Karma with GoPro 7

Will GoPro 7 Black be compatable with my Karma Drone or will a Firmware update be made available to allow GP7

to work with the karma ?

Hi @uptowndisco2,

 

Yes it will be compatible on karma system.

Re: Karma with GoPro 7

Do you know if you can use the zoom feature on the camera with the controller?

Hi @supershore73165,

 

Nope, it won't be possible. 

You'll have to move the drone physically or if you have the grip you'll have to step forward or backward.

Re: Karma with GoPro 7

all the firmware updates needed have already been released, it does disable the Hero 7's stabilization once its on the Karma grip/drone

Re: Karma with GoPro 7

Will the karma grip disable the GP7 Hypersmooth and WiFi?

 

IF so, can the USB connector be removed from the karma?

 

Drones have vibration isolation using rubber mounts for the gimbal so I would like the EIS enabled to work with this on vehicles.

Re: Karma with GoPro 7

no afraid the stabilization is disabled with both the Karma grip & drone

Re: Karma with GoPro 7

Can anyone explain why GoPro do this with the stabilisation? Surely using both the Karma AND hypersmooth would produce the best results.

 

I use my Hero7 Black with my Feiju Tech gimbal and I can tell you, the stabilisation just becomes unbeatable.
