Steadsnap is the invention of Dmitri Tchernomourov and Yuri Markarov. The idea came out of necessity as Dmitri is a professional medical photographer. The problem is it's difficult to transition between shots that do or don't require the use of a tripod. As a photographer not only is this flexibility necessary, you need to be able to make the transition quickly. With traditional products you're putting your expensive gear at risk every time you make this transition. Their ingenious little product solves all these issues.
They're on Kickstarter and they're asking for helping getting this idea into production. Check out their promo video below and check out their Kickstarter page by clicking here
