GoPro manufactures eponymous action cameras, consumer drones and recently released its video-editing software. Founded in 2002, its founder initially wanted to develop wrist straps to tether existing cameras to surfers’ wrists. Eventually realising there is a need to sell its own camera and waterproof housing, the first GoPro camera, a 35-mm HERO, was introduced in 2004. Over the years, the HERO cameras were improved and further developed with better technologies.
Marketed as mountable devices, GoPro cameras allow people to film themselves by attaching it to their helmets, surfboards, ski poles and more. It gave users the distinct panoramic footage shot that is considered as one of GoPro’s signatures and for capturing moments on-the-go. GoPro also later released its own consumer drone, GoPro Karma, and various mounting accessories for its cameras such as the chest harness and 3-way mount. The latest offering, GoPro Hero 5 introduces new features like voice command and electronic image stabilizer. Browse the tech gadgets by GoPro in Singapore (SG), available in duty-free shopping.
