SteddiePod – A Tripod, Monopod, Jib And Boom All In One? Yes!
I almost walked past the SteddiePod booth at NAB. Lucky for me and them, they had some well trained booth workers who drew me in long enough to get my attention and get me to take a serious look at their product. Meet one of those enthusiastic people in this short video we shot at their booth.
At first I thought, “Oh, great. Another camera stabilizer that doesn’t work well.” Boy, was I wrong! I’ve owned and worked with a number of stabilizers and have never been as excited about a product as I was the SteddiePod. You’ll see why when you watch the video.
(If you aren’t able to see the video, you can go to YouTube and watch it there.)
The SteddiePod has many functions and performs them all well. With its fluid tripod head and three stable legs, it serves as a highly portable tripod. It works great as a handheld stabilizer and you can quickly get high, stable shots when extended to its full 77 inch height. It serves well as a handheld jib arm. It does so much yet only weighs a little over 5 pounds.
Seriously, if you are wanting some smooth moving camera shots, the SteddiePod should be at the top of your wish list. It is on mine.
