I’ve been addicted to crowdfunding lately, as you’ve probably saw my older post on this iPhone prime-lens, large sensor project I got involved in..
There are just so many cool innovations and products out there that think outside the box and solves a lot of photo/video enthusiast’s hardware wishes that the big companies can’t do, and today, I’d like to show you the Gravity One video stabilizer system that virtually eliminates the motion jerking of cameras due to weight and gravity issues.
Watch the promo and intro video here.
Gravity One features
- G-1 is an very small lightweight external 2 axis Gimbal (pan axis is the EasyRig Cord).
- It surrounds the camera externally in a very clever way so the operator can use the camera from shoulder to low mode.
- It includes x/y positioning stages that enables you to perfectly balance the camera in 3 axis.
- Its free float full bearing pivot supported gimbal in all crucial axis points.
- It weights approx. 1800 grams and can fully support cameras up to 17 Kg or around 38 pounds.
- It eliminates completely the pendulum effect created from the cord in all Easyrig style body mounts.
- It allows the operator now to tilt freely with out effort +/- 60 degrees (that is approx. since there is always a little difference in camera height).
- It allows the operator to freely roll the camera 30 degrees CCW, and 60 degrees CW.
- Depending on the trim balancing tuning of the camera (perfect or a little bottom heavy) the camera will remain at all given tilting angles or rolling angles effortlessly, and the drag pendulum effect will completely be eliminated.
- For moves being done without hands on camera, it produces very stable smooth footage, something that cannot be done without the G-1.
You can go to Indiegogo to support or buy this cool Gravity One rig. If you’re a professional videographer, I think it’s a steal for what it can do.
