GoPro Karma Review

The GoPro Karma is more than a drone. With it, you can record in excellent quality from original perspectives. It is compatible with Hero 5 Black and Hero 4 (with special adapter).

GoPro Karm Drone

It’s light and compact and you can take it with you anywhere, anytime. Karma is easy to use, making it ideal for people who buy a drone for the first time. GoPro Karma is a droning designed specifically for enthusiastic users who want to have fun recording new images and videos from new perspectives. It’s basically a “flying” support for a GoPro action camera. It has an integrated touchscreen LCD remote control (as opposed to other smartphones on the market that use a smartphone for control) and a range of automatic take-off/landing, “return-to-home” functions if it loses the connection to the remote or without battery, etc.

It has a detachable grip system on which a GoPro Hero 4 or 5 camera can be mounted, which also has a stabilizing function for the camera and can also be used stand-alone to stabilize hand-drawn images with GoPro CPC. The Drona is actually a “kit” composed of two complementary accessories to the action camera: the drone itself and the detachable stabilizer. The advanced stabilization system can be attached to the grip to be used in the hand or mounted on a bicycle helmet, bicycle, etc.

With a 1 hour charge, it can fly for about 20 minutes. What I can tell you from my experience so far:

– the image – extraordinarily stable, even in strong wind conditions (it was the main reason we chose this system, the grip deserves all the money invested). If the wind blows, the camera tilts, but the image remains perfectly stable.

– Take-off – GPS connection or calibration is extremely important (if the system requires it). When I took off without waiting for the sound signal that everything was ok, I landed forcefully on the sand and broke the Hero5 LCD.

– landing – can be done manually if the droning loses the GPS signal and visual contact is maintained, but it is quite difficult for a beginner (requires practice).

– the battery – it keeps quite a bit, if you take off the take-off + landing time, 15 minutes are useful for overflight. It can cover with a little skill a location (2-3 frames). I recommend the second one (it is loaded in an hour after the clock) so that it can work without the pressure of time.

Be careful if there are strong air currents (consider wind direction as well as the wind direction of the drones) may cause shocks that can disconnect the battery. It is the most serious problem (but all drones have it …).

3 Must Have Accessories for DSLR Camera Users

Having a superb and suitable camera is perhaps the main prerequisite for capturing excellent and outstanding photographs and having clean and untroubled camera usage and experiences.

Example of DSLR camera

One type of cameras that are frequently used by both professional and amateur photographers who want a camera with such high quality of photographs and photographic process is the DSLR cameras. But, photographs won’t be fully “polished” and the photo capturing process can’t run smoothly and effortlessly without some camera accessories.

Here are three must-have DSLR camera accessories that will provide a well ordered photographic process that will run more smoothly and efficiently.

1. A First-Class Camera Bag

Each individual DSLR camera user prefers and uses different and often numerous accessories depending on the type of device. But even if you own only several DSLR camera accessories, having an excellent camera bag is essential for any camera user. There are multiple reasons because of which this is very important. The purchase of any type of DSLR camera or the required accessories is a significant investment.

Cameras can be damaged very easily and therefore they require appropriate care. Having a fitting camera bag can decrease the likelihood of damaging or even destroying your camera. Besides protecting your camera and extending its lifespan, a camera bag enables effortless and safe transport of your camera wherever you may take it. But choosing a suitable camera bag is equally important as choosing a first-class camera bag. The camera bag or backpack should have a size and structure which are fitting to the size of the camera you own and the size and number of accessories you have.

2. Extra Battery

Nothing can ruin or impede a quality camera experience like an empty battery. That’s why during travels or any kind of outdoors camera usage you must have an extra battery. Always carry at least one spare battery. This is particularly important for shooting in cold conditions because cold temperatures shorten the lifespan of your battery.

3. External Flash

There are multiple accessories DSLR camera users can own. The extra memory and batteries ensure a smoothly functioning photographic process. But no other accessory is more important for capturing excellent and outstanding photographs than the external flash. The importance of this accessory is so big because of the centrality of light in photography. The external flash enables users to control the environment in which they intend to capture their photographs. The external flash gives users creative control particularly in smaller environments like rooms or any area encircled by walls.
