Mini Hand Held Blue Nano Video Stabilizer
April 3, 2013


Tweet
These little Blue Hand Held Video Stabilizers have been available for quite some time, but tracking down reviews on the item are still scarce. I often get questions about these particular stabilizers, but it’s not something i’ve had the chance to play with in person, so there’s not much information I can offer.

This stabilizer [...]

NEW Dual Arm Stabilizer Vest vs Steadicam Merlin Vest
December 10, 2012


Tweet
I have used and abused my Steadicam Merlin Vest over the years, and although the ISO Arm has lasted me this long, the actual worn vest has slowly been degrading. I love the Steadicam Merlin Vest, and highly recommend the performance it gives, but even at $1500 dollars for the vest only (seen here) this [...]

Cheap Camera Stabilizer Load Vest
October 22, 2012


Tweet
One essential tool for long Flying Video Stabilizer (Steadicam) type shots is a Vest system with an iso-elastic arm. The vest helps to take the weight of the camera off the arms and distributes the load over to the body. The flexible spring loaded iso-elastic arm keeps the camera level as the operator runs, jumps, [...]

Modified Flycam Arm Brace with Skyler MiniCam Stabilizer
August 8, 2012


Tweet
I first purchased a used first gen Skyler Minicam and enjoyed it so much, I went out and purchased the latest model (then sold off the older one). It’s a tiny little stabilizer that packs up small, performs excellently, and has amazing build qualities. Unfortunately it’s a bit expensive compared to other stabilizers, so i’m [...]

Flycam C5 Carbon Fiber Stabilizer
June 26, 2012


Tweet

YouTube member SteveSmithDOP gives us a tour around the new Flycam C5 Carbon Fiber stabilizer [Thanks Steve]. I’ve only seen a handful of videos from this stabilizer, and they’ve really seemed to have stepped up their build quality compared to the original Flycam stuff. They’ve even blacked out all the washers (weights) on the lower [...]

Flycam Armbrace works with Glidecam
April 27, 2012


Tweet

For those who wanted a better look at the Flycam Armbrace, here’s a quick little show and tell. The Flycam Armbrace
is used to help carry some of the weight of a stabilizer off the wrist. Glidecam also sells a Forearm Brace (seen here), but it’s bit more expensive and looks like it will only [...]

Flycam, Glidecam, and Skyler Stabilizer Features
April 23, 2012


Tweet
This video is complete rambling about different feature sets of a few ‘Small Camera stabilizers’ I use. I have quite a few very large ones as well, but for now i’m just touching on these specifically because they are so close in what audience they are intended for. The three small stabilizers i’m showing are [...]

Flycam Carbon Stabilizers CF3 and CF5
April 11, 2012


Tweet

Just a few months ago Flycam introduced a Carbon Fiber stabilizer called the C5. (here). To confuse the market even more, they’ve recently released another set of Flycam Carbon Fiber stabilizers called the CF3 and CF5. Although these look much better than the original C5, I still can’t get over the ugly counterweights and painted [...]

DIY Glidecam / Monopod Modification
February 20, 2012


Tweet

I get it. Sometimes you fly a stabilizer around and need to take a pause for a long static shot. These things can get quite heavy, so being able to stand on it’s own could be beneficial for event shooters. Varizoom offers a Monopod / Stabilizer called the FlowPod (seen here), but when used as [...]

New – Wondlan Mini Camera Stabilizer
February 20, 2012


Tweet

Earlier this year Wondlan released a Carbon Fiber Stabilizer that doubled as a short monopod when you’re not running around. A neat idea, but so far we haven’t seen any real solid tests of perfect flight capabilities. Now Wondlan throws in a much smaller unit made from Aluminum to support cameras in the same range [...]

Flycam New Carbon Fiber C5 Stabilizer
February 9, 2012


Tweet
Not long ago Wondlan released a telescoping Carbon Fiber Video Camera Stabilizer, and now Flycam’s caught on to the design. Although they look similar from afar they are indeed much different, and it appears that Wondlan might be the better build quality. From what I noticed though, the Wondlan has a shorter counterweight sled which [...]

DIY Steadicam Smoothee Mod – Cheesycam Baby Merlin
January 30, 2012


Tweet
Yup, within the first few minutes the Steadicam Smoothee walked through the door it was laying helplessly in pieces on my workbench. As I suspected, it’s quite easy to modify this little stabilizer. With a quick release adapter, a top stage that can be fine tuned Left/Right & Forward/Back for easy balance, and one of [...]

DSLR Flycam Nano Body Vest Stabilizer
December 10, 2011


Tweet

Is it me or is this something new from Flycam? I don’t remember seeing something exactly like this before in their product line. It’s a new body vest support for those Flycam DSLR Stabilizers. It doesn’t look like your typical spring loaded isoelastic stabilizer arm, so it may not be used for walking or running [...]

Uber Low – Tracking with Modified Flycam Nano
October 3, 2011


Tweet

Some BTS of a DIY stabilizer we put together last minute. Working with the GoPro 3D Rig we wanted to get an unusually low tracking shot. A wheeled dolly would have a hard time in the urban streets, so a slightly modified Flycam Nano was the solution. The Flycam Nano received an extension below to [...]
