The GoPro Karma Grip is the same gimble stabilization that is used on many drones and professional camera rigs, but in a handheld version that for $299 will make all your GoPro videos 299% more amazing.
Mount your HERO 5 natively, or get the adapter to mount your HERO 4 or HERO Session, and start capturing the smoothest videos you’ve ever filmed. The Karma Grip can be used hand-held, but in typical GoPro fashion, it comes with a mount that can be used to attach the stabilizer to your existing body, bike, and board mounts.
Your GoPro works seamlessly with the Karma Grip, charging simultaneously and with the ability to offload footage without removing the camera.
Watch my field test with it below.
This video, (part of a larger adventure edit coming soon), was my first real test run using the GoPro Karma Grip and I was simply blown away! I take my GoPro’s on nearly every adventure of mine, but for mountain biking and snowboarding, the shots are almost always unusable. But not anymore.
On the steep, narrow, winding Wright Ski Trail, in the New York Adirondack Mountain’s High Peaks area, the Karma Grip gave me beautifully smooth, watchable snowboarding footage!
Also seen prominently in this video is the Peak Design Capture Camera Clip on my left pack strap. This is another go-to camera accessory if you spend a lot of time shooting in the outdoors, and Peak Design’s Capture POV clip is compatible with your GoPro and your GoPro Karma Grip for chest mounting. If you opt to grab one of these clips, use coupon code “EXI-PEAKD” for 10% off.
At the moment, I seriously don’t have anything bad to say about the Karma Grip. This little stick has just taken all of my videos to the next level. Or even a few levels. It’s like I just got the raccoon tail in Super Mario and now I can fly over all the bad scary stuff, jump around in the clouds, and gobble up gold coins. That’s pretty much my feeling about how awesome this stabilizer works and how much it is improving my GoPro videos.
So final thoughts, if you have a GoPro, or are in the market for one, start putting your pennies aside and get yourself the Karma Grip! Everyone you subject to watching your POV footage from skiing or biking next Saturday will thank you.
