Tiffen Announces New Steadicam® Phantom
Hauppauge, NY - The Tiffen Company announces the Steadicam Phantom, a low cost big rig that performs like the top-of-the-line Ultra2.
At $44,950, the base system starts with a 29 to 49 inch telescoping carbon fiber post coupled to the Ultra2 stage - with a patented +/- 20º tilt head - and terminates in a new solid base. Outfitted with the Ultra2 Gimbal, SD LCD Color 700 nit monitor, dual monitor mounts, frameline generator, on-screen artificial horizon, and a dual battery mount for 12 and 24 volts (either V-Lock or Anton Bauer), the Phantom fills the need for a heavy duty, high performance, and low-cost rig. Also included is the G-70 Iso-Elastic Stabilizer Arm, Ultra2 Vest, Docking and Balancing bracket, add-on weights, and the Steadicam logo hard sled case with wheels.
Options include the patented "go-to" motorized stage (plug and play) and a variety of monitors, including the 8.4", 1400 nit HD UltraBrite2, plus batteries, chargers, cases, cables, vehicle mounts, and other professional accessories.
Like all Tiffen Steadicams, the Phantom is designed to be user-friendly, field-serviceable, tool-free, straightforward, and versatile so the operator can quickly and easily configure the rig to the best advantage for each shot. Change the sled length, balance, inertia, and go to low mode in a heartbeat, all without tools, extra parts, or fuss and bother. Solid, versatile, and fast.
