After two years of preparation, GoPro company officially released the new generation of Hero5 series sport cameras, including the flagship product Hero5 Black and the Hero5 Session which has the compact and portable fuselage. It is worth mentioning that both of them feature 4K / 30fps video recording capabilities. Most importantly, GoPro also joined the voice control and cloud storage for the first time. Please see data below for detailed specifications.

Compared to the regular releasing product line of sport cameras, the official debut of the Karma RC drone opens a new journey of GoPro. By the way, GoPro sport cameras ( Hero4 and its upgraded models ) extremely match to Karma RC drone. And this becomes the obvious advantage if it enters the UAV market. If you like FPV shooting, you can have a try.
GoPro Karma is the foldable RC drone that you can put it into the backpack. Besides, the complimentary control handle and removable anti-shake gimbal can be combined into the handheld steady gimbal. Depending on the remote controller equipped with a touch screen, users can real-time view and control the UAV aerial and flight conditions.
Karma is the Quadcopter, which reserves the place on its head to set the camera lens( external camera fixed gimbal), rather than placing the camera lens on the bottom of the fuselage. This different unique design is questioned by some players. They wonder that if experience crashes accident, then it is likely to cause damage to the camera and PTZ.
Additionally, the maximum flight speed of Karma is 56km per hour, and the control distance is within 1 kilometer. Except for that, it is built in a 5100 mA battery with about 20 minutes endurance.
As for me, I am looking forward to the launching of GoPro Hero5 series sport cameras and Karma RC drone. And I think all of them will raise a hot topic. If you are interested in them, you can pay attention to the news.
In terms of the prices and availability information, GoPro Hero 5 Black and Hero5 Session separately are priced 2998 yuan and 2398 yuan RMB. While Karma RC drone is 6498 yuan RMB. The prices of Karma partner Hero5 Black and Session sport cameras have not yet released. These three new GoPro products will be listed in the global market this October.
