Gopro will be aggregating and selling stock footage. It will be
a compliment to their new channel just launched. So they will be monetizing
new verticals. I also expect some higher end cameras from them for drones
with interchangeable "real" lenses" made by a reputable 3rd party that can still be totally housed
and used underwater as well. On the other end expect a camera around $100 - $125
aimed at kids between 7 and 12 years old. Even simpler to use than a traditional go pro,
probably with a removable hand grip, that also can still use their existing mounting systems.
This camera will not be made for underwater applications. But it will have a simple zoom.
The hand grip, it's size, picture quality and shooting options will make it far and a away more fun to use than a cell phone for capturing video with this segment. The gopro "mini".
Also in the works, the go pro micro, which will be a button size capture element which uses an iphone to
control it. Aimed at law enforcement and for undercover applications. They'll be able to be placed almost anywhere, and through your cell phone, will be wifi capable.
Exciting times ahead. Wait for a little more tax loss selling and ten buy with both hands.
