One of the things we like best about GoPro’s Hero Action Cameras is that there seems to be no end to their applications and to the truly unique and extraordinary shots that you can capture with them.  All you need is a little imagination. The video above, Marc Donahue of Perma Grin Films shows off some of the coolest uses of a GoPro Hero (or I should say – GoPro Heroes) that we’ve seen in quite some time. For the first effect, Marc uses an array of GoPro Hero cameras mounted on (at least) two DIY rigs – a small rig [More]
Since the release of the GoPro Hero3 Cameras last fall, one of the biggest questions that fans of the GoPro action camera lineup has been this… Just what is the difference between the GoPro Hero3 Black, Silver and White Editions, and are they any better than the Hero2? The video above from eyeofmineGoProHDHero showcases the differences between the 3 Hero3 Editions and just what separates them from the previous generation, the Hero2.

Ryan Connolly and Crew get their hands on a GoPro Hero3 Action Camera and give it the Film Riot Treatment and field test it as only they can do.  The boys mount the camera in several different ways to get some interesting shots in their snack inspired short film. Although the GoPro Hero3 is smaller than it’s predecessor, the GoPro Hero2, it does represent a significant step forward in image quality and low light capabilities.  This is especially true of the GoPro Hero3 Balck Edition, which rightfully holds the flagship position in GoPro’s Hero lineup. The Black Edition stands head [More]
BMSWEB compares the GoPro Hero3 cameras with their predecessor, the Hero2.  Since many of our readers have been asking, we thought we’d add some links to a spec comparison chart of all three GoPro Hero3 Cameras >>Here<<. My 2 Cents The GoPro Hero3 Black Edition rightfully holds the flagship position in GoPro’s Hero lineup as it does stand head and shoulders above the Silver and White Editions in low light performance, resolution and additional features.  It’s important to note that although the Hero3 Black Edition technically has 4k capability, it will only record 12 fps at that level, so it’ll only [More]
GoPro is the little camera company that could.  Witness their meteoric rise from obscurity to the undisputed Kings of the POV Camera World in just a few short years. It seems that there’s nothing that can hold these little cameras back, just like the people who use them.  Case in point – Joe Stone (featured in the video above – to lean more about Joe, you can visit his blog >> joesstone.blogspot.com). In August of 2010, Joe was in a speed flying accident that left him an incomplete c7 quadriplegic. Despite his devastating accident, Joe was determined to regain his [More]
From ABC News:  Even if you’ve never heard of GoPro, you’ve definitely seen the footage it captures of extreme snowboarding shreds, death-defying leaps and epic wipeouts from impossible angles. “It continues to blow our minds that GoPro is what it is today,” said company founder Nick Woodman. For Woodman, the journey from guppy to Goliath in the camera world began on a surfboard in 2002. “The original goal for GoPro was to produce a camera that the average surfer could use to capture themselves and their friends while they were surfing.” And now, eight years after rolling out their first [More]
