Introducing the Ghost, A DSLR Camera Stabilizer

By Anthony Thurston on August 23rd 2013

I can already tell what you are thinking, I am thinking it myself. Another day, another MoVI clone. Yes, yet another 3-axis gimbal based camera stabilizer is poised to hit the market since quadrupling their Kickstarter goal of $20,000, that stabilizer is called the Ghost.

I have to say, the Ghost looks to be a pretty solid product. The footage shown in the kickstarter video is smooth and the product itself looks to have a high build quality. If I had not seen so many MoVI clones announced over the last few months I would probably be much more excited about this one. Take a look at the announcement video below.

As I briefly mentioned in the opening paragraph the Ghost has already secured the $20,000 that they were hoping for. In fact they have quadrupled that, and are nearing $90,000 with 4 days remaining on their Kickstarter campaign.

One of the interesting things about the Ghost is that they are selling both “assembly required” and pre-assembled versions of the product. So if you want to save a few bucks you can purchase the kit and build it yourself. Neat deal for those of you who feel confident enough to take on such a task. It looks like the Ghost is going to retail between $1800 and $2200 depending on which package you purchase.

If you are interested in getting in on the action the Ghost has 4 days remaining on their Kickstarter campaign, so head over there and show your support.

    Not sure I’d call it a MOVI Clone it’s actually targeting a completely different price point and demographic. Similar concept perhaps..but camera stabilizers are hardly a unique thing. Im tempted…. !

      You are correct on both counts sir, I was mainly referring to the 3-axis gimbal based design with my “MoVI Clone” comment. MoVI had the pleasure of being the “first” mass marketed stabilizer like this and now it seems like they are crawling out of the woodwork.
