Polaroid vuole stabilizzare i vostri video da action cam e smartphone (foto)

Cosimo Alfredo Pina

Polaroid lancia due dispositivi incentrati alla stabilizzazione dei video di smartphone ed action cam. Non hanno nomi troppo fantasiosi o particolarmente accattivanti ma vi fanno capire subito di cosa sono capaci: Polaroid Handheld 3-Axis Electronic Gimbal Stabilizer e Polaroid Power Handgrip/Stabilizer.

Il primo dispositivo è un gimbal, ovvero un sistema su cui potete montare la vostra action cam per ridurre i movimenti indesiderati nei video. Quello di Polaroid stabilizza le riprese su tre assi grazie ad un sistema di motori alimentato da tre batterie ricaricabili (3,7 V).

RECENSIONE: Gimbal per smartphone ZhiYun Z1

Il Power Handgrip/Stabilizer si pone lo stesso obiettivo di stabilizzare i video, anche degli smartphone. Qui mancano motori o sistemi avanzati, ma il generoso manico, che tra l’altro integra anche un power bank da 6.000 mAh, promette una presa migliore di quella che potrete avere sul dispositivo “nudo”.

Non ci sono notizie sull’arrivo in Italia di questi prodotti ma intanto sono già disponibili su Amazon USA dove il gimbal viene venduto a 179,99$ e il grip a 49,99$.
