Tiffen’s Incredible “Big” New Thing

The “biggest” thing from Tiffen is the new Steadicam Curve, the smallest stabilizer ever in the company’s Steadicam line.

 Designed expressly for GoPro Hero cameras, the Steadicam Curve is ultra-light, weighing in at a mere half pound. It also only stands 6 3/8 inches tall, so it’s compact enough to fit into your vest pocket, with its curved handle folding up and locking neatly into a compact frame. The Curve also provides a simple handgrip for GoPro cameras while enabling the capture of smooth video for shoots ranging from extreme skateboarding to weddings and other special events.

Encased in a tough yet light aluminum frame, the Curve includes a comma-shaped arm, mini-gimbal and a standard GoPro quick-release plate. It also includes a Steadicam adjustment knob for fine-tuning the camera balance. Its built-in mount works with the GoPro Hero, Hero 2 and Hero 3, but requires either an LCD BacPac or LCD Touch BackPac. And, much like the new iPhones, the Steadicam Curve comes in a choice of colors: red, blue, silver and black. Retailing at an amazing list price of $99, the Curve is the least-expensive camera-stabilizing product ever made and sold by Tiffen/Steadicam. It may even be the best bargain to date for any high-quality camera product.
