Image stabilisation: Hero 6 EIS vs Karma Grip

Is it normal that electronic image stabilisation of Hero 6 does better job than Karma Grip?

Hero 6 and Karma Grip were mounted on a bike handlebar.

Hero 6 produced smooth video when EIS was turned on and the video is “shaky” when Karma Grip was used for image stabilisation.

There is a sample video at this link. First part is recorded with Hero’s EIS turned on and the second part is done with Karma Grip.

 

Regards,

Leon

Image stabilistaion can not be turned on. There is following message on Hero 6:

 

VIDEO STABILISATION
TEMPORARLY DISABLED
Not available as KARMA is connected.

Yeah, I've noticed this too. When mountain biking I can sometimes get better stabilization from my Hero6 than my Hero5 in the Karma Grip. Try putting the Grip into follow mode ( Double-click the Tilt Lock [ ] button) and it should improve.

Where is "follow" mode documented?

How do I know that Grip is in "follow" mode?

The documentation is in the Quick Start Guide

You'll know your in this mode if the stabilizer adjust to where you direct it instead of trying to stay level to the horizon.
