Attack of the Drones
Watch out Halldor, those drones are gonna get you... Gonna get some creamy footage of you, that's what!
GoPro Karma has landed and it's pretty next level as you may have seen from all the super smooth, shake-free Insta clips on your snowboard portal / social media feed over the last month or so.
Drones are hot right now. So you better add one to your camera bag if you want to stand a chance in this funny place we call the snowboarding media.
Karma is a drone unlike most. It wants to fly, to live free and soar like a bird. It's probably even more reliable than a train Kestral because you can press one button to make it take off and land. It fits in a backpack so small you'll forget you have it on. It includes an image stabilisation grip that can be handheld or mounted to your helmet, chest, snowboard, camera or any other place you can stick an old GoPro mount to, making it easy for anyone to capture amazingly smooth, stabilised video during almost any activity, especially snowboarding on shitty snow that isn't powder. The whole package, including a brand new Hero5 is only £1,199.99... That's a lot of summer pizza deliveries, kids. But it will pay for itself with all the incredible footage you'll be able to capture and sell to Method TV.
One of the best things has to be the Karma Grip, which Halldor is using in the non-photoshopped photo above. With this, you'll get (mere mortal ground level) super-smooth video content for your Instagram feed in a cinch. You can even use the GoPro app to make an edit on your phone on the chairlift and post it to all your followers who will probably unfollow you because you're having way more fun than they are.

It's true. Karma features a painless out-of-the-box experience 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 Xbox-style controller with 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.
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.
