The digital revolution has given consumers the ability to expand their creativity in ways never before possible. Whether itís a family video, a childís winning goal at a soccer game or budding videographer experimenting with creating his or her own movies, consumers of all skill levels and ages have fully embraced digital imaging. To enhance their imaging experience and improve the look and feel of their videos, consumers can turn to Manfrotto, a world leading manufacturer of support products, and its new, versatile stabilization system - the 585 ModoSteady. A three-in-one, hybrid camera stabilizer, ModoSteady is the latest addition to the popular Modo family of support products for compact point and shoot digital cameras and camcorders.
Featuring a unique, patented design, Manfrotto ModoSteady is compact and folds flat for effortless portability, ensuring that it will fit in any bag or case. Essentially a hybrid support accessory Manfrotto ModoSteady offers three different methods of stabilization. Thanks to its innovative design concept, ModoSteady can serve as a counterbalance stabilizer, provide shoulder support, and double as a table top tripod.
ModoSteady - Comfortable rubber handle
With the extension arm fully extended, the bottom bi-injected soft-hard rubber foot operates as the counterbalance mechanism and is completely adjustable in order to find the proper position and weight to correspond with the center gravity of the camcorder in use. The rubber foot and extension arm can also be folded up and used as a shoulder pad, turning the Manfrotto ModoSteady into an extension of the userís body. Switching between the counterbalance and shoulder mounted mode is also easy, thanks to the quick release camera plate, which rotates 180 degrees. Additionally, for table top use, users can fold up the extension arm and then open the Manfrotto ModoSteadyís comfortable rubber handle, turning the stabilizer into a tripod for both a camcorder or small point and shoot digital camera.
