GoPro Karma VS. DJI Mavic | Side-By-Side Infographic Helps You See Which Is Best

By Kishore Sawh on October 13th 2016

When you step back and look at where drones were two years ago, then just a month or so ago, and then you look at what we have now with the DJI Mavic and GoPro Karma, you can’t help but arrive at the conclusion that the drone market is evolving at an astonishing rate, making the evolutionary rate of regular cameras seem almost geological by comparison.

The future of drones seems bright, and amongst a market that’s becoming more flooded with options, perhaps none are as representative of our society of ability, portability, and convenience than the Mavic and the Karma.  Each of them is an appetizing cocktail of performance, small form factor, and price, but really which of the two is the right drone for you? One of them surely is, and perhaps seeing this side-by-side infographic put together by MediaKix is just the ticket you need to figure out which one to put on your Christmas list.

    I fell in love with Mavic until I saw the video quality. I am a filmmaker and quality wins EVERY TIME. I dont care if it fits on a ring around my finger, the HERO 5 has better video quality. Also, the built in screen is 3 times brighter than the one on my phone, huge selling point.

    Preordered a Mavic last week. I’m already an Inspire 1 owner so it will be a great addition because of the form factor. I hope that the Karma does well also for those already invested in the GoPro ecosystem.

    None of them will do, because they can’t do 60fps at 4K. It is basically that simple. The Hero5 can do 1440p80, so if I had to choose, then I would choose the Hero5.
