GoPro slides as Google announces its tiny Clips camera
GoPro shares fell by as much as 5% in trading Wednesday as Google unveiled a tiny camera that could rival its lineup.
Using facial recognition for people and pets, the Google Clips camera takes photos and videos without sound of moments that its owners miss or are unable to capture.
The onstage demo showed that it was targeted towards parents with pets. Like many GoPro cameras, it can be attached to a moving object or handheld. It will retail for $249.
