GoPro Plus plan replaces broken action cameras, offers several perks

GoPro Plus plan replaces broken action cameras, offers several perks

Action cameras are inherently prone to damage -- after all, they're designed to ride on drones, attach to mountain bikes, record under water, and more. GoPro remains the best known action camera maker in the US, and many customers have put its various models through the paces. For those who pushed things just a little too far, the company has introduced a new service plan that replaces those broken cameras.

GoPro Fusion Android support arrives for 10 compatible phone models

Last year, action camera maker GoPro introduced a 360-degree 5.2K camera called Fusion, a model that resembles the company's HERO models but with notably different functionality. The GoPro Fusion has launched in the months since its introduction, enjoying fairly solid user ratings and reviews while helping GoPro edge away from its business troubles. Thanks to a new app update, Fusion just got a little more appealing.

GoPro hunting a buyer as sale tipped

GoPro hunting a buyer as sale tipped

GoPro is shopping for a potential buyer, it's reported, having announced dire holiday sales and the unexpected axing of its Karma drone line. The action camera company said today that demand over the 2017 holiday period proved less impressive than GoPro had expected, and that it would be forced to shed staff as a result.

GoPro Karma drone axed as company struggles

GoPro Karma drone axed as company struggles

GoPro delivered preliminary results for its fourth quarter ending December 31, 2017 today, and while there isn't much in the way of detailed financials, this report does still provide something of a bombshell announcement. GoPro revealed that it will be exiting the drone business, which is sour news for those who are fans of its Karma drone. This is particularly surprising because, as GoPro itself points out, the Karma managed to reach "the #2 market position in its price band in 2017."

GoPro survives lava bath: here’s the stunning video it shot

Someone decided to sacrifice a GoPro camera to the lava gods, but the camera survived anyway. Yes, we're talking about literal lava here, and yes the GoPro literally caught on fire. Where others would have failed, though, the GoPro persisted, not only surviving the encounter, but continuing to record the entire time. No one expected that outcome, but it's the best we could have hoped for.

GoPro had a great Q3, paves the way for Q4 with Fusion and HERO6

GoPro had a great Q3, paves the way for Q4 with Fusion and HERO6

GoPro struggled financially for years, ultimately undertaking somewhat drastic measures to correct its course. Those measures included multiple layoffs, ultimately shedding hundreds of jobs while restructuring the business in a way that would cut costs and, if all went as planned, help it be profitable again. All of that work has paid off, according to the company's most recent quarterly results.

GoPro Fusion Preview: This video shows the 360 camera’s true potential

GoPro Fusion Preview: This video shows the 360 camera’s true potential

GoPro may have launched the HERO6 action camera this week, but it's the Fusion camera which has me really intrigued. It promises 360-degree video and photo capture like other VR cameras we've seen, but justifies its $699 price tag with OverCapture, GoPro's big new software feature. That will allow you to take 1080p traditional videos from spherical footage, and as I found out when I tested it myself, it's a potential game-changer.

GoPro HERO6 first-impressions: QuikStories, 4K and stabilization

GoPro HERO6 first-impressions: QuikStories, 4K and stabilization

GoPro's HERO6 Black has arrived, and while it might not have the slick 360-degree features of the GoPro Fusion, 4K60 support is not to be ignored. Promising better digital stabilization, more involving colors and broader dynamic range, and a handy touch zoom, not to mention swifter wireless, you get a lot for your $499. I put on a helmet and got temporarily EXTREME to see how it holds up.

A new GoPro Karma drone update added some slick flying skills

GoPro's Karma drone is getting an update today, adding not only support for the company's latest camera, but new flying skills too. Launched - or, more accurately, re-launched - in February this year, the drone is designed to suspend an action camera like the new GoPro HERO6 Black from its stabilizing gimbal on the front. Now, it can do more interesting things with that camera.

GoPro Fusion official: Slick software makes a 360 must-have

GoPro Fusion official: Slick software makes a 360 must-have

GoPro's Fusion spherical camera has finally launched, the company's latest action camera packing 5.2K resolution. Announced back in April, the Fusion clearly looks like a relation to GoPro's HERO cameras - including the HERO6 Black also announced today - but it has a far broader field of view. In fact, it captures a full 360-degrees, though you don't have to keep the footage that way.

GoPro Hero 6 Black discovered with 4K, 60fps recording

The latest action camera from GoPro, the Hero 6 Black, has leaked ahead of its official reveal, but not in the typical way of specs and photos making their way online. Instead, the actual camera, complete with finalized retail packaging, has been discovered at a Best Buy store in Canada. This comes well before the expected announcement/release on September 28th, but it gives us an early look at the camera's details and specs.
