    After viewing the footage from a recent Cars & Coffee, taken with my action-cam, I realized I could have accidentally shot the latest shaky-cam horror film. I needed a camera stabilizer, but didn't want to pay DJI or GoPro prices. Lo-and-behold the Steadicam Volt, which was priced at a small fraction of those premium-branded stabilizers. After about 10 minutes of understanding how to stabilize my camera in the device (instructions aren't perfect, but I was able to figure it out after some fiddling with the device and its included counter-weights), the rest was pretty easy. Mount phone/camera, turn on device, and start filming! The FPS head-bobbing and unintended Blair Witch shaky-cam were easily smoothed out with this device. I look forward to using this over and over again, and it even collapses into an included bag for easy carry!

    After comparing this to the DJI Osmo I found that the Volt fit my needs much better. Panning was more accurate and battery life was longer. The Volt also allows you to mount a GoPro camera which is an added bonus. My family used the Volt to help film many of our activities recently... fishing on the boat, sports, parties and other activities. It produced a stable image while being easy to use. My son even filmed me reeling in a big fish this past weekend. Definitely a worthwhile investment to help preserve family memories! Very happy with my purchase.

    Bought in August just Before my Trip to Africa!

    I bought my Volt just one week before my trip to Africa to use with BOTH my Smartphone and my GOPRO HERO 6 Black. I must say I ended up using it almost always with the GO PRO BECAUSE its camera is so much better. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!. The freedom to create beautiful camera moves, and instantly react to the animals instead of waiting for any electronics to kick in made my footage possible. Feel free to go to my You Tube channel to see my personal results- 2mabender, and here is a direct link to one of them if this is allowed here. https://youtu.be/_LkgC6LcdTY or https://youtu.be/F2hPoFDy1qY You be the judge if it is for you!

    Ok, so although the wait seemed forever!! I'm SO pleased I held on. I purchased the Volt from my local store the minute I saw add to cart. I've been waiting to get my hands on this for real estate videos on my walk through. Following the instructions and online video I was happy to have this setup in no more than 5 minutes. I'll be testing all week and can't wait to see the results but so far I'm very happy. I use GoPro HERO5 (comes with mount in the box which you'll need to swap over from smartphone mount)

    Steadicam Volt- Sports Parent Review! *********

    Posted
    Peter

    I backed this on Kickstarter. Almost no time at all with a learning curve, I love recording my kids' activities when they are out on the field of play Soccer, Baseball, Basketball or Football! It's perfect for anyone who doesn't want the shake in their videos especially when running down the sidelines or holding the unit for any extended period of time. I recommend this for all those sports parents. It's a must have!

    Shoots steady videos anywhere!

    I just got my Volt, it is very easy to set up and balance using the Tiffen/Steadicam video on Vimeo. They made it easy for a novice, the Volt holds on to my phone extremely well and once I turn on the video it is incredibly stable, even while running or jumping! I am very impressed and look forward to filming family events like a pro!

    The product is horrible. DON'T BUY! CONS: 1 - it's almost IMPOSSIBLE to balance 2 - if you will gonna use with GoPro, the number 1 is worst 3 - every movement that you make produces a noise click, easily captured by mic of phone or GoPro. Your movies will be a trash! 4 - I already told you that is impossible to balance with GoPro? PROS: I didn't find!

    Fail

    Just got mine today and I have to say it sucks! No joystick control or no lock in place having to move manually needs very steady hands without a fluid head. And I don't like that the gears and circuit board is exposed and not sealed underneath the handle base. Tiffen definitely dropped the ball for a long anticipated product. I will be returning mine back to bestbuy.
