Steadicam - Merlin

The Steadicam Merlin camera stabilizing system is a lightweight handheld gimbal stabilizer that allows you to capture smooth, professional-looking footage whether you go up or down steps, indoors and out, through crowds, or wherever else the shot may take you. It weighs just 1.4 lbs and its counterbalancing weight supports cameras up to 5 lbs. The system utilizes a dual extended weight system that increases inertial stability and features a precise folding-caliper hinge that lets you fold and unfold the unit without any balance readjustment. A universal mounting plate with quick-release clamp lets you easily attach and re-attach your camera while keeping your balancing settings intact.
