Because GoPro’s camera weren’t small enough already, the company has decided to shrink its product once again with the GoPro Hero4 Session. It’s 50% smaller and 40% lighter than the flagship Hero4 Black and Silver cameras, but still maintains the high image quality and performance you expect from a GoPro device.
These days, if you’re looking to capture some extreme sports action, whether it be Base Jumping or even surfing, you’d be hard pressed to find a better solution than a GoPro camera. Indeed, GoPro cameras are seemingly everywhere these days, even showing up during yesterday’s Google I/O presentation in the form of a virtual reality rig comprised of 16 GoPro cameras.
So while GoPro gets the job done today, what did the adventure seekers of yore do to capture their death defying and adrenaline pumping feats of grandeur? Well, they worked with the tools they had at the time and opted to attach bulky and unwieldy cameras to their helmets.
Virtual reality was one of Google’s most interesting Google I/O 2015 topics, as the company took its VR game to a whole new level. In addition to detailing its VR plans on stage, the company also helped various filmmakers use the new Jump technology to create some immersive videos that look absolutely incredible. More →
Google on Thursday unveiled a variety of interesting new products and initiatives at Google I/O 2015, including Android M, Google Now, Google Photos, which will be available to users in the near future. But the company also took the wraps off its new major virtual reality plans, revealing a secret weapon that will help it offer users amazing immersive VR experiences.
Let’s face it: Most people who buy GoPro cameras probably aren’t leading the exciting lives that we see in GoPro’s promotional videos. YouTube user Braziliandanny recently wore his GoPro all day while doing his incredibly boring office job and made a hilarious compilation video that shows just how boring day-to-day existence can really be.

The versatile GoPro camera never ceases to amaze us, as the tiny gadget lets users capture all sorts of interesting moments that might otherwise go unrecorded. We have already seen some impressive clips recorded with the popular gadget – check out our GoPro hub to see some of them – but we’re hardly done finding remarkable GoPro videos. Such is the case with this incredible one-hour GoPro clip recorded in outer space. More →
Skydiving is a great example of an ideal use for GoPro’s action cameras; for people who don’t care to jump out of a perfectly functional airplane themselves, GoPro footage gives them a fantastic view of what skydiving looks like from the perspective of a diver.
But as it turns out, there’s another way skydivers can capture video from 10,000 feet up that’s even more heart-pounding for viewers. More →
We recently saw a $250,000 Lamborghini Huracan crash at 200 MPH, and a second recent video showed a ridiculous 2,000-hp Lamborghini Gallardo crashing into a pond after the driver lost control. Now, it’s time for a much less depressing Lamborghini video.
Late last month, Underground Racing’s tuned twin turbo Lamborghini Gallardo set a world record for the fastest time reaching by a street car during a standing half mile, and thankfully for us, the car’s ridiculous record-smashing run was caught on video for all to enjoy. More →
We’ve shared dozens of incredible GoPro videos on BGR over the past year, but thanks to an upcoming firmware update, some of the videos we post in the future are going to be a lot more epic. Gizmodo had a chance to check out a GoPro Hero4 Black update at the Winter X Games over the weekend — an update which allows the Hero4 Black to film at 240 frames per second in 720p resolution.

GoPro videos never cease to amaze us and this latest one looks like it could have come straight from National Geographic. In reality, though, this video was created when a GoPro 3+ Black Edition owner strapped the camera to a remote-controlled plane that he tried to fly over the ocean, only to see it crash into the water.

GoPro shares fell dramatically on Tuesday, apparently following news that Apple has been granted a patent that largely describes a sports camera system that’s similar to the very popular GoPro cameras. While investors were apparently quick to sell GoPro shares on the news that Apple is thinking about such technology, chances are the iPhone maker won’t kill GoPro anytime soon. More →
The best thing about the GoPro camera is that it lets us explore scenarios we’d never have the opportunity to explore in real life. Either that, or we’d be far too frightened to put ourselves in those situations in the first place.
In this video from YouTube user Ben Wilson, entitled “Inside the Inferno,” you see a terrifying forest fire from the perspective of a firefighter as he and his squad attempt to extinguish it. More →
