    Pro Camera Carbon Stabilizer with Support Vest & Support Arm is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product for the price point The entire system is very well made. I did have to order the quick release camera plate, monitor, battery and battery v-mount plate separately. I found one that offered 7.2v so that I can run my XA25 directly from the large battery. It was not difficult to balance but that process is much easier if you have a sturdy stand. It is not too unwieldy even for a smaller operator. cons: No instructions and a video disc in Chinese. BandH did not offer the option for the lighter tension arm which the vendor offers if purchased directly. Overall a great product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best value The build quality is great, not noisy at all as some youtube reviews claim, definitely the best option for those trying to build a steadicam-like rig for heavier cameras without paying insane 5k+. My only concerns are the vest clips (They are plastic and I feel they can break in more stressful situations) and the fact that if you want to put the v-mount/gold batteries on the base, you have to adapt a plate yourself. the cables are there, but there is no plate, so you have to improvise. Except for that, it's a great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solidly built quality product I was on the edge between 4 and 5 stars but decided to go with 5. It arrived in great condition and is working exceptionally well for the price. It takes a little getting used to and getting the vest properly adjusted takes a slight learning curve, but once properly adjusted, it works very well. The sled balanced extremely easily using just a light stand, though I have a docking plate coming from Came-TV directly to make the process even easier. I was able to balance my Ursa Mini 4k on it with a 24-70 f/2.8L and a 150wh battery with only two weights on the bottom thanks to the telescoping shaft for the sled. (Note that it isn't immediately obvious that it telescopes, so be careful to find all the adjustments.) The arm itself is solidly built and well adjustable, however it did seem to have somewhat of a mind of it's own if my torso shifts. I get the feeling this is just a general use thing as I don't see how a higher end unit would counteract this and it isn't hard to work with as a result, but it does take a little more getting used to. As mentioned, the vest takes some careful adjustment to get even weight distribution and it's still pretty strenuous, especially when the arm is extended, but overall far better than hand carrying a sled. Overall I did not find it difficult to control and was able to get used to handling it pretty quickly (about an hour or so of messing around with some previous experience with hand held sleds). It is worth noting that it does come with a power adapter for XLR power connections, so you don't need to buy one yourself. I didn't realized this and bought my own DC to XLR adapter before it arrived. A QR plate is also recommended to simplify mounting and dismounting the camera rig. It isn't 100% perfect, but for the price it is an extremely solid value which just edges it in to 5 stars for me. It effectively stabilizes shots once you get used to it and only has a few small quirks that make it less intuitive to work with. I wouldn't recommend it for daily usage, but if you only occasionally need to use steadicam stabilization, this is a great solution for an exceptional price.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from arrived with Damaged level indicator uh oh !! is it my bad luck or BHPhoto always sends bad units to international customers? my first bad experience with bhphoto was a defective printer worth more than $ 1,800 dollars.. and now this? i got my came tv pro today, after reviewing many cheaper units on other websiets i decided to take the plunge on this $888 dollars stabilizer with vest, my disappointment, my big disappointment is to receive a broken bubble indicator on the steadycam,, i mean these features and the adjustable plate to left and right forward and backwards is what makes you go for this,, imagine receiving one piece where you cannot make good use of those features because the bubble level indicator is broken!!!! c'mon... this just ruined my whole week, month, ! do i have s=to send it back? pay shipping from honduras which i already paid 50, will i spend another 100 dollars to send it back and receive it again?
