Portland, OR (PRWEB) April 05, 2012
The SlingShot from WOXOM, the first insanely affordable, easy-to-use handheld smartphone video stabilizer for shooting video or stills, launched today on Kickstarter.com. Invented by WOXOM President Charles Waugh, a professional photographer, artist and design engineer in Portland, Oregon, WOXOM will seek initial production and marketing funding for The Slingshot on Kickstarter.com, the wildly popular website that is the world's largest funding platform for creative projects.
With HD image resolution now a smartphone norm, the SlingShot transforms the way smartphones are used for capturing video by making the camera movement as high quality as the image itself. The SlingShot, with an anticipated retail price tag well below $20, rivals the image stability of semi-professional stabilizer systems costing many times more.
The cradle combines amazing versatility with compact portability in an elegant design.
- Shoot smooth video and tack-sharp stills on any smartphone with one hand.
- Use as an instant table-top tripod to stabilize any smartphone.
- Mount any smartphone on a standard tripod.
Made of an industrial-grade acetal copolymer, Slingshot easily expands to hold any smartphone, even with a case. The cradle is tailored to the iPhone, but it also works with any other smartphone, even up to the hulking Samsung Galaxy Note.
Over-molded rubber pads give it just the right amount of grip.
Even upside-down it holds any smartphone securely, yet gently - without leaving a scratch. It also allows power cords to connect to the cradled phone so watching a movie doesn't drain the battery.
The contoured handle hides a cleverly concealed set of legs.
Legs pop out and turn the handheld stabilizer into an instant table-top tripod - great for shooting video or stills but also for reviewing your videos, watching a movie, doing Facetime, using Skype, or just browsing the web.
Universal smartphone support for use on all tripods.
Since the phone cradle is attached to the handle with a 1/4-20 thread, it can also mount onto any standard tripod or support base.
