The Steadicam Merlin is a camcorder stabilizing system for small camcorders. This system utilizes a metal gimbal for smooth camera movement. Designed by Garrett Brown, this model outperforms its predecessor, the Steadicam Jr.
- The Merlin system is four times as smooth as the Steadicam Jr., but weighs much less. This gives the Merlin a look as smooth as Hollywood Steadicams.
- Folding Caliper
- With a click, the Merlin folds up into a small, compact size--easy to transport.
- A three-axis control gimbal is utilized for smooth camera movement.
