Tiffin Steadicam Curve: Cooler, Cheaper, and Cleaner than the Alternative

With four active kids I have files and files of blurry digital pictures of them. I have tried cameras with stabilizing functions but sometimes you are just in motion.  Earlier this month I had the opportunity to meet the team from Tiffin at CES and learn about their newest rendition of the steadicam the Steadicam Curve.

WHY THE TIFFIN STEADICAM IS COOLER, CHEAPER AND CLEANER THAN THE ALTERNATIVE

COOLER

This is my crew pre-steadicam



They love hitting the slopes but they also love taking video of their days in the Terrain Park. I have stopped worrying about the crazy jumps years ago but I still worry about them sliding down the hill holding their camera in their hands trying to get a great video, watching the camera instead of watching where they are going (they are very safe boarders but I still worry).

With the Tiffin Steadicam Curve they can get that really cool video while paying more attention to where they are going than to taking the video. As a mom I don't have to worry about the kids cruising down the slopes and taking video as they go. They can keep their eye on the slopes and not the shot - they know they are going to get a great shot.

CHEAPER

In a side by side comparison the Tiffin Steadicam is much cheaper than the alternative.

Tiffin Steadicam Curve                        Should Surgery

$99.95                                                       $11,978

As you can see the Tiffin Steadicam Curve wins every time. Even if you have a rocking health insurance plan the deductible alone will set you back over $2500 for the shoulder surgery. (Unfortunately, I know this first hand. Wish we had known about the steadicam years ago).

CLEANER

When I came back from CES and was telling my kids about the steadicam they just cooly replied "Yeah, sounds like it would be alot cleaner than the alternative". I asked them what the alternative was and they showed me this video:



Actually, the steadicam by Tiffin is cleaner, quieter, and safer than trying to strap your camera on the head of a chicken.

Thanks to Techlicious for introducing me to the Tiffin team. The only thing is... I wish I had found out about this years ago. I think this may be my newest favorite baby shower gift. I'll include a note: Trust me - you'll need this.
