Here’s what you need to take amazing videos this winter.
Drones and action cameras have opened up entirely new opportunities when it comes to taking pictures and videos. Winter is a great season to capture special moments on the slopes, in snow-covered winter landscapes or above the sea of fog.
Our two special offers
If you’re only interested in our top offers, we don’t want to keep you waiting. Here they are.
Mavic Pro incl. set of accessories (12MP, UHD)
Pocket-sized drone that's easy to control. Up to 27 minutes of flight time, stabilised 4K videos, active sensing and avoiding of obstacles and many more functions that make your flying experience fun.
Fold it up and it’s no wider than a smartphone. Although compact, this drone is packed with functionality. Automatic take-off, landing and gesture control make it easy to use. What comes in handy in winter is the automatic tracking of a moving subject, as it allows you to follow and film a skier or snowboarder.
Hero 5 mit Zusatzakku und 3-Weg-Griff (12MP, 30p, Grey)
The HERO 5 Black is now also waterproof without its case, features GPS and a touch display with built-in voice control.
With our special offer, the GoPro Hero5 Black including a replacement battery and 3-way mount costs less than only the camera used to.
Drones: take off and record
With the right equipment, you could be taking these kinds of videos in no time:
What you need to keep in mind when you’re taking pictures and videos in winter is that batteries don’t last as long in cold temperatures, so always take a spare one. Ideally, you should keep it in a warm place, for example in your pocket. Further, make sure your drone doesn’t get wet. Avoid flying through fog for a long time and use a mat if you’re landing on snow or wet grass.
Flying a drone on skiing slopes can be dangerous and has even been forbidden in some regions. Read up about the regulations and take note of our general safety tips regarding drones (in German).
Drohnenfliegen – das musst du wissen
More drones on offer
Mavic Pro Platinum, the follow-up model of Mavic Pro, will be available soon. According to the manufacturer, this drone has a longer flight time, is a lot quieter and comes with a redesigned remote control.
Mavic Pro Platinum Fly More Bundle (12MP, 4K)
The Mavic Pro Platinum has an improved flight time of up to 30 minutes and a 60% noise reduction.
Action cameras are another great way to capture your winter activities. These cameras are small and robust, so they can be mounted anywhere − even on your skiing helmet. They record moments that you’d never be able to capture with a regular camera.
It’s worth it, even if you don’t do such crazy tricks as Jesper Tjäder does.

Hero 6 Black inkl. MicroSD 128GB (12MP, 60p, Grey)
The Hero 6 Black automatically copies the latest footage from your camera to your phone and turns it into awesome QuikStories. With the latest GP1-Chip, next level video stabilisation and twice the power, looking good has never been so easy.
GoPro indicate how long the battery of the Hero5 Black and the battery of the Hero6 Black lasts. At normal temperatures, they have a battery life of at least one hour, often a lot more than this. However, if it gets freezing cold, you can’t rely on these indications so you’re better off taking a spare battery with you.
The GoPro action camera and drone can be combined as you like or used individually.
As mentioned before, carrying a spare battery is necessary in winter. Yet, GoPro has more accessories on offer, ranging from mounting to stabilising your camera. Here’s a selection of GoPro accessories:
