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.
