CAME-TV LBVL4A Overview

Featuring a support vest with a solid design reminiscent of the original motion picture camera stabilizing system, the CAME-TV Pro Camera Vest & Dual-Arm Support System features a heavy-duty, spring-loaded arm that supports camera and gear weighing up to 26.46 pounds. The vest is adjustable to fit a variety of body styles and the arm attachment bracket can be worn on either side of the vest for left- or right-handed operation.

An adjustable metal front plate provides the structure, while a padded fabric rear plate adjusts and conforms to your body. Quick release buckles join the front and rear plates, and hook-and-loop fasteners sewn into the fabric distribute the weight along the entire vest. Disengaging the quick-release brackets allows the operator to escape the vest in an emergency. The arm has a mounting pin that allows you to use select CAME-TV and third-party stabilizer sleds.

Safety Features

The vest features six quick release buckles: two at the shoulder, two at the side, and two at the hips. Disengaging the buckles separates the vest into two separate pieces, allowing the operator to escape the vest in an emergency.

Adjustability

The front plate allows you to adjust the height of the vest to fit your body. It features a main rail with drilled locating holes and a spring-loaded locating pin arrangement. Once you have adjusted the height and the pin engages the locating hole, you tighten the locking knob to secure the vest in place.

The arm support mounting plate adjusts and locks along the same rail that the vest does, using the same locating pin and separate locking knob arrangement. This allows you to adjust the height of the arm for your comfort. You can also mount the arm support for left- or right-arm operation.

CAME-TV LBVL4A Reviews

It can hold a Browning 1919

Bought this rig for a prop recreation project, overall construction is well and it can hold at least 35-40lbs easy. For my application of this rig, the item held well with no failure. I would say if you're using a rig that is exceeding 30 lbs you will feel the weight on your lower back more than if you're using a lighter rig. Overall, I am happy that this rig worked well when I mounted the prop

A Big Problem for Small People

The build of the arm and the metal parts of the vest plate is very excellent and works well with the Glidecam 4000. However, the design of the fabric parts of the vest is bad. The straps are too long and even at its "minimum" adjustment, its still too big and can't be adjusted any further because of the oddly placed velcro. I had to remake the vest by making the back part into a suspender strap and removing a back pad that looks like a fanny sack in order for the vest to fit snuggly and properly. I also took the large padding part that is removable and added some velcro straps to it and wear it backwards to act as a padding for the vest plate instead of the back. With the price tag, I'm dissapointed that I had to remake the vest because of its flawed design If you are a small person wanting to buy this, be prepared to do some redesigning of the fabric parts of the vest.

I love this system

I bought it couple months ago, but I would say since then there is no anytime I would go on a shoot without it, it helps me a lot because I use heavy camera and attach so many stuff on it. it provide great smooth moving camera even when you are extremery running. visit my website and watch video I create with it www.ganzaimage.com

An excellent vest and arm that steadys the weight of my heavy cameras. Such a good purchase. I have been using it for nearly a year and wished I had purchased earlier. For years I have used a glidecam by itself. I get much better results with less fatigue using this setup. Well done CameTV.

Very good for heavy duty cameras ******* 5.5 to 33 lb

I use this stedicam mainly for wedding / Movie shooting . It is very easy to adjust, and has enough padding for comfort. The CAME-TV brand itself is a nice, quality stabilizer system. Very comfortable using this system after one shoot! I would recommend this for both the pro filmmaker. good Professional Qualityi love it for $.

question

Can this vest work with the glidecam hd4000?
Asked by: Isaac
I bought this vest and use it with the Devin Graham Glidecam and a Sony fs7. It works great! The only thing I did was go to home depot to the plumbing section and I found a plastic tube to cover the arm and the Glidecam handle now slides in perfectly. Cost me about $1.50. The vest is built like a tank!

question

Is this vest compatible with the Glidecam HD4000?
Asked by: Anonymous
This Support System is designed for CAME-TV stabilizers. It may work with the Glidecam HD4000 as well, however you may need to modify the connection post for a secure fit. If you search through the other Q&A's you will see that other customers have had success with this, but this is a Do It Yourself project. We do not have a specific product to make the HD4000 work with this unit.

question

Can this be be used with Steadicam Steadimate? Or do I need some sort of adapter?
Asked by: Lars Hauge H.
The pin on the CAME-TV is reported to be 5/8 and the Steadicam Steadimate is 1/2 so it cannot fit directly.

Does anyone know the dimensions of this vest/dual arms? I want to know if this would fit in a pelican 1510 or 1560 case. Came-TV doesn't seem to sell the case separately, and Pelican would be a nice substitute. Thanks.
