The Tiffen Company, a manufacturer of award-winning imaging accessories, has announced the availability of revolutionary camera stabilizer Steadicam SOLO. Perfect for both DSLRs and camcorders, the SOLO can be used handheld, as a monopod, or with a Steadicam arm and vest. Its sleek and lightweight frame makes it the perfect stabilizer for DSLR videography, and its durability matches that of the larger, professional-grade Steadicam models.
Capable of being folded to a highly compact 25 x 6 inch (64 x 15 cm) profile, the system readily supports cameras weighing up to 10 lbs. (4.5kg). The closely engineered three-axis gimbal design enables the most precise movements and incomparable stability demanded by professional operators, while the ergonomic foam handle and grips--which control the four-section telescopic post--provide a high level of comfort during the most challenging of operations. Bringing versatility to the set, the SOLO effortlessly converts to a monopod mode for shooting from confined spaces.
Other features include a quick-release camera mounting plate, push-on lock, push button release, positive positioning clamping, standard ¼-20 and ⅜-16 camera mounting, and simple dual knob fore-aft vernier adjustment.
The Steadicam SOLO is available as an upgradeable hand-held camera stabilizer or as a complete system with sled, arm and vest. Steadicam SOLO is now available for $499.
