Using the Steadicam Curve

Once you are happy that the balance is right your set to go!* If you would like to convert to a grip then connect the handle back onto the Curve’s arc, tilt your GoPro camera back slightly, grab it and head down the slopes or into the bowl. For the more adventurous type, you can choose to turn the Steadicam Curve around and hold it by the arc and grab that popular selfie and share with your friends.
*Steadicam Curve will currently balance with LCD screen, a weight kit will be introduced imminently for those who do not have the LCD screen.
What is Steadicam?
The introduction of Steadicam in 1976 revolutionised the world of film and video. Over the past 3 decades, Steadicam has been an invaluable, dynamic production tool in the industry. New generations of Steadicam Camera Stabilising Systems have been comprehensively redesigned to unleash endless creative possibilities. Tiffen offers you a complete line of state-of-the-art models to meet your film and video needs. Tiffen is committed to support the needs of the motion picture, broadcast and professional imaging industries with the latest state-of-the-art Steadicam technology to meet your film and video needs.
A Steadicam essentially combines the stabilised steady footage of a conventional tripod mount with the fluid motion of a dolly shot and the flexibility of hand-held camera work. While smoothly following the operator’s broad movements, the Steadicam’s armature absorbs jerks, bumps, and shakes.
