You already have some of the best onboard stabilization for your photos if you’re rocking a phone like the Nokia Lumia Icon or Lumia 1020. Nokia debuted optical image stabilization (OIS) technology in the Lumia 920 back in 2012. This piece of technology helps you achieve sharp images and better photos in low-light situations. You can now find it in all high end PureView phones. However, even Nokia’s onboard OIS tech has its limitations for stabilized photos and videos. Check out this stabilizer from LUUV if you find yourself shooting a lot of video with your phone.
We’ve seen some incredible videos from devices like the Lumia 1020, Lumia 1520 and Lumia Icon. And we know there are probably a handful of you out there looking for a smartphones stabilizer. You just might like LUUV.
LUUV is different from other stabilizers on the market because it’s geared at smaller devices like a smartphone or GoPro. LUUV also boasts about the plug-and-play aspect of the stabilizer. You don’t need to spend a lot of time twiddling with counterweights or connecting your device to the stabilizer. Attach it and you’re good to start filming.
It’s also fairly cool that you can switch the orientation of LUUV quickly by inverting the contraption. They call that up and down mode, but we just call it awesome. We also like that LUUV is device agnostic. The smartphone adapter will work whether you’re rocking a Lumia 1020, HTC One or iPhone.
LUUV is available through crowdfunding site Indiegogo. The early-bird pricing has already sold out, so if you want the LUUV you’ll need to pledge in at the $249 mark. Check the LUUV Indiegogo page for the full details and various perks you get at different pledge points.
