Attaching Karma gimbal changes camera settings

Not sure if this belongs here or in the Karma threads, but does anyone else experience their camera's settings being changed when the camera is connected to the Karma Gimbal? I usualy shoot in 2.7k 60FPS Wide and every time I plug my Hero 5 into the Karma Gimbal it get's changed to 1080P 30FPS Linear.

 

Supper annoying to have to reset the values everytime.

 

Is it just me, does anyone else have the issue and hopefully a fix? Thanks!

Re: Attaching Karma gimbal changes camera settings

@erikphanson This is definitely not an expected behavior for the Karma Grip. Has this always been the case? Does it also happen with other settings, say other resolution for video or other modes like photo? This could be an issue with the firmware. Are your Grip's and camera's firmware updated? If you have not tried it yet, you can check the links below for guide on dong firmware update:
