Hero 8 Black and Karma Grip

I have been using my Hero 5 Black with a Karma Grip for the past few years. I just decided to upgrade to the Hero 8, only to learn that the Hero 8 is not compatible with the Karma Grip! WHY WOULD GOPRO DO THAT?

Re: Hero 8 Black and Karma Grip

The fact the Hero 8's a different size to all previous models means it won't fit the mounting cage

Re: Hero 8 Black and Karma Grip

Perhaps they could design/manufacture a cage that would fit the Hero 8 for the Karma Grip, after all the grip is only a +/- 3 year old product and they seem to have already made it obsolete.

Re: Hero 8 Black and Karma Grip

when the main sales pitch for the Hero 8 is that the stability is that good you don't need a gimbal, how much effort do you think they'll put into making it work with Karma?
