The announcement last week that GoPro has acquired the French company Kolor, who produce photo stitching software, is another move to keep the company ahead of the competition. With the likes of DJI trying to move people away from using GoPro’s and creating their own high quality 4K cameras as seen on the new Phantom 3 and Inspire, GoPro looks like they could be building a product range from capturing the raw images through to final processing. With rumours of GoPro releasing their own drone, will they also be releasing software to compete with the high end video processing? Time will tell.
