The Tiffen Company, the leading manufacturer of imaging accessories for the consumer/professional imaging and the motion picture and broadcast television industries, announced it will debut and demonstrate the new Steadicam M-2 modular camera stabilizer at the 2009 Cine Gear Expo in Los Angeles, California.
Designed for the demanding camera operating requirements of modern broadcast and cinema applications, the Steadicam M-2 features a sleek, new top stage that seamlessly integrates the revolutionary Steadicam Volt horizontal stabilization technology for reduced weight, height, and a simplified rig design.
Expected to be available in mid-summer 2019, the Steadicam M-2 expands the open architecture of the industry-leading Steadicam M-1 with new lighter weight components in a mix-and-match configurable system to meet any camera operator’s needs. It includes a new ultra-high precision Volt-ready gimbal and rigid carbon fiber posts available in various diameters and lengths for increased customization.
The new lightweight base is available with either gold mount or v-lock battery plates and an optional hot-swappable third battery mount. The streamlined monitor mount uses industry-standard 60mm rod spacing and further reduces the overall weight while maximizing viewing angles in either normal or low-mode operation.
