GoPro Hero composition tips

With a field of view of 170 degrees and a fish eye, the small GoPro lens can capture a huge amount. So while you might not be sure of exactly what it’s capturing, after a couple of sessions you should have a good idea.

Different ways to attach your GoPro Hero

Tweet One of the major reasons that GoPro Hero and other action cameras have become so popular is that they are so easy to mount. Not only that, but their small size means that they can be mounted almost anywhere and there’s a huge variety of mounts out there for you to choose from. If however you actually find something that doesn’t have a bespoke mount, then it’s often easy enough to either make your own or manipulate an existing mount to bend to your will. Whatever mount you choose, and whatever you attach it to, the most important...

Wasp 4K action camera review – Verdict

Tweet The Wasp 4K instantly strikes you as a camera that’s different to the main stream, and during my time with it I’ve really grown to like the way it looks and functions. At the same time there are an equal amount of features that I am a little reserved about, but ultimately this is one of the most solid performing cameras I have yet seen. First and foremost is the design, there’s really nothing sleek about the casing and the way that it looks. It looks tough and slightly industrial. In the hand the contrast between the hard...

Download and organise your GoPro Hero video

Tweet When it comes to downloading your GoPro footage the process really couldn’t be more simple. The latest models of GoPro all feature software that will automatically activate as soon as your GoPro or the MicroSD card from it is connected to a computer.

WASP 4K Action Camera – in use

Tweet The Wasp 4K is one of those cameras that you instantly take a liking too, there’s something of the outsider about it with it’s bulky almost armoured design. This design was also something that I thought would divide opinion, as there is nothing streamline or delicate about it, and although it follows the usual GoPro style and shape it is very different and lacks the finesse of other cameras. However everyone who has seen and used the Wasp 4K has liked the aesthetics, citing that the robust design looks ready for business. It also seemed those into off...

GoPro Hero5 Black voice activation demo

Tweet One of the big new features of the GoPro Hero5 Black is the voice activation, you simply speak one of a number of terms and the GoPro does as you request. Having used and been amused by Siri for a good couple of years, I was half expecting the GoPro to order me a taxi rather start recording, but annoyingly all the commands I tried (it was the full list) appeared to work. As exciting as a ten minute video of me shouting at a GoPro would inevitably be, here’s a quick abridged version! For those of you...

GoPro Hero5 sample footage

Tweet First time out with the GoPro Hero5 Black and I have to say so far the changes I’ve seen to the way the camera works are incredible. The biggest change is the ease of accessing settings with the new touch screen, flipping between 4K and 1080p really couldn’t be easier, as was swapping frame rates. The new design made little difference to how the camera attached and actually side-by-side against the Hero4 there really is little in it when it comes to size and shape. The weather today was typical late autumn, early winter with sun and clouds. So...

GoPro Hero5 Black review

Tweet The GoPro Hero5 Black has arrived, and although I’ve been able to check out the camera briefly over the last few weeks, this is the first time worried friends haven’t quickly recalled their new and prized possession. The Hero5 is a very different camera to the first four iterations of the Hero, the biggest change is of course that it loses the waterproof housing, but really side-by-side, compared to the Hero4 you can instantly see that this is a product that has grown-up. Taking a quick look through the specs you can see that actually it seems that...

How to edit your Nikon KeyMission 360 video

Tweet Once you’ve captured some KeyMission 360 footage it’s time to edit and upload to YouTube. To do this Nikon has provided an application called Nikon KeyMission 360/170 Utility that will enable you to quickly edit and export your footage ready for uploading to YouTube. Any 360 footage produced by the Nikon KeyMission 360, or for that matter any other 360 or VR camera, requires special metadata that needs to be attached so that YouTube is able to recognise the video as 360, rather than standard flat footage. For many other cameras this means that the footage, once edited, needs to...

Interview with Nikon’s Tim Carter about the KeyMission 360

Tweet Tim Carter is the Senior Product Manager – Imaging at Nikon UK. Following the Nikon KeyMission 360 launch event at the London Science Museum I had a few question’s I wanted to ask him about the Nikon’s move into the action camera market and of course about the KeyMission 360 itself. Why a 360 action camera from Nikon? Tim Carter: Nikon always like to keep at the front of imaging developments and 360 video is very cutting edge.

Veho Muvi K2Pro4K review in use

Tweet The Muvi K2 Pro 4K comes with the touch screen LCD which can be quickly attached and fixes in place securely. Although in most situations that screen is a huge benefit for navigating the settings, options and using for composition there are also times when you’ll want to remove it to save bulk and weight. The detachable nature of the screen is a nice touch and means that the camera can be used in one of two way, with or without the screen. Without the screen the camera is small and light weight and the app, available for iOS...

Unlock the full potential of the TomTom Bandit

Tweet When the TomTom Bandit originally launched it was an action camera with a difference; packed with sensors and the first camera to bring true automatic video editing without the need for a computer. TomTom also took a completely different tack when it came to new versions and upgrades compared to the competition, in as far as there hasn’t as yet been a new version.  No Bandit 2, mini, slim or otherwise just the original, instead all upgrades to date have been through firmware. These firmware updates are more than just small fixes and each version so far has...
