Typically the Skyler MiniCam stabilizers can be found for approximately $520-$540 shipped (as found here). There’s one seller posting a unit that is a copy of the Skyler product and lists as an XMiniCam for just [...]

Skyler MiniCam DSLR Video Camera Stabilizer
The Skyler MiniCam (seen above) is one of the smallest Video Camera Stabilizers around, and can still fly a fairly weighted DSLR Camera. It’s an expensive piece of kit, but my favorite stabilizer to travel with. To make the Skyler even smaller and faster to setup, there’s a new [...]

04Oct Sony RX100 Wide Angle Lens MagFilter Adapter Skyler MiniCam


Tweet

The Sony RX100 produces great video quality, and performs well in low lit situations, so I was recommending this camera to a Real Estate agent looking to perform low budget YouTube Virtual Tours. Unfortunately, it’s widest focal length is approximately 28mm (not the greatest). I got to thinking, and decided to test out the new [...]

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 [...]

02Jul Skyler MiniCam with SoloWheel Flying T4i 650D


Tweet

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).
  
Just in case something disastrous were to happen, I felt comfortable trying this test out with Canon’s latest EOS T4i [...]

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 [...]

09Apr Canon 5D Mark III + Sigma 20mm on Skyler MiniCam


Tweet

Today I decided to try and balance the Canon 5D Mark III with a Sigma 20mm F/1.8 lens on the Skyler MiniCam. Sorry I don’t have any interesting test footage right now, but i’ll be shooting something later on today (which is why i’m balancing it). Still very happy I was able to find one [...]

08Apr Skyler MiniTrack Video Slider


Tweet

Not sure how I didn’t see this, but the same Skyler company that makes the MiniCam Stabilizer also offers a video slider. The Skyler MiniTrack slider comes in 60cm or 90cm length. Interestingly though it also comes with two axles to be used as a very long rolling dolly. I see the portionable axles more [...]
