Film crew for your iPhone
Sorry, this product is not available.
If the iPhone is the portable video camera for a new generation, then the Swivl is the dedicated film crew.
Fully automated and utilising motion-sensitive tracking technology, this sleek and sturdy mechanised base does just what the name suggest; with full 360º horizontal-rotation and +10º/-20º vertical movement.
Swivl works by tracking the ‘Marker’, a small lightweight sensor that can be clipped onto clothing, allowing your camera to home in on your exact position. Even when you’re on the move.
You have full control with the marker

You can also use the marker as a mic
With a sensor range of up to 10 metres, an intuitive remote control App and audio recording from the Marker; you can Spielberg to your heart’s content or just focus on your job presentation.

I've see these in use on YouTube, shay Carl is the spokes person for them and its a great tool for bloggers and presentations. Also great for Skype calls when wondering around and chatting. Also perfect for action shots when shooting a video. Great to see this product now becoming available to buy.
