The Hague Camera Supports Mini Motion Cam Steadicam stabilizer is now available with a smart phone mount which allows you to use your phone or iPod as a camera to create smooth glidecam footage. This additional phone mount can also be removed and then the MMC camera stabilizer can be used as a standard camera stabilizer with DSLR and video cameras. The phone adaptor is a very useful device and, when used with phones with large screens like the Apple iPhone, you have a very good viewing screen to monitor your footage.
HAGUE CAMERA SUPPORTS PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The Hague Motion Cam with Smart Phone Mount is a handheld stabilizing system which enables phones or iPods to be used to create super smooth "Steadicam type" shots. The Hague MMC Mini Motion Cam is the original small handheld camera stabilizer designed and manufactured by Hague Camera Supports in Nottingham, England.
The new version of the MMC-SPM is our most advanced and exciting model incorporating a new streamlined design, the highly advanced H2 gimble, and it now supports phones, iPods and standard cameras up to 1kg (2.2lbs) straight out the box. The original MMC set a precedent as the world’s first low cost, yet highly effective, stabilizer and the current model just takes it to the next level. This compact unit eliminates camera shake and allows the user to create those true floating shots.
The most important part of a stabilizer is its gimble as it essential that the handle is totally free moving. The MMC has always had the smoothest moving gimble of its type making it far superior and more effective than any other ball type stabilizer on the market. The new Hague H2 advanced gimble maintains the free moving capabilities of its predecessor but has now been housed in a more secure socket which prevents the risk of the handle becoming loose if misused. The gimble has a highly polished ball enclosed in a nylon socket ensuring super free movement and enhanced security.
The MMC stabilizer now supports cameras from 300g (0.7lbs) – 1kg (2.2lbs) as standard straight out the box and this version is supplied with the SPM Smart Phone Mount which allows phones and iPods to be used on the stabilizer. With these smart phones having such good cameras in them, with the facility of being able to record good quality video, it makes sense to be able to mount them to a tripod or other mount, to hold the phone steady. The mount has two V shaped sections that holds the phone in a horizontal position. The height is adjustable up to 80mm and accepts most modern smart phones that are rounded on their edges. If the phone has square edges, the width must not exceed 12mm. The Universal Phone Mount is not plastic, it's made of machined aluminium with a thumb screw for adjustment.
Cameras below 300g (0.7lbs) or above 1kg (2.2lbs) can also be balanced with the additional accessories offered. The MMC can now support up to a maximum of 1.5kg (3.3lbs) with the MINWK Additional Weight Kit. The Mini Motion Cam is ideal for DSLR cameras, small camcorders, SLR cameras, phones, action cameras and compact cameras.
The stabilizer is a counterbalance system with the camera attached directly to the top by a standard 1/4" camera screw with adjustment for moving the camera forwards and back for balancing. At the bottom of the Mini Motion Cam there is an adjustable counterbalance platform to which the weights are attached. This original Hague design allows you to adjust the positioning of the weights to help counterbalance the camera and helps make setting up the stabilizer a much more simple process than other stabilizing systems. Once balanced it is quick and simple to level off the camera. A selection of weights are supplied for balancing the different weights of camera. Our MMC set-up guide video will quickly take you through the steps required to get you balanced and ready for filming.
The Mini Motion Cam SPM is designed and manufactured in England and utilises the highest quality materials available to ensure it remains the best stabilizer of its type on the market. The reason it has become the most popular stabilizer of its type is quite simply because its performance is second to none and we remain passionate about ensuring this does not change.

Using it with my iPhone 5s and its really good because of the big screen on the back. Also cannot belive what a difference it makes to the footage, so much smoother. It also works with my brother HTC but his camera isnt as good.
