Olloclip Pivot grips your phone for steady video capture


Last Sunday I posted a review of the Smoovie Pocket Video Stablizer and wasn’t very impressed with it. Now I see that Olloclip is offering a video grip that looks interesting. The Pivot doesn’t have a gimbal like the Smoovie, you’re on your own for stabilization, but a lot of phones already have built-in image stabilization, so you really just need a nice grip that will let you easily capture video at different angles and elevations. The Pivot looks like it can do that with its 225° articulating hub design and universal clamp that is able to accommodate mobile devices with screens from 4-5.5 inches. It comes with a GoPro adapter and has an integrated cold shoe mount to attach lightweight accessories like a light or microphone. The Olloclip Pivot is available for pre-order for $49.99 with shipping due in October. Visit for all the details.
