Product Review: Top 5 Reasons to GoPro [GoPro Cameras]

by Sierra Murphy

Wheel Secrets: Picking the proper hardness (durometer) for longboard wheels [Longboarding]

by BC Admin

Adam Colton Orangatang Wheel

We’ve all seen the durometer ratings on longboard wheels. Rated on a scale with “A” as the measurement, we’re all pretty much aware that the smaller the number, the softer the wheel. Softer wheels have more traction, easier flex (into cone patterns) and inevitably wear down quicker, being prone to flat spots and the like. Going a bit more in-depth than this, Troy Churchill and Concrete Wave have recently published a series of articles on what exactly makes a great longboard wheel and what you should look for when purchasing.  Continue Reading for more: Read the rest of this entry »

New Product Announcement: GoPro 3D Hero System [GoPro Cameras]

by BC Admin

“GoPro Launches 3D HERO® System; World’s Smallest 1080p 3D Camera.”

GoPro has recently announced the 3D HERO System, a waterproof 3D for their line of compact 1080p cameras.  The new system allows users to combine two cameras into one housing unit, capturing depth and texture that is later edited together with GoPro CineForm Software.  This takes the personal filming game to a whole new level, allowing snowboarders, mountain bikers, surfers, party-goers, etc. to create real depth in their footage.
“The 3D HERO System is exciting for a lot of reasons, one of them being that it’s not just a 3D camera. It’s really several cameras in one, depending on how the consumer wants to use it,” says Nicholas Woodman, GoPro’s founder and CEO. “That you can take two GoPro cameras that you would normally use independently and combined them to form a new type of camera, a 3D camera…that’s extremely cool. GoPro is excited to be the first company to build a camera this versatile.”
More information to come from GoPro, but for now, the GoPro 3D Hero System includes:
  • * 3D HERO Waterproof Housing
  • * 3D HERO Synchronization Cable
  • * Skeleton Door (allows for optimal sound capture in dry environments)
  • * 3 Pairs of 3D Anaglyph (Red/Blue) Glasses
  • * Helmet Front Mount
  • * 2 Flat and 2 Curved Adhesive Mounts
  • * Free Download: GoPro CineForm Studio 3D editing software
