Alternative to glidecam or merlin

I think I came across a post in this forum but can't seem to find it. It was a system for doing glides or cam movement but was resonably priced. there were several versions one had 2 handles on each side of where the camera is mounted. Also had the option of a stick that connects to the bottom of the cam and you have a little pouch that's attached to a support belt. Their web site had a video showing it being assembled then some action shots. If anyone feels like they know what I'm talking about please post a link. Thank you.

That looks alot like it but it's not the same one I was looking for. That's not a bad deal for that rig either.

Get the flycam from ebay, it's half the price of glidecam, but it's just the same

multirig

Your talking about the DvMultiRig http://www.dvmultirig.com/, made by DV tech. I actually just ordered one after hearing some good things on here, and comparing the price to other units. The Dv multi rig is awesome cause its converts into 4 or 5 differnt configurations. I have only tried it once so far with my cam, but i really like it so far. I will be shooting a wedding with it next weekend, should be good.

That's it Travis. I was really impressesed with the video on the web site. I will also look into the fly cam. Do they have a web site or is it just one for ebay?
