The lightweight Steadicam Merlin 2 Camera Stabilizing System With Arm and Vest lets you go where the scene takes you--up or down steps, indoors and out, through crowds--almost without limitation. A swing arm and a vest are included, which allows the Merlin to operate with a vest and arm for a more professional feel and longer shot capability. The Merlin 2 can handle cameras up to 5 lb in weight. It gives you precise, elegant control for dramatic, professional you-are-there footage. The quick-release mount lets you instantly switch between your stabilizer and any tripod. This system utilizes a metal gimbal for smooth camera movement. Designed by Garrett Brown, this model outperforms the original Merlin.
