A couple minutes into this video, you see teenager Erynn Johns and her dad, Derrick Johns, get pulled out from the shore in a riptide. As they struggled to make it back to shore, a good samaritan swam out to Erynn and towed her to shore with her selfie stick. [Read more…]
Check out this GoPro HERO4 video of surfing personality Jamie O’Brien riding a barrel on his surf board while he is literally on fire. Because surfing wasn’t cool enough already.
If you like this kind of surf video, O’Brien has a popular web series filled with crazy, surf-inspired nonsense from Red Bull called Who is JOB 5.0.
Marques Brownlee has published his review of the GoPro HERO4 Session and addresses some important features and concerns about the new cube-shaped camera. You can see the review in the video above.
The HERO4 Session captures 1080/60p video, as well as the taller frame 1920 x 1440p video at 30fps. It can also deliver 720p video at 100 fps for roughly 4x slow motion when conformed to a 24p edit timeline.

I’m a huge fan of GoPro cameras. My most recent one is the HERO4 Silver. The LCD touchscreen was the perfect addition and it has become my go-to action camera.

Today, GoPro announced a new, ultra-compact camera, the HERO4 Session. It is a small 1.5″ cube camera that bears a striking resemblance to the Polaroid Cube. Consequently, Polaroid launched its next generation Cube+ camera today as well – although I don’t think it will be getting the same attention as GoPro’s new camera… [Read more…]
Polar Pro makes some great accessories for GoPro cameras. Along with some drone accessories, that’s really all the company makes.
The company started making filters for GoPro cameras in 2011 and has expanded to offer a full line of GoPro accessories. Over the past year or two, Polar Pro has introduced several new products that add to the functionality of GoPro cameras, including a GoPro mic, an iPhone case with a GoPro mount and GoPro camera bags with built in power supplies.
The Polar Pro PowerPole is an extendable pole for capturing action sports and other activities with your GoPro. The main difference between it and other GoPro extension poles is that it contains a 5200mAh battery inside that can give your GoPro up to 10 hours record time. (This is Polar Pro’s number but I haven’t been able to kill a GoPro on all day outings.) [Read more…]
