GoPro Karma

I’ve always been a fan of GoPro cameras. They were the enabling camera technology that allowed me to shoot the viral video series Dogs in Cars with their first HD model. Now they’ve jumped into the drone market. They’ve been teasing this all year and I just caught a Live Stream of GoPro CEO Nick Woodman presenting the new Karma package. It looks pretty awesome. They have created a companion product much like the DJI Osmo gimbal. So look forward to a LOT of smooth, stabilized footage from the GoPro community. I’m excited to get my hands on one of these. It starts at $799 without a camera.
