A family visiting Fiordland National Park in New Zealand had their GoPro camera snatched by a cheeky parrot, but fortunately, it managed to capture some amazing footage. This kea, the region’s native alpine parrot species, is known to be mischievous, so never leave a camera just sitting around them.

GoPro was rumored to be in the crosshairs of Apple years ago, but nothing materialized. If the iPhone maker were to make an action camera today, it might look like Antonio De Rosa’s AirCam. The design keeps it simple with an OLED up front that can be used for either selfies or viewing other information.
The GoPro MAX has officially been launched, and it’s actually a three in one device: a traditional HERO-style single lens shooter, a front-screened vlogging camera, and an immersive spherical capture. This is possible due to its two main lenses – one on either side, while still being waterproof up to 16-feet and utilizing GoPro’s HyperSmooth digital video-stabilization technology to shoot video at a maximum resolution of 1080p/30fps.

GoPro is on a quest to become profitable during the second half of this year, and the company believes their latest camera, MAX, will help them achieve that goal. In addition to a front-facing touchscreen display, this model sports two lenses capable of recording sharper 5.6K video in 360-degrees and a new Max SuperView ultra-wide camera mode that fits more of the scene into pictures / videos as well as livestream in 1080p.
