GoPro Karma Grip 2017-2018

MSRP: $299.99

The first thing you’ll notice when using the Karma Grip is how insanely smooth and stable it makes your video footage look. Whether you’re skiing, running, biking or participating in any other kind of active movement, when using the Karma Grip your video will look as though it was captured by an top-level pro cinematographer. Just this past weekend, as aforementioned, I used the stabilizer/grip to shoot video at a friend’s wedding and had many guests ask me about it. I happily let them try it themselves, watching as they shook the grip violently—imitating what might happen if you were running downhill or skiing through choppy snow—trying to outsmart (read: outshake) the device. We played back the footage on the GoPro HERO 5’s touchscreen and “oohs” and “aahs” reverberated. I also distinctly recall one, “holy sh*t, that thing is amazing.” As I expected, the Karma Grip perfectly countered their movements resulting in a fluid, professional-looking video. What truly sets the product apart from its competitors is how perfectly compatible it is with a GoPro camera. When you have your camera locked into the gimbal, you can turn it on and off, switch between modes, mark clips, start and stop recording and more, all by using the controls on the Karma Grip. It is a true extension of the camera. I’ve found this to be especially useful while skiing. — Sarah Sherman, FREESKIER Contributor
