GoPro may have led the action camera market since the inception of the brand, but the launch of their new Karma drone has had the whole world excited for a long time.

GoPro Hero 5

The Hero 5 Black is the latest camera to be added to GoPro’s Lineup. The new action camera comes with a  2-inch Touch Display will capture  Video Resolutions up to 4K at 30 Frames per Second. You also get still images with a resolution of  12MP.  A new feature will enable auto-upload of photos and video to cloud when camera is charging

GoPro Hero 5 includes voice control with support for 7 Languages . This is also the first GoPro camera to be waterproof without an additional housing, and it does that till 33 Feet (10m)

The Gopro Hero 5 works with existing GoPro mounts and the new Karma drone. Stereo Audio Recording and Advanced Wind Noise Reduction is added for better video sound capture. Electronic Video Stabilization and a Distortion-Free Wide Angle Video and Photos with New Linear-View Setting

The GoPro Hero 5 will capture RAW and WDR Photo Modes and has inbuilt GPS.



The Karma Drone is something the company has been teasing for a while, the drone comes with a stabalization handle and the company is calling it a complete system. The drone comes in a backpack case and travels with its propellors and landing gear folded. You can remove the camera and Gimbal from the Karma Drone and install it on the Karma handle for a stabilised hand held video experience.

The Karma handle can then be mounted using GoPro mounting attachments on various things like helmets, bikes and cars.

Features include :

A game-style controller features an integrated touch display, making it fun, fast and easy to fly without the need for a separate phone or tablet to see what your drone sees.

The 3-axis camera stabilizer can be removed from the drone and attached to the included Karma Grip for capturing ultra-smooth handheld and gear-mounted footage.

Karma will be available October 23rd in the following bundles:
