanship for a miniature time traveler. And now there's the Millennium Falcon drone, latest to the growing number of flying vehicle replicas taking to the sky. As always, we've a video of it in action after the jump.

YouTube beta feature allows viewing from multiple angles

YouTube beta feature allows viewing from multiple angles

YouTube is rolling out a new experiment today, allowing you to see videos from multiple angles. The feature, in beta of course, brings in multiple camera angles you can cycle through as the video is playing. There’s currently only one video that is known to have this multi-angle feature, which of course would need to be shot with multiple cameras from different perspectives. The goal seems to be aimed at encouraging creators to upload to YouTube, but it could have a more social aspect, too.

Selfies, flash contributed to plane crash, says NTSB

The National Traffic Safety Board (NTSB) has released their findings on a crash that occurred in May of last year, and are blaming selfies and the use of flash for bringing the aircraft down. According to their report, the pilot experienced spacial disorientation as a result of being distracted while flying.

HTC’s silly video just ruined the HTC One

HTC’s silly video just ruined the HTC One

As someone who is lucky enough to see several modern smartphone slide across his desk, I can say the HTC One (M8) is among the nicest I’ve ever been lucky enough to toy with. Sense is enough overlay to improve Android, and the build quality is special. It’s that phone HTC is trying to defend in their latest video, and it’s that very same phone which makes that video so confusing. Rather than improve on their efforts, HTC is in attack mode, but why?
