The SYL-1000 Small Camera, Go Pro, and Phone Stabilizer from Glide Gear is a bow-shaped handheld stabilizer designed for shooting smooth, shake-free videos. It can hold cameras up to 1.5 lb and can be individually balanced for each camera with the included counterweights. You can also adjust the camera screw 2" fore and aft to help with camera balance. It includes adapters for mounting small cameras, Go Pro cameras, and phones to the stabilizer.

The stabilizer is made from non-rust stainless steel and aluminum and features a foam grip on the handle for added comfort, especially if filming in cold weather. For easy transport, a carrying case is included.

A gimbal joint prevents angular disturbance and hand shake from passing to the camera
A tracking knob above the gimbal joint allows you to control and aim the camera with your thumb while holding the grip
By loosening the 360 nut you can change the angle of the handle, giving you a wider range of motion
Camera cushion strips reduce vibration and help keep your camera in place when mounted on the bow arm

      Comments about Glide Gear SYL-1000 Small Camera, Go Pro, and Phone Stabilizer:

      I didn't practice much before using it on vacation but the concept is pretty simple. But I have to agree with some other reviewers that I think I can be just as smooth with my GoPro without the stabilizer. Also, because the GoPro has such a wide angle lens it picks up the top of the stabilizer in the video. It is also kind of bulky to travel with while doing day trips on vacation. I left it in the room after my first day because it was a pain to carry and since I was filming and interacting with animals I wasn't allowed to use it anyway.

      I don't think it that's great or needed for a GoPro. It would be much better suited for doing videos on a camera or regular video recorder at home or somewhere where traveling light is not a factor.

      Comments about Glide Gear SYL-1000 Small Camera, Go Pro, and Phone Stabilizer:

      This product helped my son stabilize his GoPro Video footage by so much! No more shakey video or choppy, nausea inducing head bobbing but smooth passes and nice camera angles for his parkour videos. It is easy to handle for him and easy to maintain. It is sturdy as well and has shown no sign of breaking down anytime soon. He even has the ability to use his phone should he want to work on filming with his phone. The things that he has mentioned aren't so great about it are that it has a learning curve and you need some skill to make the shots look good. Other than that, this was a perfect gift for my son! This is a must have for any GoPro user on a budget!

        Comments about Glide Gear SYL-1000 Small Camera, Go Pro, and Phone Stabilizer:

        I teach a high school film and video class with, essentially, no money to buy equipment. When I surveyed my students to find that almost all of them use an iPhone, I almost bought a steadicam smoothee but I also wanted to use whatever I bought for the Canon HDV cameras we use. Even though the Smoothee looked easy to use I couldn't see spending more for fewer options. Since I was spending my money I was looking for the best value. Found this, watched some youtube videos and ordered this one. As others have said, this takes some time to set up but I showed some boys in class how it worked and told them to learn how to use it. They came back a little while later while I helped others and had acquired some decent shots during their first hour with it.I'm sure that I could get better performance for more money butI think this is a good buy for my needs.

              Great product for the price! Takes a few hours to get used to using the unit, but once you get the hang of it it's a really enjoyable product!

              I use mine for a GoProHero 3+... I used all the "large" weights but 1 and then used only two more "small" weights.. This seemed to balance the unit very well.
