Although the GoPro Hero’s wide-angle lens already does a good job at smoothing footage out, some shakes do still make it through when shooting particularly "bumpy" activities. There are plenty of counterweight-style devices to help in that regard, along with a few motorized stabilizing rigs and the new Slick stabilizer falls into the latter family. It fits all GoPro models with their waterproof housing, plus it's waterproof itself.
Smartphone cameras are increasingly taking the place of stand-alone
consumer video cameras, and in a lot of ways that makes sense. A phone,
however, isn't nearly as easy to hold onto while shooting – its screen
can also be difficult to see in bright sunlight. Well, that's where the
Lumenati CS1 comes in. It's a videography case for the iPhone 6, and it

It's now pretty common for people to use an actioncam to record their
bicycle trips. Some people even wear one, with another mounted somewhere
on their bike. What isn't so common, however, is to see someone cycling

anti-vibration-padded aluminum iPad frame with threaded holes that allow
users to add accessories such as a shotgun mic, light, lens or tripod.
Soon, however, it’ll be getting a sister device that can be used with
any tablet or smartphone.
Ah, the selfie stick ... perhaps one of the most made-fun-of inventions
of the past few years. The SoloCam takes the basic idea and adds to it,
however, creating a tool that could actually be useful to video bloggers
or even serious journalists whose camera operators have been laid off.
