  • Publication number: 20210272759
    Abstract: A button is disclosed for use with an image capture device in an underwater environment. The button includes a movable plunger configured to cause actuation of the image capture device, and upper and lower components collectively defining an internal cavity that is configured to receive the plunger. The upper and lower components are configured and connected such that actuation of the image capture device is prevented until a threshold pressure is applied to the upper component that is greater than external water pressure applied in the underwater environment. The upper component includes at least one opening that is configured to allow water to enter the internal cavity to modify an internal pressure within the internal cavity so as to reduce the threshold pressure required to actuate the image capture device in the underwater environment.

  • Publication number: 20210067665
    Abstract: In one aspect of the present disclosure, a module is disclosed for use with a digital image capturing device (DICD) including an integrated sensor-lens assembly (ISLA). The module includes a cradle configured for connection to a housing of the DICD, and at least one dampener that is configured for positioning between the module and the housing of the DICD to reduce vibrations transmitted to the ISLA.

  • Publication number: 20200128320
    Abstract: An image capture device and a handheld image stabilization device may each include a housing, a motor assembly, a microphone, a dampener, or any combination thereof. The housing may include a first port. The motor assembly may be attached to the housing. The motor assembly may include a plurality of motors. The microphone may be configured to detect audio waves via the first port, vibration noise of the plurality of motors via the housing, or both. The audio waves may include acoustic noise from the plurality of motors. The dampener may be coupled to the housing. The dampener may be configured to reduce the acoustic noise from the plurality of motors, the vibration noise from the plurality of motors, or both.

  • Publication number: 20200068292
    Abstract: A motor may include a coil assembly, a ring, one or more magnets, and a shaft. The coil assembly may include one or more coils arranged in a circular structure. The ring may surround an outer surface of the coil assembly. One or more magnets may be adhered to an inner surface of the ring. The one or more magnets may correspond with a respective coil of the one or more coils. The shaft may extend through a center portion of the circular structure. The shaft may provide a rotational axis for the motor. The shaft may be configured to generate a natural resonance that does not overlap with an operating frequency of the motor.

  • Publication number: 20200036878
    Abstract: In one aspect of the present disclosure, a gimbal assembly is described for use with an image capturing device. The gimbal assembly includes a motor assembly, a first housing defining an internal compartment that is configured and dimensioned to receive the motor assembly, and a second housing that is mechanically connected to the motor assembly such that actuation of the motor assembly causes relative rotation between the first and second housings. The first housing includes a first guide that is configured and dimensioned to support transmission media adapted to communicate electrical and/or digital signals. The second housing defines a channel that is configured and dimensioned to receive the first guide such that the first guide extends into the second housing through the channel. The transmission media is supported on the first guide such that the first guide routes the transmission media from the first housing into the second housing.
