Comparing the Original 2004 GoPro to the Newest One Is Ridiculous, But We Did It Anyway

It’s been a wild ride for GoPro. It went from a niche camera company for surfers, to a media behemoth that was printing money, and now to a company undergoing large-scale layoffs, and publicly considering selling itself. Oof. Rather than piling on, we decided to flash back to happier times. So, I went on Amazon and bought the very first GoPro Hero camera for roughly £20, to see where it all began. 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 Loses Two-Year Battle With the Sky

First announced in December of 2015, action cam company GoPro has pulled the plug on its heavily delayed, disastrous aerial photography drone, best known for its spectacular propensity for falling out of the sky. The news comes days after a report that said the company was laying off several hundred employees, most of whom were attached to its drone flight division. 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 >>

GoPro Is Upgrading the Brains of Its Best Camera for Easier Shooting

You know the old adage, “it’s what’s on the inside that counts.” That’s just what GoPro is banking on with its new flagship camera, the £499 Hero6. Physically, it looks identical to last year’s Hero5 Black, and that’s not a bad thing. Under the hood, though, there’s a hell of a lot more power. Read More >>

Skier Captures Awesome Aerial Footage of His Stunts By Just Throwing His GoPro

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 >>

Riding a Kayak Down a Mountain in a Ditch Is Scarier Than a Rollercoaster

Watching brave kayakers navigating tumultuous whitewater rapids is terrifying enough, but Rush Sturges and Ben Marr decided they needed a more exciting way to risk their lives. So they dragged a tandem kayak up to the top of a drainage ditch in the woods, and then hopped in for a ride back down that looks more thrilling than any rollercoaster. Read More >>

Strapping a GoPro on a Sword is the Best Way to Watch a Watermelon Get Slaughtered

Mounting a GoPro onto a sword and then watching it chop the hell out of things is awesome, but it isn’t as easy as I thought. You can’t just tape a camera down on one end of the blade and hope for the best, because the shot will look all wacky. The sword moves too fast so it’s all blurry, the camera angle is capturing the wrong thing, and everything is bad. 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.
