Camera Drones

Announced within a week of each other, the GoPro Karma and the DJI Mavic Pro are the season’s (the year’s?) hottest drones.

At $799 (if you “bring your own camera”), and $999/$1,099 if you want to include a Hero5 Session or Black, Karma is priced aggressively, undercutting DJI’s Phantom 4 if you factor in the cost of the hand-held stabilizer (DJI’s cheapest equivalent costs an extra $300).

A DRONE-mounted camera has captured the hilarious moment an Uber driver was caught out by the rising tide as he ferried passengers back from an island. The cab was spotted as it tried to return from Lindisfarne Castle on Holy Island, Northumberland, yesterday afternoon. Footage shows the desperate cabbie racing against the tide to get […]

Article after article after article after article declared GoPro’s drone to be the loser, a 1.0 product that entered the race just as its rivals were crossing the finish line. But here’s the thing: Even if the timing of the Karma announcement was a disaster, the drone itself isn’t quite. A water bug in the sky […]

Drones have been a topic of substantial debate in recent months. Some people, and government officials as well, feel that these camera-equipped flying devices can be a threat.

Part of the fun of drones is taking photos and videos while flying. But Sweden apparently does not like fun.

Like a magically floating GoPro, it keeps your face or body focused in the camera frame the entire time, keeping pace even if […]
