As their video demonstrates below, there's a big red button to control recording, as well as a few other features.

Karma is what GoPro named its drone, coming 2016

It seems that all the pieces are set and GoPro is ready to take to the skies in just a few months. It has finally given a formal name to its first direct entry into the growing drone market. GoPro Karma, as it is now known, is set to take flight in 2016, but much about it remains unknown and GoPro has done the almost impossible and has kept much of the drone's details under wraps up to now. Something that smartphone makers probably need to learn how to do better.

GoPro HERO4 Session price cut to $200 for action on a budget

GoPro has again slashed the price of its most affordable action camera, cutting the GoPro HERO4 Session to under $200.

Xiaomi releases its wallet-friendly Yi Action Cam in the US

Xiaomi has just made available one of its products in the US, but no, it's not one of its high profile smartphones. It is, however, an item that's also quite hot in these parts. The Yi action camera is now available for purchase on Amazon for a measly $100, almost a year after the Chinese OEM debuted the budget-friendly device at MWC earlier this year. Despite the price, however, the Yi camera might be just as talented as GoPro's most basic offering, giving action cam fans on a budget something new to chew on.

GoPro footage teases how stable its drone really is

Drones may have not yet littered our skies, but they do already litter product brochures and retail sites. Many of them come with their own camera for fun and profit, but a lot also swear fealty to GoPro's line of action cameras, long considered to be the authority in that field. Now, however, GoPro is trying to spread its wings almost literally by entering into the UAV market itself. Not only has it formally acknowledged the existence of such a project, it is now also teasing how buttery smooth footage taken from its quadcopter will be.

GoPro wants you to send them your videos and photos

GoPro wants you to send them your videos and photos

Since inception, GoPro has been no stranger to using fan-made media to promote the cameras they've been shot on. Movies and photographs captured with GoPro devices are the primary point-of-engagement media for the company - unless you count the billboard-centric photos of athletes craning their necks with cameras on their helmets over the sides of cliffs, of course. To attain that media, GoPro has so far been fairly behind-the-scenes with content creators. Now they're planning on getting it all out in the open.

GoPro Hero+ debuts with WiFi and a low price

These days, GoPro has a wide range of action camera models, all at varying price points.

Featuring WiFi and priced at $200, it fits nicely between the previous two cameras.

GoPro on a balloon found after 2 years with stunning Earth shots

The GoPro line of action cameras, especially when paired with drones, have yielded a massive library of photos and videos that would have been otherwise impossible to take using commercial equipment. But when paired with a weather balloon, things get even more dramatic. In 2013, a group of five students from Arizona did just that and launched the GoPro into the atmosphere. Sadly, they lost track of the camera during after its reentry. Good thing they recovered it two years later in good condition because the footage it had stored is truly a sight to behold.
