The Hipjib is a new type video camera (and DSLR) handling accessory. It was designed around a special belt with a strong but lightweight unit intended to accommodate a tripod or a monopod (almost any will do). It provides stability and allows for steady movement of the camera (currently only when the camera person is in one place but the developer is looking for other solutions as well).
The Hipjib is currently raising money on kickstarter and is on its way to raise the required $20k – you can secure yourself a unit for $140.
