Tiffen's Steadicam Curve gets put to the test
Using the Curve's gimbal-mounted handle and rubberized swivel collar
The handle can also be locked in place, for use as a rigid camera mount
The Curve's packaging
While there may now be a slew of compact camcorder stabilizing rigs on the market, it was Tiffen that offered the first such product three years ago, in the form of its Steadicam Smoothee. Late last year, the company began shipping its Steadicam Curve – a device that's similar to the Smoothee, but optimized for use with GoPro Hero actioncams. I recently had the chance to try the Curve out for myself, to see how good it really is at smoothin' out the shakes.
