Barber Tech SteddiePod overview

  • 1Description

Far more than a mere monopod, the SteddiePod Hand-Held Camera Stabilizer/Support from Barber Tech provides thirteen standard stabilizer/support functions from one device, and as it does not use a gimbal or support vest it features a very short learning curve. It consists of a basic fluid head, a center column, and a set of articulating legs. The center column mounts to the legs using a 3/8"-16 threaded mounting bolt, and the head mounts to the columns 3/8"-16 threaded mounting stud. You can combine the head, center column and legs together, or mount the head directly to the legs to get your camera almost to ground level.

The included basic head features variable fluid drag and locking of both the pan and tilt axes by the same lever, increasing the fluid drag until it locks the head. The head includes a sliding camera plate that provides two inches of balance adjustment forward to back with an integrated safety catch. Built into the head is an adjustable "Dutch" plate that allows you to Dutch the head up to 90°. The SteddiePod comes with a soft-sided padded case for storage and transport.

Built-In Dutch Plate
The built-in Dutch plate allows you up to 90° of Dutch to one side. This allows you to use the SteddiePod straight out and dutch the plate so the camera is level, and then you can extend it so you can shoot around corners without exposing your body to potentially dangerous situations.
Shoulder Rig
Mounting the head directly to the removable legs, and extending one leg back to rest on your shoulder positions the other two legs to act as hand-grips, converting the rig into a shoulder rig.
You can use the head mounted to the center column as a monopod, or mount the legs to the bottom of the center column for increased stability.
High Hat / Low Hat / Baby Legs
The Detachable legs feature three sections, providing you with two stages of extensions, and three locking positions that allow you to spread the legs from nearly horizontal, to nearly vertical, and halfway between without needing a spreader. Mounting the head directly to the legs does not interfere with these positions, and allows you to go from low hat to high hat to baby legs.
The head, center column, and legs all use 3/8"-16 mounting, which allows you to mix and match the components as your shot may require. It also makes it very quick to change configurations.

    Barber Tech SteddiePod reviews

    SteddiePod Handheld Camera Stabilizer/Support is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not trustable Although it seems to be a great camera support, after 1 year of using it I finally got very disappointed. When using it as stabilizer, it takes long to get it on balance, and it is not easy to balance. Is not as stable as other flycams I've tried. The worst part, the clips that fold the 3 legs and support the steddiepod wight, are made out of plastic. All 3 clips got broken even when using just a Dslr with a standard lens, and with no other acceesories on it. I asked several times for replacement pieces, they took mounths to arrive and they got broken too. Last time I asked for replacement pieces, they never answered even when I offered to pay for them.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good! Out of the box it was a little squeaky. The grip area is sized for a man's hand, and it is a finger size to large for a woman's hand, and I do not have small hands. I will have to retro fit it to work well for me. I am still happy with it, and will continue to practice using it for my wedding shoots. My favorite part so far is how fast you can go from tripod mode to monopod. The head is very cheap, and will not even securely fasten to my Nikon DSLR cameras. I will have to purchase a new head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A poorly marketed indispensable piece of equipment!!! I've been using the earlier version for more than 10 years. It was stolen last week and I'm lost without it! Went to B&H for a new one and could not see it. Today I found it on the catalog and I will buy a new one! I also read the reviews, here's my 2 cents: 1). Don't even think about using it as a glider, it takes too long to set up properly, it was designed when the $30.000 Glidecam was the only alternative and did an excellent job at a fraction of the cost. 2). Trash the video head and get a good one. 3). Go over the labels with gaffer's tape. (They are an eyesore). Why the 5 stars? If travel a lot and work with crowds of people, you can zig-zag between them with ease while keeping the camera running and getting a respectable picture (yes, with the unbalanced glider feature). Once you find a sweet spot, put it down and it becomes the closest thing to a tripod, no setting up! Need a little crane? Extend it all the way, hold the bottom by your waist and pan. You'll surprised!! Compact, made of carbon fiber, fits in a suitcase. I traveled the world with it. There are places that demand a permit to use a tripod, I've seen security scratch their heads but they didn't say anything when I used it.
