"Best" because you can learn to set it up and balance it in just a few minutes (compared to our competitors that usually take 20 minutes to 2 hours), then learn to operate it in about 20 seconds and instantly be smoother than just about anybody coming out of Steadicam's week long, 84 hour intensive $3,500 class.
"Most Versatile" because it performs: "18 distinct functions" (14 right out of the box, 18 with optional accessories), giving YOU Infinite Possibilities! (See all the functions, features, and videos at the www.SteadiPod.com home page.)
Several ways to WIN!
First take the “SteadiPod CHALLENGE”: If You can find (and show us) a better, more versatile Hand Held Camera Stabilizer/Support than the AMAZING SteadiPod, WE WILL BUY IT FOR YOU!!! *
OK, we admit that this is a bit of a trick to make you aware that the AMAZING SteadiPod exists. The truth is that NOTHING ELSE EVEN COMES CLOSE and it will be extremely difficult (if not impossible) for you to win one as described above… SORRY. Now I feel bad.
So here are two real ways to win:
1. If you fill out the entry form below (and click “Submit”), you will be entered into the drawing to WIN YOUR VERY OWN SteadiPod! At the end of the sweepstakes period we will announce the winner.
2. If you already own a SteadiPOD, or if you buy or rent one (FREE week rental available**), shoot and edit your own amazing video showing some awesome shots that you were able to achieve using the SteadiPod, upload it to a site (like youtube) and send us the link. We’ll have our resident Multiple Emmy Award winning Cameraman (Eddie Barber, Inventor of the SteadiPod) look at it. If he picks your video as his favorite, you’ll win a Brand New SteadiPod!
If you already own a SteadiPod, or want to get one before seeing if you won one, if you win, we'll reimburse you for the one you bought!
