GoPro Karma Grip helps you get a handle on camera shakeThe action cam company's motorized gimbal steadies your video for smooth results, handheld or mounted.
[MUSIC] Running with a GoPro camera will get you some pretty unwatchable video. Running your camera on this will make it look like how you saw without all the shake. The GoPro camera brick is a motorized reacts skimble not unlike others out there. Except this one is fully integrated with the company's cameras. Just slide one in, turn it on, and you've got perfectly stable video. It works with the Hero5 Black out of the box, but harnesses for the Hero5 Session, and Hero4 Black and Silver will be available too. Controls on the handle let you switch shooting modes, take photos, and start and stop recordings, lock the camera in place, and if something exciting happens you can add highlight tags. The built-in battery gives you up to one hour and forty-five minutes of stabilization, and you can charge both the grip and the camera, and transfer footage through the USPC port. Go Pro also includes a collar that That let's you attach the grip to GoPro balance. Plus, since the handle and gimbal separate there will be an extension cable letting you mount the stabilizer and handle separately. At $300 it's probably not an impulse purchase. But if you want to extend the usefulness of your GoPro, this will make everything you shoot look so much smoother. [BLANK_AUDIO]
