Why be earthbound when GoPro can launch you into the heavens? A captivating recent spot from the digital camera phenomenon launches its Hero 5 camera by pairing it with the new GoPro Karma drone for shots of outdoor lifestyles all around the world ranging from rock-and-roll performances to adventure skiing and surfing. With a soundtrack powered by Jai Wolf‘s mesmerizing “Indian Summer,” the short film packs a lot into a few minutes while artfully illustrating the benefits of the camera-drone tandem.We’ve covered drone video previously (see our post When “Droning On” Is a Really Good Thing) and this is a step forward in energy, ambition and lavish landscapes. Its lush colors, exceptional locations and invitations to a more adventurous and imaginative lifestyle are powerful antidotes to the everyday.
Unfortunately, this Karma drone was recalled in November for losing power during operation…Which means this video is the closest you’re going to get to owning one of your own, at least for now!
