Steadicam Volt Smashes It's Kickstarter Goal


To start with the Steadicam Volt has a pretty powerful team behind it; The Tiffen Company. Besides being one of the world's leaders in lens filters and accessories, they are also the original inventors of "The Steadicam". Famed cinematographer Garrett Brown is working with the team on this project. He's credited as the true innovator behind steadicam technology back in the 70's. It gained popularity, and became a Hollywood cinematography staple, due to his work on the legendary film "Rocky".

There are a few things that can make your video productions go from looking amateur to looking professional, camera movement is one of them. The Steadicam Volt is designed specifically for your smartphone. I'm assuming they used Kickstarter to gauge interest and they smashed their goal with ease.

Specs from their Kickstarter Page:

Engineered to provide the utmost precision and control, the Steadicam Volt™ will enable smartphone users to capture high quality video content with ease. Additionally, the simulated feeling of inertia on the pan axis will improve the overall handing of the gimbal, giving users the stability they need to film with remarkable precision.

Lightweight and folding design enable easy storage and transportation
Accompanying iOS & Android APP allows for precise balance and tuning
Haptic control utilizes Simulated Inertia
Dual operating modes for beginners and experienced users
Uses long life rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries
Accommodates phone sizes with or without case from 100 – 200g in weight and 58 to 80mm wide
Bluetooth enabled
Works in manual mode even after your batteries are depleted

The retail price is going to be $199. Early backers are getting the base model for $139. If you pledge more than $139 you get all kinds of accessories to go with it. You can learn more HERE.
