The Sony RX0 is a new category camera for Sony’s growing 1″ sensor format line-up. While the RX0 shares a familiar 20MP 1″ sensor with the likes of other RX-series cameras, it isn’t quite designed as a natural progression of the RX line. [Read more…]
The iOgrapher started as a way to turn the iPad into a more professional video capturing device. It worked and the company has since produced variations for several other iOS devices. It’s a relatively affordable (by iOS and video production standards) mount/grip/rig for the iPhone and iPad and now the company is launching the iOgrapher GO for use with GoPro and other action cameras.

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.
