iSteady Shot ARC Camera Stabilizer for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS

About a year ago, Julie told you about the iSteady camera stabilizer for iPhone and iPod nano.  After some time and some changes, the iSteady Shot ARC is available to pre-order.  This camera stabilizer supports your iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS while you take videos and eliminates the shakes and jitters you often get with hand-held cameras – much like the SteadiCam used in the movie industry.  The iSteady Shot ARC also works with most cameras weighing under one pound.  There will be a limited edition of 200 units, planned for release this month.  You can pre-order them now for $175.00 at the iSteady website.  After the limited run is sold out, a waiting list will be started.

    I don’t get the motivation for these sort of products. The benefit of a camera in the mobile is you can take a shot as it happens, without having to prepare by taking a separate camera each time right? And that shot will generally be OK with today’s mobile cameras.

    But if you buy something like this, it assumes you go prepared to take a picture cause you need to carry it with you. For the same $175, you could get a 14MP, CCD sensor with 7x Optical zoom and a REAL flash from Olympus/Sony/Panasonic etc. etc. (plus a heap of other features the iPhones doesn’t have). So again, why would anyone buy this?

    Yeah this really doesn’t make any sense. Why not spend that 175 on a real camera in the first place?

    Is it me or does it look like the sides cover up where the microphone is? Hope you meant to shoot MOS, because you are now.
