GoPro’s New HERO5 & Karma Hands-On!


As a member of the press, I was invited to the GoPro new product launch and media event at Squaw Valley Resort in Lake Tahoe this week and will be sharing info, updates and my first impressions hands-on with the new GoPro Hero5 and Karma. Check back for updates throughout the week as I continue to run this new camera through its paces!

From the official press release and beyond:

SAN MATEO, Calif., (September 19, 2016) – GoPro, Inc. (NASDAQ: GPRO) today unveiled new products and services that dramatically simplify the process of capturing, editing and sharing engaging content, establishing GoPro as an end-to-end storytelling solution.

In addition to significant gains in performance and convenience, GoPro’s all-new HERO5 line of cameras can auto-upload photos and videos to GoPro Plus, a cloud-based subscription service that makes it easy to access, edit and share GoPro content anytime, anywhere using a phone or computer.

At the launch event, Nick Woodman makes his usual entrance to a cheering crowd. Everyone already has a basic idea of what’s to come, but a lot of details were left out of the press packets the night before.

He started out with the concept of storytelling, and how GoPro is in the “storytelling business”. Then on to the new products – the HERO5 Black comes first. Then the HERO5 Session. Followed by the new Desktop and Mobile apps – and the Quick Key. Finally, the Karma Drone and Handheld Gimbal are announced with some great fanfare and promo videos.
