Featuring CES Digital Imaging Innovation Honoree Steadicam CURVE
The special star of this year’s show is CES’ newest Digital Imaging Innovation Honoree, Steadicam CURVE. The CES Innovation Awards is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products.
A camera stabilization product from the Steadicam brand, CURVE’s compact form factor gives GoPro users the freedom to shoot shake-free video. The CURVE handle can be locked for use as a handgrip for capturing the most adventurous shots, or folded up to fit in a back pocket for maximum portability. CURVE provides Steadicam Hollywood stabilization to the action-oriented GoPro user, promising a flawless shot every time. Steadicam CURVE for GoPro is designed specifically for use with GoPro HERO, GoPro HERO2, GoPro HERO3, GoPro HERO3+ and most recently, GoPro HERO4 Black and Silver cameras.
Also joining Steadicam’s consumer-friendly lineup of gear at CES 2015 is the award-winning SOLO camera stabilizer and monopod. The Steadicam SOLO has been engineered for versatile shooting with both DSLRs and camcorders, and can be used handheld, as a monopod, or with the optional Arm & Vest, making it suitable for a wide range of prosumer and professional video productions.
