I was given the job of producing a series of videos that explain how to shoot with the Steadicam Smoothee. The goal was to show how it worked in basic, more advanced and fun options. This one deals with the Basic level.
The Smoothee is the lightest, easiest Steadicam to use. It fits to iPhone 4, iPod Touch, iPhone 3GS and Flip HD cameras at the moment and only weighs about a pound. I've been playing with the prototype for the GoPro Hero HD, and that mount will be coming fairly soon.
I used the iPhone 4 for all the POV shots in this series. The iPhone 4 mount fits the iPhone 4S, too.
Like all Steadicams, there are things to know, things to avoid and things to play around with. I hope this video series helps owners to get the best results.
