A Look at Steadicam Smoothee

Stephen Yagielowicz

As the iPhone’s expanding video prowess continues to make production inroads, some innovative hardware add-ons are entering the market to help mobile shooters excel.

One such offering is the Steadicam Smoothee, which according to its manufacturer is specifically designed and engineered using the same technology as the $60,000 rigs used in Hollywood, which the company has long been famous for.

This patented quick release mounting system also serves as a convenient tabletop stand and features a standard ¼ x20” camera mount.

Taking the technology to diminutive proportions, the Steadicam Smoothee allows its users “to capture incredible video without the shakes normally associated with hand-held video shot on the go, right out of the box, the very first time.”

This patented quick release mounting system also serves as a convenient tabletop stand and features a standard ¼ x20” camera mount. The device features a comfortable and ergonomic hand grip that folds up securely when not in use, while a patented design built around a durable mono-frame metal structure, aids longevity.

While originally designed for the Apple iPhone 3Gs, the Steadicam Smoothee can also be used with the iPhone 4 and 4GS, the Flip Mino video camera, or an iPod Touch, with more models to come.

You can get yours for around $180; including a carrying strap and quick start guide DVD that shows users how to get the best possible shots with their new Steadicam rig.
