Red Bull is known for its clever advertising and incredible collection of sponsored adrenaline junkies. So, to make the most of both of these assets, the company recently decided to pair up with wind surfer Jason Polakow to create one of the most intense and immersive ‘tiny planet’ videos you’ve probably ever seen.

Red Bull Raises the Extreme Video Bar with Interactive 3rd Person 360º Little Planet Wind Surfing Video
GoPros exist to take quite a beating… they are action cams after all. However, as much as GoPro might put its products through the wringer to test them and ensure they’re up for anything, it’s unlikely they expect one to survive what the one in the above video did.
The functioning camera managed to survive in a riverbed for 17 months! And not only did it survive, the footage of the camera’s final moments was still safe and sound on the memory card inside.
One of the biggest weaknesses of mobile cameras is shooting in low-light. The sensor can’t usually handle it very well, and the built-in light sources are usually… well… crap. Here to help with that is Lume Cube, a product currently being funded on Kickstarter that hopes to quite literally light up your smartphone and GoPro imagery. Read more…
Jim Grimaldi lives in West Seneca, NY, a suburb of Buffalo that was hit hard by the massive snowstorm that has left many people trapped inside their homes surrounded by 5+ feet of snow. And while a blizzard might not seem like the ideal time to take your DJI Phantom drone out for a spin, that’s exactly what Grimaldi chose to do.
In the process he captured the 4K video above, which gives you an idea of the conditions in Buffalo from inside the storm on Tuesday, when snow was falling at about 4-inches per hour according to the Washington Post.

Have you ever bought a GoPro just to realize that your life might not be quite as extreme as you initially thought? We’ve seen it before, and that’s exactly what happened recently with Instructables user Brooklyntonia.
But rather than watching her GoPro Hero 3 collect dust on a shelf, she decided to create an unlikely pair by Frankensteining together her unused GoPro and an old AGFA Ansco Shur Shot she had lying around. Read more…
GoPros are wonderful little devices that can capture hour after hour of adventurous endeavors (or mundane experiences…). Those hours add up though, and not all of us have time to meticulously edit together a final result to share with the world.
The Antix app thinks it can solve this problem by using artificial intelligence to automatically compile your GoPro footage and edit it into a complete highlight video… all without you having to do much of anything at all.
If this doesn’t put a big fat smile on your face, we’re not sure what will. As part of an experiment on ‘the phenomenon of water surface tension in microgravity,’ the astronauts of Expedition 40 managed to trap a GoPro inside a floating sphere of water.
Small cameras are becoming more powerful with each iteration, but as powerful as they are, the lack of any quality stabilization options means shaky, unprofessional looking footage no matter what resolution you’re shooting at.
Well… this is different. In an attempt to capture a unique perspective on his friends’ wedding, one guest decided to duct tape a camera to a bottle of Fireball whisky and walk around the rest of the attendees to take pulls.
What resulted was the kind of “how has nobody else ever thought of this!?” Fireball Cam perspective that will probably become a ‘thing’ at many a wedding over the next couple of months at least. Might not be a bad idea to add this to your service offerings if you’re a wedding photographer…
