Hauppauge, NY—The Steadicam division of the Tiffen Company is offering Steadicam owners a Steadicam Smoothee bonus pack worth $24.95 that includes two mounts for the price of one: a mount for the iPhone 5/5s and one for GoPro Hero cameras.
Smoothee, which is featured in the new Apple “Powerful” commercial, supports a variety of Apple models, including iPhone 3s/4/4s/5/5s and iPod touch, as well as GoPro Hero 2, 3 and 3+ action cams. Based on the same technology as the big $60,000 rigs used in Hollywood, Smoothee is designed to help capture video and images without the shakes normally associated with handheld video shot on the go.
“Steadicam has a long and rich history with cinematographers all over the world. Thanks to extensive research and development and a dedication to creating the world’s greatest images, the capabilities that have made Steadicam a de facto standard on film sets, studio productions and live events are now available for devices like Apple iPhone and GoPro,” said Steve Tiffen, president and CEO, the Tiffen Company. “Steadicam Smoothee appeals to everyone, from skateboarders filming heart-stopping moves to iPhoneographers capturing an unexpected city adventure. We have even had the honor of having Steadicam Smoothee shown in Apple’s new ‘Powerful’ commercial.”
The patented Smoothee is geared for all skill levels, from novice to expert videographers, and the out-of-the-box system requires little setup. The lightweight camera stabilizer features a mono-frame metal structure and ships with an interchangeable mount for expanded capture options. The Steadicam Smoothee, with its bonus pack, retails for $149. tiffen.com
