If you’ve done any sort of video work, you know how important it is to keep your camera perfectly stable. Just a little bit of shake can be the difference between a professional looking shot, and unusable footage. This is fairly easy to accomplish when your camera is sitting still, but what about those times when you want to move it around? That’s when you need to use CineSkates.
CineSkates started as a KickStarter project, which ended up getting 20 times the funding that they originally needed. The CineSkates are a set of skateboard wheels that attach to a GorillaPod. By combining the fluid motion of the skate wheels, and the flexibility of the GorillaPod, you have the ability to capture smooth video while keeping your camera in motion. The $200 price tag may seem salty, until you look at the cost of professional equipment that will yield similar results.
