Students review the Steadicam Smoothee

In January of this year, HHH posted a story about Tiffen’s Steadicam Smoothee — a nifty looking camera stabilizer for your iPhone 3GS. We were only able to play with it for a few minutes, so we couldn’t conduct any proper tests. But thankfully, one of our readers has just contributed a full review.

Bart Weiss teaches Video for iPhone at the University of Texas at Arlington.  We met during NAB a few weeks ago.  He and his students were recently given a Smoothee demo unit.  After putting it through its paces, they submitted this report.  Our thanks to Bart and his team of student media-makers!

You can find the Smoothee on Amazon right here.

Shang-Chi Director Directed From His iPhone

I enjoyed reading this brief ScreenRant story, so I thought I’d share it here. It describes how Destin Daniel Cretton, the director of Marvel’s Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings, was forced to direct an important scene via his iPhone while in the hospital for the birth of his child! Sadly, it doesn’t divulge the details of that unusual workflow, but it’s an excellent reminder that we’re all toting the world’s most versatile piece of filmmaking gear in our pockets and purses!
