Tiffen is now showing off a new steadicam accessory called the Tango for small HD cameras and HDSLRs – which in their words is “a conventional Steadicam sled at one end of an accessory spar, stabilizing a â€œmini- sledâ€ at the other end to at last yield that long-sought floor-to-ceiling boom range with direct and intuitive control.” That's kind of a mouth full and I think the video shows the whole thing off in an excellent way.
“The lightweight SteadicamÂ® TANGOâ„¢ provides long-sought floor-to-ceiling boom range with lateral reach, full stability, intuitive control and simple, economical construction. TANGOâ„¢ is a game-changing Steadicam accessory for use with todayâ€™s miniature HD cameras according to Steve Tiffen, President and CEO of The Tiffen Company. â€œTANGOâ„¢ is designed to be a straightforward, bolt-on addition for future Tango-compatible Steadicam models.â€
For more information, please visit the Tiffen Tango page. The pricing is undecided and there isn't a release date either.
So, what do you think?
