This project has been developed by Nil Carrillo and Robert Cabañero, two 3rd year product design engineering students at ELISAVA.
Video recording is greatly conditioned by the cameraman’s pulse, since it has a direct impact on the quality of the footage. Camera stabilizers have been developed to minimize the impact of vibrations on video footage, and we can find from traditional mechanical stabilizers to modern electronic stabilizers such as the KarmaGrip by GoPro.
In this instructable guide you will find the steps to develop an electronic camera stabilizer operating on an Arduino environment.
The stabilizer we have designed is thought to stabilize two of the rotation axis automatically, while leaving the flat rotation of the camera under control of the user, who can orient the camera as he pleases through two pushbuttons located on the
We will start off listing the necessary components and the software and code that has been used to develop this project. We will continue with a step-by-step explanation of the assembly process to end up extracting a few conclusions about the whole process and the project itself.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
