Supraflux has reached the goal of its latest Kickstarter campaign, consisting of a “revolutionizing” video camera stabilizer.
Kickstarter is the most popular crowded-funding platform on the internet. So many interesting projects have been born with the help of this website and many more will definitely be brought to life in the future.
Supraflux will keep your videos steady with Video Camera Stabilizer’s help
The latest photography-related project to reach its goal consists of a camera accessory, which will ensure that film makers will capture “super-smooth footage”. It is called the Supraflux Video Camera Stabilizer and it does exactly what its name suggests.
Movie makers are aware that very stable videos are hard to obtain. A mount to ensure steady videos is very expensive and not too portable. However, this Massachusetts-based company is looking to change all of that with its new stabilizer.
Filming will become easier thanks to the “Supraflux Stabilizer with The Brake”. It’s an ingenious piece of design which allows movie makers to stabilize a camera by locking one of the mount’s axis. However, the pair of other axes will keep on floating freely, in order to balance the camera.
Professional-looking movies thanks to a high-tech system
Movies taken with the help of this device will look like they have been captured with a professional camera. The system allows the users to turn the camera at any given time and videos will no longer appear to shiver, like they would be without a stabilizer.
The accessory is made out of “aviation-grade” aluminum and anti-friction bearings to keep the camera in place. The developers say that photographers will find it very easy to balance the camera using the stabilizer’s micro-adjustment knobs.
The Supraflux Video Camera Stabilizer can handle all types of cameras, such as mirrorless, DSLR, compact, bridge, GoPro shooters, and even a broad range of smartphones. The system will support all cameras with a weight range between 0.25 and 10lbs.
A fully-functional prototype is available, as well as the quotes from manufacturers, meaning that the engineers only need the cash to start mass-producing their video stabilizer.
Supraflux raised the money in a couple of days
At the time of writing this article, Supraflux reached its goal of $27,000, but it can still receive money for a period of 41 days. It is worth noting that the project has been launched just a couple of days ago. So far, $31,671 have been raised with 42 days to go.
The first 100 backers who pledge $495 will receive a stabilizer, just like people who pledge $595. This is a good offer, considering the fact that Supraflux’ accessory will retail for $745.
The company is expected to ship the Video Camera Stabilizer by the end of August 2013.
