About this project

 

Steadicam, the ORIGINAL camera stabilization choice of Hollywood, is proud to introduce the Steadicam Volt™.

For the last 40 years Steadicam has given filmmakers the ability to capture smooth and shake free video, allowing them to create some of the worlds most outstanding content.

With the advancements in technology and the every day use of our smartphones, we took our Academy Award Winning Steadicam Stabilizing technology and have now put it in the palm of your hand.

By using the Steadicam Volt you too will have the ability to capture memorable moments professionally and right from your smartphone!

 

 

  

By crossing over the 600% funded threshold, every backer will receive a Steadicam Volt GoPro Adapter when the Volt ships this June (to be INCLUDED, with your current pledge)!  

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

TECH SPECS

Engineered to provide the utmost precision and control, the Steadicam Volt™ will enable smartphone users to capture high quality video content with ease. Additionally, the simulated feeling of inertia on the pan axis will improve the overall handing of the gimbal, giving users the stability they need to film with remarkable precision.

  • Lightweight and folding design enable easy storage and transportation 
  • Accompanying iOS & Android APP allows for precise balance and tuning 
  • Haptic control utilizes Simulated Inertia 
  • Dual operating modes for beginners and experienced users 
  • Uses long life rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries 
  • Accommodates phone sizes with or without case from 100 – 250g in weight and 58 to 85mm wide 
  • Bluetooth enabled
  • Works in manual mode even after your batteries are depleted  

 

 

By using touch, the Volt puts the user in control of endless moviemaking possibilities

Steadicam Volt and DJI Osmo Mobile allow for electronic stabilization. The Steadicam Volt gives you agile precision movement and a true human experience when operating, compared to the DJI Osmo Mobile and all other 3-Axis Gimbals, which makes slow robotic movement relying on software for the framing. You'll notice an example of this in the video where the Osmo lags when panning. Our patent pending technology that allows for this responsiveness will only be available in the Steadicam Volt.

Moviemaking is about the art of telling “your story”. The Steadicam Volt™ allows you to make the moves and frame the shots that will add dramatic effect to your story telling. Keeping the subject “in frame” and the “horizon level” is just one of the advantages of the Steadicam Volt. The Haptic Inertia™, will give you the same type of tactile feedback as professional Steadicam rigs and allow you moves that otherwise can’t be achieved in handheld operation, all while operating on a shoestring budget. When considering the purchase of your next Moviemaking tool, why not look to the Original Inventors of Camera Stabilization?

Steadicam, Helping moviemakers tell “Their Story” for over 40 years!

Risks and challenges

Tiffen is prepared to begin production of the Steadicam Volt at the conclusion of this campaign, however, with the release of any product, there may be unforeseen obstacles that could prevent us from getting certain elements of the product just right. As we strive to provide you with the ultimate user experience, and would not feel comfortable releasing any product until it is perfect, there is always the possibility of delays.

We promise to do our best to keep you as up to date as possible on any and all Volt related developments, and are working to amend as many product issues as possible before the Volt’s official release.
