The new GoPro looks amazing
It’s said to be “30% smaller, 25% lighter & 2X more powerful than previous models. New resolutions and frame rates include 4K @ 15fps, 1080 @ 60fps, and 720 @ 120fps. It also offers 12MP burst photo capture at 30 fps.” Oh, and it has built-in WiFi, for $399 (or down to $199 minus some resolutions/rates). Wild.
While much of the popular press may focus on the jump to 4K, we wanted to flag the incredible shift from being a ‘straight to YouTube’ camera to a camera that now also offers a very real alternative for those wanting to intercut GoPro footage – a pipeline that assumes there will be grading, that there will be post, and outputs from the camera in a format that lets you maximize both.
