FeiyuTech G5 vs FeiyuTech G6 vs GoPro Karma Grip | Which Gimbal Has The Best Stabilization

Published

on

In this head to head comparison video we compare the quality of stabilization of the Karma Grip, FeiyuTech G5 and the new FeiyuTech G6 to see which GoPro gimbal can provide the smoothest footage. Now I would like to point out that this is not a scientific test as there are many factors that can affect the results, but it can give us a good general idea of the stabilization performance of each gimbal. To keep things fair in this comparison video I tried to keep things similar for every pass. I walked the same path, same speed in a normal way I would walk when filming with a gimbal. In the video I play all the footage side by side to get a visual feel of which one is smoothest. I then play the footage side by side again but this time I speed up the content by 600%. Speeding up the footage exaggerates the jitter and imperfections and can help identify the smoothest GoPro gimbal.

Now after going over the footage numerous times I would have to say when it comes to the gimbal that has the best stabilization they are all pretty close. If I had to pick one I would say the G6 is a slight bit smoother. Now when it comes to features that is a whole different story. The FeiyuTech gimbals are much better suited to my needs when it comes to features and usability.

Updated 2018 GoPro Chesty Mount

Published

on

In this video are taking a closer look at the new and updated 2018 GoPro Chesty. GoPro quietly released several new products this summer including and updated seeker backpack, silicon cases and a new updated chest mount. The design is quite different and now has a large back plate. I find it has a very similar design to the chest mount that is included when you buy the Seeker backpack. I think this is to help provide a more stable platform for this who like to mount gimbals when mountain biking. The larger chest plate should help prevent the gimbal from bouncing around as much.

This video is more of a “closer look” style video mainly due to the fact that there is not a lot of information or photos on the GoPro website about this new updated chest mount and some people may want to have a better look at it before they decide if it is worthwhile to upgrade.

The Best Case For Your GoPro

Published

on

Over the years I have used and reviewed many styles of GoPro storage cases, some hard shell and some soft. I always found the same problem with them and that is they are for the most part never customizable. This can be a big issue especial when you think that each and every one of us uses different gear and accessories and that makes it difficult to find a case that is suitable. Not to mention if you want to carry a gimbal in your kit…forget it. Most cases come with pre-cut inserts with spots for GoPro’s and various gear, many case come with 2 or 3 spots for cameras. But what if you only own one camera, that space is now wasted.

I recently came across this case by BUBM and instantly knew it was the perfect case for me. This case takes a different approach and instead of pre-cut foam it has a series of straps and pocket in different sizes. This allows you to securely pack you gear in what ever configuration that makes the most sense to you. You can pack just one GoPro or ten if you wish, You can even pack a gimbal and even a small extension pole. BUBM offers the case in two sizes a medium and large. They even offer the cases in three different colors (blue, black and grey). This case is durable and has a nice build quality, it’s a soft-shelled case but very rigid to help give you some crush protection. I have booth the medium and large version so I can pack depending on how much gear I need to take and I have been extremely pleased with them.

The other nice thing about this style of case is that it’s not design for specific GoPro’s. If you upgrade cameras down the road you know your case will work if the form factor changes. Watch our video review below.
