After months of waiting, delays and leaks finally from GoPro officially announce the arrival on the market of the new Karma during an event where the American company has also taken the opportunity to surprise everyone present with the presentation of the Hero 5 action camera whose two versions can be adapted for use in this new drone.
As you can see in the image at the top of this post, the leaked design has finally been confirmed weeks ago. Thanks to this, today we can talk about a very compact drone whose arms can be folded to make it much smaller and more manageable when transporting it.
GoPro takes advantage of its event to present both Karma and the new Hero 5.
At least during the presentation of the new GoPro Karma, no one from the company has tried to explain the reasons that led them to have to delay the project on several occasions, perhaps and in a very superficial way everything has a lot to do with the financial problems that the company had to face during the year past, including the drop in sales. On the other hand, it is perfectly feasible that GoPro, at the time, decided to invest more time in reviewing aspects related to the design and the final price at which the drone will be marketed.
Along these lines, I can only tell you the final price at which the company leaders have decided that the equipment should be sold. As a detail, tell you that we have several options available, first of all we can only buy the GoPro Karma without an action camera, which will cost us U.S. dollar 799. If we want the drone with the GoPro Hero 5 Session camera, the price goes up to U.S. dollar 999 While to get the version equipped with the GoPro Hero 5 Black we will have to pay U.S. dollar 1.099.
