GoPro Introduces Fusion | New Spherical VR Camera Coming Fall 2017

Published

on

Today GoPro made a press release announcing a new VR spherical camera called Fusion. Nick Woodman first talked about this new VR camera earlier this year at CES and now have released more details of this impressive new camera. The GoPro Fusion will be capable of capturing 5.2K resolution videos at 30 FPS and photos in both VR and non-VR making it extremely flexible.

The press release went on to compare the GoPro Fusion to using 6 GoPros at once and being able to capture every angle and then later easily extract linear videos and photos without having to worry about lining up your camera to make sure you have the perfect shot. The videos can be shared as 360 VR videos or you can choose your composition later on in editing something GoPro is referring to as OverCapture or Reframing. Some exciting times are coming for GoPro enthusiasts. What isn’t really clear is if there will be a tradition GoPro Hero 6 released alongside the new GoPro Fusion. The release date for the GoPro Fusion is fall 2017.

GoPro has released a teaser trailer on its YouTube page showing off some of the Fusions new 360 capabilities.

 

This image is being used to announce the GoPro Fusion. Wheather this is just a prototype design or is how it will look when released is unclear at this time. On a side note I really hope they make this VR camera compatible with the GoPro Karma Drone, can you imagine the incredible footage that could be captured.

New Leaks Of The DJI Phantom 5

Published

Some new leaked photos of the forthcoming Phantom 5 from DJI surfaced this week. In these leaks, it once again shows a removable camera and shell that is of a black finish. One curious observation is that there seem to be no upward facing sensors. The Mavic 2 Series launched 3 weeks ago and even they had an upward facing sensor. This could very well be just a prototype for testing purposes. Now the big question is when will we see the DJI Phantom 5 released. Personally myself I don’t think it will be until spring 2019 but many believe we will see it this year before the holiday season. I also feel this will be the last Phantom series we will see before DJI retires it permanently. With the Mavic 2 Pro and its powerful new camera, it could easily fill the spot with a version 3 release, plus have the benefit of folding up for travel.

GoPro Hero 7 Leaks & Rumors Roundup | Release Date and Specs

Published

on

So there have been many leaks and rumors of the upcoming GoPro Hero 7 lineup over the last week. Let’s do a bit of a round up putting all the information and specs that have been floating around.

Release date: Pre-order starting September 20 camera releases September 28

GoPro will release three models near the end of September 2018. They will include a Hero 7 Black, Hero 7 Silver & Hero 7 White.

GoPro Hero 7 Black Specs
-Same frame rates and resolutions as Hero 6 Black
-New “hyper smooth” Stabilization
-Live streaming to Social Media
-Portrait mode
-HDR photos with proper 3 bracket photos
-15/30 second looping clips
-Scene / smile recognition
-Photo timer

Same shape and form factor as the Hero 6 and will use the same battery. Will cost $399

The silver and white versions will cost 199 and 299 and will have limited functionality.

Should see some new hardware/accessories Launched a long side. I’m hoping for a revamped Remo remote with built-in Bluetooth microphone. That is based on a patent filing, fingers crossed.

I assume that it will be compatible with the karma drone which in turn should make it compatible with the karma drone that is just my guess. After all just a simple firmware upgrade. Don’t let us down GoPro

Keep in mind that none of this is official until GoPro makes their announcement should be within two to three weeks.

As we get closer to a release and information becomes clearer and more firm I will update it via my Facebook page.
