MultirigPro vs. Frezzi Stable-Cam vs. PAG Orbiter

What are your experiences with these rigs?

I have a brand new Canon A1 with wide angle converter (heavy) and the BP970 baterry (the biggest). The setup wil include a PAG C6 cam light and a Sennheiser ME66/K6 mic. I mostly make run n gun documentaries in difficult environments.

I appreciate your help to decide between this stabilizers. Thanks!

Ah! i forgot to include the Varizoom Media Rig in the list...

MultiRig in a heartbeat.
It's much more configurable and compact.

MultiRig Pro all the way. It worked great with my HD100 before I bought a Brevis, rails, and the whole thing became a monster to work with.

Oh and by the way, for customer service alone, no one can even compete with Danny. He's in a league of his own.

Alan, BTW have you seen the new DVRig Pro HD unit?

It should work very very well with your rail unit.
Great job Danny.
