Following this summer’s delay, GoPro has finally unveiled its foldable, quadcopter-style drone, the Karma. Sleek and intended to be easily stowed in a backpack, the Karma not only offers a compact design, but comes with a gaming-inspired controller with a built-in touchscreen. Its tri-axis stabilizer can even be deployed and attached to an included handheld “Karma Grip” for on-the-ground use like a Steadicam.

And that’s not all GoPro had up its sleeve. The company also unveiled its latest cameras, the HERO5 Black and HERO5 Session. While the Black boasts the likes of a 2-inch touchscreen, 12-megapixel photos, RAW support, built-in GPS, voice control, 4K video at speeds up to 30 fps, and 1080p video at up to 120 fps, the Session builds on its HERO4 predecessor — previously GoPro’s smallest and lightest camera — and also offers voice commands along with 10-megapixel pictures and 4K video shooting at up to 30 fps. Both cameras are also now natively waterproof, so no special housing is needed.

GoPro’s Karma is due out October 23 for $799 USD or alongside the Session or Black for $999 USD or $1,099 USD, respectively. As for the cameras themselves, they’ll drop October 2 for $299 USD and $399 USD.
