Action Packed 360 Degree 4K Video on a Budget

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

EyeMirrorThere is nothing like the popular GoPro camera to get right in the middle of the action. This adapter from EyeMirror adds a full 360 degree view, and features a totally sealed enclosure so that the mirror never gets wet (tested to over 100 feet). The camera shoots at 4K, 24 Frames per second in a package that’s fully qualified for underwater adventure, and then the software translates it to a web page viewer that allows the reader to direct the view of the video to any point in the field of view. The system is not only usable for outdoor videography, but there are security applications where a 360 degree surveillance field is of interest. The camera is $800, significantly less than other solutions – and it can be attached to conventional cameras and DSLR’s for photography on land. TPN Interview by Andy McCaskey, SDRNews

Mobile Mounts from Panavise

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

PanaviseLogoAny electronics technician will immediately recognize the name and quality of Panavise – the standard for precision vises, circuit board holders, work holding tools – the essential “third hand” for delicate tasks. It turns out that they also design and manufacture mobile electronic mounts for smartphones, GPS units, and mobile video screens. Other consumer and pro grade components include CCTV cameras and home theater components.

The system is designed for flexibility and adapts to wide format smartphones like the Galaxy Note, but is also adjustable for the much narrower iPhone 5.

We also took a look at the mount for the GoPro camera Рallowing mounting on the exterior of vehicles Рsay at hubcap level Рfor exciting action shots that had not been available before. TPN Interview by Andy McCaskey, SDRNews and Daniel J. Lewis, The Audacity To Podcast.

R360UND Brings Science and Data to Your Action Shots

Thursday, February 7th, 2013

Action cameras have been one of the latest crazes at CES. From GoPro to one of our favorites, Liquid Image’s Apex HD, the cameras have gotten better, have added Wi-Fi and can really take a beating. But something is lacking from those gadgets once you capture that stunt or trick – the data. Not the video itself, but the science behind the video, like the acceleration rate or G-force the rider got from that last jump. Well, R360UND (pronounced “rebound”) looks to give you all of that with a sensor device that captures anything you’d ever want to know about that successful (or not so successful) backflip you just pulled off. It can read altitude, location, acceleration, G-force and more. You can then take that data and lay it over the video itself or, if it was a failed trick, look at the data to see where exactly the problem lied. So before you jump onto the ski lift and hit Devil’s Curve in Aspen, be sure to check out this video.
