The Origin Camera Stabilizer
The Origin Camera Stabilizer is a creative camera tool that allows you to capture extremely smooth footage in rugged environments. The revolutionary dampening system has pushed the technology further than we had originally anticipated. We need your help to create the final mold which will define the cutting edge design and functionality of this stabilizer. The dampening system is almost at the sweet spot where we need it to be. With your pledges we will have the opportunity to perfect the system. The Origin is also light weight. It weighs 4.5 lbs and can carry up to a 5 lbs load.
The Origin Stabilizer has four axis of stability. We introduce the detachable four axis dampening system. This system provides an incredible way to fight gravity and removes bumps even out of the most rugged of film environments. Much of the up and down movement is marginalized if not completely removed with this revolutionary dampening system. There is also a second version of the dampening system being created right now. It brings the camera up higher and will keep the camera operator safe while navigating the gimbal. We took this cutting edge technology and pushed it even further. We hope you like it.
We have all of the right people in place for manufacturing and distribution. By keeping our grassroots in place we decided to have the "Origin" built within the United States. We plan to pull this off by using our strategic partnerships within our tight knit community and leverage our connections of local mechanical engineers. Helping out our community helps us. With a team effort and over almost two years of preparation we are ready to have something in your hands soon.

Lets Democratize Things Shall We!
In a recent update we mentioned that the dampening system will be available as an incentive to any gimbal system being sold on the market today. We feel that is an important step in gaining your support. You have talked and we have listened. We'll provide a universal mount system which will give everyone the chance to use this 4th axis dampener.
Power for the Camera Stabilizer
The batteries are being built specifically for us out of San Francisco California. We spent a lot of time perfecting the best power solution for the "Origin." With the 5 1/2 hours of battery life it supersedes anything we could have imagined. From start to finish we are confident that we will be able to mass produce this stabilizer right away.

Risks and challenges
This is a whole new frontier and reliability is what we all want which sometimes can be unpredictable. We planned for the unexpected by having multiple avenues in place in case one of them becomes unreliable. This will help us continue to meet our deadline for those patiently waiting for the final product. Some challenges might include delay of parts and supplies. We plan to overcome supply issues by bulk orders. After we fund we plan to have everything in place. We will keep you informed on our progress through email, short videos, and social media. We want you to not not only feel like your a part of our family. You will be a part of our family through this process.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
