SidekickwBothmounts_zps3968d4c6

If you’ve used an action camera in the woods, you probably have experienced the camera struggling with rapid changes in lighting. Often cruising through areas of intense sunlight only to dip back into the dark tunnel of the woods, even as cameras improve a little extra light couldn’t hurt.

Following in the footsteps of Knog’s Qudos camera light, Light & Motion is hoping to power up their new Sidekick GoPro light. To be available in two different models, one of the Sidekicks will also be useful as a bicycle light in addition to videography. Light & Motion’s first light for the GoPro will also be their first attempt at a Kickstarter – details on why after the break…

The word epic gets tossed around quite a bit these days, but just what is epic really? It’s pretty safe to say that Darren Berrecloth’s latest adventure with friends in the Peruvian Andes would quality. Setting off with Garett Buehler, Chris Van Dine and photographer John Wellburn, the group rode in search of lost ancient ruins, an Incan road that may or may not actually exist, and completely unknown terrain – especially by bike. In nine days the crew rode or hiked somewhere around 40,000 feet of elevation.

This is one video you don’t want to miss catch the teaser, plus a few bonus clips after the jump…

Surely, we’ve all jumped on a bike and thought if only my arms were shaved I would have won. No? Well, Specialized has tested it anyways. The results? I guess if you’re really concerned about time we’ll see a lot more guys walking around with beards but otherwise hairless….

Sony Goes 4K with New Full Featured X1000V Action Cam, Full HD with New AS200V

X1000V_main2-1200

After reading about the new Action Cam Mini AZ1 from Sony, you weren’t alone in thinking their smallest camera was now their best. But as things typically go in the electronic world, the latest and greatest does last for long. Don’t get us wrong, the Action Cam Mini is still one of our favorites for its diminutive size and incredible ease of use. It’s just that thanks to Sony’s introductions at CES, the Consumer Electronics Show, the mini is no longer top dog in terms of hardware.

That distinction now belongs to the all-new FDR-X1000V. Running a bit larger than Sony’s previous full size action camera, the X1000V is the first Sony Action Cam to film in 4K resolution. Fortunately, the X1000V is more than just better resolution. Instead it brings much of the usability found in the Mini that we loved so much and more. Better sound. Better control. Basically, a better camera in all regards.

Don’t care about filming in 4K? You may still be interested in the replacement for the AS100V – the new AS200V. Yes, it’s a lot of numbers and letters, but it also means full HD capability, better image stabilization, and more control…
