Hauppauge, NY — December 18, 2012 — The Tiffen Company, a leading manufacturer and distributor of award-winning accessories for the still imaging, video, motion picture and broadcast markets, today announced the award-winning Steadicam® Smoothee® system is ready for the iPhone® 5. Now, iPhoneographers from the proud parent to the pro video-blogger can shoot engaging video on the go with the vastly improved iPhone 5, without the jerkiness typically associated with handheld video recording. Combining Smoothee technology akin to Steadicam’s professional $60,000 Hollywood rig systems with the iPhone 5’s 1080p HD video recording capabilities, users can shoot and share crisp, smooth, never shaky footage straight from their iPhone 5.
Developed by Steadicam, the leader in camera stabilization, the patented Smoothee eliminates shakes and lets users “fly” through video capture moments — up and down steps, indoors and outside, through crowds — almost anywhere, with precise, elegant control and ease.
“When the newly designed iPhone 5 was announced this past September with its improved camera optics, it was instantly clear to us that Smoothee and iPhone 5 would be a match made in iPhoneography heaven. We went straight into production to make sure Smoothee was compatible in time for the holidays with iPhone 5’s new thinner, longer design,” comments Steve Tiffen, president and CEO, The Tiffen Company. “A perfect stocking stuffer for any iPhone or GoPro owner, our Smoothee products let users of all technical skill levels create outstanding videos, taking smartphone and the action-packed GoPro video capture to a whole new level of image excellence…and that’s what Tiffen is all about.”
