Indiegogo: actiontwister - actioncamera crane for GoPro Hero and Smartphones



We first heard of the actiontwister at PhotoPlus Expo in NYC back in October 2014. It was a very unique item that was being displayed at the FLM booth but was a demo/prototype unit. Finally, it can become a reality and in your hands. The actiontwister is hand controlled and can control the tilting and rotation of your camera.

It's currently on the crowdfunding site, Indiegogo. They are offering two different version. A actiontwister LIGHT and the actiontwister CLASSIC. The difference between the two is that the LIGHT is lighter, length is fixed and less technology in the hand grip. The CLASSIC actiontwister allows you to telescope the pole like you would with a tripod leg to give you that extra reach.

There is also going to be a DIVE version (January 2016) which is the same as the actiontwister CLASSIC, but the metals and the ball-bearings are refined to resist sweat and above all, salt water conditions. Still it always needs to be cleaned carefully after each use. And a MINI version (Summer 2016) is the most versatile version of all. Easy to fix on any existing mount of any brand.

If the pole is anything like their carbon fiber tripod and ball heads, the quality of the actiontwister will be top notch.
