Steadicam Volt won’t get you any more stability for $200

This the upcoming Steadicam Volt ($200 pre-order). It connects to your smartphone to turn your epic videos into professional looking cinematographic looking features.  Yes, anything from a kid riding a swing or a trip to the zoo will have a lot more drama added to it with the Volt’s motorized steadicam.  No solid reviews have emerged as of yet, but other brands that deliver the same quality sell for about double, even triple, the price.

My main concern would be if the noise of the motor interferes with the audio during shooting, which has been a major issue with models made by other manufacturers.  It might be a deal breaker for those quiet moments, but we will have to wait and see.  Drops in a few months.
