Hello everybody !
I own a HERO6 with karma grip and I would like with tips to have a video of good quality the most stable possible. I have already done tests while walking in the street, and the video is not perfectly stable, we see the movements. I often film in 2.7K linear and I do not use protune, because I'm not a video pro and I do not want to edit afterwards. I just want beautiful and stable videos. Do you have any advice on the settings of my HERO6 or the use of Grip?

2.7K Linear is fine but you should turn on Protune for the best quality. You don't need to adjust any settings, although lowering the max ISO and putting sharpness on medium generally looks better. Protune video doesn't need editing unless you change the color profile to Flat. With GoPro color on, it's basically the same as with Protune off but you get higher quality with increased bitrate.

For a better understanding of your GoPro camera, I suggest starting off on Abe Kislevitz site. http://abekislevitz.com/?catid=11
Don't just read about you model, but all of the GoPro cameras. Definitely read these:

Okay, I just made some tests with different parameters. And indeed, I'm going to put the sharpness on high because I do not make any modification on a software then. I'm just editing and adding text and that's it !!

I have one last question to ask you. Which FOV do you advise me to spin with the Grip? because in the manual they say filming filming with a narrow fov to have a better stabilization. As I film in 2.7K I can film in linear and superview.
I often film while walking in the street for example.
« PRO TIP: The more narrow the FOV, the greater the effect of Video Stabilization. »

Follow mode: Since the stabilizer by default tries to stay level to the horizon, if you point the gimbal up or down it wont change the direction the stabilizer is looking. Putting it in follow mode forces the gimbal to look wherever you point the handle (good for following someone in a shot or when going down/up hill and you want the camera to look to where you are going)
Normal: Keeps the horizon level and slows left/right panning.
