Last year, the Smoovie stabilizer launched on Kickstarter promising smartphone and GoPro users the ability to shoot super-smooth video thanks to its magnetic gimbal. Now, after shipping that product to backers, the team behind it is back with the MiniRig, which adds lighting and audio features, along with improved stabilization.
Like its predecessor, the MiniRig is a balance-based stabilizer which can be used with smartphones and GoPro action cameras. Users just mount their camera of choice and then adjust the handle to find a balance point. Using the handle when filming should then result in footage which is considerably less shaky than if holding the camera in the hand.
