When shooting video with the SlingShot:
1) Hold it in one hand and tuck your elbow in next to your body.
2) For panning or tilting, use your waist to tilt and turn.
That's it! It's like magic how much more steady and smooth your videos will look
What the Press is saying :-
"The SlingShot’s cradle is genius. It’s so simple, yet incredibly versatile.
I’ve gone though more than a handful of tripod mounts for my iPhone, and this blows everything else out of the water.
It’ll accommodate your phone with or without a case, which ... puts it ahead of accessories like the Glif...
VERDICT: The SlingShot is a must-have accessory ...
NATE "BLUNTY" BURR:
...the cheeky Australian reviewer, posted a raving review of the SlingShot on his YouTube channel,
and here it is, on the right, in its entirety.
The SlingShot(tm) allows you to shoot one-handed, turns into an instant table-top tripod, and allows you to mount your phone on any tripod.
The SlingShot's phone cradle fits ANY smartphone, with or without a case and allows charging cables to be plugged in during use.
It's the perfect Android AND iPhone accessory.
The cradle holds ANY smartphone nice and tight, yet gently - even if it has a case on it. Why? Well, for two reasons:
• First, because it can bend and flex like an Olympic gymnast. It can expand to grab hold of even the Samsung Galaxy Note - the biggest 'phone' out there!
• Second, because it has over-molded rubber pads on the tip of each 'wing'. That's just like on your toothbrush handle where there's a rubber area molded over the plastic body. You get the toughness of plastic plus the grippiness of rubber.
BEWARE: Not all cases are created equal...
Some are thin as paper, some are THICK like my Cousin Bob.
The SlingShot's cradle can accept cases up to .660 thick, like this:
The cradle will accept all smartphones, even monsters:
We are METAL-HEADS:
The 1/4-20 threaded BRASS insert is molded into the cradle (it is hand-inserted in the mold before the plastic is injected).
Which means it's really strong and won't back out of the plastic.
Same story on the 1/4-20 threaded STEEL stud in the ball-mount - it plunges right into the heart of the ball and is molded in place as well.
Of course, all of this is part of our patent that we've filed.
BONUS: Here's a video to tell you about the handle in (mildly) excruciating detail:
And: a few nice BIG PRODUCT SHOTS to round it all out:
psst!: We 'shopped in the iPhone screen, 'cause it don't photograph for beans!
