GoPro HD HERO3: Black Edition

by Senior Social Media Specialist Senior Social Media Specialist on ‎11-27-2013 04:52 PM

 

Hey Action Lovers,

 

Having gotten to try the original GoPro Hero years ago, and being astonished at the quality of the footage you could get out of such a small package, I was excited to see we have the GoPro HD Hero 3 Black Edition on sale in our Black Friday ad for $249.99.Hero HD 3 black 2.jpg

 

This version of the GoPro is of course far better than the one I used way back when, and I was happy to see it is capable of shooting full 4K video footage. I foresee 4K displays being the standard sometime in the not so distant feature.

 

Hero HD 3 black.jpgI do remember the biggest drawback for me on the original model was that the controls were not quick and easy to adjust. It looks like GoPro has solved this in two separate ways for this model. This camera is Wi-Fi compatible; it can be controlled by the included Wi-Fi remote, or even better by the free app that is compatible with both Android and iOS.

 

Hero HD 3 black 3.jpgAs with any camcorder I would highly suggest investing in a backup battery, and purchasing the limited edition GoPro battery BacPac that mounts to the back of the camcorder. This camera is meant to be out in the field, and the last thing you want it to run out of juice in the middle of capturing all the action.

 

GoPro does have free video editing software named Cineform Studio, which should work fine for basic editing. If you need more than this software is capable of I would suggest looking at software with many more options like Adobe Premiere Elements.

 

 

 

Have fun!

Canon PowerShot S110

by Senior Social Media Specialist Senior Social Media Specialist on ‎11-26-2013 05:00 PM

Hey Everyone,

 

As an owner of a large DSLR with a number of heavy lenses I can say that hauling my system around can be quite a chore. Because of this I have recently been in the market for a smaller camera that produces high quality images.Canon s110.jpg

 

One camera I have looked at is the Canon PowerShot S110. I love how portable this camera is while still providing high quality results. The fact that this camera shoots in RAW is a big plus, and the lens on this camera is great.

 

At it’s current price-point you are close to the cost of an entry-level DSLR or Compact System Camera (CSC), but if portability is something you need there isn’t much better on the market. If you can find this camera on sale I would say go for it, and given the time of year I wouldn’t be surprised to see the S110 on sale.Canon s110 2.jpg

 

I did end up finding a great deal on a Sony NEX 5T CSC, as a portable option to my Canon 7D, but to be honest it is not quite as portable as I would have liked. If I hadn’t got such a great deal on the Sony I would definitely be considering the Canon S110.

 

I honestly think this is one of the best small cameras ever made. If you do end up getting this camera don’t forget to get a case for it, a backup battery, and of course a memory card.

 

Happy shopping!

Nikon Coolpix S800c

by Senior Social Media Specialist Senior Social Media Specialist ‎11-25-2013 04:45 PM - edited ‎11-26-2013 04:51 PM

 

Hey,

 

I know getting that new TV or the latest gaming console is what many shoppers find exciting, but for me I love seeing all the great deals I can find on camera equipment. Being a photographer I am not usually in the market for a camera, but I do love seeing what we have on sale.

 

One such offering, I see in this year’s Black Friday ad, is the Nikon Coolpix S800c for $129.99. This is more than half off the normal price of $349.99. Being that it is the first camera to use Android as its operating system, any android phone user should feel right at home.S800c.jpg

 

I could see this being the perfect camera for your teenager that already uses an Android phone. If your child is anything like most teenagers, once they adopt something it never gets a break. I would suggest getting a back-up battery. One of the first-thing I purchase when buying a new camera is always a second battery; there is nothing worse than running out of power with no backup.

 

A while back my aging Android smartphone started having battery problems. I would have to charge the phone like two to three times a day. I realized it was time to get a new battery for it. When looking for a new battery I realized I could merely get an external battery like the Mophie, and then I would have a backup power source for the next handset I purchase. This might be a viable alternative for cameras like this that charge their batteries via a USB port.

 

With this camera using Android as its operating system, and its Wi-Fi capability, it seems to be the perfect camera for someone that loves to share life’s great moments.

 

Have fun!
