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.
