Experience becomes technology

The idea for Steadify came from real-world challenges.

Steadify is worn close to the body and stabilizes from the hip. This means: total freedom of movement for photographers, filmmakers, nature watchers.

Steadify completely compensates for the weight of cameras, gimbals, and binoculars, offering the luxury of endless standby without any effort.

Suitable for any device

Steadify stabilizes everything: cameras, binoculars, spotting scopes, etc.

Maximum stability

Steadify forms a stable triangle with the body, therefore it is clearly superior to a normal monopod

Unmatched flexibility

When changing position spontaneously, Steadify is as agile as you are

No fatigue

Steadify absorbs any weight. The arms remain constantly relieved

The dormant pole

Steadify stabilizes from the hip, the most resting point of the body

Works everywhere

Sand, mud, rocks, boat, plane, bike, concert, party, and in the tightest spaces: Steadify works where tripods fail.

Comments from our customers

Ich mag es nicht mehr missen. Auf meiner Brasilien Reise in die Pantanal Region hatte ich Steadify dabei. So konnte ich diesen Jaguar sicher von einem kleinen Boot aus fotografieren.

Mit Steadify bin ich schneller an meinem Motiv. Ich muss kein Stativ oder Monopod durchs Gelände schleppen und bin mit Steadify trotzdem immer bereit. So gelang mir das Foto des seltenen australischen Black-Shouldered-Kite genau beim Abflug…

Stephen Thomson, Australien

Ein erstaunliches Produkt. Auf meiner letzten Antarktisreise gelang es mir, auf einem instabilen Schiffsdeck stehend, mit meinem 300-mm-Objektiv spontane Fotos vom Schiff aus zu machen, was mir ohne Steadify nicht möglich gewesen wäre.
