The Steadicam division of the Tiffen Company, a leading manufacturer of award-winning digital imaging accessories, has released a new Steadicam Smoothee mount for Drift action cameras, expanding its collection of stabilizer options for filming enthusiasts and professionals.
The Steadicam Smoothee, which is featured in the new Apple “Powerful” commercial, lets users capture the action using Drift cameras, without the shakes normally associated with hand-held video.
“The Steadicam Smoothee is helping shape a new generation of filmmakers,” comments Steve Tiffen, CEO and President, The Tiffen Company. “Cameras like the Drift offer a new level of versatility we once could have never even imagined. Combine that with the Hollywood ingenuity of Steadicam, and you enable a new class of filmmakers to capture their unique visions with clarity and quality. This latest addition to the Smoothee line continues to change the game for what’s possible in the world of small-camera filmmaking.”
The lightweight, agile and easy-to-use Steadicam Smoothee features an innovative, patented design built around a durable mono-frame metal structure. The new Drift mount expands the list of models compatible with the Steadicam Smoothee line to include: Drift HD170 Stealth, Drift HD, Drift HD720, Drift HD Ghost and Drift Ghost-S.
