The @gravgrip is a battery free hydraulic camera stabilizer for your smartphone and action camera!
Who knew the same tech you’d find in your car’s glove-box could also help make your video content better?! The GravGrip’s inspiration comes from an unlikely place… the hydraulics found in the door of a car glove-box. Hydraulic springs have the ability to dampen or smoothen out sudden movements (which is why your glove box opens so smoothly), and if appropriated well, could also potentially be used to make your smartphone or GoPro videos incredibly shake-free… without any batteries or 3-axis motors.
The GravGrip is a brilliantly cost-effective professional stabilizer that works without batteries or motors, and is completely waterproof. My first thought was that the GravGrip used some sort of newfangled gyroscope, but running a gyroscope without energy (batteries) would be near impossible. Instead, the GravGrip makes innovative use of a hydraulic axis that helps cancel out your hand’s movements to give you perfectly stabilized videos. The portable, handheld device comes compatible with phones as well as action cameras, and uses a set of weights to help provide counter-balance while capturing. The mechanical stabilizer allows you to even control the speed of stabilization, giving you control over whether the camera stays exactly in place, or gently pans and rotates to compensate for your movement, creating smooth videos with an almost gliding movement.

En toen mocht ik afgelopen week ineens 5 dagen filmen in Zuid-Frankrijk. Het was een particulier project en ik kan er verder weinig over delen...maar het was geweldig! Prachtige locaties, fijne mensen, snelle auto’s, zon, zee, leuke activiteiten, heerlijk eten en drinken...een aaneenschakeling van belevingen. En lekker gespeeld met mijn drone. Hard gewerkt maar het voelde soms ook een beetje als vakantie ☀️⠀
Zo, en dan ga ik nu maar eens zo’n 15 uur aan beeld- materiaal editen. We zijn weer aan het werk mensen! 👏🏼
