Apple today refreshed both the iPad Air and the iPad Mini lines with basically just refined specs but not a re-design or groundbreaking update. The iPad Air 2 is adding the 120fps 720p slow motion feature first seen on the iPhone 5s and bettered in the iPhone 6. However the iPad is not as generous as the iPhone 6’s 240fps and only sports half the frame rate.
Furthermore the iPad Mini 3 has no slow motion feature and seems the least refreshed tablet. If you want an iPad Tablet this year then the iPad Air 2 is a better option overall. If you just got an iPhone 6 or 6+ then both iPad models will be downgrades in performance and features except for the larger screens. For slow Motion the iPhone 6 is still the best bet for Apple products continuing forward.→ Continue Reading Full Post ←
We were alerted yesterday by our reader Robert1200 and today again by James of a new development in low cost high quality slow motion cameras. The fps1000 is about to change the equation all over again. See the already funded Kickstarter Campaign here!
Go Pro Hero 4 Black samples have been hitting the net and included are 1080p 120fps tests. The quality seems much better than what the Hero 3 black was able to do in 720p but it is below what 1080p 60 can deliver on the same cameras.
The open source camera AXIOM by apertuspromises to be the first real solution with open source code to fully control and push the limits of a professional camera for a low price.
The latest specs hint at a possible 300fps at full 4k resolution for their 2015 AXIOM Gamma release which will be in the realm of fantasy for the majority of people without a Bentley or Veyron parked outside your front door.→ Continue Reading Full Post ←
It’s confirmed, the Hero 4 has no 720p 240fps mode like the PetaPixel release claimed.
The camera however does offer a 240p mode in the WVGA mode at Ultra Wide Setting With just 848*480 pixels 16 by 9. Not enough resolution to reach HD but good to have over standard VGA.→ Continue Reading Full Post ←
