Here’s a prosumer piece of equipment that we somehow missed
at CES last week (a more complete look at others is coming soon in Variety
weekly). The Tiffen Steadicam Smoothee for the iPhone 3GS uses Hollywood
technology to allow tracking shots to be taken with the device’s video recorder.
No word on price just yet, nor a release date, but Tiffen
seems to be aiming at a broad audience with this, meaning you can expect it to
be well below the $60,000 studios pay for a proper steadicam.
