GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition and Hang Gliding

Cameras

The GoPro family have products have been hugely popular among hang glider pilots the world over.  The light weight makes mounting the camera around the glider a breeze.  Because hang gliders are controlled by weight shift, mounting a camera on one side usually requires adding equal weight to the opposite side, to keep the wing balanced.  The lightweight GoPro’s don’t require any counter-weighting.  The other feature of the GoPro that has led to it’s...Read More

GoPro Hero 3 Black 2.7K 24fps Cine Test With Leah Petersen Stunt Motorcyclist. 4K & 2.7K Downloads

Cameras

The strongest attribute of the new GoPro Hero 3 Black is the 2.7K 24fps Protune Cine mode. Chris Collins hooked up this shoot with Leah Petersen. We decided to stick with the 2.7K 24fps Protune rather than drop down to any other resolution. We know what 1080 x 1920 60P looks like and forget about 720 x 1280 120fps. We wanted the best resolution possible. The 4K would have been nice but I do...Read More

One thing that all three companies offer is 4K but only two offer 4K video outputs.  I mention this because I think its very important.  Codecs get better and workflows become more efficient.  Things change down the line as technology progresses.  4K resolution is...Read More

Cameras

Sony announced the new Sony F5 Cine Alta 4K cine camera. This puppy looks bad ass! It will however set you back quite a lot of dough.

The feature set is quite expansive with the optical viewfinder...Read More

Sony HDR-AS15 Action Cam POV Test 120 fps. Gaff Taped To A Boxing Glove.

Cameras

Here is a little test video with the new Sony HDR-AS15 Action Cam. The idea was to gaff tape the camera to a boxing glove to get direct contact POV shots at 120 fps. The headband mount worked great for the reverse angle. The Sony Action Cam held up just OK for interior shots. Even though it felt like we had enough light we needed tons more. It works great for its intended use,...Read More
