Sony 4K Action Cam Hands-On: Giving GoPro A Run For Its Money

It’s been a hard fight for Sony (and everyone else) who is trying to get a slice of that action camera pie GoPro is so effectively hogging. Sony has had some solid cams that offered best-in-class audio, but they have always fallen just a bit short beating GoPro on image quality and ease of use. Sony brought me out to Colorado to get some hands-on time with the company’s forthcoming flagship, the 4K Action Cam X1000V. From what I’ve seen so far, it’s very impressive.


Watch The Most Detailed Video Ever Captured

What do you do when you want to show off a 4K TV? What about 8K? You use a $50,000-plus specialised digital still camera, find yourself a beautiful setting, and spend hours upon hours capturing a time-lapse video in 10K. Then you spend just as much time editing it, to show off the full extent of the detail hidden within those images. This is possibly the most detailed and most fascinating video that has been captured by a digital sensor up until now.


Sony At CES 2015: 4K, 4K, And More 4K (Oh, And Hi-Res Audio Too)

In its big, glitzy press conference yesterday, Sony was all about the 4K. 4K camcorders, 4K action cams, 4K professional video production — for movies and TV — and, more than anything else, 4K TVs. That and super-high-quality audio, marking a continuation of the company’s big shift to make properly premium tech gadgets again.


Can 4K Make Camcorders Worth Buying Again?

Remember camcorders? They were those things you shot crappy video of your friends and family with, back before every phone and still camera on Earth gained the ability to shoot decent high-definition video. This year, they’re trying to ride 4K all the way to a comeback.


Sharp's Super Slim 4K TV Is Like Whoa Skinny

Sharp just unveiled a salvo of 4K TVs at CES, and even one that approaches near 8K resolution. One of the neat sets that enjoyed a brief sidebar during Sharp’s press conference was a TV the company is calling a “Super Slim” set because the panel is less than half-an-inch thick (not including the set mount).


Sony's New UHD TVs Will Run On Android TV

Rather than pack in ever more pixels or flex its screens, Sony is rolling out a number of technical and design tweaks aimed to make their benchmark-setting UHD televisions even better this year — and that includes a brand spankin’ new OS powered by Google.


LG At CES 2015: Quantum Dot UHD, OLED TVs And The G Flex2

Looking for a quick precis on what Korean tech giant LG is showing off this year at CES? Here’s your easy go-to guide.


Sharp's 80-Inch Beyond 4K Ultra HD TV Is Overstuffed With Pixels

What does “high definition” even mean anymore? There comes a time when words like “ultra” and crazy high pixel density just start to lose any kind of descriptive power. Sharp is making my linguistic conundrum even worse with an absolutely pixel-crammed set, called the Beyond 4K Ultra HD TV.


4K TV Throwdown, Part One: How The Sharp UD27 Stacks Up

4K is still in its infancy. Even if you’ve got the $US7,000 burning a hole in your pocket for a top-tier 4K set, I’d recommend a gorgeous 1080p OLED panel instead. But if you simply must have a 4K television, you don’t necessarily need the very best.


LG 40UB800T Ultra HD TV: Australian Review

If you have a gutsy gaming PC or even a next-gen console, or if you watch a lot of movies on Blu-ray, there’s a very real reason to buy a 4K TV. Native-resolution Ultra HD content looks amazing, but upscaling tech is getting good enough to make Full HD video look pretty damn good as well. But it’s not necessarily the most expensive and high-end 4K TVs that are interesting me most at the moment.
