GoPro is finally entering the 360-degree camera game with their very own product and it’s called the GoPro Fusion…or at least I think they are. After seeing the coverage for GoPro’s new toy, it sounds more and more like vapourware to us.
Just as we thought the Karma is gone for good, GoPro’s first drone has returned and it’s ready to bite for a slice of the drone market. Announced in September last year, the Karma was later recalled due to power failures in mid-flight.
We reported earlier that GoPro’s fabled Karma drone was falling out of the sky, which is obviously terrible especially since the drone itself has received a lot of praise from critics. Yeah, it isn’t as good of a drone as something like the DJI Mavic Pro, but you’re getting a solid package with the Karma, Karma Grip and GoPro HERO5.
Well, if you’ve been eyeing a stabiliser for your brand new GoPro HERO5 before the drones started failing, the good news is that GoPro is now selling their Karma Grip standalone.
If you own a GoPro Karma or have placed an order for one, here’s some bad news. GoPro is announcing a full recall for its first-ever drone. This is due to a performance issue where the Karma may suddenly lose power in mid-flight.
The GoPro HERO5 Black and HERO5 Session was launched in Malaysia last week and we took some time to have a quick chat with GoPro’s Global Education senior manager Chris Naegele about what makes the new HERO5 cameras special.
We also got a quick sneak peak at their new Karma drone and it’s super awesome.
The unmanned aerial vehicle used to be a thing in the movies associated with weapons of mass destruction the size of a family saloon. That, or your three-man killstreak in Call of Duty.
Now though, these UAVs — or drones — are more commonly associated with fancy camera equipment you can use to film your cat climbing up a tree. Or sick drag race vids. We’d go with the cat though because we all know cats rule the internet.
