We haven’t updated our GoPro comparison chart for some time due to the original spreadsheet being lost somewhere within the Unsponsored archives. So last night I typed the 2015 chart back into excel and have added details for the Hero (2018), Hero6, Hero5, and Hero5 Session.
After 12 years Dagger Kayaks have redesigned the Nomad. The new Nomad will be available January 2016.
UPDATE: First paddle impressions of the Nomad can be found here.
[UPDATE: GoPro have released the 5 series of POV action cameras including the Hero 5 Black Edition and the Session 5.]
We’ve known about this for a short while but couldn’t say anything – Today GoPro announced the launched the new Hero4 session. We have one here at Unsponsored for review!
Here is everything you need to know about the new 2015 GoPro Hero4 Session.
The Session marks a shift from the GoPro format that we have been used to since its first arrival many years ago. The Session is a much smaller format and is not dependent on a housing for its 10m (33ft) waterproofing. Gone are the two buttons (only one now) and in is a smart dual microphone system designed for better sound pickup in even the harshest of conditions.
The new GoPro Hero 4 was released on the 5th October 2014.
[UPDATE: GoPro have released the Hero 7 Black Edition. You can find more about it here.]
The new Hero 4 is available in two varieties the Black Edition and Silver Edition. The Hero 3+ Silver and Hero 3 White editions still form part of the range. A new lower spec Hero is also available.
The form factor of the Hero 4 remains the same as the 3 and 3+ with some slight alterations. This includes a change to the front LCD information screen that now houses the status and connection LEDs. The battery has also changed in both spec and shape!
Amy and I are considering purchasing a new kayaks and were curious about two new boats: the Liquid Logic Flying Squirrel and the Pyranha 9R. Both boats are sub-nine foot boats designed to go fast. I was especially intrigued by the looks of the 9R, and Amy was excited by the buzz about the Flying Squirrel. When Woody Callaway of Liquid Logic offered a Flying Squirrel 85 for a test run, we decided to see if we could make a complete investigation.
