World's first rainproof 3-axis gimbal for GoPro action cameras

The Removu S1 is a brand new, rainproof 3-axis stabilising gimbal that’s designed for use with GoPro’s Hero3, Hero4, Hero5 and Session cameras for shooting stable action film footage. It’s said to be the world’s first rainproof 3-axis gimbal for use with GoPros and it features a detachable handgrip, a removable battery, wireless remote control and is fully compatible with the GoPro range of helmet, body and bike mounts.

The Removu S1 is said to deliver extremely stable and vibration free footage. The 3-axis stabilisation is manufactured with brushless DC motors and rotary sensors, thus removing unwanted movements and helping to give footage a smooth look.

Water resistance
The motors and body of the Removu S1 unit are specifically designed to be water resistant. So whether your using the waterproof GoPro Hero5 or the S1’s rainproof housing for GoPro’s 3 or 4 cameras, you can keep shooting through whatever nature can throw at you!

Three control modes
The Removu S1 has three main control modes – Pan, Follow and Lock. In Pan mode the camera will smoothly follow your panning motion but cancel out any pitch or roll movements. In Follow mode the camera will follow the direction the S1 unit is facing; whether that be left, right, up or down.
In Lock mode the camera is locked into its current position and maintains that orientation regardless of how the S1 is moved.

Wireless control
The Removu S1 comes equipped with a detachable wireless joystick remote control, which allows you to control the angle of the camera and switch between the different modes on the gimbal using a 5-way jog key on the wireless remote. Removing the handgrip from the body transforms the Removu S1 into mountable gimbal and you can attach the main gimbal body to any GoPro compatible mounting system.

Power & cards
The Removu S1 has a battery life of three to five hours and when the battery does run low, you can simply swap it out for a fully charged spare. There are also two micro SD slots in the handle cap so you’ll be able to capture every second of your adventure.
