Fall is the Season for New Sports Cameras from GoPro and Polaroid

By: Todd Stabley

On October 5 GoPro is releasing a widely-anticipated version of its Hero that supports 4K at 30fps and 1080p at 120fps. You can watch some absolutely stunning footage shot with this camera on YouTube here (for best viewing, watch on YouTube, select the 4K option under Settings and full-screen it):


Additional innovations include a new nightlapse setting, better low light performance, better sound, and faster processing.

GoPro will also be offering a basic model Hero for $129.00 that will support 1080p at 30fps.

The Polaroid Cube (99$), released on 9/23/14, has retro styling and at less than 1.5 inches square is smaller than the Hero. It’s been designed with durability in mind, and like the Hero offers a waterproof case as well as handlebar mounts for bikes. It seems to target both sports and lifestyle markets, and may be something kids will want to use. It has simple controls, including a single button on top for video and stills.
