Oto posted a new video on their facebook this morning of Nick Jacobsen doing megaloops at king of the air with the strut mount. If it is raw video, the mount seems pretty sick!



Thanks for the fix Ronnie

Before you click on the vimeo button above, leave your pointer on it and read the instructions.

The video is amazing if that is raw footage. They will sell a shedfull of them if it is.

Not sure how this works but having been working on several Quad drones it occured to me that the camera stabilization electronics could be used for such a purpose.

Seeing that video seems to rule out any non powered gravity only solutions. It must be the electronic stabilization variety as used in drones (Small, low power).

The DIY solution would probably be around $50, so a comercial version must be in the $150+ range.

I wonder if software video stabilization can do the same thing?

Yup, about $140 on ebay for the electronics and gimbal.

Electronics alone about $40 for the DIYer.

Still needs to be made waterproof though and a strut mount.

So what is the OTO thing? Something that clips onto the back of a GoPro or is it some sort of gimbal?

The last thing I want is some monstrosity mount clamped to my kites strut or line mount.

I still wish GoPro would come out with a self leveling/auto orientation upgrade.
(I'll go ahead and dream of image stabilization too while I'm at it....)

I remember seeing a camera in development that used GoPro like sensors in a ball array to capture ALL angles at one. You could then find the horizon and frame direction in post production.
Looked like the ultimate solution. Just record everything in all directions and decide on the view/orientation later.
Called Bubl?

Make it waterproof and you have a sweet sports camera

I'm new to this camera lark, so how does something like this Skord compare to the results of the OTO thing (whatever it is!)?

Also what's the piece of string flapping about in that OTO vid - a leash?
