Tiffen Introduces the Steadicam Air

Steadicam and Master Cinematographers, have teamed up to release the Steadicam Air, a monopod that is gas lift activated by a foot pedal for adjustable height

The Steadicam Air brings versatility back to the monopod. With its gas lift spring, the Air makes it easy for professional photographers and cinematographers to raise their heights and never miss a moment. Available in two different configurations, a 25 pound and soon after a 15 pound weight capacity, the Air aids professional image-makers to stabilize and support their equipment.

What sets the Steadicam Air apart from any other monopod is that it’s gas lift and spring activated. Weighing only 3.5 pounds, the Steadicam Air is made up of three sections including one twist leg lock that allows for a 360-degree rotation. The height adjustment is activated by the rubberized foot pedal which allows for a non-slip operation.

Made of carbon fiber, the Steadicam Air is lightweight and compact. It is accompanied by a deluxe carrying bag with added protection and an ergonomic shoulder strap. It is ideal for nature, wildlife, sports, wedding, venue photographers and cinematographers alike.

The Steadicam Air-25 will be available on February 2, 2018 for $499. The Steadicam Air-15 will available at a later date for $399.
