Insta360 Pro lets anyone shoot their own Street View images

Insta360 Pro lets anyone shoot their own Street View images

If you've ever dreamt of driving around capturing pictures of roads and homes for Google Street View, you now have a way to do that. No, it's not a job and you won't be paid for it; in fact, it'll cost you about $3,500 to buy the Insta360 Pro camera that was just certified for the task. Think of it as a labor of love that helps beef up Google Street View, or maybe just gives you a novel way to waste a few hours.

GoPro Fusion Preview: This video shows the 360 camera’s true potential

GoPro Fusion Preview: This video shows the 360 camera’s true potential

GoPro may have launched the HERO6 action camera this week, but it's the Fusion camera which has me really intrigued. It promises 360-degree video and photo capture like other VR cameras we've seen, but justifies its $699 price tag with OverCapture, GoPro's big new software feature. That will allow you to take 1080p traditional videos from spherical footage, and as I found out when I tested it myself, it's a potential game-changer.

GoPro HERO6 first-impressions: QuikStories, 4K and stabilization

GoPro's HERO6 Black has arrived, and while it might not have the slick 360-degree features of the GoPro Fusion, 4K60 support is not to be ignored. Promising better digital stabilization, more involving colors and broader dynamic range, and a handy touch zoom, not to mention swifter wireless, you get a lot for your $499. I put on a helmet and got temporarily EXTREME to see how it holds up.

GoPro Fusion official: Slick software makes a 360 must-have

GoPro's Fusion spherical camera has finally launched, the company's latest action camera packing 5.2K resolution. Announced back in April, the Fusion clearly looks like a relation to GoPro's HERO cameras - including the HERO6 Black also announced today - but it has a far broader field of view. In fact, it captures a full 360-degrees, though you don't have to keep the footage that way.

Kodak aims to make on-the-go 360-degree video recording simple and available to anyone via its new Orbit360, a 4K camera under its PixPro product lineup. This camera is, like action cameras before it, durable enough to handle less-than-gentle outdoor usage, as well as compact enough to easily transport. Despite this, it creates fully spherical videos for use with VR.

The Villainess motorcycle fight scene: Here’s how they did it

The Villainess motorcycle fight scene: Here’s how they did it

Over the weekend I had a look at a trailer/clip from the movie "The Villainess", AKA "AK-NYEO". This clip featured a motorcycle chase and fight that seems to feature camera work that was beyond the skill of the average human being. Without a frame-by-frame examination of this clip, it seemed like either a ghost caught hold of a camera, or someone had drone skills that bordered on superhuman.
