The Wild Iron SteadyWheel is a lightweight and portable camera stabilizer designed with the action sports community in mind. In comparison tests done between SteadyWheel mounted cameras and cameras just handheld, the SteadyWheel cameras' results were impressive and incomparably smoother. These tests were performed in both fast and normal moving scenes.
SteadyWheel is built very tough. It's high-impact resistant and waterproof -- good for even saltwater diving. The wheel is made of ABS industrious plastic, and the integrated silver weights and 1/4"-20 camera mount are made of 316 stainless steel. The silver weights are there to sufficiently increase the weight of the wheel, bringing it to a lightweight 1.6 lb.
SteadyWheel can be used with any camera you can fit in it. But its effectiveness diminishes with heavier loads. Action cams and phones are what are ideal, especially for fast moving scenes. Skate-boarders, surf-boarders, and roller-bladers will find that not only can they explore shot opportunities with the SteadyWheel as they move about, but they can also hand it back and forth among one another.
SteadyWheel is 11.5" across and fits into most backpacks. It's Kickstarter-funded and made in the USA.
