But an iPhone 4 capturing 720p video, that might be why you would buy one. Actually, when I'd first read about it, I'd thought that using it with the Flip might make sense, but now, the iPhone 4 makes even more sense.
Strangely enough - and don't you love how things come together? - I popped over to Tiffen's site to see whether there's any further updates about the Smoothie, and there's a press release dated June 18 [talk about timing!]
The Tiffen Company, award winning manufacturer of still image and video accessories, announced fourth quarter availability, of the Steadicam Smoothee, the new “easy to use right out of the box” camera stabilizer. The Smoothee, comes with a camera mount, and will sell at retail for under $200. The Smoothee can be used with the Apple iPhone 3GS, Motorola DROID, or the Flip Mino video camera, with additional models to follow.Fourth quarter and under $200? Could be interesting. Though I'm kind of puzzled that in a press release dated June 18th, they mention the iPhone 3GS, but not the iPhone 4. Weird.
The Steadicam Smoothee is approximately 8”W x 14.5” H x 2.5” D (20.3 x 36.8 x 6.4cm) in operating configuration. Each of the individual patented quick release removable camera mounts can also serve as a tabletop stand or can be mounted to any tripod with a standard ¼ x20” camera mount. Also included with the Steadicam Smoothee is an easy to follow instruction sheet and carrying strap.
