GoPro Karma Grip stabiliser gets UK release date – it’s nearly here

The GoPro Karma Grip goes on sale in the UK starting tomorrow, bringing buttery smooth video capture to shaky-handed Brits across the nation.

GoPro’s handheld (but also wearable) stabilisation grip – the GoPro Karma Grip – is available in the UK starting on December 16. You’ll be able to pick it up from the official GoPro website, as well as select brick-and-mortem retailers. Unfortunately, it’s not cheap; the GoPro Karma Grip will set you back a staggering £249.99.

The positive side is that the GoPro Karma Grip is seriously cool. It will actively stabilise your camera to ensure the smoothest possible video capture at any given time. You’ll also retain full control over the GoPro Hero 5 or Hero 4 Black/Silver camera that you’ve got docked inside. Users will still be able to power the camera on and off, start and stop recording, and ‘HiLight’ tag key moments using the four buttons on the grip. The GoPro Karma Grip also features on-the-fly angle adjustment, as well as a lock-and-release feature for the camera tilt.

The GoPro Karma Grip is also mount-friendly, so you’ll be able to attach it to a GoPro Chest Harness, Seeker Backpack, and some of the other mounts too.

“Karma Grip makes it easy for anyone to capture shake-free, Hollywood-calibre video that is nothing short of stunning,” said Nicholas Woodman, CEO of GoPro.

When you buy the GoPro Karma Grip, you’ll get the following in the box:

  • Karma Grip Handle and Stabiliser
  • Hero 5 Black Harness
  • Mounting Ring for attaching Karma Grip to GoPro wearable mount accessories
  • A USB-C charging cable
  • Tie-down strap and wrist lanyard
  • Grip Case for protection and easy carrying

“Whether you’re holding it in your hand as you chase your kids around the house or wearing it on your chest as you ski, hike or bike, Karma Grip makes ordinary shots look extraordinary,” added Woodman.
