GoPro Inc (NASDAQ:GPRO) Karma Grip has debuted and will be available on GoPro’s website and some select stores. It will be priced at $299. The GoPro Karma Grip usually comes bundled with the Karma drone but will now be available separately following a recall of the Karma drone over a battery issue.
The Karma Grip has previously enjoyed popularity as a feature on the Karma quadcopter because it allowed for smooth camera shots.
“It’s so much more than a drone,” the CEO of GoPro, the maker of the GoPro Karma Grip launched recently, said in reference to the Grip.
GoPro Karma Grip launched; a guide
The GoPro Karma Grip connects to the camera’s Micro-HDMI ports and the USB-C directly. Power buttons are on the handle. To change modes of shooting, add video highlight tags, start and stop shooting the buttons to use are also located on the handle. There’s also a tilt-lock button on the handle that shows the status of the battery.
The GoPro karma Grip, however, doesn’t ship with its own camera. It is, however, compatible with the Hero5 Black. For the Hero4 Black and Silver, a harness is needed and that will cost an extra $30. A harness for the Hero5 Session is also slated for release in 2017. The
Ordinarily, the camera points in a forward direction at all times regardless of how the handle is being held. The tilt-lock can, however, be pressed to change the aim of the camera to either below or above the horizon or to maintain it in that angle. Tapping it twice will result in the camera locked on a subject allowing for movement without getting the subject out of shot.
The GoPro Karma Grip launched recently comes with a rechargeable battery which lasts for close to two hours. It, however, takes six hours to get fully charged with a 1 Amp charger though there’s a faster charger that reduces the charging time to under two hours. The camera and the GoPro Karma Grip are charged through a USB-C port.
GoPro stock closed Friday’s trading session having fallen 1.22% to settle at $9.70.
