My first test with a production model of the palm-sized Sony HXR-NX30 camcorder in which the lens assembly is mounted within a gyroscope. Sony calls the feature Balanced Optical SteadyShot and suggests it could lessen the need for Steadicam-type stabilizing systems. Sony's own promotional video shows the camera mounted on a moving car and used for B roll. My hand-held video was shot in Manhattan on 7/7/12.
