GoPro’s Experimental Drone Footage Looks Pretty Damn Good

GoPro is developing a drone. That much we know; what we don’t is how much it will cost or what it’s like to fly. What we do know, however, is that the footage looks pretty darn great.

In a YouTube video, GoPro has shown off some demo video from its prototype quadrotor. The emphasis is on stabilization: it’s shot with a GoPro Hero 4, so the image quality is what we’ve come to know and love.

The variable is stabilization. The footage straight out of the camera is very stable, looking almost like it’s shot on a Steadicam or a dolly. Sure, this is footage from the manufacturer, and judging by the forest the drone’s moving through, there’s exactly zero wind to knock the drone off course.

But still, it’s impressively steady footage for a prototype drone, and certainly on par with the best from DJI’s popular Phantom drones. 2016 can’t come soon enough.
