New Xplore Camera Lets You Record Your Adventure Videos With Confidence

Adventure videographers know how disappointing and frustrating it is when their Point-of-View (POV)/action cameras fail to record their latest stunts or experiences.

The Xplore camera, designed with adventure video photography enthusiasts in mind, eliminates this all-too-common problem.

What makes the Xplore camera unique is the watch accessory, which is included with each camera. The watch has a 1 3/8-inch LED screen that displays in real time the video that is being recorded. It is also a remote, allowing users to start and stop recording and snap pictures with a click of a button. One watch can even control up to six cameras.

The 16-megapixel camera records video at 1080p at 60 fps, and the photo bursts feature takes 7 shots per second. If the 1 GB internal memory isn’t enough, there’s a port for a MicroSD card. The compact, lightweight and rugged camera is waterproof up to 60 meters.

“The Xplore camera has similar specs as other high-end HD POV cameras on the market but at a fraction of the cost,” said Ben Skidmore, Partner of Xplore Video. “And with the watch, there’s no more pressing record and hoping that the camera is recording; it gives you live visual confirmation.”

With Wi-Fi capability, users also can upload their videos and photos to social media sites with an Apple or Android app designed specifically for Xplore.

"The action-camera market is ripe for another POV camera; consumers prefer to have a choice. The Xplore camera is a serious contender, where quality meets affordability," said Greg Hetrick, Xplore Video Partner. "Beyond extreme sports, the camera is suitable for many other applications from film students to space."

The Xplore camera is currently only available through its Indiegogo campaign.

Xplore Video is offering perks at different contribution levels in the Indigogo campaign. Early adopters can even get the Xplore camera and watch at up to 40 percent off the retail price of $299. Quantities are limited at each tier, so the earlier you contribute, the more savings you’ll get. 


Gigapixel Camera Developed For Skin Cancer Screening 

This unique instrument simultaneously photographs a 2 meter tall individual to 75 micron resolution. Credit: Daniel Marks Researchers at Duke University have developed a 250-gigapixel camera that takes high-resolution photos of the human body to detect skin cancer.

The camera is actually 34 cameras in one and allows the researchers to image the skin down to a freckle.   

"The camera is designed to find lesions potentially indicating skin cancers on patients at an earlier stage than current skin examination techniques," said Daniel Marks, Associate Research Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke. "Normally a dermatologist examines either a small region of the skin at high resolution or a large region at low resolution, but a gigapixel image doesn't require a compromise between the two."

The resolution of high-quality dermatoscopes is still better, but this camera allows for a larger imaging area than a dermatoscope and it could be used for telemedicine.

The camera will have to prove itself in clinical trials before it is available for common medical use.


NFL Fans: Soon You'll be Able to Get Even Closer to the Game

As any NFL fan knows, sometimes new camera angles and tricks enhance the viewing experience; sometimes, they're just flat-out annoying. Hopefully this development will fall into the first category.

Kris Kitani, a post-doctoral fellow at the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute, is working toward his dream of enabling sports fans to watch the games from the ball's point of view. I imagine in a lot of cases, the resulting image would be a nausea-inducing mess. But what about "BallCam's" view on a long hail Mary? Now that might be worth seeing.

Kitani, whose specialty is computer vision, is working with colleagues at the University of Electro-Communications in Tokyo on the project. They think the up-close-and-personal BallCam angle is the next big thing in sports broadcasting, according to the American Physical Society's Buzz Blog:

"It took a couple of tries — shredded balls and broken cameras — to find a good way to put the camera inside of the ball," said Kitani, "in the end, we cut a hole in the side of the ball and pushed the camera in."

By embedding a camera inside of a football, the scientists are exploring a new area of research that Kitani calls Digital Sports.

Using cameras and other sensor-detector technology, Kitani is interested in how technology can aid in analyzing athlete training, augment the spectator experience of the sport, and even create new sports.


Duke University Engineers Build 50-Gigapixel Camera


In 2011, Avigilon brought us the 29-megapixel camera

Now, Duke University engineers have built a protoype 50-gigapixel camera, which has a resolution five times better than 20/20 human vision. 

The camera works by combining 98 mini cameras in a single device. Each camera captures information and software, developed by researchers at the University of Arizona, stitches all the images together to create a highly detailed image. 

The camera measures 2.5 feet square and 20 inches deep.

Details of the new camera were published in the journal Nature.


App Connects Two Smartphones to Take Synchronized Photos

SynchroCam is not just another app. Really, it's a step toward a new age of photography: a collaborative level that is perfect for the social-media world.

SynchroCam lets you wirelessly link multiple devices (on the same wi-fi network or via Bluetooth), freeze a moment in time and save it as a 3D-like animated GIF.

Hopefully, projects like the Apollon concept will come next, allowing your camera to be physically combined with your friends’ cameras. This would let you snap images together to create things like panoramas and 3D photographs. Check out the idea below.

Hey, we can dream. In the meantime, download SynchroCam for free here.
