GoPro has launched its new line of HERO5 cameras, cloud-based software, and drone, Karma that folds up into a supplied backpack.

 

The Karma can be folded and fits in a small backpack and includes an image-stabilisation grip that can be handheld or mounted to vehicles, gear and so on.

It has a game-style controller with an integrated touch display so there’s no need for a separate phone or tablet to see what your drone sees.

The 3-axis camera stabiliser can be removed from the drone and attached to the included Karma Grip for capturing handheld and gear-mounted footage. It will be available from 23rd October and is bundled with a GoPro camera for £719.99 or £999.99 with a HERO5 Black.

 

GoPro also launched the Hero5 Black that will retail for £349.99 and the Hero5 Session (£249.99). Both are available from October 2nd.

 

Here are GoPro’s features lists for both.
