[ music ] ^M00:00:03 [ background music ] >> Hi, I'm Molly Wood from CNET.com. This is CES 2008. This is a first look at the Manfroto [assumed spelling] Moto Steady. Manfroto, a name well known to professional videographers. Videographers, I know. This is more of a consumer level product however, the Moto Steady. It's a three in one stabilizer. I am not super familiar with the ways of the camera, so I invited our associated producer, Randall Bennett from our New York office up here to demonstrate this for us. It's kind, and also give a little opinion about you know, how it's working for you. >> So it's pretty interesting. I mean it is consumer level, I guess they say the price is like a hundred and eighty five dollars. >> Hundred and eighty five dollars. >> It's a little bit pricey to someone who's really excited about their, you know, getting their soccer moments perfect. But you know, it's, it does a pretty good job of stabilizing everything. You can kind of walk with it, move it around. And you know, I think it does the job, what it advertised for sure. >> Okay. But that's not all. >> Exactly. >> It transforms. >> There's a couple different things you can do with it. One is in the handle here you can pull this out, turns right into a little tripod you can see. >> Right. >> And you can set it down there for those extra small shots I guess. >> And then this, this dealie kind of folds up too. >> Exactly. >> So it's a little bit - >> It'll fold up so it sits on your shoulder. >> - more compact. >> I'm not sure exactly the specifics, we'll fold it up later. But it'll fit on your shoulder so you can hold a more steady shot. >> Right. >> So - >> And it's, I mean again, it is very much like a transformer. Like to do that you kind of - >> You have to push a button in and turn things around. >> So it's a little bit 007, little bit transformer style. >> There we go. >> But I think you know, we've had it here for a few minutes and Randall has definitely given it his seal of approval. >> Yeah, for sure. >> Cause he hasn't put it down. >> It's pretty good. It's, you know, like I say, the only caveat for me is it's a little bit pricey. >> Right. >> So you have to be really serious about your camcorder videos for sure. >> Which as we know, in the You Tube generation people are - >> Exactly. [ background music ] >> - more and more these days. All right, this is the Moto Steady from Manfroto, available now, hundred and eighty five dollars. Thank you Randall Bennett. >> Thanks Molly. >> For CNET.com I'm Molly Wood at CES 2008. ^M00:01:57 [ music ]
