Wondlan's new Leopard Stabilizer system comes in along with some of the cheapest Dual Arm Vest + Stabilizer kits. How well does it work? Hmm..There's a few videos that are showing up over at Vimeo for you to take a look at. One demo above, and an instructional type video showing how to assemble the entire kit and balance (below). So far, nothing else online from an actual 'owner' especially here in the US. I'm more interested in how comfortable the vest is and if it might be available seperately. The spring design and dual arm looks to be of very high quality and much better than the Flycam junk vest stuff.
I'm thinking this would be a great addition to my new Canon Coffee mugs. LOL. Vests are geeky, but if you're hired to work on a gig, they are actually very functional. It's like wearing a backpack, but instead of all the pouches on your back, you got gear all over your body. From the post, they say it's a legit Canon trademark and licensed apparel. Looks pretty cool, just thought some of you might be a Canon-holic like myself. Click on the image above to get to the product page, or click here.
