Go Pro Hero4 2014 revealed on video with 30FPS 4K video/120FPS 1080P, current version goes on sale

How’s your Russian? Apparently Rozetked who got the iPhone 6 ahead of time got their hands on what appears to be the next GoPro4 camera out there with some nice specs in tow. 4K videographers will appreciate the 30FPS and the 120FPS on the 1080P. For still images, you’ll be able to capture 12 megapixel photos at 30 frames per second.

Audio capture is also improved, with the new system capturing 2x the dynamic range.

On the front of the camera is an ultra-wide angle glass lens, and the camera can be set to three different field-of-view settings: Ultra Wide, Medium, and Narrow.

There will be new manual settings for both photography and videography — controls such as color, ISO limit, exposure, and more.

The camera is waterproof down to 131 feet (40m). Other features include built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, exposure settings for nighttime shooting, a “HiLight Tag” feature for marking key moments in footage, a QuikCapture feature for powering up and recording with one button press, and auto low light features.

Apple’s Lightning cable has been a thorn in side of Apple fans for a while now. Shortly after its debut alongside iPhone 5 in 2012, it became abundantly clear that Apple’s claims of ‘improved durability’ where specious at best. Apple-branded Lighting cables have failed time and time again.

Now it’s three years later and Apple has done nothing to address the durability of its Lightning cables. We’ve put together a roundup of ultra-tough Lightning cables that should last longer than your new iPhone 6/6 Plus… Read more

Faster 2.1A car/chargers/batteries/surge protectors for iPhone 6/Plus quick charging (roundup)

9to5-image 2014-09-23 at 8.01.38 AM

Yesterday, it was revealed that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus could be charged faster (in some cases as fast as 2 hours to full) using a 2.1A AC charger like the one that comes with the iPad. Curiously, Apple has only included the typical  5W 1A iPhone charger that it traditionally has with its iPhone 6 and 6 Plus meaning that your iPhone charge times coming from much smaller iPhones are going to go through the roof.

Not to worry! The 9to5Toys team will get you updated to 2.1A USB ports across the board with the best products/deals we could find for a wide range of 2.1A USB needs… Read more

If you were lusting over the new 128GB models and ended up with 64GB or even 16GB, then you may want to consider these wireless options for increasing your iPhone’s storage capacity…
