You want to know what's cooler than performing a sweet stunt or going on a sick adventure? Filming it and then sharing it online for everyone to gawk at. So if you want to become the envy of all your friends and/or the world, the first step is, well, doing cool stuff. But the equally important second step is getting the proper equipment to make the footage happen, and that's where the Cracked Shop can help you out.
It might seem a little over the top to use a phrase like "high-octane adrenaline-fueled thrill ride," but since the Slick Smart is one of the only GoPro stabilizers specifically optimized for action sports, we're forced to recommend it for any adventures you have that contain higher than the recommended daily amount of octane and/or adrenaline. It's compatible with Hero 3, 3+, 4, 5, 6, 7, and session series, and records up to four hours on a single charge.
Normally $299, you can grab yours in the Cracked Shop right now for just $269.
This gimbal doesn't just keep your shots steady; it seamlessly switches between landscape and portrait modes, and allows you to adjust your focus manually with a built-in focus wheel. You want to pan 320 degrees, with 160-degree tilt and 155-degree roll motion, like you're a fighter pilot going on a dive? You better believe it does that too.
Not only does the MOZA do all that gimby-gumby goodness you've come to expect from high-quality gimbals, but it also keeps your device charged while it records with a 5V input port. The built-in buttons also allow you to focus, zoom, view photos, and even help you perform slow-motion time lapses and panoramas.

Insta360 connects right to your phone -- Apple or Android -- and allows you to record and edit 360-degree footage directly from your device using "Flowstate" stabilization technology.

This tripod is compact and weightless, but still packs all the heft you demand of something that's going to be carrying an expensive piece of camera equipment.
