GoPro Launches New Drone

News Image
GoPro has introduced a new line of HERO5 cameras to its range, as well as a new drone – Karma.

Appearing at an event in California on Monday, GoPro Founder and CEO, Nicholas Woodman, unveiled the products and services aimed at simplifying the process of capturing, editing and sharing content.

The company's new HERO5 range of cameras can auto-upload photos and videos to GoPro Plus, a cloud-based subscription service that makes it easy to access, edit and share GoPro content anytime and anywhere, using a phone or computer.

The HERO5 Black features a 2-inch touch display and simplified controls, video resolutions up to 4K at 30 frames per second, professional quality 12MP photos, auto-upload of photos and video to the Cloud when the camera is charging, voice control with support for seven languages (additional languages will be forthcoming), a simple one-button control, waterproof – without a housing – to 33 feet (10m), compatible with existing GoPro mounts including Karma, stereo audio recording and advanced wind noise reduction, professional-grade electronic video stabilization, distortion-free wide angle video and photos with new linear-view setting, RAW and WDR Photo Modes, and GPS.

HERO5 Black will be available 2 October, 2016, for an MSRP of $399.99. Learn more HERE.

The HERO5 Session shares the same design and convenience of the original HERO Session camera, but benefits from significant performance upgrades including video resolutions up to 4K at 30 frames per second, professional quality 10MP photos, auto-upload of photos and video to the Cloud when camera is charging, voice control with support for seven languages (additional languages will be forthcoming), simple one-button control, waterproof – without a housing – to 33 feet (10m), compatible with existing GoPro mounts including Karma, professional-grade electronic video stabilisation, distortion-free wide angle video and photos with a new linear-view setting.

HERO5 Session will be available 2 October, 2016 for an MSRP of $299.99.

The new drone announced by GoPro is Karma. This features a compact, fits-in-a-small-backpack design and includes an image-stabilisation grip that can be handheld or mounted to vehicles, gear and more. Compact and foldable, the system fits into the included backpack. The game-style controller features an integrated touch display, making it fast and easy to fly, without the need for a separate phone or tablet to see what the drone sees; while the 3-axis camera stabilizer can be removed from the drone and attached to the included Karma Grip for capturing handheld and gear-mounted footage.

Karma will be available 23 October, 2016 in the following bundles:

• Karma without a GoPro camera – $799.99 (MSRP)

• Karma bundled with HERO5 Black – $1,099.99 (MSRP)

• Karma bundled with HERO5 Session – $999.99 (MSRP) (This will be available in early 2017.)

Commenting on the announcements, Woodman said: "With these new products, we're delivering on our promise to make it easy to capture and share engaging stories. HERO5's ability to auto-upload photos and videos to a GoPro Plus account dramatically simplifies mobile, on-the-go editing, sharing and enjoyment. This is a game-changing experience that we will continue to build upon.

"We're stoked to launch Karma and show how much more it is than a drone. Karma packs Hollywood-caliber aerial, handheld and gear-mounted image stabilization into a backpack for $799. It's so easy to use, a beginner can have fun straight away."
