Automatically Pans Horizontally and Vertically
Swivl lets you keep subjects in picture effortlessly. Simply pair the wireless marker with the base, then connect your device and begin shooting. The base smoothly follows every move up to 33 feet away. It goes 360 degrees horizontally and 10 degrees down and 20 degrees up vertically.
Wireless Marker for Hands-Free Operation
You can easily record yourself and control the shot using the wireless marker. While recording, you can hold the marker, clip it to your clothes, or wear it around your neck for optimum sound quality and image capture. The marker also allows you to start or stop recording from across the room (only with iPhone and iPod).
iOS Digital Microphone for Crisp, Clear Sound
Swivl captures audio at the source through a lossless wireless connection to the marker for high-quality sound. This ensures voice is recorded clearly, even in noisy environments. (Microphone works only with iPhone and iPod.)
Easy to Set Up and Operate
Get up and running in 30 seconds or less. Simply connect the USB cable and place your device in the grip. Secure the lock bar to hold your camera in place and you're ready to begin shooting. Thanks to Swivl's compact size, it easily fits into a bag or pocket, so you can create video wherever you go.

I was looking for a solution to capture video in a 360 degree rotation as I often work with horses in a round pen and want to see how the horses respond to commands. I would ask my wife to stand in the middle of the round pen and film the horse as it walks, canters, etc based on my hand gestures. Needless to say, my wife would get tired and dizzy from spinning around in place while filming.
Now with Swivl, I simply place my iPhone into the Swivl stand, place the marker on the horses saddle, launch the app and press record and am able to record 360 degrees perfectly. Swivl has a built in tri-pod mount, so I'm able to use my old tripod for a sturdy platform. My wife loves the product, not just because it alleviates her filming and getting dizzy, but she's able to use it in the kitchen for facetime or skype handsfree calls with our daughter who's away at college. The marker has a built in mic, so she's easy to hear what she's saying on the other end.
The Swivl has a solid build to it and has gone from horse barn to house to office with ease because it's battery powered (easy to replace, buy purchasing regular batteries), no cords to carry and the ability work with iPhones 3 and 4. I just ordered another Swivl from Amazon to allow my wife and I to have our own.
Highly recommended to those of you who want to capture video when you're active by yourself or when you want hands free video conferencing at home or in the office. Great product.
It does what is says it will do and I will continue to use it and look for improvements as they develop.
Only reason why I didn't give it a 5 star rating is that the app capability is pretty basic. I'd like to see the Swivl do more things like photos and prescribed motion scans for panoramics . It sounds like those are on the way based on what the company says. If that turns out to be true, I would give it 5 stars.
