The GoPro Max Makes Shooting 360-Degree Video Dead Simple

Two years ago, GoPro took its first stab at a 360-degree action camera with the GoPro Fusion. It wasn’t a particularly good stab. It was bulky, it required two micro SD cards, and the footage was a royal pain to work with. In the intervening years, we’ve seen decent 360 cameras from the likes of Garmin, Insta360, and Rylo, but this sub-genre of action cam hasn’t really caught on. The £480 GoPro Max hopes to change this by putting a focus on enabling creativity. Read More >>

GoPro’s Hero8 Black is Boring – and That’s What Makes It Great

No single upgrade in GoPro’s new flagship camera will surprise you. There is no “new killer feature” that sets it apart from either the competition or last year’s Hero7 Black. It doesn’t even have a built-in selfie screen (although you can buy one as a new add-on “mod.”) And yet, somehow, the Hero8 Black is the GoPro I’ve been waiting to see for years without realising it.

GoPro Gets Weird With the Hero Max 360 Camera

GoPro is giving the 360 camera thing another try, this time with the Hero Max, a dual-lens camera that the company swears is a far more user-friendly device than its previous consumer version, the GoPro Fusion. Read More >>

I Strapped GoPro’s Hero7 Black to My Dog and My Hog to See How Stable the Video Really Is

On paper at least, I’m the stereotype of a GoPro customer. I snowboard and mountain bike. I ride motorcycles and dirt bikes. I fly drones. I go on scenic hikes with my dogs. But I haven’t actually purchased an action cameras since 2014 when I picked up a Hero4 Silver. Until last week, I thought it did the job fine. Boy, was I wrong. Read More >>

GoPro Is Trying to Save Itself With a Super Cheap Camera 

It might look like the £300 GoPro Hero 5 (which is now two years old), or the £400 GoPro Hero 6 (which was released last year) but this is actually a brand new, and much cheaper GoPro. Simply called the GoPro Hero, this new £200 action camera will feature most of the best features of the Hero 5 and Hero 6, at half the cost. Read More >>

GoPro’s Hero6 Is the King of Action

GoPro has been the leader on action cameras from the very beginning, and its brand has attained a kind of Xerox-like omnipotence—despite the company’s ongoing struggles in recent years. Amongst GoPro’s problems is the difficulty in making the improvements to its line look like anything more than iterations. With its new Hero6, GoPro has juiced its top camera’s guts to make it capable of some frankly incredible slow-mo action. Whether that’s enough to make a difference, remains to be seen. Read More >>

The Best Action Cameras for Filming Your Extreme Adventures

Unable to Sell New Cameras, GoPro Wants To Buy Your Old One

GoPro needs a nice, clear-cut win. The company that makes such good action cameras it’s become nearly synonymous with the product has had a rough time. Last year, it had to lay people off and delay the release of its drone after declining sales and improved competition put a severe dent in its coffers. Then, that new drone was recalled because it kept falling out of the sky. After that, the latest iteration of the GoPro action camera was released and sales were sluggish. So, in an effort to fabricate a win, GoPro is begging people to trade in their old GoPro camera for a new one. Read More >>

This Is the First Action Camera With FLIR Thermal Imaging Built Right In

Unless you’ve dropped tens of thousands of pounds on a Hollywood-calibre drone that can hoist full-sized cameras, the carrying capacity of your hobby quadcopter is probably limited. So instead of designing a thermal imaging accessory that works alongside a GoPro, FLIR just created its own action camera that can also capture Predator-like thermal imagery from the skies.

GoPro Hero5 Review: A More Perfect Action Camera

We use a lot of GoPros here at Gizmodo. We use them to shoot timelapse battery tests for phones and 360 degree videos of multibillion dollar transit hubs and test runs of expensive cars on a dirt track. So a new GoPro action camera with a lower price tag and badass features has us pumped. We’d love for this to be the camera we choose to update our own fleet of GoPros—more on that in a second—but the Hero5 is definitely the one we’d recommend to a bike nut friend who wants to get into the action cam game.

The Hero+ is GoPro’s New Entry-Level Camera, Now With Wi-Fi

GoPro’s got itself quite a stable of little cameras these days. We already had (from high end to low end) the Hero4 Black, Hero4 Silver, Hero4 Session, Hero+LCD, and the straight up Hero. Now, squeezing in between those bottom two, comes the Hero+. It’s a $200 (UK price £170) version of the Hero, but it has Wi-Fi and has significantly upgraded shooting modes. Read More >>
