->> I'll try to explain this as best I can. I was shooting the TaxSlayer Bowl this past weekend and at the pep rally I saw a fellow photographer using some sort of camera that was extended on a arm with a stabilizing arm at the end of it. This was a video camera (almost looked like a GoPro and could have been) that was extended about 2-3 ft in the air that was connected to looked like a phone at the bottom so he could see what he was videoing and and he could focus by buttons on the bottom of the arm. I went to talk to the guy about the device but couldn't find him afterwords. Does anyone know what this is called? I would like to look into this and have searched B&H to see if maybe I can find it but not having much luck.

->> There are a couple different devices that it could be. The ones I see most often are the Osmo line by DJI. http://www.dji.com/products/imagery#handheld-nav

GoPro recently entered the market with the Karma Grip.

->> Darrin, could it have been an Osmo? It is gimbal mounted camera with a control handle and a mount for a viewing device. They do have a 3 foot extension rod.

->> It looked similar to these but the stabilizer had two arms connected to the camera.
