The Merlin 2 Camera Stabilizing System with Arm and Vest Upgrade Kit from B&H is a camera stabilizer solution for cameras weighing up to 5 pounds. The kit includes a Steadicam Merlin 2 Camera Stabilizer, a swing arm, and a vest. Use the Merlin 2 on its own for handheld use, or attach it to the swing arm and vest for longer shot capability.

The Steadicam Merlin 2 utilizes a metal gimbal to create smooth, professional-quality camera movements for your footage. It features a rigid camera plate, multi-angle viewable level, and large knobs for easy adjustments and use. When longer shots are required, attach the Merlin 2 to the included arm and vest using the secure metal interconnect. When placed on the swing arm, the weight of the camera is taken off your wrist and transferred to your torso, letting you shoot longer with less strain.

The Merlin Vest is one-size-fits-all and lightweight at only 2.6 pounds. The Arm is built to a 7/8 scale of the Steadicam Flyer, G-50, and G-70 arms, providing the same professional feel and performance but in a smaller package. The arm itself weighs 5.1 pounds, and it can support a camera payload between 2.5 and 7 pounds.
