How does it work?
The design and weight of the stand provides a counter balance to the camera, which provides a smooth, ergonomically correct method of shooting complimenting the way you work. Remember that a body in motion tends to stay in motion? Well think of your camera as you are holding it up eye level to monitor it, and your walking forward, every step you take, your arm wants to continue to move forward.
When you stop, your arm goes forward and your camera tilts down. When you have a counter balance on the bottom of a post, balanced to the weight of the camera, this counterbalance also tends to want to keep in motion, thus countering the inertial effect on the camera. In the end the camera shakes and rolls and yaws a whole lot less. Bottom line: Your footage is better. Your videos look better. Your get more recognition, more gratitude from your customer, more respect from your colleagues, more interest from prospects and more jobs.
Is it heavy?
Its not heavy. By itself, definitely not heavy. Our heaviest unit weighs 1.3 kilograms (3 pounds). Every stabilizer has some weight. The SteadyTracker camera stabilizer is just lighter than others because of its all aluminum construction. The SteadyTracker camera stabilizer will stand on its own, you can simply put it down if you need to rest between shots. Since you never have to add any weight to balance it, the SteadyTracker never gets heavier. Whether your camera is a small single chip camcorder, heavier DSLR or any of the wonderful handheld pro cameras you simply never have to add any more weight.
Is it easy and quick to setup?
Having your tools readily available is important and the SteadyTracker is ready, willing and able when you are. The most popular complaints to all the gimbal mount competitors is that it takes more time to setup and balance a gimbal mounted stabilizer. Many camera operators are truly frustrated with the amount of time it takes to balance. The SteadyTracker was designed with the Professional in mind, so it can be setup and balanced within 1 minute, getting you in and out of the job quicker than any other stabilizer. Change cameras, batteries, or lenses and the SteadyTracker can be rebalanced in under a minute. No other professional stabilizer can even come close.
