SteadXP delivers 3-axis stabilization in a lightweight, easy to use package and according to the company, it is compatible with nearly all digital cameras, including GoPro’s, DSLR’s and cinema cameras.
By combining custom hardware with a unique software algorithm, SteadXP allows you to shoot action shots without a Steadycam or gimbal. Instead SteadXP’s built-in accelerometer and gyroscope record the camera’s movements accurately as you shoot.
After recording you connect SteadXP to your computer and watch as the software stabilizes the footage and removes unwanted artifacts.
The real breakthrough with this device, is how free you are to film without the hassle of any mechanical structure between you and the camera.
According to newsshooter who tested the device the downside seems to be that with the SteadXP approach you’re losing resolution and need to film on a higher shutter speed.
