GoPro Plus will now stash all your videos in unlimited cloud storage


GoPro Plus just got a little sweeter. On January 30, GoPro removed the storage limit for GoPro Plus subscribers, offering unlimited cloud storage space for videos as well as photos. The update also increases the discounts on accessories from 20 percent to 50 percent.

The subscription service is designed specifically for users with a Hero5, Hero6, or Hero7 camera, as these cameras have the capability of uploading content to the cloud. The program launched last year as a way to automatically back up files, later adding the option to replace a broken camera at a reduced cost. The optional service, which costs $5 a month, is one way GoPro is helping users get their content off their cameras and do more with them.

The enhanced GoPro Plus now includes unlimited, automatic cloud backup for the Wi-Fi-equipped cameras. The plan previously allowed users to store up to 35 hours of video footage at full resolution along with unlimited photos. With the update, subscribers can stash all their video on the cloud, which GoPro says means skipping the process of transferring to computers and requires fewer memory cards.

“GoPros are used to capture our users’ most meaningful experiences and GoPro Plus provides the peace of mind that those memories will be preserved in one place and with uncompromised quality,” GoPro founder and CEO, Nick Woodman, said in a press release.

The new unlimited storage also comes with an increased discount on accessories. Subscribers will now have 50 percent off most mounts and accessories. The previous plan offered a 20 percent discount, which makes it a great deal for those who purchase lots of accessories.

GoPro Plus will also replace broken GoPros at a discounted cost for subscribers in the U.S. Subscribers also receive priority phone and chat support.

Users already enrolled in the program can access the new unlimited storage beginning today. The program continues to offer new users a free 30-day trial to try out the service. Additional details are available at the GoPro Plus webpage.

The upgraded service comes ahead of GoPro’s earnings call for the fourth-quarter in 2018, on February 6. While we don’t know what Woodman and his team will report, Woodman said during CES 2019 that it had no negative news about the company to share, suggesting it’s back on track after restructuring.

See the OnePlus 10 Pro now, days before the official January 11 launch
OnePlus 10 Pro 5G.

This is the OnePlus 10 Pro 5G, and it’s coming on January 11. However, before you start checking your bank account in anticipation, there is a catch. OnePlus says the launch will “begin in China,” so it appears the OnePlus 10 Pro will make its international launch later on, and any January 11 launch event will be focused on China.

The image you see here is also the only one OnePlus has shared at the moment, and it hasn’t talked about the specification yet either, so if you’re holding out for a lot of final, official details you’ll have to be patient. But that doesn’t mean we can’t take a closer look at the images and note some of the major design decisions.

The 5 best new GoPro Hero 10 Black features I love to use
GoPro Hero 10 Firmware V1.2.

When I reviewed the GoPro Hero 10 Black in September, I couldn’t help but heap praise on it. Though it’s clearly an evolutionary update to the Hero 9, the Hero 10 goes far enough to offer very real advantages over its predecessor. Between its 5.3K 60 frames per second, upgraded image stabilization, and impressive cloud storage integration, it’s certainly the most powerful action camera available right now.

However, GoPro hasn’t rested on its laurels over the past several months. Over that time, they’ve offered major firmware upgrades and even a post-launch hardware upgrade. With the Hero 10 so dramatically changed since its original launch, it’s worth taking a look at to see what else you can expect from the camera here at the tail end of 2021.
Max Superview
The GoPro Hero 10 features a 4:3 format sensor, but most video these days is displayed in a 16:9 aspect ratio. That typically means either cropping the image or putting up with black bars on the side of the display. GoPro’s Superview mode stretches the edges of the image so that you can take advantage of the entire 4:3 sensor area, but display it on a 16:9 screen at the cost of a fisheye effect.

GoPro boosts Hero 10 performance with new firmware and Enduro battery
GoPro Hero 10 Front Screen.

One of my few complaints when reviewing the GoPro Hero 10 Black was its somewhat fleeting battery life, and though I haven’t personally encountered the issue, many users have reported problems limiting recording times due to overheating. GoPro seems to have heard that message loud and clear, as they have announced a major firmware update for the camera that aims to solve the problems as well as a brand new Enduro battery.

The firmware (which will be available by the end of October) introduces three new video performance modes designed to maximize the Hero 10’s performance in different scenarios. Maximum video performance mode prioritizes high resolution, frame rate, and image quality. Extended battery mode limits resolution and frame rate to maximize recording times and battery life, while tripod/stationary video mode provides high performance when the camera is stationary, and there isn’t any airflow to cool the camera.
