GoPro Hero5 Black

Amercian company GoPro was founded by Nick Woodman in 2002 with the aim of producing cameras that would enable sports like surfing to be shot from close proximity. The first camera system, produced in 2004, used 35mm film but digital cameras weren’t far behind.

GoPro is now the action camera market leader and its name has even become a verb for the process of using an action cam of any make. However, cheaper competition and production issues have put the company through some difficult times. 

With the introduction of the Karma Drone and Karma Grip, GoPro raised its profile to new heights only to fall back to Earth when its drones... fell back to Earth. But with the launch of its Fusion 360 camera, the budget Hero action cam and a tight marketing plan, GoPro is still the undisputed leader in the action camera market.
