With drone companies rushing to get into the camera business, it makes a sort of sense for a camera company to try its hand at making drones.
Enter GoPro’s eagerly awaited UAV, which now has a name: Karma. After revealing test footage earlier this year (embedded below) the company was keen to emphasise that no stabilisation was applied during post production, which suggests a gimbal will be part of the package when it launches in 2016.
GoPro has had a bit of a time of things since going public, facing legions of competitors in the increasingly crowded action camera market. Even a recent hefty price reduction for its latest HERO4 Session camera has been interpreted as doing too little too late to streamline the company’s product line and bump its share price.
Will diversifying into flying cameras be a way for GoPro to regain its mojo? We’ll find out in 2016… In the meantime you can sign up for more information on the GoPro site and be in with a chance to win one the company are giving away at launch. Let us know if you’re one of the lucky winners!
