I should have added a weight to the tripod. That would have made it much steadier.

As to the video quality, I thought the default setting was 4k, but it turns out I was recording in 1080p, and then I cropped it. There are settings for wider or narrower field of view, and framing.

I think their campaign started earliest summer 2015.
I am pretty sure I was very early in September 2015.

What is sad is they are doing funding campaigns for the 3rd generation of the thing. I can understand a funding campaign for a 1st generation brand new product, but by now, they should have financing in place to develop and produce without keeping a customers money as an interest free loan in order to get to market.

What this really tells me is that their success is very limited and they cannot attain traditional funding, so they turn to the people.

Rogue: but they gave a big discount, so it's fair.

hahaha, yes! but no luck on financial stuff here.

The early birds got 50% discount. Then they gave less and less (I think 35, 25, 10, 5).

I am not that mad, since I have SS2 which after a while works excellent now...but the new SS3 has two important benefits: faster setup. and I can move it. Now I am stuck on one spot, which means if an annoying person is in my way I have to deal with it. With SS3 I can just take the setup and got where I have more space.
Huge plus!
