We’re out here on a beautiful spring afternoon
in Denmark. The footage you are seeing is recorded using our self-built three Axis stabilizer,
called OpenSAM. It is handheld and the entire mechanical construct
is built using 3D printed parts. Brushless motors ensure the camera is stable and they
can be controlled using a joystick. The design is developed by three engineering students
at the Technical University of Denmark. A second camera is attached to the handle
and you can clearly see the difference it makes.
Now gimbals like this may exist in plenty, but we think ours is unique because of its
use of additive manufacturing. That makes the system very cheap to build and easy to
reconstruct. All the files are open source and you can visit our website for all the
links and a detailed description.
Now take a look at this nice footage.
