Never! GravGrip® V2 operates using its patented hydraulic leveling system. No batteries or charging ever!
GravGrip® V2 cannot handle the weight of a DSLR camera. We plan to release a DSLR compatible GravGrip® in the future. Stay tuned!
GravGrip® was not designed to operate with Point and Shoot cameras although some users have found their Point and Shoot camera to work with GravGrip®. We cannot guarenteed or reccomend this use case.
Extreme temperatures may increase (hot) or decrease (cold) the rotation speed of GravGrip®. This change in performance is neglible. If you do notice a performance change to your GravGrip®, adjust the rotation speed by repositioning the camera mount.
Yes! Although we reccomend a thorough fresh water rinse when GravGrip® comes in contact with salt water. Overtime GravGrip’s bearings may see corrosion when exposed to frequent water contact. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for replacement bearings (a fee as well as shipping and handling expenses may be required by the customer).
No. The physics in which GravGrip® operate will not properly function when submerged in water.
Optional. The swapable/replaceable hydraulic settings that allow for proper GravGrip® function are set to a specific torque ratio. This torque ratio determines the hydraulic stage (Stage 1-4) you are using in your GravGrip®. Each hydraulic setting maintains approximately 100% strength for ~50,000 full rotations. After ~50,000 rotations a hydraulic setting will operate at ~80% strength. This 20% strength reduction can be accounted for by adjusting GravGrip’s rotation speed (adjusting the camera mount position). Replacing the hydraulic setting in a GravGrip® is never neccessary, but the option is available for those interested.
GravGrip® utilizes a GoPro® style connection point. GravGrip® will mount to all GoPro® compatible connection points. For best results, we reccomend mounting GravGrip® to our hand grip or extension pole.
75 mm x 80 mm x 30 mm; 2.95 in. x 3.15 in. x 1.18 in.
GravGrip® is extremely durable and constructed of top grade materials such as glass filled nylon (GravGrip’s body), PC/ABS blend (camera adapters), stainless steel (bearings and weight set), and CNC’d aluminum (camera mount).
