Gimbal stabilizers can be used to help produce smooth, high-quality video. However, inexpensive gimbals typically use heavy counterweights for stabilization, making them difficult to carry around, while more expensive models utilize precision electronics. A happy medium may soon be on the market; the California-based company, Neuvison, has announced their Kickstarter for the AutoSteady, an affordable electronic 3-axis gimbal stabilizer.
The AutoSteady is designed to work with smartphones and, with an additional adapter, GoPro action cameras. The stabilizer can tilt, roll, and pan to ensure your video remains smooth as you grip the unit by its ergonomic rubberized handle. A lithium-polymer battery ensures that you can continue shooting up to two hours on a single charge.
