After continuous postponements, the GoPro remote is available.
You won't get just the remote but also the WiFi BacPac (Receiver - Transmitter) that enables communication between your remote controller and your GoPro HD Hero 2 or GoPro HD.
So now you can control your camera remotely without sticking your nose in front of the lens while filming. :-) Mount the remote on your wrist and you're good to go.
Well, they also promised a smartphone and tablet app that will enable you to:
- control your HD Hero just as you do it with the remote
- live preview and playback footage and pictures from your camera (sweeeet!)
- wireless transfer media from your cam onto your phone or table (no cable, yey!)
- live stream your smartphone as a hotspot (not sure what that means...)
- and live web streaming of videos and photos (I think I know what this means)
The underwater blurred image (out of focus) was an issue which the guys at Eye of Mine fixed it with thier flat lens housing. But GoPro had to step up and designed their own diving housing.
Here's what Tom Guilmette has to say about this new underwater case:
Get creative and shoot
Okay. The gear is no longer a problem. All you have to do now is shoot and edit your GoPro videos.
And if handheld is not enough, build a DIY stabilizer for your GoPro and maybe a slider as well.
Shoot your outdoor adventures and more. The most versatile video camera just got better.
