Photographers and cinematographers looking for a convenient way to stabilise their DSLR camera or camcorder might be interested in the new Ghost camera stabilizer which has been created by Jesse Spaulding and has just launched on the Kickstarter crowdfunding website.
Currently Steadicam rigs are one of the only products on the market that allow for these professional shots, but they are expensive and take years of operating to master, says The Ghost camera stabilizer creator. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Ghost camera stabilizer project and see it in action.
“The Ghost camera stabilizer is a robotic camera stabilizing rig programmed to stay level. This revolutionary camera rig couldn’t make smooth filming any easier. It is very lightweight, durable, and so easy to use that even a child can operate it. It is primarily made out of carbon fiber to minimize weight and withstand the abuse of field use.
The Ghost camera stabilizer electronics are simple with two silent brushless motors and a pre-programmed control board. Just attach the battery, turn it on, and track your subject to get that cinematically smooth footage.”
The Ghost camera stabilizer project is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think Ghost is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Ghost become a reality.
