You’ve all seen first person or POV videos at some point — but the new Biting Elbows music video is something else entirely. Continuing with the Insane Office Escape Series (insane is an understatement), Ilya Naishuller (who is also in the band) directs another video with balls-to-the-wall non-stop action — giving movies like Crank a run for their money. Using a first person perspective, our hero fights his way through seemingly endless waves of suit-and-tie bad guys, with a little bit of teleportation thrown in for good measure. Check out the decidedly NSFW video below: More »

A few months ago, Sony announced that they were going to be entering the action/extreme sports camera arena and go head-to-head with GoPro and Contour. While GoPro seems to be the go-to action sports camera, Sony is hoping to chip away with a similarly-priced alternative.

Not too long ago John Hess from FilmmakerIQ shared a few videos about replacing the lens on your GoPro camera. Now he’s made a new video showing how he’s installed a brand new varifocal zooms lens in his GoPro which actually acts as a macro lens.

Check out the video embedded below. More »

JVC GC-XA1 Adixxion POV CameraNot to be outdone by GoPro, Contour, and newcomer Sony, JVC is entering the action camera market with the unfortunately named GC-XA1 Adixxion. Are we about to see an explosion in action or “pov” cameras? GoPro has a healthy lead in this area, and it looks like the big guys, namely Sony and JVC, feel that the semi-disposable wearable camera market is only going to grow in the near future. JVC, however, is looking at the higher-end possibilities with this camera, and they’ve made the Adixxion a lot more fully-featured than the competition. More »

Sony, not content to compete in…well, pretty much every segment of consumer and professional technology, has decided to enter the “action camera” arena with their own miniscule device. Sony, being the enormous company that they are, felt they could make a dent in the overwhelming lead that GoPro has in the area of action sports cameras. Sony has certainly made small cameras in the past, but this is the first time that they’ve built one to be worn specifically as an extreme or action sports camera. More »
