GoPro’s been working on this camera thing for a while now, so you’d expect anything it makes to capture great footage. This video is still impressive. GoPro’s launching a drone in the first half of next year, and released a two-minute video captured with a prototype. “The footage has not been stabilized in post-production,” the video says, and if that’s true GoPro’s got a winner on its hands.
The color and dynamic range aren’t the point—the footage is shot on the Hero 4, which you can already buy. What’s amazing is the perfect, almost dolly-like stability of the shots of an idyllic farm and a journey through the forest. The sleepy guitar music, though, has nothing to do with the drone. It’s just nice.
