    I have a 2 axis wearable gimbal, it only cost $100. It works, and it's so cheap I don't mind if I break it. But not as good as the more expensive ones I'm sure, but it's pretty cool.

    That 2 axis Feiyu sounds like the go to for "normal" people.

    What's the deal with the Gopro Karma handle? They say it doubles as a wearable gimbal, but looks like you're strapping an old 4 D-cell MagLite to your chest. Seems impractical. Maybe not so much?
    If you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it tubeless, I will. I got spare time.

    it's pretty big, haven't tried yet myself but some say it's not as bad as it looks. Gopro is supposed to release an extension cable to allow you to put the grip piece at your backpack or whatever. Saw a youtube review the other day saying karma is pretty much the only one to handle the new hero5 weight but the evo ss should work pretty well with a hero4

    ^ i think andrew uses the Feiyu too - it has broken a couple times, but they replaced it and their wiring has gotten much more beefy in the few versions we have seen

    the karma handle looks awesome- I think we are set to get one any day (they were sold out- much more popular than the gopro drone)
    looks good but yea will need to strap it on somehow

    here's my hope for a late release by gopro, a much smaller grip with no controls that has the battery and a power button to start the karma, so becomes better as wearable and you still have the huge grip to use as a handheld, not sure how big the battery is but seems like this would be doable!

    also wtf does the karma charges the gopro?!?! doesn't make any sense!!!

    Was all primed to use my 20% off code at REI to get a Hero5 Session. Went in, listened to some dumbass read the information on the box to me for about 15 min, then took it up to the register to buy it. Found out Action Cams were excluded from the discount.
    The more I think about:
    1. High cost due in large part to illegal price fixing.
    2. Requisite requirement of a gimbal for quality picture on mountain bike.
    3. High likelihood that this will be used to make one elaborate video, followed by hundreds of hours of collecting raw footage that will then sit in digital memory forever .......... like 99% of all video cameras EVER.
    The more I think my money might be better spent on food, drugs, fuel, lift tickets and hotels. And the more I suspect this is why GoPro got really big really fast and is suddenly dying a relatively quick death as everyone in the world ponders my above mentioned realizations.

    you are so right. I primarly use this for kiting, and the footy just gets old. even when i use it in exotic places.

    I took a night vid and was hoping to brighten it. The typical"editing" apps just give you a filter or two.

    no one posted on this, so here's the solution in gopro studio
