the new price on ebay is $18++ without the hard case if i'm not mistaken. it was selling for $15++ before with hard case.

one question - after balancing with the new gimbal and have it mounted on the arm, the sled tend to tilt to the right. what could be causing this? appreciate all the help.

Again, this sounds like what Ed was experiencing with is new gimbal - Mis-alignment of the tilt bearing axis. I could be wrong. Rebalance and test the rig again.

I know that John has a much more expensive gimbal assembly as well as some other improvements. $18++ is cheap for a good stabilizer system even though it's not cheap.

Regarding the tilt, does it balance correctly on the balancing stand and then change when put on the arm? Is the angle from arm to sled the same as when balanced on the stand. I know it's not supposed to make any difference however it would help in figuring out the problem.

Hello Sarah,

I don't own a magiqcam, I just want the gimbal.

I don't know John, but I am going to Google "magiqcam" right now.

Do you know if one could purchase that gimbal separately?

Thanks !!
