we are NOT perpetually drunk, but still, the fact remains that videography without the aid of a dolly or similar device, is going to result in a head-spinning Blair Witch Project-style experience. nobody wants that. which is why you need a device like the SteadyWheel Camera Stabilizer. the SteadyWheel Camera Stabilizer takes on a circular approach and builds upon the principle known as the ‘moment of inertia’ which distributes the majority of the device’s weight to its perimeter, thereby achieving a steadier videography experience. with the SteadyWheel, your imaging device, which may include any camera equipped with a standard quarter inch tripod mount, fits onto a tripod mount-integrated horizontal beam that stretches across the lower side of the wheel, and a series of stainless steel weights are strategically placed around the wheel’s ABS body to aid in stabilizing the camera when do swooping and moving shots. apart from the obvious, it has a secondary benefit of providing a more confident handle for your camera. the latter translates to improved frame control, which also ultimately leads back to a more stabilized footage. by choosing ABS as its main material with only necessary weighted stainless steel bits, the SteadyWheel Camera Stabilizer managed to tip the scale at just 1.6 lbs (725 grams) and along with a compact 11.5″ (29 cm) size, makes it totally portable and backpack-friendly. most importantly, it is totally affordable: the SteadyWheel Camera Stabilizer can be yours for a $50 or more pledge on Kickstarter.
