    They’re fundraising on kickstarter and you’ve got 4 days left to get in on the action — and the good news is they’re already funded (currently at about 350%). There are some options to get some early bird discounts there on kickstarter if you’re interested but you’ve only got 4 days.

    Camera stabilizing rigs have become more and more poplar as the video industry grows and people realize smooth video is essential for a professional product.

    Steadicam rigs are one of the only products on the market that allow for these professional shots, but they are expensive and take years of operating to master. That is, until The Ghost. The Ghost is a robotic camera stabilizing rig programmed to stay level. This revolutionary camera rig couldn’t make smooth filming any easier. It is very lightweight, durable, and so easy to use that even a child can operate it. It is primarily made out of carbon fiber to minimize weight and withstand the abuse of field use. The electronics are simple with two silent brushless motors and a pre-programmed control board. Just attach the battery, turn it on, and track your subject to get that cinematically smooth footage.
