The “Watch” auto-shot path will keep KARMA hovering in place while it rotates and keeps KARMA controller in the frame. Also introduced is the “Cable Cam” auto-shot path where you can set up to 10 waypoints for complex shots.
- Compatible with GoPro HERO6 Black
- Follow – Follows the KARMA Controller, framing you in the shot
- Watch – Automatically keeps the KARMA Controller in frame while hovering in place

- Look Up Tilt – Allows the camera to tilt upwards to look above the horizon (current KARMA owners may unlock new features via the firmware update, available today.)
New GoPro Accessories
New GoPro accessories introduced today include The Handler, Shorty and Bite Mount + Floaty. While we missed the Bite Mount today but it is basically a GoPro mount for your mouth so that you can focus on what you’re doing.
The Handler is a floating GoPro mount that floats. Perfect for aquatic activities as you can easily find your dropped GoPro with the bright orange handle end.
The Shorty is designed as an ultra portable tripod with an extension pole. As you can see, it is so compact and minimalist, even the screw have to be specially designed to avoid tangling to cables in the bag.
