08Aug Modified Flycam Arm Brace with Skyler MiniCam Stabilizer


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 [...]

27Apr Flycam Armbrace works with Glidecam


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 [...]

23Apr Flycam, Glidecam, and Skyler Stabilizer Features


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 [...]

20Feb DIY Glidecam / Monopod Modification


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 [...]

10Dec DSLR Flycam Nano Body Vest Stabilizer


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 [...]

03Oct Uber Low – Tracking with Modified Flycam Nano


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 [...]

19May Flycam Nano, Flycam Nano DSLR, Flycam 3000


Tweet
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 [...]

14May Flycam Nano Stabilizer Test


Tweet

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 [...]

08May IndieHardware Stabilizer Mod


Tweet

Aaron of Winnipeg shows us how he mods the IndieHardware Video Camera stabilizer. This is one of the cheapest stabilizers I’ve reviewed on this blog that was able to balance a 5D Mark II + Sigma 20mm Lens. That’s about all I was willing to push, but Aaron’s managed to practically double that up while [...]

10Mar DIY SpiderTrax Rotating Dolly


Tweet

Vimeo member Switch Flick uses pieces from a Flycam Nano to make a DIY Spidertrax Rotating Dolly. Axles are a bit long on this first version, but it looks pretty legit with attention to details down to the bolts (much like I used in my setup). Of course, this is all assuming you’ve already dished [...]

03Feb Flycam Nano getting an Upgrade?


Tweet

The Flycam Nano stabilizer has been around for years, but until recently it didn’t get much steam. Now with plenty of fine examples of flying all the new light weight cameras, it’s fast becoming the budget film maker’s choice. Kai over at Poolfilm.com writes in about a problem with the Flycam Nano post. Turns out [...]

06Dec Flycam Nano Stabilizer Abused with 7D + Tokina


Tweet

I know I know. You’re sick of hearing about the Nano and I said I wasn’t going to show any sample footage of this uber cheap video stabilizer with the 7D + Tokina 11-16mm F/2.8. My first video was to show people that it does work with this weight, and I think I did accept [...]

01Dec Flycam Nano DSLR Video Camera Stabilizer


Tweet

I’ve talked about this particular video camera stabilizer before, and have been suggesting it to many people. In my older posts i’ve always shown demo videos of other people using this Flycam Nano stabilizer. This time around, i’m actually doing the demo. It’s an affordable stabilizer with a Gimbal bearing handle that has more range [...]

02Nov Flycam Nano Now available


Tweet

I posted an article about my Steadicam JR auction and there was definitely some interest in that item. I also posted about a single Hollywood VS1 stabilizer that went up for auction, and somebody was lucky to grab it by the next day. Looks like lightweight stabilizers are still in demand. After posting an article [...]

05Sep Flycam Nano Gear Review


Tweet

kaydawgy snatched up a Flycam Nano DSLR stabilizer for approx. $120 dollars and threw up an awesome video demo for us to see the results. Using a Canon 550D / T2i and Tokina 11-16mm lens, the Flycam Nano performed pretty well. Of course, for more people we wanted to see more more more about the [...]
