Okay, it's nice that the iPhone 3GS includes the ability to shoot/edit video — but does anyone think said video-taking should be taken seriously?
Zacuto does. The company, which offers a variety of grips, stabilizers, and accessories for digital SLR's and the ultra-high-def Red video camera, now offers the Zgrip iPhone Pro handheld stabilizers for you budding "iSpielberg's." Here's a video clip of the gizmo in action:
Zaguto stuff tends to be pricey (this rig, for DSLR's that record high-def video, is an ouch-worthy US$5,239.25!), and at US$295.00, the ZGrip costs as much (if not more) as the damn phone itself. And for what? A handle and a clamp, basically. Considering how many homebrew/bargain alternatives to the official/expensive Steadicam amateur videographers have cobbled together, it shouldn't be long before someone equally creative home-brews their own "budget Zgrip."
Or they could just save their money and buy a REAL camcorder and stabilizer. Like this one…
Or get gorrilapod for $30 and shoot videos like these (see below)
