Re: Karma with GoPro 7

Yes WHY does the karma grip disable EIS? Can I remove the USB connector from the karma?

If GoPro continue to avoid my questions i will return the karma and buy yoiur competitors products

Re: Karma with GoPro 7

As as far as removing the USB connector, pretty sure it would stop the camera from receiving input and charge from the Grip. Pretty extreme action to get the EIS with the Grip. It will void your warranty, so can't really recommend it.

A stabilizer from another company might be the best fit for you.

Re: Karma with GoPro 7

Thanks I was thinking that about the warranty but don’t care for the charging option. I have tried the WG2 gimbal on a street motorcycle and the gimbal kept losing orientation at speed whether on the bike or chest mount so wanted to try the karma

Re: Karma with GoPro 7

Has anyone else out there tried the H7B with their Karma drone?

 

All of my equipment - H7B + Karma - has been updated to the latest available firmware. I'm noticing that there are random artefacts and horizontal banding recorded in my footage (in some frames...not all of it). It seems to be whenever the drone is at the maximum end of its range, and at a high bit rate recording (i.e. 4K:30).

 

I know it's not uncommon to see these kinds of artefacts during the real-time view on the controller, especially when at the limit of the radio range, but this is different than what I used to see with the H5B. It's actually recorded by the camera and present in the final footage. I've had several of my shots ruined by this problem, and it means I've got to return to using the H5B on the drone (until I procure a new drone, that is).

 

Really disappointing, considering compatibility with the entire Karma system was a selling point for me.

 

GoPro should be able to resolve this with a firmware update because the camera is great when not used in conjunction with the drone, and the drone works fine with the H5B.

Re: Karma with GoPro 7

Banding can and will happen.

http://blog.mitchcommgroup.com/robert-headrick/what-causes-banding-and-how-do-i-get-rid-of-it

Depending on where the light source is coming from, your Protune settings, how you edit, and the settings you use for export, it can get better ou be much worse. While the HERO7 Black is a pretty amazing camera considering it's size, durability, features, and price, it's going to have a hard time in some environments. It's not a $3,000 - $50,000 professional camera (although sometimes it can look that way.

 

As far as if anyone has used it in the Karma Drone, there are plenty of YouTube videos already out showing it in use with Karma.

In fact, I posted a video two weeks ago where I used the HERO7 Black in Karma
