Watch Grandma fly a drone

It's clear that this grandma doesn't live in downtown Washington DC. What you're about to see is a GoPro-captured grandmother by the name of Els Van Boldrik capturing her morning, including walking the dog, watering the flowers, and gathering some fruit. With a DJI drone and an attached GoPro camera, this elderly woman also takes to the streets like a teenager, remote controlling her flying machine with the greatest of ease.

Watch a camera shutter and exploding orange in ultra slow motion

Watch a camera shutter and exploding orange in ultra slow motion

Slow motion videos let us look at ordinary things -- water dripping, bugs flying, etc. -- in an entirely new and often fascinating way. All the while, this form of video also provides us with a look at the finer details that happen in the blink of an eye (or faster) that we'd otherwise never get a glimpse of. A camera's shutter is one of those things, snapping at impossibly fast speeds and being little more than a clicking sound to users. On the flip side of things, there's also exploding oranges.

GoPro HERO4 footage shows post-update HD slow motion

GoPro HERO4 owners will soon have a bit of additional functionality via their tiny action cameras: high-definition slow motion. The functionality will be delivered by a soon-to-arrive firmware update, which will bring 720p-resolution recording at 240fps. Users are still waiting to score such a feature, but at least one GoPro out in the wild has it, and thanks to the owner we can all see what kind of footage is produced. A couple videos have surfaced demonstrating the 720p slow-motion, and they're gorgeous.

Seek XR thermal smartphone camera brings optical zoom

This past September, Seek Thermal introduced its Seek camera for smartphones, which gives the handsets the ability to look at the world around them based on its heat levels. Keeping in step with its biggest competitor, FLIR ONE, Seek has now introduced a new updated thermal camera called the Seek XR, and with it comes a boost in functionality via the inclusion of optical zoom. This increases the camera's usefulness for those who, for example, use the camera for spotting wildlife at night rather than just scanning a wall for water pipes.

Light & Motion’s Sidekick adds light to your GoPro

Light & Motion’s Sidekick adds light to your GoPro

GoPro makes some nifty little cameras, but their usefulness drops drastically when put up against a low-light situation. External lights are the solution, but if you're using a spotlight or some other secondary battery-powered unit, the odds are it is both inconvenient and less than effective. The folks at Light & Motion are addressing that issue with their new Sidekick light, a rectangular LED light that is design specifically for mounting next to a GoPro camera to function as a complementary flash.

Marriott teams with GoPro to offer guests HERO4 cameras

Marriott teams with GoPro to offer guests HERO4 cameras

No vacation is complete without a camera to record every moment of it, and as such Marriott and GoPro have teamed up to provide guests at select hotels a complimentary HERO4 action cam. This'll benefit guests in obvious ways -- they'll have access to a rugged camera able to handle rough environments, and it'll serve as a way for GoPro to get its tiny action cameras into consumer hands. Marriott, on the other hand, might find a bit of favor in consumer eyes again following it ill-fated WiFi-blocking petition.
