The Scout Camera Stabilizer Kit with Standard Vest and Anton Bauer Mount from Steadicam is a camera stabilizer package which allows you get smooth, stabilized shots with cameras weighing between 5 to 18 pounds. The kit includes a Steadicam Scout Camera Stabilizer with a 7" LCD monitor, two Anton Bauer Mount batteries to power the monitor, a dual battery charger, a standard vest, and a support arm.
The support vest, Iso-Elastic arm, and Scout camera sled work together to support and isolate the camera from vibration, allowing it to float and travel almost anywhere a person can go. With practice, operators can float cameras up and down steps, across streets, and in and out of elevators, and make on the fly adjustments, while keeping the shot smooth and fluid.
- Standard Scout Vest
- Provides support for the camera system, helping to prevent fatigue by transferring the weight of the camera to the operator's hips. The vest is padded to provide comfort and adjustments can be made without tools and on the fly.
- Iso-Elastic Stabilizer Arm
- The Iso-Elastic arm attaches the sled to the vest and can be adjusted without any tools, allowing for quick adjustments and customization to different operators. It supports weights up to 18 pounds. Weight adjustment can also be made on the fly, so that the operator does not have to dismount the system to make changes. The 2-section arm can be separated for storage and transport.
- Scout Camera Stabilizer Sled
At the heart of the system is the Scout camera stabilizing sled. It provides smooth movement up/down, panning and rotation. The 7" LCD monitor is adjustable for viewing and balance, and features an Anton Bauer battery mount. The camera stage features a micro adjustable X-Y stage for fine tuning your balance, while the included Steadicam Merlin-type counterweights help the Steadicam operator balance the weight of the camera on the rig.
