Looking for a good stabilizer

Recommended Posts

Im in need of some advice. I have a full Redrock UltraCage setup. Backplate everything and power distribution system connected to a V-Mount battery. Its heavy to say the least. I bought the Steadicam Merlin and body brace. Which worked with just the dslr, well even with the beginning parts of the ultracage. However with the full ultracage and battery it is far too heavy.

 

Im in need of a scale for sure, however does anyone have any suggestions for good heavy duty heavy camera stabilizers? Im concerned the Glidecam 4000 doesn't support the weight I need it to support.

 

Additional accessories on the camera

Marshall LCD

H4N Zoom

Sennheiser boom mic with blimp windscreen

 

Its all very heavy and most I can find only support 4-10 lbs

 

Ultracage setup

 

Ultracage

Ultracage backpack and v-mount battery attachment

Shoulder support (which I could very well remove without much effort that in itself is heavy)

MatteBox (id like to use this however i can remove it)

 

Id like one that i can just lock onto with a Manfrotto quick release plate whenever I need a steadicam shot and not have to take the whole ultracage apart just to do it.

 

Thanks in advance.

I have not and that's the issue. Don't have a scale anywhere. Gotta find one first and go from there. It looks like stabilizer sleds are the only option. However most for the weights I'm guessing at I.e over 10 lbs come with the vest and arm as well. Nothing separate.

Another option may be the Varizoom

By my estimate my camera weight is right within 10-20 so around 15 or so i'd think.

 

Just dont need the arm :\ I contacted Glidecam to see if they have an option however it looks like ill just have to waste money buying another vest and arm.

      Amazing cage with built-in follow focus wheel perfect for the a7s, Canon and Nikon cameras. It's in used condition but works great. Redrock are a quality company with excellent customer service. I've found this cage to be exceptional as a one-man-band.

      Selling a excellent condition 5D Mark III with Canon 50mm f1.8, battery grip with hand strap, 5 batteries, AC wall adapter, 3 CF cards, and 2 chargers. The 5D has Magic Lantern preinstalled for RAW shooting and upgraded operating system. I can also remove the Magic Lantern if need be. The camera is only 2 years old, has been mainly used in a studio setting shooting only video, and taken extremely great care of. It has less than 6,000 shutter count and is in like new condition. The Canon 50mm 1.8 is the hard to find older model with the better focus ring. The lens is in excellent condition, with no scratches, fungus, or oil on aperture blades. Set comes with 3 CF cards, a 64gig, and two 32gig cards.  $2000 OBO

      Selling this shoulder rig and follow focus. The model is Lanparte DSLR. For DSLR, mirrorless and can be adapted to other cameras, it's quite versatile with a lot of configurations. Metal components, solid and bomb proof. Great condition and everything working. I sell it with the focus whip and an offset clamp that are not in the photos.
      €600 + shipping
