This is too bad, I'm rooting for them as they're a local Socal company.

Crazy to see how fast GoPro is collapsing. Their cameras are among the best in the segment, but they're priced higher than just about everyone else and stiff competition is killing their bottom line. Cheap Chinese competitors like the Yi can do the job at a fraction of the cost. If you're just looking for a knock around POV cam, its pretty tough to pay double for an image that in many cases isn't superior.

Then they release a half-baked drone that can't fly straight. And it gets recalled. But the modular approach is brilliant, having a drone and being able to use the gimbal handheld is a really great idea. It just came two years too late. I'm in the market for a drone, watching the test videos vs the DJI Mavic made it a pretty easy decision, the Karma just wasn't ready yet. Given the mounting losses, its a real head scratcher how top management would let the Karma go into production if it has a fatal flaw - surely this surfaced in pre-prod testing and its not something you want to sort out in 6 months with a FW update because of all the negative attention. The rush to get to market before Christmas led to a really dumb decision. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Feels like someone is going to swallow GoPro for the brand recognition and integrate it into its product line. Canon doesn't make action cams. GoPro's image is better than DJI's small sensor offerings IMO, that seems like a natural landing place for GoPro's intellectual property.

I hope they don't disappear from the space they almost single-handedly created. I bought a Hero2, geez must have been 5 years ago, and I think I paid $150 for a bundle on sale for the top end model. Now the entry point is $300 for a 4k capable cam and the Hero is $400. They've priced themselves out of their own market.

As long as it's not the Instant variety, I guess there's time.
