The SteadyTracker Extreme gives you the ability to shoot subject matter that is impossible to shoot otherwise. Take footage as you walk, run, travel upstairs, or even out of a moving car. Expand the creativity of your production by engaging the viewers when making them apart of the action. With the SteadyTracker you can accelerate and decelerate when panning, quickly start/stop, reverse directions while flying, tilt smoothly at the start or end of a boom, or dutch off the axis during a flying move.
The SteadyTrackers have been designed for handheld use, body supported use, and self supported use.
When hand held smoothly circle around your subject, dutching, booming, and tilting on the fly, changing angles and framing just like in music videos. You can do chase scenes, go up and down stairs, jump off walls, go over picnic tables, follow people in cars, shoot weddings, receptions, love stories, sports, documentaries, choirs, plays, etc.
When body mounted it rests on your leg letting you zoom and focus with a heads up position with both eyes free to monitor or look for new scenes. Pull it up to your body with your eye against the viewfinder for traditional zooming style shots. Lift it up on your shoulder and shoot over people's heads while looking in the color monitor for perfect framing.
When self supported you can tilt and pan "monopod style" from the floor or the edge of a table. Set it up like a tripod and get in the shot yourself. This lets you completely rest as you think of your next shot.
