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.

Hero 7 Black Now Includes A Photo Timer

Published

on

One little talked about feature that is included with the new GoPro Hero 7 Black is the addition of a photo timer. It is a small feature but a very important and welcome addition. In the past, if you wanted to get a shot of yourself you would have to set the GoPro to time-lapse mode, grab some frames and then choose the one you wanted. With the addition of voice commands with the Hero 5 series, you could shout at the GoPro to take a photo. This worked not to bad, however sometimes in noisy environments it did not always work, not to mention looking foolish in certain situations.

With the Hero 7 Black when in photo mode you will notice a new photo timer icon on the left side of the screen. You can select it and set a delay of either 3 seconds or 10 seconds. After the shutter button is pressed a countdown animation and audible beeps indicate when the photo will be taken. Such a simple but important feature. Watch our video demonstration of the new Hero 7 Black photo timer in action.
