In a surprise move GoPro have released a new even smaller camera which removes the display panel and newer 4K capable sensor from the top of the line version, halving the size and weight of the device.
Canon have a real problem in my opinion. They’re not listening to enthusiasts at all.
They claim the XC10 is an “enthusiast camera” and for aspiring filmmakers.
Actually it is a POV camcorder where you want a bit better quality than a GoPro.
Canon have revealed a little of their broad future objectives in the company’s latest annual report.
SetLife Magazine (a recommended follow on Facebook) has compiled technical specification slates showing us who shot on what when it comes to the big 2014 Oscar nominees.
Interestingly Arri cameras still sweep the board. There are also nods to the Cinema EOS cameras and even the GoPro, but the really surprising thing is not a single one of the films were shot on RED.
Thanks to low weight and small size GoPro cameras will be part of the next NASA manned space flight, possibly to Mars.

The forum is really booming at the moment. A while ago on the site I decided to redirect the article comments system into the forum and that has seen a big increase in the number of people using it not just to comment, but to add their own content. Some of it deserves to be given wider attention so the best posts will from now on be promoted to the front page.
I recently picked up the Hero 3 Black Edition. It’s a great overall point-of-view camera not just a favourite of sports shooters. The size of a matchbox and it does 2.7K and 4K video all at a pretty high bitrate of around 45Mbit.
Since a couple of days ago (Dec 14th) it has a new firmware update and iPhone app which gives you smooth wireless 24fps monitoring on the iPhone so I thought I’d give it a try.
As well as having the coolest name for a camera ever conceived, this is a camera that kind of makes you wonder what the Japanese camera manufacturers have been up to all this time. Although the 720/120fps mode is shared by Panasonic, the GoPro team have smashed a number of barriers here in terms of 4K / 2.7K resolution and processing power in such a small camera, for a frankly unbelievable $400.
