    WTB: GoPro Hero 5/6 Black + gimbal

    So I broke my feiyutech gimbal last season tomahawking at Schweitzer and am now looking for a replacement. Im not looking to go down the feiyutech road again due to durability reasons.

    I also need to upgrade from the Hero 4 to something that can shoot 1080 at 120fps, so the hero 5 or 6 black would be perfect.

    If anyone happens to be selling either of those cameras let me know, an added bonus would be a Karma Gimbal or a Karma Drone package. For the camera, depending on the model, Im looking to spend no higher than $150. For the gimbal package I would spend $200, drone package around $400? Those are approximate prices based off of what eBay is like right now.

    So if youve got a new camera coming for christmas, hook me up. If you need money to buy a special someone something new, let me know.


    obrigado.

    Just get a GoPro 7. The stabilizer is better than a gimbal. $250 on eBay.

    I have a 7 I would sell for $250

    Bought it when I needed to shoot stabilized video plus audio which you canít do on the karma gimbal due to the noise.

    is the stabilized video from gopro 7 really that much better. Is it a 7 black? What are some of the specs for what it can shoot at?

    The 7 does some crazy digital stabilization I would go that route if I were you.

    You can use Hypersmooth in all of the resolutions (720, 1080, 4K) up to 60 FPS as long as youíre in 16:9. Not available if youíre shooting 4:3.

    So no 120 fps with hyper smooth? Thatís sort of a bummer for slowmo which the hyper smooth is perfect for.

    In my experience you need less stabilization in slow mo cause the frame rate reduces the appearance of shake. Also,I think you can do normal stabilization at 120 but not hypersmooth.

    I would say check eBay. There are some relatively cheap karmas going right now.

    Will get back to ya. Still looking for a gimbal though. Or a hero 7 black since the stabilization is so good.

    Gimbal is still better than on board stabilization I understand. I haven't tried it.

    This dude is selling a nice one:

    Have you considered 360 cameras? I grabbed myself brand new Rylo at $150 and there is no need for gimbal or any sort of stabilization. My only con is poor quality in low light conditions which is not that often when you film outdoors.

    I feel like itís pretty common to run into lowlight ski days...especially in Washington. I also feel no need to deal with 360 footage, I donít mind how normal videos shoot and being able to edit videos into movies, not just have 360 shots. I appreciate the idea though.

    Iím searching for a karma GoPro package on eBay and CL. It looks like I can get a hero 5 black with karma for around $250. Iíve had a feiyutech before and it broke after a tomahawk crash, which is fair enough, but I am not eager to buy another. They seem sort of flimsy.

    The gimbal is dope. PITA to carry around, but otherwise best results. Nothing beats the fast/accurate gimbal panning from ski chesty shots or handheld. You just can't get that with the image stabilization. And no, it does not make background noise like the others.

    The GoPro Karma. Like I said, it is a PITA to carry skiing, but for filming others skiing or if you don't mind a setup with the extension cord-to-backpack combo, then the Karma gets the best result. If chest, get the stuntman chesty. The extension cord goes nicely to a pant pocket or backpack.
    But it is stuck on your chest, so don't crash!

    You have probably seen the videos on youtube

    It really works that well. Not just anti-shake but it adjusts to every core body movement to maintain the composure.

    But ... it is a PITA to carry on a chesty and bulky compared to on board stabilization.
