The objective of this project is to design and prototype a device that will reduce undesirable motion in video recording. The device will be mounted as part of a mechanical system that allows the user to specify the orientation of the camera and save that setting. The user will be able to select from several different modes of operation that will maintain a steady orientation toward a desired location or axis using computational corrections to the mechanical system. Once the user has selected an operating mode the user will be free to move the mount without disturbing the stabilization of the shoot.
