GoPro Hero 11 Black Mini: release date, specs and our early thoughts

The GoPro Hero 11 Black Mini is a small action camera made for mounting, particularly on bike and motorbike helmets.  This is a classic use case for GoPro’s action cameras, but they’e arguably become less well suited for this very scenario over the last few generations. Sure, image quality, stabilization and performance have improved, but these cameras also got a whole lot bigger in 2020 with the GoPro Hero 9 Black.  They’ve become a little bulky, and the GoPro Hero 11 Black Mini is here to bring back a dinky…

Sony FX30 leaks, rumors and what we want to see

Sony is known for being one of the biggest producers of cinema cameras, providing cameras to the likes of Hollywood, agencies, and solo filmmakers. It’s already produced fan favorites including the compact-but-mighty Sony FX3 – and now it seems a more affordable version of that camera could be en route. If you’re a filmmaker who was priced out the Sony FX3 (which cost $3,899 / £4,200 at launch), this could be very good news indeed. The FX3 is a compact full-frame cinema camera that combines the build of the Sony’s…

This mini Instax printer brings me the joy of instant photography without the pain

Every couple of months, I’ll find myself on Amazon.com agonizing over the pros and cons of purchasing an instant camera. My latest instant-cam fantasies have been revolving around the Polaroid Now+, one of the best instant cameras we’ve reviewed. Its iconic design makes it look like a modern version of a retro snapper, and it comes with mod cons like an accompanying smartphone app that opens up new creative possibilities for your pictures. But at $150 / £139 for the camera and roughly $2 / £2 per shot, it’s just…

The iPhone 14’s new Action Mode is still a step behind the GoPro Hero 11 Black

GoPro is used to fighting the likes of DJI and Insta360 in a Squid Game-style battle for action cam supremacy, but this year, an unexpected contender entered the fray: Apple. This week we saw the arrival of the highly-anticipated GoPro Hero 11 Black, a direct successor to what is, for us, the best action camera you can buy. But just a week earlier, Apple heckled GoPro by launching its iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro smartphones with a shiny new video feature called Action Mode. The feature is effectively Apple’s…

From the Canon EOS R7 to the Panasonic Lumix GH6, we’ve seen the arrival of some brilliant mirrorless cameras this year. And today we’re expecting to add another one to that list: the Fujifilm X-H2.

Insta360 X3 could be the world’s most versatile camera

Insta360 has made some of the most fun and interesting cameras of the past few years – and the new Insta360 X3 is no different. In fact, it might just be the most versatile action cam (or camera) you can buy right now. Like its Insta360 One X2 predecessor, the X3 is a 360-degree camera with two super-wide lenses that capture everything around you, allowing you to ‘reframe’ the footage into a standard movie later. But a host of upgrades mean it’s also now much more usable as a traditional…
