GoPro is finally shaking off the pain of quitting the drone business

GoPro is finally shaking off the pain of quitting the drone business GoPro is off to a good start in 2019 after generating $243 million in revenue, a 20 percent increase over its first quarter last year. While the camera company did post a loss of $24 million, that’s way down from the $76 million loss GoPro suffered to start 2018. The company was confident enough after posting these results on Thursday that it raised its guidance to investors for 2019 and said it will turn its first annual profit since 2015, which was the first full year of sales for the popular Hero 4 camera lineup. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

When it comes to consumer gear for filming sports and action, two products immediately come to mind: GoPro’s action cameras and DJI’s drones. GoPro tried to cross over into drones without much success, and now it’s DJI’s turn to try its hand at a small action camera with the new Osmo Action.

The Osmo Action is being billed as a direct competitor to GoPro’s Hero 7 Black, going head-to-head on features and price ($349). It’s already up for sale. But DJI has some new tricks up its sleeve too.

Of particular note is the second front-facing screen, making it much easier to frame shots of yourself. There are also lens covers, which allow you to replace cracked glass or easily add a neutral density filter or polarizer to better account for different lighting situations.  ND filters darken a scene, allowing for easier long exposures or more nuanced control of shutter speed, while polarizers help eliminate reflections. DJI is also building an ecosystem of accessories, including a charging hub that can top up three batteries at once and a floating handle to make sure the camera doesn’t sink to the bottom of the ocean.

This is the brand new OnePlus 7 Pro, and it looks fantastic We saw the OnePlus 7 Pro design leak a bunch of times in the past few months, and we already know the upcoming OnePlus flagship will be a lot different from what we’ve seen in the past from the company. We’re looking at a notchless all-screen phone with a pop-up selfie camera, a triple-lens camera on the back, and curved display edges that will make you think of Samsung’s flagship phones. With less than two weeks to go until the phone’s launch, we now have official press renders of the Pro so we can see exactly what’s in store… and it looks fantastic.
