About the Casper Mini Stabilizer

Even though there are many stabilizers out in the market, there is nothing like this. It is fast to balance, portable, collapsible, light and at an attractive price. 

What's Special

  • It will be the fastest stabilizer to balance because of a unique 2-axis slide developed in-house.

  • It is completely collapsible, can be stored easily and assembled quickly. You can pull it out of of your camera bag and put it together in just 30 seconds.

  • It is very light, weighing only 1.1kg (2.4 lb.), and is easy to carry. We have also designed a special quick release system that further reduces the final weight after the camera is attached.

  • Our custom designed quick release plates for the BMPCC, GH4 and Sony A7 will prevent the camera from getting misaligned or accidentally turning because of a heavy lens.

  • The unique cross shaped base adds greater mass and therefore greater inertia to the balance of the stabilizer. This also allows you to set down the stabilizer without having to worry about it tipping over. 

Rewards

For our early backers as a token of our appreciation and gratitude, we are offering the Casper Mini Stabilizer at $289, which is $50 off the retail price. Cost of shipping is included.

Shots using Casper Mini

The first 20 seconds show handheld footage for the GH4, BMPCC and A7S WITHOUT the Casper Mini stabilizer. You can really see the difference when using the Casper Mini from 20s onwards.  

Design and Production

Casper Mini is designed in-house and will be produced at our factory in Noida. All our products are made from industrial grade aluminum and the highest quality standards will be maintained. We expect to ship out all Casper Mini Stabilizers to our backers by October 15th. 

About Us

We brought out the Brahma microphone last fall to enable independent and documentary filmmakers to have access to high quality, affordable ambisonic sound recording. Thank you Kickstarter backers for making our dream a reality! We would love to replicate the success of the Brahma Microphone with the Casper Mini Stabilizer and provide you with another affordable and high quality tool for making great films!
