Gert and Tobias Wagner, the founders of Swift Design, a father/ son team of experienced photo and film professionals on the road on all continents. This lead to the Steadify concept of a simple, robust and fast system with clear advantages over the traditional tripod. Gert is also the inventor of the flexible autofocus, today the standard in every camera. It was a simple idea with a big impact – just like Steadify now.
Gert’s goal of inventions: make everything easier.
Works where Tripods fail.
Steadify breaks away from the tradition of the clunky tripod. It is made for the new camera systems, for dynamic photography and filming.
Applications are manifold: sand, mud, rocks, boat, plane, bike, concert, event, sports, action. Anywhere you dare and can still operate a camera, even one-handed.
Our Customers love Steadify
"On my last Antarctica trip, I stood on a swaying ship deck and was able to take spontaneous photos from the ship with my 300mm lens. Without Steadify, that would not have been possible. The effect is amazing."
"With Steadify, I'm incredibly fast at my subject. I don't have to lug a tripod or monopod through the terrain and yet with Steadify I'm always ready. That's how I managed to get a photo of the rare Australian Black-Shouldered Kite right as it was taking off!"
“I would not like to miss it anymore. On my Brazil trip to the Pantanal region I had Steadify with me and I could photograph jaguars safely from a small boat.“

Offer includes: Steadify, Universal Fork, Pocket Clip, Ball Head with Quick Release Fastener
The Steadify universal fork supports lenses of any length up to 15 kg. The optimal ball head with quick release supports up to 3 kg.
Photo: depending on the lens focal length and the anti-shake function of the camera, appr. 1/10 to 1/30 sec. exposure time. Weight of camera and lens up to 15 kg when using the universal fork.
Video: running while shooting is not recommended, but with a gimbal there is no limit to a completely unleashed camera.
This effect is the strongest feature of Steadify: the weight of camera and lens, binoculars and small spotting scopes, and also gimbals, is almost completely compensated. So you can be endlessly ready for any situation without tiring your arms. At the same time, one remains mobile and flexible. This possibility is otherwise only offered by the elaborate Steadicam.
Steadify is made for photos and film, Steadicam only for film. With Steadicam, you can walk and climb while filming, with Steadify you can do that with a gimbal – and much cheaper.
