Steadicam Smoothee is Shipping for iPhone 4

Tiffen just sent out an announcement that the Steadicam Smoothee for the iPhone 4 is shipping, and the one for the iPhone 3Gs will be out shortly. The Smoothee is a low-cost - $180 - Steadicam for small cameras, and I have to admit that I'm curious to see how well it performs.

B & H actually lists both iPhone models in stock, while Amazon says they are temporarily out of stock.

B & H also lists Smoothee for the Flip, as well as different mounts (that let you switch between the iPhone and Flip) but there's no delivery date for those yet.

B & HSteadicam Flip Ultra Smoothee Mount  [$24.95] - not yet shipping

This sample video was shot using the Smoothee:
