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.
