Gizcam Redfox helps you to shoot professional looking videos with your smartphone

gizcam-redfoxLet’s just say that you have a great love for all sorts of video recording devices, and the camera is one of them. While carrying a camcorder with you can be a rather bulky endeavor, this does not mean that there is no practical solution for the preservation of perfect moments. A smartphone, especially the high end models and flagships of today, do sport some pretty great sensors in their chipsets to shoot fantastic looking photos and steady videos, thanks to the presence of OIS chips in their devices. However, not all smartphone cameras come with an OIS chip, and this is where the Gizcam Redfox steps in – to do away with blurry and shaky video footage shot on a smartphone.

Smartphones are not the only devices that the Gizcam Redfox caters to, as it also comes in another variant that supports action cameras. The entire device would tip the scales at 430 grams, but if you opt for the action camera version, then it would be close to a hundred grams lighter with a 338 gram reading, ensuring that you will not end up with a strained back or hands at the end of the day.

Not only that, the Gizcam Redfox also comes with a built-in 3,000mAh battery, and that is more than capable of ensuring that the Redfox ends up working for the better part of 10 hours before requiring a recharge. Not only that, it will also be able to double up as a power bank just in case your smartphone runs out of juice and there is no power outlet nearby to zap it back to life. As the Gizcam Redfox resembles that of a selfie stick, it will also allow you to snap portraits from your smartphone without the need to touch your handset.

There are three different modes that the Gizcam Redfox offers: Locking mode, Heading follow mode and Pitching mode. Whenever you shoot video in challenging conditions where the wind is strong or there is plenty of movement on your part, then the control accuracy of the motor is around 0.02 degrees, letting it adapt accordingly to the surrounding environment so that it can capture the best footage possible.

Bluetooth connectivity is also thrown into the mix, where the smartphone compatible $299.99 Gizcam Redfox will play nice with the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. For those who prefer to rock to an action camera, the Gizcam Redfox action camera compatibility list would be the GoPro Hero 4, GoPro Hero 3+, GoPro Hero 3, Xiaomi Yi action camera, and basically just about any other kind of action camera that carries similar dimensions to the ones mentioned, and this one will be more affordable at $259.99 a pop.
