Steadicam Pilot-VL Camera Stabilization System
The Steadicam Pilot-VL is a state of the art, lightweight stabilizer system designed especially for the modern breed of lightweight cameras weighing 2 to 10 pounds. It features a standard definition 5.8" monitor, iso-elastic arm, ultra low-profile vest, lightweight sled with CarbonLite expandable post, and a backpack.
The VL option allows the monitor to be powered by V-Lock batteries by including a V-Lock battery mount.
The Iso-Elastic arm is a two-section, articulated, design that can be adjusted while supporting the camera. With this patented, unique design, the Steadicam operator can smoothly and effortlessly raise or lower the arm throughout its 28" boom range.
A low profile vest allows the Iso-Elastic Arm to work in a very smooth fashion.
Low Mass Gimbal
Utilizing a proven Low Mass Gimbal the operator has the ability to capture the fluid movement that only Steadicam can provide.
A 5.8" 16:9 LCD monitor supports standard definition and features an RCA jack for input.
2 x Switronix XP-L90S V-Mount 98Wh 14.8 VDC Li-Ion Battery
The Switronix XP-L90S is a 14.8V lithium-ion V-mount battery with a 98Wh capacity that can be transported carry-on without restrictions under IATA, ICAO, and UN regulations. The XP-L90S features a P-Tap output for powering 12V DC accessories, and a USB port capable of outputting up to 3A at 5V for powering/charging mobile and other devices.
