Swivl Personal Cameraman Makes Shooting Videos of Yourself Easier

September 19, 2012

A few years ago I took a photography class where our final project was to shoot a self-portrait. While it seems easier enough to set the timer and jump in position, it is tricky to get everything just right.

Nowadays there are a bunch of people who not only need to take self-portraits, they are trying to shoot video of themselves. It is doable if you are in a stationary position, but gets more difficult if you are moving around. That’s where the Swivl Personal Cameraman comes in handy.

It can work with all tripod-enabled pocket cameras (and phones) up to six ounces to follow you as you move. The Swivl base follows a marker by rotating and moving up and down. For those using an iPhone or iPod, the market also functions as a wireless microphone. While not yet supported on Android, I’m guessing support will be added at some point in the future.

Having the Swivl Personal Cameraman isn’t as good as having a person working the camera, but it can be really handy for those occasions when you have to film yourself.
