Re: When will Hero 5 Session harness for Karma Grip be available to purchase?

Overlooked???   That would be a major oversight.   More than weight is the form factor and port configuration; the Hero5 Session only has one port (USB-C). 

 

All that withstanding it's still to announce a product and lead customers to buy expensive stuff predicated on that.   It's made more bad because they've not addressed the failure to the lotal GoPro community.   I think I'd feel better if there were some official word speking to the situation.

Re: When will Hero 5 Session harness for Karma Grip be available to purchase?

Although it is dissapointing that this deliverable was not met, trust that GoPro are still going to eventually release a Karma harness for the Hero 5 Session... Understandably there were some major setbacks with the Drone, but kudo's to GoPro for going above and beyond for the customers affected by the mishap(s). Please keep supporting your older products, while continuing innovation.

Re: When will Hero 5 Session harness for Karma Grip be available to purchase?

I suggest you get a Feiyu tech WG2 which is directly compatible with the Hero 5 Session.

 

GoPro will never make a Session harness for the Grip unfortunately.

 

The WG2 can be controlled by remote and smartphone and is also waterproof.
