One of the phrases I’ve heard over the last recent years is that 4K is the new High Definition. Technology moves very swiftly these days so I’m now going to call handheld gimbal cameras the new 4K. Between the iPhone 6s Plus’ optical image stabilizer, the solidLUUV, and the DJI OSMO; miniaturized stabilization is where the action is at.
While the OSMO is already a popular product without even making it to retail shelves yet, the company Filmpower (which introduced one of the very first handheld gimbals) is releasing a handheld gimbal with an built-in 4K camera called the ROXOR.
The new device has a small screen on the back for monitoring, accepts TF cards (microSD) up to 32Gb, and uses removable batteries that last for about two hours. Like many 4K cameras, you can drop the resolution in order to access it’s high-speed functionality. Drop to full high-def 1080p and you can record at 60fps while 720p will get you twice the amount at 120fps. Here’s the ROXOR Handheld Gimbal Camera’s features:
- An intergration 3-axis Stabilization Camera System with LCD Screen
- Smart Gimbal Fully Stabilized 4k Video, 12MP photo, time-lapse photography
- Slow motion 1080@60FPS 720@120FPS
- Wifi monitor and remote control with smartphone
- Smart battery can be replaced, 2 hours of photo@video
- Maximum supported 32GB TF card
- 1/4 Screw suite of accessories
Filmpower hasn’t released any other information regarding the product other than it’s available for preorder at $199. Shipping will start in 4-5 weeks and the camera will eventually retail for $399. The ROXOR is available on their website here.
