GoPro Fusion and the GoPro Handler



So I have been asked several times if the GoPro Handler will float the GoPro Fusion and the simple answer is yes it will. Now the long answers is “depends on which version”. GoPro introduced a new updated version of “The Handler” GoPro’s floating hand grip in September during the Fusion / Hero 6 Black launch event. This new updated version of the handler is larger and now uses a buckle mount instead of having its own built-in prongs. This new beefier version will support the weight of the GoPro Fusion.

However the old version of the Handler WILL NOT. So it’s very important to make sure you are using the updated Handler and not the old one, as your Fusion will sink if accidentally dropped in water. Also be careful of third-party floating hand grips as not all are created equal. It’s good practice to test your floating hand grip, even in bath tub before heading out to the lake.

Latest Rylo 360 Camera Firmware Update: Remote, Timer and 180 Degree Mode



In this video we go over some of the new features that Rylo introduced with their latest firmware update for the Rylo 360 camera. Some long overdue features were added and to me the most important one was a photo timer. Up until now there was no way to set a timer which is so important when taking 360 photos. A timer allows you to compose your shot. It gives you time to extend your extension pole if needed and even get out of the shot altogether if mounted on a tripod and you are taking landscape photos. The new firmware update also adds a feature that turns you phone into a remote so you can stop/start recording from a distance or take snap shots. Another interesting feature they included is a new 180 degree mode. This essentially turns off one of the lenses and is ideal for those who mount the Rylo in a chest harness style mount. One lens is covered anyways so why record from it. Some great new updates from Rylo.

New FlowState Update For The Insta360 One



So Insta360 has done something incredible that has just turned the Insta360 One camera into a whole new device. Last week Insta360 released a new update for Insta360 One version 3.0 for the iPhone app and a new firmware update for the camera itself version 2.0. This update introduced a new stabilization technology that they call FlowState and it is just amazing. I have done many test with the new update and I would almost go as far as to call it magic. Even with the camera moving quite dramatically the software was able to stabilize it and make it look nice and smooth.

The new Insta360 update also introduced new editing features such as PivotPoints and SmartTracking. With these new editing features you are able to create smooth videos and re-position the view-point to any angle you so wish.. The points that are created on the timeline can be edited if you wish to make changes which is a very welcome feature. Once you have your points of interested selected you can export the video as a traditional 16×9 video. The smart tracking feature will keep a subject or object in the main viewing area even if the camera is moving. They have also added some new split screen views so you can get a feel of what is happening from both lenses.

This new technology is allowing photographers and cinematographers to capture footage and shots that were not even possible a year or two ago. The Insta360 one is a great alternative to the traditional action camera such as a GoPro. You don’t have to worry about lining up your shots and the footage is just as smooth or if not smother that if you have an action camera mounted in a mechanical gimbal. The real benefit is you can stabilize your shots doing activities that you just cant use a gimbal. Try doing cartwheels with a gimbal…it just doesn’t work, now try it with the Insta360 One and be amazed. One area that really needs to be improved however is the resolution! Most 360 cameras don’t have the sharpest image, but am sure that will improve with time.
