It’s interesting to note that when the Hero 4 Black was released it was priced at $499, whilst the Hero 5 Black has initially been priced at $399.
GoPro Hero 6 Black
Another year and another new GoPro model to add to the line up. What’s changed with the HERO 6? Well, upon first inspection you might be forgiven for thinking its a HERO 5 Black that you’re holding. But under the hood of this tiny camera is an advanced 4K camera capable of shooting 4K video at 60fps. This is a big jump from the 30fps 4K shooting mode available on previous models like the HERO 5 Black. Having a higher frame rate when shooting HD video makes the video way smoother and is great for slow motion filming too. Put simply, the GoPro Hero 6 takes double the amount of still images to make each video than the previous model. Pretty neat!
GoPro Karma Drone
- Karma captures amazingly smooth GoPro footage in the air, handheld or body mounted.
- The Karma Drone folds to fit into the included lightweight case. Take it anywhere. When you're ready to fly, just unfold, attach the propellers and go.
- The Karma Stabilizer captures breathtaking shake-free video both in the air and on the ground.
The Karma drone is a brilliant drone from GoPro that lets you attach your GoPro HERO camera and record action from an aerial perspective. When it comes to capturing action sports on camera, nothing has changed the game as much in the last couple years as drones. So it was only right that GoPro, the leading action camera company across the globe, venture into the drone market. And what they produced is astonishing. The Karma drone packs down small enough to fit into a backpack, but when opened up its really simple to fly and has some impressive flight controls. The Karma remote is really well designed and feels like a gaming joystick – it’s that easy to control the Karma drone whilst flying it.
