May 15 DJI will release a camera, will it be a Osmo pocket II. or will it be a Osmo Pocket in a action camera, a machanical 3 axis with an enlarge screen that can deliver 140 minutes of [email protected] that a gopro can not offer at all. this would put gopro in a i situation, not at all they put themselves there.

so is this rumor true. stay tuned.

the Osmo Pockets only just been released so won't be a 2 already. Some have said it'll be a waterproof case for the Pocket, but being such a big launch I suspect it'll be the rumoured action camera

DJI making a camera's about as wise as GoPro making a drone imo

Yet another contender. Do we need this? Will they bring anything substantially more or better to the table?

BTW, I note that Youtube has at least one vid on the Fusion 2 coming to a theater near you....

GoPro released their Q1 Earnings today, May 9, 2019. While these calls are generally to review company performance in terms of revenue and engagement with the market, they also often contain small sneak-peaks into their business plan, and subsequently, a few hints at the next products and their launch dates. GoPro does their best to “play things close to the chest,” but today, they were quite forward. Below are some confirmations of rumors we’ve expected for some time now.

Note: I’ll quote moments in the call as “proof” of the facts. If you’d like to verify my statements you can listen to the call itself here, or review the transcript here. While it should be obvious, this article is my interpretation of this call, and you should make your own evaluation based on what you hear in the call. Additionally, the images in this article are self-created mockups to illustrate the topics and are not in any way from GoPro themselves.

Hero8 Lineup is coming
Hero8+Black++Edition+Rumor+2019+GoPro+Launch+Mockup+KnowHero
WHAT WE KNOW:
Early in the call Nick Woodman (GoPro CEO) comments that they are expecting to refresh the entire lineup of cameras, “at all price points.”

I'm happy to share that we're planning an exciting refreshed lineup at all price points in Q4

- Nick Woodman, CEO GoPro, Inc

GoPro currently offers multiple cameras at different price levels, Hero7 White for the entry-level , Silver for mid-range, and Black Edition for the flagship offering. Noting “at all price points'“ tells us that we can expect all 3 of these cameras to be updated, where at points in the past, GoPro has only updated just the flagship.

WHAT WE DON’T KNOW:
Actual Name- First and foremost, Nick never specifically said, “Hero8.” While we assume this to be the name of the upcoming camera(s), GoPro has diverged from this integer naming scheme in the past when launching the Hero3+ after the Hero3. GoPro could just as easily launch the “Hero7+” and not a “Hero8.”

Specs or features- It seems that Nick was intentionally vague when saying “refreshed.” The term “Refresh” doesn’t really indicate if this next camera generation is getting a slight facelift, or a complete overhaul. Many of us would like to see a Hero8 sporting an all-new GP2 chip inside, but for now, we’ll have to wait to get a better view of what “refresh” means, exactly.

Fusion 2 is confirmed

Along with the full lineup refresh, Nick also noted that the “Spherical” camera category would be addressed.

I'm happy to share that we're planning an exciting refreshed lineup at all price points in Q4, including our next generation spherical camera

- Nick Woodman, CEO GoPro, Inc

GoPro’s Fusion camera is now almost 2 years old, and while still the industry leader for quality in its category, many feel that the user experience of Fusion is pretty “clunky.” From its dual-card memory management to its large size, Fusion has a lot to improve upon.

WHAT WE KNOW:
Up until this point, Nick and the GoPro management had only hinted at developing a second generation spherical camera, saying that there were still significant opportunities in the spherical space, or saying that they felt that spherical was a strong path for the future of cameras. Now, finally, we’ve seen actual confirmation that GoPro intends on making a second generation of spherical Camera.

WHAT WE DON’T KNOW:
Actual Name/System- Technically, Fusion is the THIRD spherical product GoPro has made. They also made a 16-camera “Odyssey” spherical camera system, as well as the 6 camera “OMNI” system. Fusion was simply GoPro’s first “all-in-one” consumer package for the space. While we REALLY hope that GoPro intends to make “Fusion 2,” it’s entirely possible that we could see a next generation OMNI or Oddyssey (which use Hero4 cameras) updated for Hero7 or Hero8. If I had to make a gut call, I’d say it’s FAR more likely to see Fusion 2 than one of the multi-cam systems updated, simply because of the small difference in quality with a huge difference in ease of use.

Specs/Size/Software- While getting confirmation of a potential “Fusion 2,” this tells us NOTHING about specs and features right now. While we all want to see better resolution, smaller size, and significantly improved software (PLEASE GOPRO, PLEASE!), we’ll be waiting this one out for more details.

2019 Launch date of the next (4?) cameras

Although not great for panning, its gonna take a whole lot for DJI to top Hypersmooth Image Stabilisation........and I cant see them doing it with the leaked camera specs....

i've seen someone say they "can't wait to see how well the stabilisation works, as DJI drone footage has always been brilliant". I may be wrong, but i think this is DJI's 1st attempt at EIS & not using a physical gimbal

Custome mode that will win a lot over a profile to set up.

Watched the vids and it is a decision to make is it worth $350 of hard earned cash?

As night shots shown its not better or worse, its a shot at night that any camera wit ha 1/2.3rds sensor

Narrower lens than GoPro. Copy of physical shape. Sensor and processor from 2016 Yi 4K+ (allows massive price reduction?). No superview. No TimeWarp. HDR cannot be used with stabilization, unlike Protune - confirm?! Much more crop than GoPro uses for EIS?
