Not Bad For a First Gen,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Steadicam Smoothee for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S (Camera)
I've had this for about a day, and I'm one of those that has tried to construct one of these myself. I like it, and here's some noteworthy points:
1. It's light, around 5 lbs which is great if you don't want your arm to tire out but the smallest wind or tap will still shake the camera.
2. You're supposed to "guide" the camera by using your thumb to keep it positioned the way you want. This contact added shake to the camera but is needed to keep the camera from drifting while you move with it. A cotton ball affixed to the thumb area with some 2 sided tape provided enough cushion against the thumb contact but still gave the needed control for shooting.
3. Practice, practice, practice. The pros have been doing it for years, don't expect feature film quality your first outing.
4. If you shoot video with an iphone and you want to actually move and have the end result be watchable? Buy this.
I have been waiting years for something like this, and they did not let me down. Once again, you need to practice with it, but the quality and watch-ability of what you shoot will increase X 10.

Will this work with a Flip or Kodak Zi8 video camera?
