Most of you have probably heard about the MōVI handheld stabilized system created by Freefly System and priced at $15.000. I’ve a friend that just pre-order one and I was wondering if another company will come out with a similar camera stabilizer model at a lower price. Well, here we go! A UK based company just come out with the BesSteady ONE, a gyroscopic camera stabilizer priced under $3000. That is 5x less than the Movi Camera System. Take a look a this videos to have an idea. You can subscribe on their website to be informed about the pre-order.
What is the BeSteady?
The BeSteady is a camera stabilizer based on an electronic system equipped with gyroscopic sensors and accelerometers, using the direct drive of three axis of rotation in the form of brushless direct-current motors.
In simple terms, it is a highly advanced electronic device which allows for incredible shots, creating new applications and abilities, perfectly complementing and supplementing other producers’ stabilizers and rigs available on the market.

A cinema experiment: what rival visions would emerge if you pitted the director of The Bicycle Thieves against the producer of Gone with the Wind on the same movie material? History can tell us…
“The only great problem of cinema seems to be more and more, with each film, when and why to start a shot and when and why to end it.”
— Jean Luc Godard
Those of you who have been visiting Cameraman.com would have noticed that the website has changed appearance.
The main reason for this change is to share more information and diversify the website contents . Above all, I want to start sharing more personal experiences as a cameraman and especially my new challenges and projects. I have added several pages going from workshops to expeditions passing by my new videos and photos portfolios including underwater projects.
Professional interviews and how-to-do videos are still high on my agenda and will always be available.
As always, I truly welcome feedback, comments and ideas, so feel free to chip into discussions and topics!
Many thanks for your visit, support & comments.
