New camera stabilization vest design gives custom-fit feel with a
Steadicam operator ergonomic design


Amsterdam, The Netherlands -- September 6, 2012 -- The Tiffen Company, a leading manufacturer and distributor of award-winning accessories for the still imaging, motion picture and broadcast markets, is pleased to showcase the new Steadicam® Fawcett Exovest™ at the IBC 2012 Exhibition held in Amsterdam from September 7 through 11 (Hall 11 stand G30). Designed by Chris Fawcett, an expert on the physiology of human weight-bearing appliances, the Steadicam Fawcett Exovest is an ultra-light exoskeletal vest that transfers weight into anatomically appropriate areas and bridges areas that should not be loaded. At Tiffen, it is always about the user experience and just how we can support their creative workflows to achieve the best possible image,” says Steve Tiffen, president and CEO, The Tiffen Company. “The Steadicam Exovest engineering and design process is a shining example of just how deep Tiffen goes to build a best of breed product. We hear often how Steadicam is an extension of the shooters, enabling them to envision and capture the shot with our technology supporting their move, not impeding it. Exovest takes it one step further and adds in a comfort level that feels custom-made for that operator.” Steadicam’s outstanding engineering combined with Fawcett’s expertise in anatomy offers operators the industry’s most high-performance and most comfortable vest on the market.

Compared to conventional vests, the Fawcett Exovest is lighter and less constrictive, allowing for better respiration, circulation, transpiration and movement. The resultant feel is of increased lightness and control. After docking, the entire vest may be relaxed by means of one over-center lever, as the upper pad system bed is only under load.
