STABiLGOI remember the first time I used a GoPro in a film. I was making a student documentary about roller derby and I got to strap one of those bad boys on the helmet of a delightful derby girl named Bullet Brains (Andromedolls fan here.) The footage was amazing because of the POV, but it was so shaky that you could barely watch it. Anyone who has ever tried to capture something on a GoPro knows this frustration, but there might be a solution to this problem: a handheld motorized GoPro stabilizer that uses a gyroscopic sensor and gimbal called STABiLGO.

BeSteady_01Ever since the MōVi stepped on the handheld stabilization scene, we’ve seen an incredible swell of gyro-stabilizers coming on the market. The BeSteady One is one of those, but, not only does it give you incredible stability to get great footage (as you’ll see later,) it won’t empty your bank account — not even close. In fact, it’s one of the least expensive that we’ve seen so far. The 4-person design team, based out of the Canary Islands, has finally wrapped development and is ready to launch a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of this cheaper and very capable gyro-stabilization option.
