Steadydrive Double Action - Opinions

Hello,

I've been looking for a cheaper steadycam system for a while now and I stumbled on this one: STEADYDRIVE - Makers of fine stabilization instruments

It's 200eur on eBay and it seems to be quite interesting.

I'd like to know if anyone tried it and if it would be suitable for my camera (I currently have a Canon Hv30 with a wide angle lens on it) or if I'd be better off with a smaller system?

Thanks for your help.

Cheers,
Luka

I would say stick with one of the main players. Steadicam and Glidecam.

Ive seen some vids of the Steadydrive stuff and when you need somone to help you get into the rig and has to screw you into it, then I think your in trouble.

Agree with Danny on this one. There is no discussion.
