In the age of oversharing, no longer are we content with shamelessly posting innumerable amounts of selfies, baby pictures, and nature photos, we’re now taking it to the next level and social is starting to see an uprising in something that might possibly be even more annoying – poorly made cell videos.

Not only are they typically awkward to watch, because let’s face it, you shouldn’t be talking on video, it’s cringy and weird and unnatural, but they are often nausea-inducing, shakey cam fits that should never have made it farther than your video roll.

While there is literally no product that can help you with your awkwardness, there is some relief in sight for the unstable videos you’re filming with your phone and GoPro. StayblCam works with any phone and many action cameras to give you stable videos where ever you go. It uses an adapter to work with any phone and has a standard 1/4″ universal camera mount, as well. The stabilizer is compact, portable, and doesn’t require any knowledge when it comes to counterweight balancing, simply attach your device and you’re good to go.

More than just a standard stabilizer, the StayblCam also allows you to fully control the tilt and pan of your camera. Left hand on that ergonomic grip action handle, right hand on that tilt control. When not in use, the device measures in at just 10 inches and quickly extends when needed. It will even work upside down, allowing you to capture some low-level shots, then will extend up to 3 feet to capture high angle shots.

The StayblCam retails at $74.95 and can be purchased directly through the company’s website. Keep in mind, StayblCam isn’t the only players on the market. A simple Amazon search brings up a wide array of other players in the market. Some for cheaper, some for more money. Judging from StayblCam’s reviews, they seem like a sure bet.

So the next time you decide to film a parking lot fight, at least have the decency to use something like StayblCam before yelling “Worldstar,” that way we can actually tell what is going on.
