Tooga Flocam Camera Stabilizer

The Tooga Flocam is the first portable lego-style camera stabilizer with a bendable support arm. The Tooga FloCam includes a bendable counterweight arm and stackable weights. Using the weights, the operator gets balance in the "ballpark", then adjusts the bendable arm to make fine tune adjustments until perfect balance is achieved. Set-up time with the Tooga FloCam can take less than 1 minute. The Flocam supports iPhones, GoPros, Android, DSLRs, and any camera up to 4 lbs.

Tooga Press Release

Crowdfunding Product Launch: Tooga FloCam Modular Camera Stabilizer with Bendable Arm for DSLR, Mirrorless Micro 4/3, GoPro, iPhone, Android

The Tooga Flocam, the first portable lego-style camera stabilizer with a bendable support arm, launches today on indiegogo. Tooga's unique design allows the FloCam to be stored in a much smaller form factor such as a small bag or backpack, get stable shots, while also getting better, more diversified shots with less gear.

Huntington Beach, CA (PRWEB) August 20, 2013

Until now, camera stabilizers have used rigid counterweight arms, making them bulky, and difficult to balance.

Instead, the Tooga FloCam includes a bendable counterweight arm and stackable weights. Using the weights, the operator gets balance in the "ballpark", then adjusts the bendable arm to make fine tune adjustments until perfect balance is achieved. Set-up time with the Tooga FloCam can take less than 1 minute.

"The intuitive method of manipulating the FloCam's support arm during set-up is much simpler and faster than setting up a rigid arm stabilizer." - Chris Anderson, Product Designer

To ensure ongoing stability while filming, the gimbal handle uses a very low friction u-joint and ball bearing combination. The three degrees of rotational freedom allows the camera to "Flow" through the air capturing smooth footage.

The Flocam supports iPhones, GoPros, Android, DSLRs, and any camera up to 4 lbs. The camera or smartphone can be mounted directly to the Tooga Shell using a 1/4 20 threaded knob.

Tooga Lego-Style Design:

The Tooga Flocam was carefully designed to perform as one solid piece of equipment yet contain modular parts. The “lego style” design allows the FloCam to be quickly disassembled and stored in a much smaller form for portability.

"We designed the Tooga for the creative video maker looking to get more from their gear" - Sherry Wu, Product Designer

The Bendable Arm can be removed using a simple snap connection and flipped upside down to create a low angle camera stabilizer
The Tooga Shell can be used on its own as a tripod accessory with 7 1/4-20 threaded holes to attach extra camera gear accessories such as lighting, mics, gopros, etc.
Attach suction cups to the Tooga shell to create a strong suction cup mount that withstands speeds of 100+ miles per hour.

The small team based in Huntington Beach, CA hopes to raise at least $30k on indiegogo to produce the Flocam and to continue working on new modular concepts around the Tooga.

  1. I produce and star in the Doctor Who parody web series, "What, Doctor?", and the tongue-in-cheek action-adventure series, "The Adventures of Superseven". We are very low-budget productions, and are always looking for inexpensive ways to add production value to our shows. We've used a Steadicam rig (donated) in a few episodes. The footage from that, a bulky, convoluted system, did not look any better than the stabilized footage from our Canon HF200. While the Tooga looks like an interesting piece, I feel that physical stabilizers will be redundant in a very short time, due to the advances in camera stabilization. I use a free app on my iPad (with which I shoot "What, Doctor?"), and its stabilization is astounding.
