GoPro has officially entered the 360-degree camera space. Today the company revealed its new spherical camera, called GoPro Fusion, and with that reveal indicated its intention to step into the world of VR content creation.

GoPro is laying off a bunch of employees (again)

GoPro revealed in its latest quarterly financial report that it is eliminating about 270 positions within the company, something resulting from a mixture of layoffs and the removal of open positions. If this sounds familiar, that’s because it is: the company made a similar announcement last year, that time saying it would be giving about 200 positions the axe. The layoffs are part of a cost-cutting maneuver.

GoPro HERO6 launch confirmed for 2017

GoPro has confirmed that we'll be seeing the next iteration of its HERO camera, the HERO6, some time this year. The confirmation isn't entirely surprising, but does lay to rest speculation that troubles with HERO5 production, as well as the Karma drone recall, may have delayed the arrival of GoPro's next flagship action camera. The news was confirmed during the company's fourth-quarter 2016 earnings call.

Fixed GoPro Karma drone returns to skies to save firm’s fortunes

GoPro's Karma drone is back on sale, after having been yanked from shelves over a flaw that could literally see it fall uncontrollably from the skies.

While that might not seem significant, it was enough to cause a handful of the drones to lose power mid-flight.

GoPro Karma drone’s Grip now on sale by its lonesome self

GoPro Karma drone’s Grip now on sale by its lonesome self

We’re still not sure when the Karma, GoPro’s first ever and ill-fated drone, will return. IF it will return, which may be in doubt given GoPro’s financial troubles. But while the Karma itself may not be here, or may never be again, it’s legacy will live on. Or at least part of it. GoPro has just made available the Karma’s stabilizer as a standalone handheld product, the Grip. Perhaps it’s a last ditch effort to salvage what it can from the Karma, by selling the feature that made the drone quite impressive.

GoPro slashes jobs and axes divisions amid growing HERO5 sales

Solid sales of GoPro's newest action cameras may be warming the hearts of company execs this holiday season, but it's not enough to save the workforce from sizable job cuts. The GoPro HERO5, announced back in September as the camera firm's flagship model, has succeeded in turning around the slump in demand, the company said today. In fact, sales over the week including Black Friday suggest a 35-percent rise year-on-year in the US.

GoPro Karma owners given free HERO5 for returning failed drone

GoPro Karma owners given free HERO5 for returning failed drone

GoPro’s Karma drone was a big, disappointing flop, and the company proceeded to recall the model shortly after launching it. The whole ordeal has been frustrating for buyers who now have to proceed with returning the unit and waiting for a refund. To try and make up for that, GoPro is giving those buyers (the ones located in the U.S., that is) a free HERO5 Black action camera once they return the drone and everything related to it.
