Want to see first hand how good and intelligent the GoPro HERO 7’s stabilisation algorithm is? I accidentally found out when I was in my birth town, driving. I happened to have the HERO 7 mounted on the suction cup mount and this is what I saw when I played the clip in FCXP…
The GoPro HERO 7 Black has a highly effective digital stabilisation system built-in. That is the new GoPro’s unique selling point from which also the smooth time-lapse video is derived. Other novelties include the ability to create HDR shots and a vastly better menu system.
If you record audio via an external recorder in order to replace the audio your camera captures, you’ll usually need some sort of a synchronisation tool. The simplest is using a clapper, with the second-best using Red Giant’s PluralEyes. But what if the audio your recorder captures drifts out of sync during recording? Why does that happen and how can you avoid it?
In March of 2018, the Lytro company, the makers of the first light field camera in the world, closed its doors. A large number of its employees were said to have been taken over by Google – who else? – but the company’s demise also was the end of the Lytro cameras. But why did few people buy one?
Rumour has it that GoPro’s HERO6 isn’t selling well and that’s really a pity because this is a very fine action camera. In fact, I thought the HERO5 was pretty amazing until I saw the results the HERO6 can achieve. It’s the action camera we have been craving for.
As it fits the palm of your hand and weighs 110g, you might be excused to think of the Sony RX0 as just another action camera, but that would be terribly wrong.

Sony has just launched the DSC-RX0. It offers the image quality of the Sony RX Series in a robust and ultra-compact housing. The camera offers photo and video capabilities and a waterproof, shockproof and pressure-resistant design. It can also be used in a multi-camera setup, which allows you to create photos, videos or super slow motion pictures from different angles. With a weight of 110 grams and a width of 59 mm, a height of 40.5 mm and depth of 29.8 mm, the RX0 looks like yet another premium compact camera. But this one is different.
