Snoppa Go – World’s First GoPro Stabilizer with Integrated Control

Editor's Rating
4.9?
Discovered on 2016-06-22

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.

drop you guys an email and message but to no response. great product but there are some issues with it right now. calibration isn't levelled and auto start recording does not work. would like to know any fixes to these issues. there is also an obvious gap between the grip and the unit itself. thanks.

@Wil van Beers
Thanks for your detailed comments.
Remote handle would come a later date as separate moulding is needed.
For cavalry:
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 support@snoppa.com

Review from Kickstarter
I got the Snoppa Go and the Snoppa Cavalry a few days ago (I understood the Remote Handle will come at a later date, hope it won't take too long).
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.

Hey Jay, I noticed that in the Miscellaneous section in the user guide now, thanks clarifying it. Danny, your colleague helped me up with it. I send in a video earlier and he responded immediately. Hopefully, everything is going to be fine. I will surely give it another go. I find the email address support@snoppa.com is not working. Is it just me or others having issue sending email to this account as well? Thanks guys!

Review from Kickstarter
@grav hi grav, thanks for you comment and suggestion. As for panning speed, we had adjusted many times in order to get a good balance between smooth image quality and swift response. The code rate of GoPro is not so high that if horizontally moving Gopro too fast, the image quality will be poor and blurred. If slow down the moving speed a little, the image quality can be better. you can try it. But it's a good idea that to make a fine-tune firmware for different needs, we'd like to try it.
BTW, I just compared Feiyu G4s (I have one at hand), finding that snoppa's panning speed is a little bit faster
Jay
Review from Kickstarter
@Bryan It’s a normal phenomenon that the gimbal will vibrate if there’s no counterweight (camera) mounted (but it won't damage anything including screws) . When you mount the camera, the vibration will go off. Regarding your issue, it was due to the loose screw (loose screw plus vibration without mouning camera)
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.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi! I received my gimbal and it continuously shaking and this caused a screw to dropped. Please assist!

Review from Kickstarter
I like the gimbal and I have used some of the competing products like the Feiyu G4S. One issue that I have is that the horizontal panning in the first mode is slow and not as responsive as I would like it to be. I'm hoping a firmware upgrade will eventually be available for fine tuning how the gimbal responds.

@creator Glad to hear the Snoppa can take some 'beating' ;-)
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.
Jay
Review from Kickstarter
But a heavy strike indeed may make the built-in sensor physically shift, and on that occasion you would find the camera cannot be levelled, even after a off-line calibration ( press p button for 4 times; described in our manual). In this case, our auto-calibration software is needed to correct it. We will put this small tool in download section on our website soon. one of my friends had encountered this accident that when he was shooting on a skateboard, he stumbled so heavily that he fell off his skateboard 3 meters away and struck the gimbal quite hard. He found that the gimbal body was ok(just some exterior scar but no distortion), but the camera was not level. He tried to do off-line calibration but the result remained the same. Then tried to use our auto-calibration software tool (connecting the gimbal to PC), and the snoppa Go retrieved back to level again. Anyway, heavy strikes should always be avoided though the gimbal is metallic and not so fragile.
Jay
Review from Kickstarter
@Maurice Uijlenbroek Thanks a lot for your positive comments. It’s not fragile in my testing and using experience, unless you knock it quite hard or drop it heavily, after all the whole body is metallic. @Youri Nijhoff
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.
Jay
Review from Kickstarter
@Michael M Hero4 can be turned off with snoppaGo button but cannot be turned on (should be turned on manually). Actually we had succeeded to make it turn on Hero4 during development period, but finding that it's not stable due to some issue lies in Hero4 itself (if try 10 times to turn on, 3 or 4 times may fail), so we finally gave it up and disabled auto-turn-on function.
Maurice Uijlenbroek
Review from Kickstarter
I'm pretty impressed by the gimbal. It's my first, so I have nothing to compare it with, but my steps are hardly noticable and movement to left or right is smooth!
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...

Review from Kickstarter
@creator "For the time being, Snoppa Go can just control hero4's recording." <- does this mean you are actively working on a firmware update that would also allow for powering on/off the GoPro as well?
Youri Nijhoff
Review from Kickstarter
Never mind. Just saw that it doesn't work for the black 3 yet.
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
Youri Nijhoff
Review from Kickstarter
Thanks for the info. Does it also work on a hero 3 black?
Jay
Review from Kickstarter
@Maurice Uijlenbroek For the time being, Snoppa Go can just control hero4's recording. Actually Hero 3 is also can be controlled, but we need some time to specially build a new gimbal firmware to realize it. BTW, Gopro power supply from gimbal battery is also available for hero3. "A little bit more space would have been nice", yes, agree. And if need larger movement space for camera, I suggest not hold the handle totally up straight, just lean a bit, like 30 or 45 degree, that would be much suitable and flexible.
Maurice Uijlenbroek
Review from Kickstarter
@creator So the hero3 will not turn on using the "GoPro connector" at the back?
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...
Jay
Review from Kickstarter
@Darren Chay The default color is Gray. And we just finished Red and Black covers which are also pretty cool. and they are exchangeable.
Jay
Review from Kickstarter
@Youri Nijhoff
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)

I really wish that it had been announced before the surveys went out that DHL would be used for shipping... I would have given my office address instead of my P.O. Box (DHL does not deliver to Post Office Boxes). I've paid the customs duties and fees to DHL online, and requested that the package be held for me to pick up, but the tracking page still says that address info is needed and that DHL should be contacted. They are also closed on the weekend, so it will be a few days to sort this out, at least.

Hi, I just got the snoppa. Feels so good. One question, what do i have to do to wake up the gopro if i wake up the snoppa? If i turn the snoppa on the gopro is still dead. And it should go on record when the snoppa is turned on right??

Review from Kickstarter
Surprisingly, I received my package! Turned it on, lasted for about 10 seconds and then the battery went dead (I guess, light went out). So now charging... The feel of the stick is good. Lot of vibration though. Can't wait to really use it.

Although I paid my import duties two days ago, the shipment is since this afternoon 'on hold'. Without any further explanation. So I guess no delivery today or this weekend :-(

BTW, after manufacturing finished last week, we had tested every unit before packaging, in order to make sure every product works fine. But if there's still some unexpected issue found when you receive it, just don't hesitate to let us know, we will check and solve it ASAP: )
also can send us email support@snoppa.com

@Moey Moey Hi, Moey, thanks a lot for your feedback, and let me know that GoPro just released a new firmware V4 yesterday on their website. when I read your feedback one hour ago , I thought it might due to the new firmware version of Gopro, but I just updated my Hero 4 silver to V4, and tried, finding that it still works well. So V4 is also workable. so, I guess, you might forget to connect our “GoPro connector” which is packed in the white accessory box to Hero4.
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:)
