The world of action cameras has become a big business in a relatively short amount of time, and the GoPro brand has become synonymous with the niche market for such devices. In 2013 GoPro shipped nearly 4 million of its GoPro cameras worldwide, and the company's sales hit $986 million, with profits of $60.6 million. There are now many competing devices hitting the market and it shows. GoPro just reported first quarter sales of $236 million, which is down from $255 million in Q1 of 2013. Net profits have also taken a hit, dropping to $11 million, compared to $23 million in Q1 of 2013, so how are GoPro going to continue growing the brand?
GoPro was founded by its current CEO Nicholas Woodman after he needed a find a waterproof camera to take with him while surfboarding, and after coming up with a solution, Woodman started on his journey to becoming one of the most successful technology startup founders in recent history. After using what little cash he and his family had to develop and promote the camera, Woodman struck a deal to partner with Foxconn in 2012, Woodman and GoPro filed for their IPO back in February and the company hasn't looked back since.
There have been three successful GoPro cameras so far, and with the much hyped GoPro Hero 4 due to be released sometime this year, the action camera segment will really heat up. The GoPro Hero 4 will supposedly be powered by a new A9 SoC processor, and will be capable of recording video in 4K at 30fps, while keeping features such as built-in wi-fi. No matter what happens, you will soon be seeing GPRO on your local NASDAQ ticker.
According to USA Today on Monday, the new GoPro 4 Silver revealed footage of it in action. A great feature about this mini-camera is the fact that it's water proof and thus doesn't require any housing like its predecessors.
There's footage of the camera sitting or traveling through wet environments such as walking through an area near a water fall, in a pool, boat trip, bottom of a glass of ice water with lemon, and then even inside the demonstrator's mouth. Such a demonstration looks to make prospective consumers aware of the extent of the kind environment this device can exist.
The Hero 4 Session is priced at $399 and has been touted as the lightest, smallest, and the camera most easily used. It's known to have a learning curve and one may have to rethink their method of attempting to use shots, but it is a lot easier to operate. The typical GoPro camera have hard-to-read menus and are typically easier to use when navigating the menus via a hand held device like Apple or Android. The only thing is, such a utilization requires the camera to be synced to the device. That being said, this can be over tenuous for battery power on the such devices. With the Hero Session 4, the only thing that needs to be done is a button to turn it on and if films. The time-lapse feature requires the holding down of the button long and thus will take pictures of stills.
