GoPro Karma takes flight
GoPro has long been celebrated for its ability to go anywhere, allowing users to capture imagery from surfboards, motorbikes, canoes or seriously large selfie sticks.
The Karma takes GoPro to the sky for the ultimate in 4K recording and photography.
Easy to fly and simple to handle, GoPro’s latest product offering lets users take aerial shots, image stabilised videos, and capture more of people living life to the full literally anywhere.
The Karma includes the recently released Karma Grip, an image stabiliser that can be handheld or mounted to vehicles, gear and more.
It features a painless out-of-the-box experience the company claims is unlike any other drone in the market:
• Compact and foldable, the entire system fits into the included backpack that’s so comfortable to wear during any activity, users will forget they’ve got it on.
• 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. There is also a GoPro Passenger app, allowing your friends to view your flight or control camera functions whilst the pilot focuses on flying.
• The 3-axis camera stabiliser can be removed from the drone and attached to the included Karma Grip for capturing ultra-smooth handheld and gear-mounted footage.
• A flight time of up to 20 minutes and a 3km range.
GoPro senior director and APAC head of sales Rodney Block comments, “This is GoPro’s first drone and an excellent addition to the GoPro ecosystem.
“Karma allows you to take your GoPro sky high, it’s so easy to use a beginner can capture Hollywood-calibre aerial, handheld and gear-mounted stills and video straight away.”
Priced $1949.99, the Karma Bundle includes a GoPro Karma Quadcopter, GoPro HERO5 BLACK (worth $649), removable Karma Stabiliser (or gimble, worth $520), battery, 6x Propellers, Karma Harness, and a USB-C Cable.
Karma is now available at selected Noel Leeming stores and online.
