The Holiday Season is upon us. It's time to start thinking about (and buying) some gifts for the people in your life. Whether you are looking for a gift for a friend, family members, or yourself, we have some great ideas for you here at VJ. One such gift is GoPro's newest model: The Hero6.

GoPro cameras are incredibly popular. They have broad appeal with both consumers and professionals. They have many uses, can withstand almost any shooting condition, and the quality of the video is astounding. 

The popularity of action cameras can really be attributed to GoPro. They completely changed the game with the Hero series which allowed for an HD camera to go into environments and withstand the elements like no other camera before it. While other camera makers have caught up in producing action cameras, GoPro is still the first in its class, and with each new model of GoPro the cameras get better and more powerful.

New on the Hero6 is the GP1 chip which will give you 2x the performance of the Hero5. It shoots in full 4K with slow motion options as well as timelapse features and you can monitor playback right on the GoPro's display screen. Got the GoPro in a place you can't view it? Then you can use the GoPro app to monitor the shot from away from the camera.

The new model is waterproof and shockproof without its housing, which means it can really take a lot of abuse. It also has built in stabilization so that your footage will look incredible right out of the camera. It also boast improved low-light capabilities and improved battery and storage.

The new part of the GoPro line with this model is a new feature called QuikStories. The new feature will take your footage and edit it together automatically to help you put together teasers before editing all your footage together yourself.

Check out the Hero6 and buy it for $499 from GoPro.

Bad News, Good News

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.


The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.


For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
