Loupedeck, Review -

When you edit as many videos and photos as we do, for either the business or our ball players, you start looking around for ways to trim away tasks.  Most certainly, when many of those tasks contain the same sequences every time, editing consoles can really lend a hand.  For the most part, these don't do anything you can't already do with a Keyboard.  But editing consoles place functions and shortcuts in a very convenient place to perform these tasks more efficiently. When the Loupdeck CT device was announced, we knew this was the device that could really set us up...

GoPro, HERO8, New Camera -

UPDATE 10/24/2019 @ 9:30 PM Short note today.  But GoPro recently released a firmware update for the HERO8 Black.  There were many things added, mostly "bug fixes".  But they also added a new feature that we have been asking for years:  Linear FOV at 4K.  Now, it is a bit limited.  There is no zoom option and only 30 FPS and lower.  But being able to shoot a full game in 4K and not get fence in the shot (from the previously Wide only FOV) is a great benefit.

  Until a full review is complete, the following page is a live-ish (ongoing updates, sometimes coinciding with live events on FaceBook and other sources) review of the Mevo Boost.  Come back for more updates as we find and post.

  GoPro HERO 6 Black Quick Takes What I like (for baseball/softball): 1.) Digital Zoom. Usually photo and video guys aren't too keen on digital zoom. But if you find you have to slightly crop your video in post...never again. Slide the zoom bar ever so slightly to crop the shot. 2.) 5GHZ wifi. I can't speak to the stability yet, but 5GHZ means much faster wireless video/photo transfer. I hope it also leads to potential streaming options....please GoPro...make it happen! 3.) Additional (and higher) Frames Per Second, up 240 FPS at 1080P. But...see below in the "What I don't...
