The GoPro HERO2 action camera has become quite popular in the world of sports television.
In April when GoPro announced 35Mbit & the implementation of a Technicolor Gamma Curve they got our attention.
Today GoPro announced the WIFI BacPac™ + Wi-Fi Remote Combo. Their ad (seen above) looks pretty impressive to me. $99 will turn your iPhone (or other smartphone) into a remote monitor that’s good for up to 180m range and can connect to up to 50 GoPro’s.
This is intriguing not only because you can monitor & control your GoPro’s at a very reasonable price, but also because it opens up new possibilities of filmmaking and makes the GoPro even more versatile.
This can be used to monitor a quad-copter rig for example or control & monitor the camera at any other inconvenient location.
The GoPro WIFI combo can be ordered here [UPDATE:] now (limited quantity):
The GoPro HERO2 Technicolor ProTune firmware update is said to come soon. We’ll keep you posted.
Pomfort’s plugin for Final Cut that converts your logarhitmic Technicolor footage to linear was updated and now also works with Final Cut Pro X.
“The new Final Cut Pro X has a new filter architecture: Filters are exchanged between Motion and Final Cut Pro X as filter templates. The installer for our DSLRLog2Video puts everything right in place so that you can start with preset filter templates in Final Cut Pro X even without Motion installed.”
You can download the plugin for free because it is still in it’s beta state, but your license will expire on September 9th, 2011 and there is no word of pricing yet.
Download the free beta here.
