The Opteka SteadyVid SV-HD Camera Stabilizer with quick release plate is designed for DSLR and video cameras weighing up to 6 lb. This compact handheld system gives videographers the ability to create smooth videos while the camera is in motion. It features a camera platform with both x and y adjustments and multiple mounting holes for various camera positions. The weight plate contains six counterweight discs to balance your camera on the stabilizer. These can be added or removed based on your need. The weights are fastened on the weight plate via a 1/4"-20 screw.
The back-and-forth, side-to-side moving SV-HD platform allows for a quick adjustment of horizontal balance, while the disks on the base platform adjust the camera's vertical balance. When properly balanced, the camera floats and the stabilizer is ready to use. It can be extended from 14.6 to 23.6” to adapt to the weight of the camera.
