Help with Stabilizer Choice

Sponsored ads sustain DV Info Net


I am looking into buying a stabilizer for a variety of work situations.

To Start, I will be using a 1/2" chip DV camera (about 12-13 lbs with a tripod plate).

But I am also looking at the XDCAM EX for the future.

I would also like to use the rig for shooting weddings and want its design to be the least obtrusive as it can be.

The Steadicam rigs seem to follow your arm path where others look like the arm juts out.

Also, the rig with the best performance/ease of setup.

Thanks for your suggestions/experiences.
