Hey y’all! Hope your respective weeks are off to a great start!

I just shot a music performance at Moscow 57 with my GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition and needed a stabilizer for it. So I bought the DigiPower Camera Stabilizer from Best Buy… it worked… but not when I was moving! What a contradiction in terms: a “stabilizer” that doesn’t keep your camera steady when you move!

The DigiPower Camera “Stabilizer” is not worth your Money!

It’s great for just standing still, but again I say, that’s not what a camera stabilizer is for! It’s for walking or running with a camera. The problem seemed to be in the balljoint right at the top of the handle, which could not be locked. Therefore, whenever I changed direction, the camera would swing back and forth on that balljoint before it stabilized. Unbelievable! This unit goes for $65. Needless to say, I returned it yesterday with no questions asked at Best Buy.

Don’t buy the DigiPower Camera “Stabilizer” !

The search continues for a good GoPro stabilizer that’s affordable!

Rock on!
