Barber Tech SteddiePod

BarberTech SteddiePodThis is the funniest CES interview I’ve seen (which isn’t saying much, to be honest). Jeffrey and Jamie get a hands-on demonstration of BarberTech‘s SteddiePod by Eddie Barber, which actually looks pretty handy, all joking aside.

The Barber Tech SteddiePod is billed as the “world’s most versatile camera support” and it’s a handheld camera stabiliser with extra features designed in, so it can be used as a tripod or with the boom extended to give overhead shots. The setup looks amazingly straightforward – there’s a good video on the Barber Tech website – and with just a few minutes easy work, the SteddiePod can be accurately balanced for a video camera.

The SteddiePod starts at $499 and is available from dealers nationwide. Barber Tech is “Emmy Award Winning” and has other products such as camera booms and teleprompters for the TV and film industry.

Interview by Jeffrey Powers of Geekazine and Jamie Davies of the MedicCast and the Nursing Show.

    I’m checking to see if anyone else has had problems with the barber boom.
    I purchased a barber boom 16′ with remote head. After receiving and assembling it, it was evident that it had some design flaws as it does not operate correctly. Within a week after receiving the Barber Boom i called the company to return it.
    They said they do not take returns. Nowhere on there website of during any conversations with them is there statements of nonreturnable. They finally agreed to return 60% of the purchase price.
    Has anyone had these problems with the Barber Boom Company?
