The beginning

They said: "We often film with the GoPro camera. No matter where we are, on holidays or on a hiking trip the GoPro camera is always with us. However our shots were always shaky and not very useful. Because of that we wanted to buy a Steadycam but the most of them were too expensive, so that we couldn’t afford them. That is why we decided to create our own Steadycam. We designed a sport camera holder by ourselves: simple to handle, for a low price, optimized and designed to manufacture with a 3D printer. "
