15May XCAM Mini vs Skyler MiniCam Handheld Stabilizers


Tweet
I purchased a Skyler MiniCam about a year ago. At the time I was looking for a very small stabilizer that was easy to travel with, offered a quick release system, fine tuning knobs, and can fly at least the Canon 5D Mark III camera. I personally felt the price was very good for [...]

13Mar Single Arm Video Stabilizer Balance Video


Tweet

Here’s a recent video showing how to set up and balance the budget Single Arm Vest system with Carbon Stabilizer. I actually have this vest (not the stabilizer) and I feel it’s pretty good quality, but I had trouble getting a lightweight setup on the single arm vest to work smoothly and get rid of [...]

10Dec NEW Dual Arm Stabilizer Vest vs Steadicam Merlin Vest


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 [...]

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, [...]

08Oct Wondlan Carbon Video Camera Stabilizer


Tweet

Less than a year ago, Wondlan introduced a few hand held carbon fiber stabilizers. Since the release, it was short of showcasing excellent examples of the stabilizers in use, so it was hard to tell if it was the actual unit or operator experience. Here’s one video that shows some pretty fluid movements and also [...]

08Aug Modified Flycam Arm Brace with Skyler MiniCam Stabilizer

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 [...]

Home for the day, so I decided to see if I had the skills to fly the Skyler MiniCam Video Camera Stabilizer while riding a Gyro-Stabilized Motorized UniCycle called the SoloWheel (found here on eBay).

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 [...]

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.
