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.

After several gazillion leaks over the last few days, they're finally here: GoPro's 2014 line of action cameras. As rumoured, there are in fact three models. There's the Hero, GoPro's new entry-level camera that comes in super cheap; the Hero4 Silver, which is basically last year's best action camera plus an LCD touchscreen; and last but certainly not least,there's the Hero4 Black, which seems to demolish every other action camera out there.
This is just awesome. Jim 'Pee Wee' Martin, a 93-year-old WWII veteran paratrooper, just did the same jump out of a plane into Normandy that he did for D-Day 70 years ago when he was 23 years old. But he says this jump was much easier because "there wasn't anybody shooting at me today".
This is what happens when your dad works for Dreamworks. The Creators Project recently featured Dreamworks animator Daniel Hashimoto, who turned his son James into an epic superhero, just using Adobe AfterEffects.
GoPro's slogan is "be a hero", and to unveil the latest HD Hero 3+ camera, it put together a little video shot completely on the new camera showing everything you can do with it. This is pretty goddamn impressive.
When Sony announced their Action Camera, we guessed everyone else was in deep trouble. After all, Sony makes some of the baddest, most darkness-proof image sensors out there. But images speak louder than specs. So we put this little sucker through its paces.
GoPro, known for its stellar line of helmet-attached HD cameras, is planning to release an even more affordable model, set at $US180. Engadget speculates the extreme sports cam will offer 960p recording, based on its model name, the HD Hero 960.
It appears some people are still using Plurk, that Twitter rival from a couple of years ago. HTC is one of them, with their corporate account confirming that GSM HTC Heros will be getting the Android 2.1 update today. This comes after HTC pushed the update out to CDMA Heros the other week, with Sprint customers getting lucky on May 19th.
Yesterday we brought the good news to Hero owners that Sprint was pushing out the Android 2.1 firmware update - but before you press yes on that update, make sure you back up all your data.
Sprint has gifted its HTC Hero owners the long-awaited Android 2.1 update, seven months after the first screenshots of a Hero running the faster, snazzier version showed up.
Nestled in the leaked Android 2.1 ROM, 20 new devices are mentioned by name—including those we knew of already (Dragon, Dream, Hero and Passion) but some new friends too, Bahamas, Bravo, DesireC, Espresso, Halo, HeroCT, HeroC, Huangshan, Incredible, Legend, Liberty, Memphis, Paradise, PassionC, Sapphire and Supersonic. Phew.
For the past couple of weeks, I've been playing around with the HTC Hero. The US guys reviewed it way back in July, and while I don't disagree with anything in that review, there are still a few things worth mentioning about the Android phone now that it has finally hit Australian shores.
