Good to know:
The Rollei Steady Butler *Mobile* films not just in the usual landscape format, but also allows you to take pictures in portrait format - perfect for Instagram, Snapchat etc. You control the gentle, smooth movements using the sensitive joystick. The free Rollei app for iOs and Android provides additional functions such as zooming in and out with the ergonomically positioned rocker switch, starting photo and video capture, reliable face recognition, panorama mode and automatic subject tracking. For spectacular time lapse films, you even have three different functions at your disposal: Apart from conventional static time lapse, you can also choose Motion Time Lapse for dynamic pan shots, while Track Lapse mode allows simultaneous movement of camera and subject. To avoid the frustration of having to interrupt a long, power-consuming outdoor shoot because your smart phone battery has run out, a fully-fledged 4,000 mAh power bank is integrated into the Rollei Steady Butler Mobile. Yet it still only weighs a modest 472 g. The floating tripod can be positioned securely on the accompanying mini tripod. The 1/4" connection on the base ensures secure attachment to a wide range of compatible tripods. The second 1/4" thread can be used for installing optional accessories, such as LED lights, microphones etc., while the sturdy case provides protection against wind and weather and also damage during transportation. Of course, a compatible USB charging cable and detailed instructions are also included. The padded clamping jaws are suitable for all current smartphone models up to a 6" screen diagonal and a maximum weight of 200 g.
