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






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 Armbrace works with Glidecam
April 27, 2012






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






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 […]

DIY Glidecam / Monopod Modification
February 20, 2012






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 […]

DSLR Flycam Nano Body Vest Stabilizer
December 10, 2011






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






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 […]

Flycam Nano, Flycam Nano DSLR, Flycam 3000
May 19, 2011






I think i’ve received at least 2 questions/day since this new ‘Flycam Nano DSLR’ had been advertised online. It’s quite confusing since there already is a Flycam Nano that supports DSLRs. This one claims to be better and can handle more weight. Of course it does! It’s bigger and looks almost exactly like the Flycam […]

Flycam Nano Stabilizer Test
May 14, 2011






Vimeo member Satva Leung shares a Flycam Nano stabilizer test with me. It’s pretty nice to see someone fairly new to stabilizers get great results, especially from such a cheap piece of equipment. Flying a Canon T2i + Tokina 11-16mm (same lens I used on a few tests), check out the results. I haven’t flown […]
