    GoPro Karma Grip

    So far my GoPro grip has been working flawlessly for me. I have used it several times without any issues operation wise, I will have to say that it is a bit tricky to get the GoPro inserted the 1st couple times without applying pressure but after the 1st couple times you get the feel of how it snaps in. I know that there has been reported audio issues with the GoPro Grip but I have not experienced any but I must say there is a bit of muffled sound but all the videos I do are to music anyway but that's how I use mine your experience may be different. One issue is the price if you shop around there are many gimbals out there but I bit the bullet and bought the GoPro Karma Grip because it was made for my GoPro there are plenty of gimbals out there but many have to be modified or added accessories need to be purchased to use the GoPro.... but the price is high! Good luck in your selection!

    Great piece of hardware to use with your Gopro, eliminates most/all of the jerkiness of filming while moving. I bought a backpack strap attachment and wore it facing forwards and had no major issues. The battery life is solid, on its own about 2 hours, if you have a good powerbank it'll probably last you a good 6+ hours. It also keeps your gopro charged, so once it dies, you lose the stabilizer but still have a fully charged gopro. Caveat: I only used it while walking/hiking, so I can't vouch for how it does at high speeds. Only 3 negatives: 1) $300 is super pricey for an accessory. 2) When wearing it, the buttons are obscured from view, and a little hard to see (you'll quickly learn to find them by feel.) 3) Its not water resistant, so it can't go everywhere a GoPro goes.

    The Go Pro Karma Grip takes Go Pro cameras to a whole new level of usage. While the Go Pro was always great for strapping to sports equipment or high speed vehicles, it has never excelled as a daily camcorder or a Vlog camera. However, with the help of the Karma Grip, the new Go Pro Hero 6 Black has walked into a whole building full of doors waiting to be opened. While I can say this product has minor flaws (i.e.- occasional initialization failures when turning grip and camera on simultaneously, and limited range of motion on gimbal), I can also say it's the best Go Pro accessory I have purchased so far. Finally Go Pro is getting close to a all-in-one camera solution for professionals and enthusiasts alike!

    I think mine was a dud

    I want to start off by saying that my Karma was defective. It did not retain a charge and never did work as intended. Manufacturing defects happen so I am not faulting the grip on this review for this issue. What is a universal problem is that when properly installed on a Hero5 or Hero6, this grip interferes dramatically with the microphone function of the camera rendering poor audio quality. You cannot get around this because the grip requires use of the ports so you can't add an external Mic either. If you care about audio quality and have a Hero5 or Hero6, don't buy this. With a Hero4, it works perfectly.

    Second time purchasing and returning

    First time I purchased this I was looking for some great steady video shots, but lack of a microphone input turned me off as the sound quality of the GoPro is garbage thanks to the frame it sits in. Second time I thought I'd give it another try, maybe use for vlogging and some b-roll footage after tinkering with microphone settings. I just can't get over the sound quality so returned it again... if you are using this for strictly B-Roll footage where you won't be using the audio then this is amazing! I just couldn't get past the horrible sound quality.

    As a YouTuber,I almost gave this a 4* because I had problems with my gopro film and the audio. At first there was zero audio and then white noise. Then I realized I needed to update my gopro. Once all my gopro equipment was updated I have zero problems and I love my Karma Grip. I think my favorite part about the grip is that it charges your gopro while filming. There's no need for me to use my spare battery. I love the steadiness and cinematic film that it shoots in.

    Great Build, But Overpriced

    As with all GoPro products, you can feel the build quality and definitely tell a difference from other brands. However, given the fact this doesn't telescope nor is it waterproof, nor does it come with a wrist strap--I simply think it's not worth the money. The smooth gimbal functionality is great but as a normal amateur GoPro enthusiast, I wasn't thrilled because of the price tag.

    Good gimble

    It's very good gimble and improves the stability of videos perfectly. My only complain is that it charges the GoPro while using the gimble, which means that the gimble will stop working before the camera runs out of juice. I had to do a 90 min shoot and the gimble ran out of battery; luckily I had a QC battery pack and was able to charge and use the gimble at the same time.

    This is an awesome gimbal by GoPro. There is 2 things they cab improve. 1. The battery last the most 1:45. One if the reasons us because is charging the camera at the same time. Something they can perfect. They should give us the option to let the gimbal charge the camera when we want or after certain percentage. Making the battery replaceable would work as well. 2. the gimbal covers half of the camera screen. Other than that. Its great

    We bought this for our trip to The DR Punta Cana and was a waste of time trying to get it to work. We never even used it because it would work. We called manufacturer and sent us a replacement for the harness only and still it didn’t do any effect. We returned and got a new one, but just having to go through all that was not wroth the money.

    Awesome image stabilization

    This thing is great for action shots which look much better with the image stabilization it provides. Terrible for sound, but GoPro’s aren’t known for their sound capturing quality. Don’t forget to buy a harness if you aren’t lucky enough to have a Hero 5, (FYI: The harness is the thing GoPro is calling the case which the camera actually plugs into at the end of this stick.)

    This is the first stabilizer I have purchased. The handle has ergonomic feel, which is very comfortable. It fully recharged my Hero Silver 4 in less than 30 minutes. So far, after multiple uses, the battery has lasted over 3 hours. The only downside for Hero 4 users is that the case that has to be purchased separately does not provide total protection for the camera

    I'd love to give this a 5-star review, I really would, After ensuring that the gimble and GoPro6 had the latest firmware, I was disappointed with the consistency in its performance. Several times the camera would not respond to the control functions on the gimble. Resetting both devices didn't resolve it. When it worked, it worked well.

    Watch some youtube reviews and tips on getting this set up. making sure you update your phone app if you want to use in conjunction with your phone screen. Trying to view on just the go pro can be challenging. But using your phone as a screen is pretty easy once you are all updated with go pro app.

    When I bought my go pro, I loved that I could take it anywhere, by air, land, or sea. However a lot of the footage was too shaky and therefore unusable. This solved all my problems. It works great and attaches to all my other mounts.

    This stabilizer is on the expensive side, but after using it, I have been extremely satisfied with the purchase. The stabilization is great for both active applications, as well as recording more stationary video where shaky hands can produce poor quality.

    This is a must have. My build pro would not be the same without this device. It enables me to charge my GoPro and have life on it along with having stability during recording. This device stabilizes the images in tough situations and the videos, out perfect every time.

    This is a must if you own a gopro. The gimbal works like a charm. There is a slight learning curve when trying to use the tilt button, but once you get used to it everything is fantastic. A bit pricey but I feel it's worth it. Especially since it has a remote control feature.

    The Karma Grip is a fantastic piece of machinery. It stabilizes the GoPro camera incredibly well, even when driving on rocky terrain. It really helps to give your footage a cinematic-like look. I highly recommend it for those looking to help improve the quality of their videos.

    This gadget is just the right size, the video is incredibly smooth even when running. Once you get used to the controls it becomes second nature and you start getting more creative on your videos. I love it!
