Earlier this year, we learned that GoPro was making camera drone, which is scheduled to be released in first half of 2016. Now, the action cam company has released a new sneak peek video on its YouTube Channel, which is captured by its upcoming quadcopter.
The company said, “The video was captured using a development prototype of GoPro’s quadcopter and stabilization system. This footage has not been stabilized in post-production.” The video posted by GoPro shows a very sharp, colorful and High Definition footage. The video is also exceptionally stable.
Regardless of what company said, this video is great and very smooth. The video captured by GoPro’s unmanned quadcopter doesn’t have same dynamic range as DJI Inspire One, but we should also not forget that this is test footage.
This video doesn’t have 4K capability yet, as maximum resolution given is 1440p. Currently the quadcopter is not shooting 4K video, but it may shoot the Ultra HD video in near future, as most of the drone makers are shooting 4K videos.
GoPro posted this video exactly after it published not so good quarterly financial results. This report suggests the growth of sell in international market, but its sell in America is 7 percent down. This new footage shows an amazing video captured by the unmanned quadcopter. With this GoPro assures that the company is working on first ever camera drone, which will release in first half of 2016.
