Which camera do the Removu S1 Supports?
The Removu S1 natively supports GoPro Hero 3/3+, Hero 4, Hero 5, Hero 6, Hero 2018, and Hero 7. In addition, it also supports YI 4K/4K+ and Garmin Virb Ultra (mount housing are sold separately).
Can I charge the S1 while operating it?
The S1 cannot be charged while in use.
What is the USB port on the S1 used for?
The USB port is only used for firmware updates, not for charging unfortunately.
What are the 3 modes on the gimbal and what do they do?
Pan Mode – Tilt and roll are locked; camera can pan left and right
Follow Mode – Camera can pan left, right, up, down
Lock Mode – Pan/tilt/roll axis are all locked
When do I use the Balance Weight Cap?
You should install the balance weight cap when using a GoPro BacPac or a GoPro HERO 5 Black, HERO 6, HERO (2018), HERO 7 camera. When the balance weight cap is installed, the gimbal should be in BacPac mode. Press and hold the ‘M’ button for 3 second to enable/disable BacPac mode.
After using the gimbal several times, the horizontal axis seems a little off. What am I supposed to do?
You need to occasionally calibrate the gimbal. Please refer to user’s manual and the video links below on how to calibrate the gimbal.
Do I need to calibrate regularly?
Calibration is not regularly needed. However, if the gimbal seems unbalanced while in use, proceed to calibrate the gimbal.
Why does my camera slowly drift to the left in “Lock” Mode?
At this point, every gimbal out in the market using gyro-sensor and 3-axis motors are having the same occurrences. To balance out the gimbal, please restart the S1, or switch to other modes and go back to Lock Mode again. In addition, performing user calibrations for several times may also help.
Does “rainproof” mean I can use the gimbal underwater?
“Rainproof” means you can use the gimbal in light rain or snow, it CANNOT be submerged underwater. We recommend users to use S1 in rain or snow for less than 10 min.
Why the S1 seems unbalanced if there is temperature difference?
The balance of the motor may falter when used in a climate that has a big change in temperature than the climate it was previously used in. In the case that this happens, please perform a user calibration in the new climate to solve the issue.
Why can’t I control my camera left/right with the remote control in Pan mode?
Controlling the camera left/right can only be used in Lock Mode.
Is there a S1 mount for Sony action cameras and mobile phones?
We have tried to develop S1 mounts for Sony and iPhone. However, we were not able to do so, due to the size of the S1 motors being optimized for GoPro cameras. We are not able to release the mounts for other cameras without a result that footage is stable from vibration or impact while using S1 with the other cameras. This also applies to GoPro Fusion. We hope for your kind understanding.
