Chinese Stabiliser Design

Hmm i spotted this in China. Take a look. I would consider this an original design at least! They have jibs and dollies as well. Will be checking them out in Beijing this weekend. Hopefully I get to see more video stuff there. Pricewise I think they are close EZ Jib for the jib.. not sure about the stabiliser.

And that websites is... huh... the same as the Varizoom website?

Is this an official "Chinese" Varizoom site or did they borrow the design?

Does it look like a varizoom?? it does resemble a glidecam but I guess the concept is more or less the same somehow.. at least they didnt have a complete rip off like the one on ebay ;p

Erwin was referring to the website ... which does in deed very much resemble Varizoom's website.
