Over the last several days, one particular piece of new gear has been getting a lot of attention as a potential "game changer" for the videographers among us. A new hand-held stabilization rig, the MoVI is a three-axis, gyroscopic, completely silent system that's looking to revolutionize the professional stabilization market.

DIY Gyroscopic Camera Stabilizer Made On the Cheap

Physics guru David Prutchi recently came across a line of professional grade gyroscopic camera stabilizers by Kenyon Laboratories. They cost thousands of dollars each, but Prutchi noticed that the designs hadn't changed much since they were first patented in the 1950s. He then set out to create his own DIY version using low-cost gyroscopes from His finished device (shown above) actually helps stabilize his DSLR when shooting video or when photographing with non-image-stabilized lenses.
