GoPro develops new modular gimbal camera system

GoPro develops new modular gimbal camera system

[16:19 thu,17.March 2022   by ]    

Although GoPro&s Hero action cams, which have several improvements every generation, already have very good integrated electronic HyperSmooth image stabilization, suitable (one-handed) gimbals from other manufacturers are often used to compensate for the larger image shakes that occur in many action shots.

GoPro gimbal camera module

GoPro had its together with its failed Karma drone launched mini-gimbal Karma Grip, yes buried after a short time again. GoPro apparently does not want to leave this market entirely to other manufacturers and is therefore now developing an integrated modular gimbal camera similar to the DJI Pocket 2.

GoPro controller module

A corresponding US patent was discovered by Techradar, which shows, among other things, a modular gimbal camera consisting of a controller that can be held with one hand (similar to a smartphone held vertically) including its own screen and control button and battery compartment, as well as a second element, a small 3-axis gimbal including an integrated camera, which can be coupled with the first.

The integrated display is relatively small, which is why the patent refers to the wireless preview option via smartphone including app. According to the patent, GoPro wants to combine an electronic image stabilization in the camera with a mechanical one through the gimbal for a better overall performance and better energy efficiency - which should succeed better than in other systems since both work closely together.

GoPro Gimbal Camera Module plus Controller

The new model is reminiscent of GoPro&s modular Karma drone system, which consisted of the Karma drone, the Karma stabilizer as well as the Karma Grip, plus a GoPro Hero camera. There, the 3-axis stabilizer could be used together with the drone as well as - by means of the grip - by hand. In the new system, GoPro has now separated the camera mode including stabilizer from the control module including batteries. Thus, the camera gimbal module could also be used together in a new GoPro drone, for example (a use scenario that is also mentioned in the patent).

The gimbal camera should also be able to track and follow objects - either by beacon or by visual tracking using object recognition as with DJI&s ActiveTrack. There is also talk of voice control for a selfie mode, for example. New products based on this patent could appear as early as 2022, because GoPro&s CEO Nick Woodman has promised two more new camera models for the end of 2022 in addition to the Hero and Max, and then even more innovations for the following year.
