Pretty exciting news from GoPro this morning. The HD HERO3! They’re packing even more punch into their already amazing little camera. I like that they’re also keeping their $200.00 base price intact and tiering the products from that point. Smart thinking! For those still using the GoPro HD HERO2, they just released an amazing firmware update to improve the bit rate for video and also overall image quality.
Huge firmware update for one of my favorite tools. The GoPro HD HERO2 is always in my gear bag. But it has never shot at 24fps and the quality is less than what my Canon 7D can produce. However, the 7D is a more powerful device. Now it looks as though the GoPro is going to be able to compete big time! Protune™ to the rescue!
PROTUNE™ KEY BENEFITS INCLUDE:
- High Quality Image Capture
- Protunes’s 35Mbps data rate provides less compressed cinema quality image giving content creators more flexibility in post production.
- Neutral Color
- Protunes neutral color profile offers more flexibility during post production color correction. Protunes log curve captures more detail in shadows and highlight.
- Film/TV Frame Rate Standard
- Now record video in 24FPS and easily intercut GoPro content with other source media without needing to perform FPS conversion.
