Manfrotto Introduces Remote Control for ModoSteady Stabilizer

Las Vegas, N.V./CES and PMA- Manfrotto, a world leading manufacturer of professional photo and video support products and accessories, is proud to announce the 585LNC ModoSteady Remote Control.

Designed to effortlessly mount to the Manfrotto ModoSteady three-in-one, hybrid camcorder stabilizer, the 585LNC gives consumers the ability to fully maintain the hands-free operation of their camcorder as it brings key controls directly to the user’s thumb, including zoom and record/stop.

Compatible with Sony and Canon camcorders featuring a LANC plug, the new 585LNC ModoSteady Remote Control mounts directly to the top of the ModoSteady handle. With just one hand, users can fully stabilize their camcorder to minimize vibration as well as have full access to controls for zooming and recording. The 585LNC features a double jack connection (straight and curved) and a coiled cable.

Featuring a unique, patented design, ModoSteady is compact and folds flat for effortless portability, ensuring that it will fit in any bag or case. Essentially a hybrid support accessory ModoSteady offers three different methods of stabilization. Thanks to its innovative design concept, ModoSteady can serve as a counterbalance stabilizer, provide shoulder support, and double as a table top tripod.

With the extension arm fully extended, the bottom bi-injected soft-hard rubber foot operates as the counterbalance mechanism and is completely adjustable in order to find the proper position and weight to correspond with the center gravity of the camcorder in use. The rubber foot and extension arm can also be folded up and used as a shoulder pad, turning the ModoSteady into an extension of the user’s body. Switching between the counterbalance and shoulder mounted mode is also easy, thanks to the quick release camera plate, which rotates 180 degrees. Additionally, for table top use, users can fold up the extension arm and then open the ModoSteady comfortable rubber handle, turning the stabilizer into a tripod for both a camcorder or small point and shoot digital camera.

The Manfrotto ModoSteady Remote Control is available now for $40.00 (list).
