Quick Release Plate

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Here’s a great quick release plate that sits nice and flat on the Ghost. If you balance your camera with a quick release plate it makes it very easy to change batteries or make any adjustments and get your camera back in the same spot without loosing the balance.

NAB

The SIC team will be at NAB this year. We don’t have a booth, but we will be wondering around with the Ghost. You are also welcome to visit with us at our hotel and demo the Ghost in person. We will have some our newest prototypes, so please send us an email or shoot us a text to meet up.

Going Mobile

Going Mobile! An app has just been released so you will be able to control The Ghost via your Android. An iphone app is being developed and we will soon be selling the Bluethooth add-on for your Ghost. Anyone will be able to make their Ghost bluetooth compatible.

Here is the link for the Android App: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ru.smartsoft.simplebgc

Wireless Joystick

Here’s a sketch of one of the ideas we’ve been working on. We thought about selling a joystick, but with the demand for a remote control and a joystick why not combine it into one? Let us know your thoughts.

The Ghost – Updated Demo Video

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] The Ghost- Updated Demo Video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hI6wCaJICCA The Ghost 3-Axis Camera Stabilizer has gone through many changes since the first Kickstarter version. This video demonstrates the new features of The Ghost. We have updated many of the mechanical parts including motor covers, control board housings, mode switch, aluminum t-clamps, extended grip, and an accessory mount. The Firmware has also gone through a lot of changes since the beginning. You can customize all of the settings in the software including an awesome “follow mode”, “lock mode”, and “set tilt angles by hand”. All of these features can be programmed to the mode switch so you can change your settings on the fly. The Ghost is for sale now here: http://sicvisuals.com/product/the-ghost-pre-assembled/ [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][videoembed type=”youtube” ratio=”sixteen_by_nine” url=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hI6wCaJICCA” id=”video_0″ width=”640″ height=”360″][/vc_column][/vc_row]

 

New Firmware and New Video

Check out the newest firmware for you Ghost: 2.4 b7

Download it here: http://www.basecamelectronics.com/downloads/8bit/

It has been working great without any of the glitches from b6

You still need to make sure your motors are properly inverted (you can use the Auto button for this, but make sure the motor pole count goes back to 14). You also need to hit the auto button in “Follow Mode” tab to set the proper offset.

If you want some profiles to start with please email us: http://sicvisuals.com/contact/

Wireless Video

Some of you have been asking about solutions for wireless operation and wireless video transmission.

“No Film School” posted a nice article today describing how to do it: http://nofilmschool.com/2014/02/cheapest-wireless-hdmi-video-monitoring-nyrius-aries-paralinx-arrow/

Here is another video talking you through the steps: http://youtu.be/Qr1WN8c3hYo

We haven’t tried this video transmitter yet, but we’ll let you know when we do. Right now we are operating a 1.2GHZ wireless transmitter with a clover leaf antenna. This gives us extra long range for flying aerials, but the Nyrius sounds like a great option for operating the Ghost on the ground within a 300ft range.
