GoPro’s quarterly revenue plunged 47.4%, but beat analysts’ estimates, which have been sharply lowered on shrinking demand for the company’s body-mounted point-of-view cameras.

The company’s shares were up 2.4% in volatile trading after the bell on Wednesday.

GoPro’s revenue fell to $220.8 million in the second quarter ended June 30 from $419.9 million a year earlier.

Analysts on average were expecting revenue of $194.3 million, according to Thomson Reuters.

That is about 20% lower than the estimate on May 5, when GoPro reported first-quarter results and delayed the launch of its Karma drone until the holiday season.

The company, whose cameras are worn by surfers, skydivers, and other action junkies, said second-quarter units shipments rose 8% to 759,000 compared with the first quarter.
