      Appeared great but doesn't function so easily. If camera is more than a few pounds, the soft metal of the chest pad bends and you're soon supporting all the weight of the camera again. Flexible arms never locks just where you'd like it to be... always a click off to one side or the other.

          Comments about Anton Bauer STASIS FLEX Shoulder Mount Camera Stabilizer:

          Unfortunately, this product does not work as well as advertised. It does not hold nearly the weight that it's rated at. And the pad that goes on your chest requires constant adjustment. Basically un-useable as is. BUT, I was able to improve on it. It has a place for a standard mount screw on the panel on the back. I screwed in a strap from a camera case, attached this strap to itself to make a loop, and ran a piece of velcro through my belt and through the loop. Adjusted the strap to hold the strap tight. Now the mount stays right in place without any hands at all!

              This product seemed like a great option for what we wanted to do with it. But it is actually pretty terrible. The battery is supposed to even out the weight on the camera operators shoulder, but it does not do this what so ever. The space between the pad that sits on the chest of the operator and the rear, where the battery sits, is not spaced properly. You can adjust the front pad but this does not help keep the mount steady or sit correctly. Overall this product was a poor choice especially for what it costs. Monopod would have been a far better decision.

                  The Anton Bauer Stasis Flex does not one thing it should. Arm will not lock at chosen position. With the Gold Mount P it is a joke. Neck is way too weak.
                  I cannot say one good thing about this poor design, poor construction and useless application. Not up to Anton Bauer specs. Not worth a red cent!Mine is going back ASAP.

                              Using a Panasonic HVX200, so it's a relatively light mount. It was VERY front heavy and required a lot of arm support. The metal bar in front that connects chest pad bent completely on my first use, so what little shoulder support I had was now completely gone. What is it, aluminum? What I'm talking about here is the bar and pad that rests on your chest. Without that piece, then ALL the weight will be in front on your arms... which defeats the purpose of the device. SO, to tackle the problem, I cut a steel rod and replaced the flimsy front piece. It offered SOME support, but was still quite front heavy. THEN the bar broke through the little half inch piece of plastic that holds the bar to the chest pad. I'm a bit frustrated here. I'll epoxy the little piece of plastic, then add more weight to the back, but I don't think this unit is going to work out.

                                  I tried it out once and returned it. Camera is too top heavy, the shoulder harness just tends to slide forward and you end up holding the camera anyway so it is completely useless.

                                  Purchased for use with a PMW-EX1. The device could not support the camera to any useful degree, the flexible portion attached to the camera does not lock sufficently to keep the camera stable, the shoulder/chest end of the device is so flexible it makes stability impossible. This device is of no real use.
