Karma Portability – The GoPro Karma fits right into a backpack, allowing users to bring it everywhere they want to go.
Easy To Use Controller – The controller is made in-house, and combines both user-controlled movements, plus some installed camera movements you can choose from the click of a button.

Is the photo below a leaked picture of the Karma? That’s what European sites believe after they were teased with an early photo. If you match it against the official teaser photo from GoPro’s website, that certainly looks like it could be the case.
