We in new media have enjoyed access to smaller, lighter, less costly equipment as the years have gone by. I remember when my father got our first video camera. It shot at 320 x 240, 30 fps, weighed 17 pounds, sat on your shoulder, and cost a thousand bucks. Today, I carry a small Canon SD130IS and a Nikon DSLR which can crank out HD videos all on its own. The Canon weighs so little that I forget I have it with me half the time.
The downside of gear this small and light is that it’s extremely unstable. Human hands are not known for stability, and gear that light doesn’t weigh enough (and therefore have enough inertia) to self-stabilize. What to do? Well, some folks have come up with very innovative products to do things like stabilize video or enable hand-held distance pictures.
Smartphones have practically replaced cameras in everyday use. Now, we take photos and shoot videos with our mobile devices. However, smartphones usually lack image quality compared to specialized cameras. Plus, most phones don’t have a stabilization system which affects quality badly: pictures get blurry and videos get shaky. That’s why there are special stabilizing devices. The market offers a lot of these accessories and here is review for one of the best Camera Video Stabilizer – Smartphone and Camera Stabilizer.
This is definitely a unique product for a number of reasons. First off all, the stabilizer boasts a compact but extendable design. When folded, it can easily fit in your backpack for travelling (weighs only 450g). But when you want to record something, you pull it out and extend it for as long as you like. In a fully extended position it measures more than 3 feet (around 1m). That way, you can film videos from the most comfortable angles. By the way, this accessory is completely water-resistant which makes it the ideal companion for any traveler.
