GoPro Releases Karma Grip

GoPro Releases Karma Grip

GoPro’s release of the Karma Grip is bringing image stabilization to a whole other level! It has the ability to capture footage smoother than ever before.

The Karma Grip is a step in the right direction to avoid shaky footage

On Monday GoPro made an announcement that the handheld stabilizer has released in select stores and on GoPro.com for $299 USD. Customers will have to purchase HERO5 and HERO4 Black and Silver Cameras because the Karma Grip does not include a camera.

The Karma Grip can be held or mounted on the body, and controlled entirely via the hand grip. Footage is able to export without having to disconnect the camera. The camera and the grip can charge at the same time.

Come spring 2017 there will be a few new releases and additions to go along with the image stabilizer. The Karma Grip will also be compatible with the hero 5 Session. An extension cord will be a big item to look out for as it will allow cameras to be held or mounted separately from the grip. Users will have the ability to control their camera from a distance.

As Evolve Snow Camps is around the corner it has many of our campers thinking about what they need for the upcoming season. Many ask for new gear in their holiday wish list. The Karma Grip would be a great gift for the holidays and for camp!

Check out the video below to see just how smooth your footage can be.

 

 

 

Mark McMorris is BACK!

Mark McMorris is BACK!

No, not in his video game ‘Infinite Air’, in real life this time! Mark McMorris made his competition return at the World Cup snowboarding Big Air competition in Milan, Italy this past Saturday. It was his first appearance since breaking his femur during a ‘freak accident’ at the Air and Style event in Los Angeles on February 21st. He finished the competition earning himself a bronze medal. Not a bad spot to be in for someone who’s been out of the game for a few months.

Check out some highlights below:

We’re looking forward to watch Mark continue to kill this season! He’s currently on his way to Beijing for Air & Style, which is the test event in Korea for the Olympics Big Air contest. Then he’ll be competition in the Dew Tour in Breckenridge.

Here’s an interview he recently gave about his recovery, video game and future competitions.

Watching Mark’s comeback is making us stoked to get back on the slopes at Mount St. Louis Moonstone in January. If you haven’t registered yet, no worries, there is still time to do so! Head to our register page and fill out a form to sign up today!  If you have any questions give us a call at 416.619.4521.

 

 

Baby Snowboarders Hitting The Slopes

Baby Snowboarders Hitting The Slopes

Searching for a youtube video to brighten up your day? Look no further! These two young snowboarders, Sloan and Johnny will bring an instant smile to your face. They basically started shredding not long after learning to walk.

Below you’ll see Sloan on a snowboard for her first time. For a baby’s first time, she’s totally killing it in skills and in cuteness. If you’re interesting in seeing what Sloan’s up to these days, check out her YouTube channel. HINT: She does more than just snowboard!

 

Next up is Johnny, who is probably one of the coolest babies to hit the slopes. Not only can he simply ride in a line, but he’s on his way to being a pro in the park as well.  With the help of his dad, he’s hitting those rails and riding boxes too. Johnny also has a Youtube channel if you want to see more of his skills.

 

Although Evolve Snow Camps does not provide lessons to babies, it’s awesome to have them learn early on for when its time to sign up for classes. This way, they have already developed the feel of being on a board along with some skills and are ahead of the game.
