DSLR Stabilizer Antique?
March 17, 2010
Don’t count out the Steadicam Jr.! This design might be old, but it’s the same basic principle as the latest Merlin going for $800 dollars. I picked up the Steadicam JR as my first Stabilizer for around $118 dollars for my Canon 5D Mark II. Remember these things were designed to fly VHS Cameras (heavy). In fact, the Gimbal that is used on the Steadicam Merlin IS THE EXACT same Gimbal design on the old Steadicam Jr. You can find Steadicam Jr’s at auction for dirt cheap if you look hard enough. Check out these Steadicam Jr’s on eBay. Click Here.
