Lots of news and exciting developments to report about SteadyMaker in early 2016, so let’s get right to it!
Firstly, we are expanding our product range! Now we offer a cellphone stabilizer, to complete our steady lineup, offering stabilization options right from your pocket smartphone, all the way up to heavier cameras such as The BlackMagic 2.5k Cinema Camera. That covers a huge range of stabilizer options. Our cellphone stabilizer is very easy to setup and use and offer the same great stabilization for mobile coverage. If your priority is stabilization anywhere, anytime, this is for you, and it’s a fantastically affordable option for vloggers.
We are launching accessories for our stabilizers, beginning with a vest/backpack support system for our premium stabilizer, the Tank PLUS. The benefits are that the gear takes the weight from long shoots, enabling more accuracy over a longer period of time, taking the stress from the camera operator. Also, the biggest issue with 3-axis stabilizers is how to minimize the up and down ‘bounce’ that you sometimes see when walking/running with one. If you check our video tutorials, we discuss techniques to minimize this, but with the addition of this vest support system, operation becomes even smoother! For all the details, check out both items in our online store.
To celebrate the launch of these items, we are slashing shipping charges to most of the world! Same fast shipping, trackable, via DHL, but now FREE to North America, Europe, Australia and Asia! There is no better time to order a stabilizer.
More exciting things on the horizon….we can’t reveal too much, but there are a few special creative collaborations coming up. Our goal has always been to establish a community of talented people who can really put our products through their paces, and use them in unique, innovative ways, to showcase the world of stabilization and inspire others. Our more attentive audience might have already noticed a couple of videos by a fantastic Parkour team from Australia, BNE Parkour. This is the first in a series of videos from them using our SMG line of stabilizers, showing what can be done with it.
Look out for a more in-depth interview in an up-coming blog, about how they utilized the stabilizer and incorporated it into their dynamic routines.
We are adding videos to our youtube playlist ‘The SteadyMakers‘ showcasing our clients worldwide and how they use their stabilizers in their projects. For example, check out this powerful piece on bullying, and the effect it has on people.
If you own one of our products, email or message us with your work, we would love to feature it on our channel and social media! Also, don’t forget, if you review our product, you will be entitled to a 60USD rebate! For more, check out our post HERE.
Look for more collaborations in the not-too-distant future.
Also, coming up, more upgrades and improvements to our stabilizer lineup….things are just getting started in the world of SteadyMaker…
