12 betano AdvertisementImage: KickstarterInvented by Madelin Woods after one day discovering her coffee mug was a handy way to contain a burrito鈥檚 mess while she consumed it, the Burrito Pop is dishwasher safe, microwaveable, and is also a useful way to transport a burrito without it getting smooshed inside a lunch bag鈥攌ind of like burrito armor.AdvertisementAdvertisementBut despite all of the apparent benefits it offers, the invention still raises one simple question: Why? Burritos are messy, sure, but it鈥檚 not like you鈥檙e biting into a lit stick of dynamite that could go off at any minute. Grab a bunch of napkins, eat at a table, or lean over when taking a bite; there are a myriad of simple and free solutions to staying clean while eating a burrito, even if you鈥檙e taking the ultimate risk and eating one in a moving car.That being said, if you eat burritos frequently, and are committed to carrying around a giant plastic tube so that you鈥檙e always prepared for when you stumble across a food truck, the Burrito Pop is currently accepting preorders through pledges on Kickstarter. The retail price is expected to be around eventually, which sounds like a lot given napkins are usually free, but you can snag one now for just with delivery expected as soon as December. The usual crowdfunding cautions still apply here, but even moreso in 2020, with supply chains and manufacturing around the world thrown into chaos. If you鈥檙e backing a crowdfunded product this year, an abundance of patience is recommended and you should take estimated delivery dates with a few grains of salt.

That means it can shoot 4K video at 60 frames per second and 1080p at 240fps. My final videos are typically 24fps (it looks more cinematic than 30fps), so that means you can slow 4K video down to 40-percent speed, and you can slow 1080p video down to 1/10th of real-time. 1080p240 is definitely the banner feature here as you can see in the 1080p footage comparison video below:1080p footage comparison and review video with slow-motion goodness.Philosopher Dave Chappelle once said, 鈥淓verything looks better in slow motion,鈥 and he was basically right. Being able to shoot 1080p at 120fps for five times the slow motion was really sweet, but 240fps for ten times the slo-mo is entering a whole other realm. Moments that pass by in an instant are suddenly clearly preserved in a way that your eye can appreciate. Water takes on a whole new life. When watching a bird fly away you can see each individual feather flex and rotate as it flaps. It鈥檚 just. So. Freaking. Cool. I found myself wanting to film all kinds of things that I normally wouldn鈥檛 care about (hello, blowing bubbles underwater) just to see what it looks like in slow motion.AdvertisementAdvertisementCamerasActionGoPro Hero6What is it?A more expensive action camera with gorgeous slow motion.Price0LikeThe slow motion is insane, as is the dynamic range.No LikeA couple of irritating bugs and so so mic quality.GoPro also touted its new electronic image stabilization as its best yet. The good news is that at 1080p it works extremely well. The images are smooth, and while you lose a bit of the field of view (it crops 10 percent off the sides) it doesn鈥檛 appear to reduce image quality. Unfortunately, that鈥檚 not the case for stabilized 4K video. With 4K, that 10 percent costs you, with images becoming noticeably more pixilated and glitchy. It probably wouldn鈥檛 seem so bad except that Sony鈥檚 X3000R Action Camera exists. That Sony is the only action cam that has optical image stabilization, and hoo boy is it smooth! Not only that, it doesn鈥檛 have to crop the edges so there鈥檚 zero quality loss or field of view loss at 4K. Overall, the Sony isn鈥檛 nearly as easy to use as the Hero6, and I experienced a lot of bugs with it, as well as some significant image quality issues, which I address in the test-footage videos (1080p video above, 4K video below).4K test footage comparison.On the 4K side, the Hero6 looks great. When it first launched there were some issues with colors being massively oversaturated, and that was somewhat blinding in 4K, but GoPro just pushed out a firmware update and now the colors look far more accurate but still have plenty of vibrance. The only other action camera that can shoot 4K60 is the Yi 4K+, which, at 0, is a full two Benjamins cheaper than the Hero6, but man, you get what you pay for. Not only did the Yi consistently have the worst image quality of the crew but it was also a serious headache to use, with constant card errors (despite using three different cards) and other bugs.Advertisement setTimeout(() => const adSlot = document.querySelector(.apscustom); const adFallback = document.querySelector(.ars-fallback); if (adSlot) if has been read, but theres no ad, then show the fallback if (adFallback && adSlot.offsetHeight
