Camera Sled

At the heart of the stabilizer system is a true 3-axis gimbal for smooth movement up/down, panning and rotation. The 7" monitor is adjustable for viewing and balance. The camera stage features a micro adjustable X-Y stage for fine tuning your balance, while the included counterweights help the Steadicam operator balance the weight of the camera on the rig.

Carbon Fiber Post
