GoPro just released another video with sample footage captured with its not-yet-announced Karma drone. This time the company gave a Karma drone to American freestyle skier Bobby Brown and some of his friends to test out at Aspen Snowmass in Colorado. The short 1-minute video above is what resulted.
In this video, we do see an interesting shot in which Brown appears to be shooting a selfie with drone in hand. As he reaches the jump, he lets go of the drone, which continues shooting as it flies high into the air. Here’s the sequence:
GoPro’s stock has been taking, and the company recently announced a 7% cut to its workforce after a major drop in camera sales, so it has a lot riding on the Karma drone — if it’s a success, the drone could raise GoPro’s reputation among investors, but if it’s a flop, it could spell doom for a company that’s seeing more and more competition in its space.
