OK, it's not a Steadicam but it does save energy, especially in your arms. Well made with excellent adjustability it really helps take the load off. I'm using with a Panasonic DVX-200 which becomes heavy to handhold for extended shooting, this fixes that problem. And though a bit complicated it folds up well for transport in the included bag.
Well made,light weight,easy to use quick release.Been looking for a rig like this.Thanks Alzo Digital..!
Overall good but the ball joint is not as smooth as a fluid type joint.
Found this product online while looking for something I could use after a stroke limited my use of one hand. I have a Nikon Coolpix P900 which is much too heavy to use one handed for long distance zooms. It does require some assistance for initial setup and to buckle the belt (difficult onehanded) but the stability for shooting is fine. It is even better as a base for use with my binoculars using a tripod adapter from the Outdoorsman for my Leica Ultravids. You should definitely think of the hemiplegic stroke population as a potential market. A lilttle work with the belt buckle and monopod pivot would make it even more convenient for one handed use in the next model, but the current version is the best I could find for this purpose. Thanks.
