GoPro Karma – A Drone That’s More Than a Drone

At Photokina 2016 in Cologne, Germany, GoPro announced their first drone, the not-entirely-unexpected Karma. It is, without wanting to put too fine a point on it, a bit of a game changer in the drone world.

The Olympus O-MD E-M1 Mark II: Sports & Wildlife Photography Game Changer for Mirrorless Cameras

One of the more intriguing Photokina 2016 announcements this year was the one coming from Olympus where they confirmed development of their new flagship camera, the OM-D E-M1 Mark II.

A striking thing about the photography industry is the announcement of development products, it's a kind of beta program which means we don't have to expect pricing and date commitment from manufacturers, but we don't mind too much - it gives us all something to look forward to!

The GoPro Hero5 Black is the upgrade to the GoPro Hero4 with the GoPro Hero5 Session here to usurp the, you guessed it, GoPro Hero4 Session.

Both of the new action cams are capable of great things, amongst them 4K video capture, double-digit MP still imagery, waterproof protection out-of-the-box and the ability to be controlled by your voice, but where there are similarities there are also differences.
