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 $299.95 version of the Hero, but it has Wi-Fi and has significantly upgraded shooting modes.

Putting A GoPro On Your Motorcycle Helmet Is Illegal In Victoria And NSW

After being handed a $289 fine for attaching a GoPro to his motorcycle helmet, Victorian motorcyclist Max Lichtenbaum decided to challenge the decision — and lost. This decision effectively bans riders in Victoria from attaching cameras to their helmets by any means, with similar laws in NSW already being acted upon by police. So why is a little camera such a big deal?

What It's Like To Get Attacked By A Crocodile And Then See Inside Its Mouth

Man. These crocs come out of nowhere and attack with such a quickness that you don’t even know what’s happening until you’re already clamped down inside the terrifying and unrelenting jaws of the crocodile. National Geographic made some flotation devices that held cameras to capture exactly what it’s like to get attacked and be inside a crocodile’s mouth.

The Exo GP-1 Turns Your GoPro Hero Into A Mini Leica

So many people these days carry their GoPros around with them on holiday — walk around Sydney’s Circular Quay, near the Gizmodo office, and you’ll see them on selfie sticks, on little waterproof handles, and in holidaymakers’ hands, using them as compact wide-angle cameras. But they’re a little small and unwieldy to snap photos with; the Exo GP-1 wants to change that with a custom housing that includes a shutter button, viewfinder and cold-shoe accessory mount.

GoPro Falls Off Drone And Into Burning Man Rave, Loathing Ensues

A maybe fake video of a GoPro tumbling off of a drone and landing on the main dance floor at Burning Man has emerged. It is now a perfect testament to what makes those three things — GoPros, drones, Burning Man — so annoying.

GoPro's $21K Google-Powered Camera Is The Next Best Thing To Teleportation

This year, the most amazing thing I saw at Google’s annual developer conference wasn’t a phone, a tablet, or even a head-mounted display. It was a 360-degree 3D video that took me to Japan. Now, filmmakers can spend $US15,000 ($21,300 AUD) on the tech that made it possible: the GoPro Odyssey. It’s one heck of a camera.

Watch GoPro's Crazy 360-Degree Odyssey Spherical Camera Rig In Action

Google is pushing heavily into the world of 360-degree photos and videos — Google Street View now has its own iOS and Android app, and YouTube’s virtual reality support is developing in leaps and bounds. To get enough 360-degree video content out there, though, you have to have the appropriate tools in the hands of the appropriate people. The GoPro Odyssey is a 16-Hero camera rig that shortcuts the multi-camera process of capturing the immersive video format, and if you have a large enough chequebook you can sign up to own one yourself.

GoPro Just Made It Way Easier To Share Your Epic Moments

If you do something rad, but you don’t share a video of it instantly on at least three social media channels, it probably didn’t happen. Thankfully, the world’s leading purveyor of radness-capturing cameras has just made the whole process a lot easier.

This Drone Goes From Canister To Aerial Selfie In 20 Seconds Flat

What if you could pull a giant Pringles can out of your backpack, and turn it into an incredibly safe, easy to fly camera drone in practically no time at all? I just described the Fotokite Phi — one of the coolest quadcopters I’ve ever tried.

A Drone Hovering In Place Took These Perfect Timelapses Of Earth's Surface

Most of us have grown jaded to the lovely high-res video that drones deliver these days, which is so ubiquitous that it’s being used to recruit pledges to Greek life. Here’s something to restore your sense of wonder.
