Steady Web SWAK-SC019 overview

  • 1Description

The SteadyWeb String Tripod from GFK Products, LLC provides increased stability when using any device that can be mounted to a traditional tripod, such as cameras, camcorders, spotting scopes, rangefinders and binoculars. Simply clip SteadyWeb onto your belt loop, or any stable anchor point. Then, unlock the line and screw the bolt into the tripod mount threads, then lock line in place at a desired length, pull the line taut and begin shooting.

With the inclusion of long optical and digital zoom lenses, as well as HD video in most cameras, it has become difficult to hold a camera steady--even with image stabilization. It is also inconvenient to carry a cumbersome tripod at all times in order to counter these situations. This String Tripod does not need to be opened up and placed on the floor, so you can also use the SteadyWeb in places traditional tripods are prohibited, including museums and many public venues.

The SteadyWeb is an inexpensive and simple device that fits in almost any pocket or camera bag, and helps stabilize cameras in a variety of different situations, including shooting over crowds, panning video, or handshake in low-light conditions.

Steady Web SWAK-SC019 reviews

SteadyWeb String Tripod is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't last the distance I have given this two stars as I think the concept is great but the design is a let down. I took this out with me to a motorcross event and was using it out on the track to catch the action. At first as I crouched down I found the lock would come loose and just when I need my stabilisation the most the tension would release and I would be on my own to freeze the action. After about an hour of use the cord simply snapped from the metal screw attachment below the camera. I am a woman and I am not very strong at all so that is simply unacceptable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one Gizmo that actually works! I use this for hiking. I am already carry the maximum of weight I can handle, but still do not want to limit the pictures I can take. This String Tripod works great! It steadies the camera just enough that I can take many low light photos that I couldn't take without it. It connects to the camera very quickly. I keep it connect to my belt loop. I hardly know it is there.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Two In a Row With Non-standard Screw Received the first one, but the screw on the end of the string was not the standard 1/4-20 tripod/camera size or thread. I even checked it on both an inch and a metric screw checker to verify this. Nor was it the other standard 3/8 tripod screw. Thanks to the great B&H customer service, I was able to return it for a prompt replacement, but I received the second one with the same problem. I got it to work only by cutting the string off just above the screw (in order to get rid of the non-standard screw) and then tying a loop in the string so I could attach it to an eye' with a 1/4-20 thread (the type readily available at B&H in photography accessories -- example: a camera screw adapter for a camera strap).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gizmo that actually works! This string tripod really works! I use it when hiking since there is no way I can carry a big tripod. It is very quick to use and very light. It is also effective. I can take pictures in low light that I otherwise wouldn't get. I am so pleased with it, this is actually the second one I bought so I could keep it in my backpack.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Portable, lightweight, somwehat steady I've used it once at a videography gig. It worked pretty well, but my usual method of attaching a collapsable tripod to add weight to the camera kept the video steadier than using the string tripod. Would be good for venues where using a tripod as a weight is totally impossible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple, but effective. Great to use with a DSLR to steady your hand-held shots on the fly, especially for over-head shots. The device is simple and literally takes up no space and can be kept in your pocket.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from USELESS -- Screw is Not 1/4-20 This might be useful in some situations, but I really can't tell because the one I received has a screw at the end of the string is not a 1/4-20 screw so it won't screw into a camera base or L-bracket base. Unfortunately for me I did not discover this until about one week after the 30-day return period -- so I am stuck with a useless lemon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product for a non-IS lens Well done, good product that exploits simple physics principle but useless with stabilised lens. I tested it with IS on and off and there is no difference when IS is on, I would even say that IS is a it better.
