The same image stabilization software being deployed on US airborne drones is now available for your HDSLR video – and it only costs $50. The unfortunate thing for most of our readers is that this is for Windows only. I went to download it to try it out only to be sadly disappointed. The demo video below seems to indicate that the technology doesn't zoom into the image (giving up a portion of the video) like the other tech I've seen (FCPX for example).
“Taking video with a DSLR in hand without a tripod or a monopod can be tricky business. Even if a camera has image stabilization, it can only do so much for moving pictures and hands that move just by blood pressure alone. This is where vReveal comes into fix your shaky home video woes with military-grade image stabilization.
vReveal developer MotionDSP used the image-stabilization technology, called Ikena ISR, that they developed for military use. MotionDSP’s image stabilization tech is normally used to turn a Predator UAV’s video feed into something usable after cleaning up all the rattling from air currents.”
