Hard Drive Camera Stabilizer

at 11:25 am. Filed under Computer Hacks, Cool Gadgets, Electronic Hacks


BobS has come up with a creative Hard Drive Camera Stabilizer. We have seen other ways to Gyro Stabilize a Camera but this one is nice because it has the possibility of making use of a hard drive that otherwise would have no purpose.

"In an experiment, I connected a loose HD to a computer power supply, and felt the resistance to its change of position. I figured a HD in the horizontal and one in the vertical plane (X- and Y- axis) would dampen almost all unwanted shaking. A single Gyro has its theoretical limits. A strong Gyro in the front / back plane (Z – axis) could dampen shaking, but would not correct rotation. But if rotation around the optical axis is only a minor component of motion blur… , the advantage is less weight and power requirement."

    Mounting this on low Fn (soft) mounts would be a great way to produce a very steady cam.

    Ah that’s cool as. I couldn’t be bothered making one, but cool nonetheless.
