Tiffen Steadicam® Volt™
The Tiffen Volt™ is the most sophisticated „Gimbal“ control.
Two little brushless motors controlled via electronical gyros and accelerometers gives a safe feeling for a stabilized picture frame and furthermore the control via your hand guidance on the Steadicam® is unrestrained.
The masterbrain with the adjustment knobs is in a small box which has to be mounted in front of the topstage.
The mounting of the Tiffen Volt™ onto the Tiffen Archer and Shadow Steadicam® will need around 3 hours. 
To modify the GPI-PRO Rig around 1.5 hours in our workshop.
To modify the Betz-Tools RIG around 1.5 hours in our workshop.
Other Tiffen Volt modifications for 1.5″ post Rigs will follow shortly.
The new Volt docking bracket allows a safe and quick docking direct onto the Gimbal.
