Remote controlled aerial drones are becoming somewhat ‘commonplace’ with photographers and videographers more and more. On the BBC tech show ‘Click‘, host Spencer Kelly show us something that now takes place in the French Alps and is akin to the Pod-Racing in the Star Wars movies without the crashes and the injuries but with all the drama.
Is this the future of Photoshop and other Adobe products?
The goliath that is Adobe has released a video of what they believe the future of their products may look like. Is this the future of Photoshop, Illustrator and Premiere? Suffice to say, I would not be writing a post about this unless I thought it worthy. Oh boy, is it worthy.
If Adobe managed to bring a fraction of what is contained in the video to life, I would be ecstatic! It really is the stuff of science fiction. This is the kind of thing you might currently only see in movies set in the future. It is the stuff of wizardry and sorcery but I have no doubt, that at the rate technology is advancing, we will see some, if not all, of these things on a tablet near you soon.
Take a look and be amazed. Needless to say, I want all of them NOW!
GoPro HERO4 is here! And it’s the first to shoot 4k at 30 FPS!
Firstly the glorious specifications, that are important:
4K Up to 30fps
720p 120fps (PetaPixel is reporting that it won’t do 240fps)
Ultra Wide, Medium, and Narrow Settings for Lens
Manual controls for ISO, Exposure, Color
Built-in WiFi and Bluetooth
Mark key moments in footage for later
4K Up to 15fps
12MP Photos at 30fps
It seems the rest of the features will match the Black Edition (unclear on manual controls but I would expect it to have them as well)
Is it just me or is all that stuff in something so small not just mind-blowing? Anyway, supposedly available in both silver and black, the camera is purportedly going on sale at the beginning of October. Around the 8th we here! Nobody knows how much as yet.
The GoPro has come along way since its first model. Perhaps not in appearance but most definitely in specs. Apparently all the ‘old’ accessories that you may have or may have thought about buying will fit the new GoPro Hero 4. Thats a relief for people like me who has any number of clamps and suction cups and grips and other bits and bobs.
