Stedi Stock® Photographer, Video and Optical Stabilizer.
The Stedi-Stock Camera Shoulder Brace, Shoulder Mount will help eliminate poor quality pictures due to camera shake.
This is Just a mere fraction of the cost for other professional grade camera stabilization systems!
The Stedi Stock® is a new device that provides incredible balance and stability allowing you to capture those once in a lifetime pictures, make professional videos without the bounce, or to view wildlife, birds and other items of interest thorough your favorite optical device.
At first glance one may assume the Stedi Stock® is some type of hunting device used to steady a gun for hunting, while it does have an available gun rest and it is used widely by outdoors sportsman, the Stedi Stock® is actually designed for all people who use cameras, video cameras, and other optical viewing devices, professionally and individually.
Thanks to modern technology, the digital cameras, rangefinders, spotting scopes and video cameras currently on the market today are lighter and in some cases, much smaller than in years past. However, it is even more difficult to hold these devices steady, which causes your pictures, videos to be blurry or shaky and your observations through a Scope to be almost impossible without the aid of a bulky cumbersome tripod or an attached mono-pod. People flinch, wiggle and shake while attempting to take pictures, or videos and even viewing things through a scope. The Stedi Stock® will assist in overcoming those human tendencies and provide you with pictures and videos of a professional nature. This simple multitasking device also provides stable images when viewing wildlife or nature through a Spotting Scope on the go.
The new technology is also rapidly changing with even faster auto focusing capabilities, and higher resolutions capabilities to catch the fast pace moving speeds of outdoor sports and wildlife. The problem with most camera stabilization systems which have been on the market for some time is that they are more fixed mounts, meaning the operator has to take the time to unscrew and move the camera from a shoulder mount to tri-pod or other device in order to resume shooting. These outdated systems severely limit the ability to capture the action from the beginning to the end, and they still cost several hundred and up to and over a $1000. Just imagine filming a flock of geese coming in for a landing, then being able to take perfectly stable shots as they swim in the water and quickly pan upward when the take back off without ever having to unscrew the video camera to move from a shoulder mount to a tri-pod and back to a shoulder mount. It is no wonder why so many professional video crews on The Sportsman Channel now use the Stedi Stock® exclusively to capture those quick moving wildlife shots.
The Stedi Stock® is just not for sportsman, it is designed to attach to any camera, video camera, or other device using the standard ¼-20 threaded insert. The versatility of the Stedi Stock® and the various options make it quickly interchangeable to catch the action. Whether you ‘re an avid outdoorsman, a bird watcher, professional photographer, or just dad wanting to catch the action at your sons little league game, the Stedi Stock® will give you the professional edge for all your photos at a price anyone can afford.
The Stedi Stock® gives you "STABILITY WITH MOBILITY".

The QUICK RELEASE
The quick release is a cone shape device with a female threaded bottom. The Quick Release will attach to any Mono-Pod, regular camera tripod, or window clamp mount that has a standard 1/4 x 20 camera thread.
The female cone handle on the Stedi Stock® quickly slides over the Quick Release male cone allowing the user to quickly drop the Stedi Stock® on to the cone and instantly have a stable, yet easy side to side turning radius to pan and catch a moving object moving horizontally. If that object then takes off the user can simply pick the Stedi Stock® off the Quick Release and continue filming or snapping the shutter. This allows the user to have rigid stability and still be able to pan smoothly without having to loosen any adjustment screws, or take the eye of the optical device in order to look down for a release mechanism. It also allows the user to immediately revert to shoulder use at a moment’s notice to catch the action.
The Rifle rest simply slips over the quick release and works great with a Mono-Pod which not only doubles as a support for your optical device, a shooting Stick, but will serve as a walking stick in rough terrain. Attach a lanyard to your Mono-pod and always have it handy when you are afield. It will also function great for those super large Telephoto lenses on the 35mm SLR's.
The Rifle rest is a perfect adapted item for the disabled or senior hunter who is unable to steady a gun for a perfect shot, but also is good for the long range shot using a high powered scoped riffle on a mono-pod.
Also use it in conjunction with the Super Clamp on a bench or in a deer blind to provide a non-marring rest.
A large clamp that will attach to a fence post, deck railing, pipe fence, car door, tailgate, tree limb or anything that the jaws will accept up to 4-1/2" for a light-weight, stable platform without the weight and bulk of a tripod. The clamp is made from aluminum, with rubberized and plastic covers to protect finishes. The device has a threaded hole on the top and on the side to position your device in either position. It comes with a double ball swivel with the ¼-20 camera mount thread on top. This allows you to swivel and clamp your device at virtually any angle from the top or side even if the clamp is not level. The term “window mount” comes from a clamp designed to mount on a car window door glass top or door frame, so that the driver or passenger can sit and view from a range finder or scope or take pictures from a car or truck seat.
A one piece collapsible pole that quickly opens up to 67-1/2”, or it can be locked at any height in between for sitting standing or uneven terrain. The Mono-pod has a rotatable ball foot base with a metal point to keep it from slipping on different surfaces. On the top it has the standard ¼-20 thread insert for cameras and other optical devices, as well as the Stedi Stock® Quick Release cone. The Mono-pod comes with a comfortable foam grip handle and wrist lanyard, making it an ideal walking stick. It is made of sturdy light weight aluminum, yet weighing only 13 Oz it is light enough to hook onto a neck lanyard for ready access. When the Mono-pod is collapsed it measures only 21” making it easy to fit into a back pack. The Mono-pod design has become popular as a replacement to the traditional tripod because it is less bulky to carry, requires no set up and leveling, and can be used for other purposes along the way, such as a walking stick. Sorry we only sell the Mono-pod as part of the Stedi Stock® combo packs.
