iSteady Shot Arc now available for pre-order

Hand-held stabilizer works with small videocams

The iSteady Shot Arc is a new handheld camera stabilizer designed for the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, the iPod Nano and other small (under one pound) digital video devices, including point-and-shoot cameras, Flip Video cams and so on. It uses a small counterweight to allow for smooth, fluid motion while handheld without adding a great deal of extra weight or bulk. The device itself weighs only 12.4 ounces.

As a test of the newly-redesigned Arc model, the LA band Vintage Trouble and their director Alen Petkovic used the devices and a set of iPhone 4s to film an entire music video for the band, now available on YouTube.

The unit, which comes pre-assembled, is designed to be held in front of the user while walking or moving, and features a 360-degree two-axis gimbal along with soft rubber-bound grips. It is made with aircraft-grade aluminum, stainless steel and Delrin, and folds for easy storage or still shots. The mounting plate features a number of holes allowing for comfortable positioning of a wide rage of lightweight video cams. The weights are adjustable for precise counterbalancing with different devices.

The iSteady Shot Arc is available for pre-order on its first production run of 200 for a cost of $175, not including sales tax and shipping.
