Designed for GoPro, it is the first hand-held gimbal with integrated controls to simultaneously control GoPro and the gimbal. Using the Snoppa Go will completely transform your videos and change the way you capture memorable scenes and action sports forever. With Snoppa Go you can hold, control, and operate your GoPro with one hand. Now you can follow any action and capture smooth shots with ease. The Snoppa Go uses 3 brushless motors and advanced sensors to keep your camera level and stable during any kind of activity. The advanced 3-axis stabilization technology instantly compensates and auto-balances for vibrations, arm shake, and body movement. It allows you to follow a subject or capture an action scene perfectly, resulting in video footage that is stable across any plane of motion that perfectly captures the action.
Snoppa Go – World’s First GoPro Stabilizer with Integrated Control
I discovered your weblog website on google and check a couple of of your early posts. Proceed to keep up the very good operate. I simply additional up your RSS feed to my MSN News Reader. In search of ahead to studying extra from you afterward!…
It does not fit GoPro Hero 5 Black.
Thanks for your detailed comments.
Remote handle would come a later date as separate moulding is needed.
the bottom clamp fixation issue can be improve.
for Cavalry, you can adjust camera shooting angle directly by hand, which can be more easy when riding a bike (remote control is another way). So you don’t need to short press the button to fix another position. We’ll release a manual and video soon.
We haven’t test it with a backpack attached, thanks for this feedback, we will solve it with firmware update, as well as for "sharp turn". (but as I mentioned in former answers, we set the turning speed not so fast on purpose. Gopro doesn't have a high code rate, and if panning too fast, the video would be blurred obviousely. so normally a slower buffer can be more smooth and suitable)
As for hard carry case, we’ll design one later (after finishing our smartphone gimbal next month.)
If there’s any suggestions or problems, you can also send to email@example.com
Had to pay 43 euro's import tax but delivery went smooth.
I haven't seen much of a review on the Cavalry so far, so I'll put my focus on it:
Mounting looks very good, but after an few rides the rubber on the bottom clamp had shifted 0.5 cm so a better fixation is advised on the next version.
With only one usb port, one led indicator and one button operating the gimbal should be pretty self explanatory; but I would have liked some kind of a manual.
It looks like a long press on the button will turn on/off the gimbal and (when on) a short press will put the gimbal in a calibration mode. You can then point the camera in the desired direction and give another short press to fix the position.
Using the gimbal with a Hero 4 Black with a backpack will make the gimbal loose this default position easily on a bumpy road (the camera angle drops down because is becomes too front-heavy).
Without a backpack the position keeps better but not perfect either. The gimbal tends to not completely return to its position after a sharp turn.
So don't use a backpack but use the connector which will give a batterylife of about 85 minutes.
No joystick, no three shooting modes.
I do hope it will work with the remote handle so I can use my bike as a "tripod", aim with the remote and use my iPhone to preview and control the GoPro. Mounting the Cavalry (but also the standard Snoppa Go) means using screws and small fragile looking camera clip. I'm afraid they will easily get lost and the screws are also a bit small for larger fingersizes. Also something to consider for redesign on the next version. I don't have two GoPro's so I did the same track twice, once with my fixed mount and once with the Cavalry: wow ... it works great.
During the ride I thought it took too long for the Cavalry to return to the point of origin and was worried this would reduce the dynamics of an action shot when cornering. Indeed the difference was obvious between the two recordings, but not as much as I feared. Also this way of filming is more used when riding along with the action that is to be filmed. Not so much to film from the action-bike itself. I read and agree with the remarks on keeping the gimbal safely stored. I feel like some sort of hard carry case would be prefered.
BTW, I just compared Feiyu G4s (I have one at hand), finding that snoppa's panning speed is a little bit faster
we are not sure if it was caused by assembly line or by transport, or by the screw quality itself. I've never met this before. my colleague will contact you for more details which could help us to find issue and improve. Thanks a lot for your feedback, and sorry about the loose screw you met with.
Couldn't take the Snoppa out today because of the rain, but hopefully I can next weekend. Thank you for the explanation and I can't wait to see the firmware for the Hero3.
In my own way when I took it outdoors, I just insert the gimbal into the soft carrying bag and directly packed it into my backpack without any other protective measures. So far, I haven’t encountered any problems when I roughly pack it in this way for at least 4 months, even in a long trip. But I agree that a hard protective case can be better, we will design one soon. Just in my own outdoor shooting experience, the soft bag is quite enough for most occasions.
Can't wait for the Hero3 black firmware to finish, that means less thinking and immediately shooting instead of turning the gopro on... @creator Like Youri Nijhoff asked: is it fragile? When I turn it off, it just collapsed by the force of gravity. Also, when putting it in the bag or reesting on a table, it leans on the gimbals. Just completely out of context: I noticed someone in the Netherlands is already trying to sell the Snoppa and asks 300 euro...
How fragile is the gimbal. Because there isn't a protective case around it
Can it be moved in a backpack or does it have to be protected in some kind of case
Also, with the GoPro connector at the back, it just hits one of the gimbal-drives when turning.A little bit more space would have been nice.
I have to learn the various controls and practice now...
1. connect "GoPro connector" into the socket on the back of hero4
2. turn on hero4 manually (there would be several seconds time lapse)
3. turn on snoppaGo (short press P + press&hold P )
4. you'll find hero4 starts to record automatically (there might be several seconds time lapse when hero 4 first time to be turned on)
during working, press P button to stop & start recording one more point: if there's no TF card inside hero4, the auto recording will not work for sure. If the auto recording still doesn't work , just let us know. (in that case, perhaps something wrong with the backside connector. but we had tested every connector before packing to make sure all of them were ok)
also can send us email firstname.lastname@example.org
1. connect the “Gopro connector” on the back of the hero4
2. turn on Hero 4 manually
3. turn on the gimbal, and hero 4 will start to record automatically. (there might be 2 or 3 seconds time-lapse when the hero is first time to be turned on) Due to some technical issue lie in Gopro hero4 itself, we disabled auto-turn-on function (just can be auto-turn-off). that means Hero4 should be turned on manually. I suggest to spend a little time to read our manual first. Later we will release a short video on how to use it, which can be easier than reading manual:)
