(Los Angeles, CA) – September 27, 2017 – Noir Matter today introduced QUARK, the world’s smallest waterproof stabilizer for GoPro and other action cameras. Perfect for video makers and action sports enthusiasts, QUARK is the ultimate tool for capturing fully stable videos because of its horizontal (“roll”) stabilization which keeps the horizon “straight,” ensuring the captured action is always level. An Indiegogo campaign (https://igg.me/at/quark) which has a funding goal of $100,000 USD, features limited Super Early Bird specials of $145 USD (27% off retail) and several other rewards for early backers.
QUARK, a one-axis waterproof stabilizer (can be set for “Roll” and “Yaw” axis) for GoPro and other action cameras, stabilizes the attached camera on the selected axis by gathering motion information from different embedded sensors linked to the camera. By analyzing the gathered information, QUARK drives its powerful, custom motor to ensure users can record fully stable and level videos.
QUARK is the world’s first waterproof (up to 1m/3ft) stabilizer for GoPro and other action cameras, so users can use it during any water activity (i.e.: kitesurfing, surfing, kayaking, etc.) And, because of its size (76x67x31 mm / 3×2,6×1,2 in), users can keep it attached to their camera at all times. Lightweight (240g / 0.53Pound / 8.5 Oz), QUARK can be mounted on any mount, pole, helmet, ski, surfboard, etc.
“After using a variety of different 3-axis stabilizers, we realized that they were not practical and truly adapted for action cameras,” said Lancelot Gelas, founder, Noir Matter. “Most of them are too big, bulky, complex and heavy. By miniaturizing the technology, we have been able to create a product that you can use everywhere.”
Additional QUARK Specs:
• STABILIZATION: Electric with a Brushless DC Motor
• SENSORS: 3-axis gyroscope (“Roll,” “Pitch” and “Yaw” axes), accelerometer
• ONE SWITCH: Press the On/Off switch for easy activation or shut down
• BATTERY: Lithium Polymer, life of 3h (Recharge in 2h)
