New Stablizer

Freefly Systems: Movi M10 3 Axis Handheld Stabilizer: Professional Video Equipment

Seems interesting, it's like a cross between a steadicam and Figrig. Which both I have.

At $15K it's a little more than I want to invest.

Re: New Stablizer

Most of these are controlled by Chinese electronics and servos, as the tech and parts comes from multirotor camera gimbals, which are primarily made in China anyway.

These complete camera handheld gimbals can be had for $1500-$3000 complete less RC transmitter. The problem with them is you need a separate operator to control panning, and these are usually only 2 axis gimbals, they do not remove vertical movement. I've only see one that does.

Because of all that, I think I would opt for a Steadycam setup.
