GoPro Karma Grip Handle: Image Stabilizer

Posted on 14 December 2016 Tags: Feature, Mobile Gizmos

GoPro Karma Grip is an electronic image stabilizer which can be found on the company’s Karma drone plus. It is powered by batteries and can be directly connected to the Micro-HDMI and camera’s USB-C, two of which are entirely integrated to provide users both the power and control from the handle.

The GoPro Karma Grip allows to take cinema-quality, professional footage regardless of where it was shot. GoPro mounts to click amazing angles thanks to the built-in camera controls that facilitate in changing modes, starting and stopping recording, turn the power on and off, and adding HiLight tags.


  • Karma Grip can be either worn on the body or held in the hand to allow the user to capture shake-free and
    smooth videos and images
  • GoPro and Karma Grip work in sync. The two can be charged at the same time, and the footage can also be
    offloaded without the need to unmount the camera
  • Inbuilt camera controls
  • An extended battery lifespan of 1 hour and 45 minutes
  • Recharges about 70% faster when charged with the optional GoPro Supercharger
  • Compatible with Hero4 Silver, Hero4 Black, Hero5 Black, Hero5 Session

Available for $299, the Karma Grip comes without a camera, and users have to provide their own. It also lacks tilt controls or pan, which means the Grip cannot stand on its own and the tripod mount is also absent on the handle. Instead, it uses a mounting ring that slides between the stabilizer sections and the handle.

The metal collar can also be attached to any GoPro mount or other third-party mounts that make use of GoPro Connectors. GoPro also has extension cable that links the handle with the stabilizer, enabling users to mount the stabilizer on a helmet, for instance, when mounting the handle on the backpack or body for control and power.

Overall, the GoPro Karma Grip is a good investment for $300.
