anyone with a ‘GoPro’ camera will understand, shooting moving videos takes a very steady hand, but tends to result in a jittery footage. aetho wants to bring stabilizers to consumers everywhere with the ‘aeon’. traditional very large stabilizers used by video professionals, the ‘aeon’ is a handheld tool that is ergonomic and lightweight for creating smooth, cinematic videos.

to keep it stable, the gadget uses sensors to detect the three axes and makes adjustments 1,000 times per second. with every counter movement, the ‘aeon’ employs three brushless motors to move the camera. to view the footage, the ‘aeon’ includes a two-inch circular screen so videographers can see the ‘GoPro’s’ perspective. weighing only 500 grams, the stabilizer is made from injection molded ABS plastic and features a five-hour battery that can be charged using a USB cable. to frame more interesting footage, the aetho ‘aeon’ has a universal mount that works with all official ‘gopro’ accessories. the video stabilizer is available for purchase on their indiegogo page, with a plan to ship to buyers in early 2016.

  • I know it seems.. “If not shot with a GP – it was not fun.” ..but the combo of this kit and one camera gets you three Xiaomi Yi cams and gravity stabilizers ..and not dissimilar results. I like the design however.

  • I don’t get the round screen. What’s the point? When was the last time we didn’t care about the corners of our images? Never.
