The Stedi-Shot DSLR Trigger has just been announced, and in case you were wondering just what this is, it is a new thumb controlled trigger that specially targets DSLR video cameras. Currently a project over at Kickstarter, the Stedi-Shot DSLR trigger system comprises of a bracket which the camera sits on, ensuring a cable release remains perfectly aligned with the start/stop button that is located on the back of the camera. The cable release is used to activate the start/stop button on the camera, ensuring that no shaky footage is caused by pushing the button. Right now, there are five different camera models which are supported by the Stedi-Shot – the Canon 5D MKII, the Canon 7D, the Canon T2i, the Canon 60D and also the Nikon D7000.
Three different types of handles will keep the trigger assembly in place, where they include the industry standard 15mm handle, a half inch handle that caters for the rigs that have the rod type system of support, as well as one that goes with Zacuto styled handles. [Press Release]
