These days, smartphone optics have gotten so good that most of the time you don't even need a separate camera to take great photos and videos.
Speaking of videos.
Phone cameras are great at that, yes, but your hands? Not so. Taking smartphone video handheld can produce dizzying, shaky footage. Even with the built-in stabilisation features.
Now, you might think, “Hey, there's a thing called a gimbal for that.” Yeah, gimbals are great and all, but they only have one function – to hold your phone steady as you move it around. Nothing else special about them. So what if you could have something that does so much more?
Meet the Pivo.
This guy is a content creator's toolkit in one small package. It stabilises your phone, moves it around automatically, and allows you to make up lots of different gimmicks for your photos, videos, and GIFs. With Pivo, you can create amazing, pro-level footage even by yourself!
Like to move around in your vlog?
Let Pivo's face tracking take care of it. When you move, Pivo moves, keeping your face inside the frame. It does this automatically; no user intervention required. Just set it and forget it. And if you need some finer control over Pivo's movement, you can always use the included remote control.
Not just that, it works on objects too. So if you're doing a how-to video, let Pivo always put the focus on the thing you're featuring. As the object moves, Pivo moves. Similarly, this motion can be fine-tuned with the remote control.
You know what else Pivo is good for? Panoramic shots.
Gone are the days with panoramas having distorted parts. Pivo's buttery-smooth motion allows for perfect panoramic images each and every time. You can even take unique 360-degree shots with the Tiny Planet mode.
Want to clone yourself?
Pivo can do that for you with its ManyMe mode. Put yourself in many different parts of the frame and Pivo takes separate snapshots, creating the illusion of many versions of you side-by-side.
Are you into live streaming?
Streaming is a thing nowadays. But with so many different platforms available, it can be hard to choose which one to use. Don't worry. Pivo's Multi-Platform Live function lets you stream to Twitch, Facebook, Periscope, and over 29 other platforms. The best part? You can go live on more than one platform simultaneously! Now you can let more people see your creativity in action.
That isn't all. Pivo also includes a few add-ons for more fun.
Use the GoPro mount to attach to your favourite action camera and use Pivo's powerful features on your GoPro. Yes, that includes the face and object tracking.
Got an online store and want to create 360 views of your products? No problem. The turntable and lightbox add-ons are great for this. Put your product on the turntable, and the turntable in the lightbox, rotate, and let Pivo capture all angles of your product smoothly.
Pivo is your personal camera assistant in a small, portable package.
About Job Eloja
I have a degree in Molecular Biology, and I graduated last 2014. For a year, I worked in a research lab, but at the end of it, I realised I am really not a good fit for lab work. I explored other options, and since I really liked writing, I took on a job as a content writer for a small company. I’ve been in this company for 3 years now, and on the side, I take on projects for my own clients as well. I have written more than a handful of technology articles, but occasionally I also write about other niches.
