The PPS8 Auxiliary Panpilot Camera Stabilizer & Tripod is an intriguing combination of a lightweight camera stabilizer and tripod, thanks to its three adjustable counterweight arms which double as a static support. Unlike conventional gimbaled camera stabilizers, the Panpilot is rigid, allowing a certain amount of gestural expression, while maintaining basic camera stability due to the pendulum effect of the counterweights.
