Slopes for GoPro Gives You The Angle You’re Looking For


Slopes for GoPro is a cool little stand that gives you exactly what its name implies: a panoply of slopes with which to angle your GoPro for the best possible shot.

“SLOPES” is the world’s first polyhedron support for Gopro. Thanks for its polyhedron bottom and 3-in-1 slot, “SLOPES” provides 20 different ways to put your Gopro, with a body even smaller than a Gopro housing. No tripod is needed any longer.

It’s a really handy trick up the sleeve of any aspiring action cam enthusiast, and at $21 is cheap enough to toss in a bag and carry around with you everywhere. Funding is complete, and Slopes should ship in December of this year.

Aetho Aeon Steadycam Will Make Your GoPro Videos As Smooth As Butter


Everyone and the mailman is taking action videos these days. One thing most of them have in common however is how shaky they tend to be. The Aetho Aeon aims to fix that by providing you with a fairly high-tech stabilizer for your GoPro. It features a 3-axis gimbal powered by brushless motors, a 32 bit Cortex processor, and an accelerometer making 1,000 measurements per second, which all combine to keep the camera completely steady. There’s a viewfinder LCD and a joystick to help you point the camera right where you want it, as well as an accessory mount. The battery is good for 5 hours of use on a 2 hour charge, and the kit weighs all of 1.1lbs (500g).

It’s a pretty fancy way to stabilize your videos, and considering the amount of tech, we’re surprised the asking price is only a $349 pledge to their fully-funded IndieGogo campaign, with shipping in Q1 2016.

Underwater Mask With Integrated GoPro Mount


It’s very often not until you actually have to do something that you realize just how hard it is to accomplish. Like… how often have you thought about how complicated it could be to get a decent HD-POV video underwater? Like, where will you attach your GoPro, at least for a reasonable amount of money? Thanko Japan often has answers to these kinds of questions, and in this case doesn’t disappoint with the $49 GoPro Underwater Mask. As you can tell, it’s a simple mask for tasks like snorkelling, and comes with a standard GoPro mount, which will work with any version from the Hero2 onwards. It sure beats holding the cam in one hand and trying to swim with the other.

Beyond Awesome: Roller Coaster Planet Through the Lens of Six GoPro Cameras

To say that the things you can do with a GoPro is limitless is no exaggeration. It’s the world’s most versatile camera, used by amateurs, hobbyists, professionals, and everyone else in between. In case you’ve been living under a rock and have no idea what a GoPro is, well, it’s a waterproof and shockproof HD video camera that’s compact and comes with a wide variety of mounts for added versatility.

The clip above, dubbed as LittlePlanet RollerCoaster, is an example of the awesomeness that you can achieve with the GoPro–well, six of them, actually, and video editing software VideoStitch. Mounted on strategic areas, the resulting video turns the roller coaster into its very own planet, taking you along on a very scenic and exhilarating ride. If this doesn’t inspire you to go out there and shoot something artistic, then I don’t know what will.

The Only Thing Better Than Shooting With A GoPro Is Shooting With Two GoPros


More is better, as they say, and this seems to apply to GoPros just as well as pretty much anything else. The Dual HERO System is a waterproof housing that lets you use two of the popular HD actioncams simultaneously. You can set one to record video while the other takes pictures, or have them both take video and convert it to 3D later on with some free software. The included sync cable means you only have to control one interface for both cameras, and the entire thing is waterproof up to 197 feet, or 60 meters. It’s $200.

Do Want – Collapsible Video Stabilizer for Any Smart Phone, and GoPro Cameras [Updated]

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 9.36.58 PM

Recording hand-held video with your cell phone while trying to maintain a smooth and steady shot can sometimes be challenging. And if you’ve ever tried doing GoPro videos using only your hands – you know how tough it can be to avoid jittery video.

A new video stabilizer called the StayblCam aims to solve those problems once and for all. It takes away the hassle and ‘clunkiness’ often associated with existing stabilizers and adds a new twist – a collapsible telescope design that the developer claims will produce very steady video for your iPhone or compact camera, even at ground level. This might be as close as you will get to having a steadicam for your GoPro (or iPhone for that matter), without worrying about counterbalancing weights or adjusting any screws or rails.

The StayblCam looks like it could become a hit among vloggers, amateur videographers, or even just the average guy or gal like you and me – looking for ways to improve their video quality on a budget. We’re told the StayblCam will be going into production in the not too distant future, for an undisclosed price.
