GoPro starts selling Karma Grip camera stabilizer for $300

In a recent announcement, GoPro has revealed that it has started selling the Karma camera stabilizer grip as a standalone product. The Karma Grip, which was initially packaged by GoPro with the now-recalled Karma drone, is priced at $300 (£250).

In announcing the availability of the Karma Grip camera stabilizer, GoPro has revealed that the grip will, with immediate effect, boast compatibility with the Hero5 Black camera out of the box. As such, the camera stabilizer is ready to use with the Hero5 Black camera.

However, GoPro has also said that an additional $30 will have to be paid by the users of Hero4 Black and Hero4 Silver cameras to get a harness for their cameras. The company also added that the harness for the Hero5 Session camera will likely become available only by "Q2 2017."

According to the details shared by GoPro, the Karma Grip camera stabilizer -- which comes with a built-in rechargeable battery -- has the capability to connect directly to the camera's USB-C and Micro-HDMI ports, both of which are fully integrated to unfold control as well as power to users from the handle.

The handle comes with buttons for users to power and change shooting modes, to start and stop recordings, and to add highlight tags to their videos. The handle also has a tilt-lock button which shows users the battery status.
