Revo ST-500A overview

  • 1Description

The black Revo ST-500 Handheld Video Stabilizer, with green accents, is a handheld camera support device designed for shooting smooth, shake-free video. Once mastered, camera operators can use the ST-500 to create fluid, "floating" camera movements, even when walking or running. The ST-500 has a max capacity of approximately 2.2 lbs, which makes it ideal for compact cameras, small camcorders, action cameras, and small DSLRs.

The ST-500 employs a ball joint gimbal, which isolates the camera from incidental twisting and wobbling motions. Proper balance can be adjusted using the 3-piece counterbalance weight set, which attaches via a sliding bracket. In addition, a circular bubble level helps users to fine tune their adjustments. The metal handle supports one-handed operation, although two hands are recommended for optimal control.

  • Suitable for compact cameras and small DSLRs (2.2 lb max capacity)
  • Ball joint gimbal design for free floating camera movements
  • 3-piece counterweight set and bubble level for fine tuning balance

    Revo ST-500A reviews

    ST-500 Handheld Video Stabilizer (Black/Green) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features at a great price Very good feel, and smooth operation. Fits all our cameras. The gimbal moves flawlessly, and the little bubble level thing on the top is very useful. This stabilizer is very compact which makes it easier to use in high-action shoots, but it's also solid enough to do a good job counterbalancing our cameras and attachments. I can't think of anything negative to say about this stabilizer. The cameras we use are Canon T3i and Blackmagic Cinema.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product for small/medium cameras This video stabilizer has worked well for what I have doing with it. The price is definitely right at around sixty dollars. I work in an area where I like to capture short video clips of people, wildlife, and scenery. Thus far, the ST-500 has worked well for taking video using my point & shoot camera, and my small action video camera. When I purchased this product I was planning on using it with my DSLR camera to take video clips during my outdoor adventures. The combination of the weights & the camera make it to heavy to carry easily on long hiking outings. Also, even with all of the weights installed I have had difficulty balancing my approximately 2 lb DLSR camera on the stabilizer. Overall it works very well for stabilizing smaller cameras, but I would recommend something heavier and more substantial for DSLR videography. I have also discovered, the combination of carrying a heavy camera and a heavy stabilizer may not be the best idea for longer hikes & outdoor adventures.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Remember your high school physics! This device is minimalistic, but well made. Some initial frustration with balancing gave way to the realization that the counterweights for my small and light Sony camcorder need to be close to the gimbal, not dangling like a pendulum. With the camcorder fully back in the sliding mount, the stabilizer is pretty well balanced, although I realize my camera may be a bit too light - ideally I would move it back another millimeter or two.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Purchase Ever The product seems easy to use, although extremely difficult to setup weights. I purchased this as it came up as a recommended product for the Sports Cam HD however it is impossible to use. The weight are far too heavy for the Sports Cam HD and the camera itself just isn't heavy enough. I can't use this steady cam for my Sports Cam HD or an iPhone like it was suggested it could be. I tested it on my SLR and it works fine however my SLR doesn't shoot video. I am butterfly disappointed with this purchase.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not All That Thrilled With It Have had a good bit of experience with video cameras. I placed our video camera on the handheld video stabilizer and adjusted the weight(s). In all honesty, I can see very little difference in my hand holding the camera, and the results I get when I put it on the handheld stabilizer. This includes still shots, panning, and moving in or moving out on a subject. As far as I'm concerned, the jury is still out on this device. I may come to like it, but right now cannot say that I do.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality for the price. Great low-price implementation of this concept. The gimble has relatively little range of motion, but it very smooth. It is difficult to replicate the balance position because there is no mark or notch to return the camera placement to when re-mounting the camera to the stabilizer.
    Date published: 2013-06-23
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I had hoped for Although the device was made very well, it did not offer the level of control I was hoping for. As you walk around, the weights at the bottom swing around a little. Sometimes more than a little. The result is video that looks like you were on a boat. Also when you rotate your body position, the camera remains oriented in the direction it was making it hard to move about much at all. Maybe my expectations were a bit lofty and some people can make use of such a design. For my needs it did not suit. Thanks to B&H for providing a simple return policy.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay for the low price... I purchased this to have a more stabilized video when using my Panasonic GX1 (with the 14-42mm lens attached) for videos @ 14mm. Quite honestly the thing is impossible to balance, I came close, but nevertheless it WILL wobble. But hey, for the money I wasn't expecting super smooth gliding. You get what you pay for...
