One of the most striking aspects of the Go Pro Karma is its simple but outstanding design. Whether it is a forest shoot or a hiking adventure, the air dog is highly portable. First of all, it is quite lightweight and comes with a modern design backpack that comes in handy during such far away shots. It’s design also means that you will not have to look for alternative means to pack it. It also prides itself over a stabilizer which goes the extra mile in making sure that you get a smooth video capture even when the conditions are all shaky. The drone itself comes in a compact size and an impressive black and white color which will never grow old.
Other feature buyers consider while purchasing any drone is the controller and Go Pro Karma’s controller does not disappoint. With a weight of only 22 Oz, it is lightweight which means you can control your drone without any difficulties. It has a built-in touch screen size of 12.7 centimeters and a resolution of 720 pixels; therefore, you have an easy time switching from one mode to another. Its operating frequency is 2.4 GHz hence signal interferences from nearby drones becomes a thing of the past. The controller has thumb sticks which make handling a piece of cake. For beginners, you do not need to be a holder of a degree in IT and technical stuff to learn how to fly it as the controllers boast an inbuilt flight stimulator program which actually offers you an opportunity to fly the drone without it going airborne. That is quite efficient as you will learn the function of each mode among all the other operations without having to crush it as it is usually the case with many beginners who learn to fly a drone while its airborne.
Being the first drone from Go Pro, the drone’s performance is quite excellent. It comes with several modes such as the drone which allows you to zoom in on selfies which you have taken while the air dog is still airborne. Therefore, you get better selfie pictures as you can always delete the ones which do not impress you. It also has the cable cam mode which is very helpful because you are able to move to pre-defined points hence allowing you to take shots from the best position possible while the reveal mode pans until you get the desired item or subject into focus and then automatically takes a shot. Finally, you have the orbit mode which creates a circular plan on the object. It comes in action once you get the desired angle using the other ones and ensures it does not leave the subject until you are done.
Therefore, you get pictures and videos with the same resolution and the best focus possible. In addition, you can do all this on your Smartphone instead of your controller and even stream in live footage. That is made possible through an application known as Quik through which you can also edit and join clips and even apply filters. Through the same application, friends who have installed it also enjoy the live stream and to make it even better, they can also control it. The speed is perfect and the flight time is long enough to ensure you capture the best of nature or anything that you want.
