The lightweight Steadicam Merlin 2 Camera Stabilizing System lets you go where the scene takes you--up or down steps, indoors and out, through crowds--almost without limitation. The Merlin 2 weighs just 1.4 lb and 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.
