GoPro footage teases how stable its drone really is

Drones may have not yet littered our skies, but they do already litter product brochures and retail sites. Many of them come with their own camera for fun and profit, but a lot also swear fealty to GoPro's line of action cameras, long considered to be the authority in that field. Now, however, GoPro is trying to spread its wings almost literally by entering into the UAV market itself. Not only has it formally acknowledged the existence of such a project, it is now also teasing how buttery smooth footage taken from its quadcopter will be.

HTC Re action camera slashed to just $50

HTC Re action camera slashed to just $50

It was around this time last year that HTC unveiled a little stand-alone camera called the Re. With its periscope shape, it was, in a single word, odd. It was a bit of a cross between an action camera and a smartphone camera, but didn't exactly excel in either category.

D-Link’s new security cameras offer ultra-wide-angle lenses

D-Link has introduced a pair of new security cameras, both of which are the first among its wares to offer 180-degree Ultra-Wide View.

With such a lens, these cameras are able to cover large portions of a home or room in a single video feed.
