The ALZO Smoothy Rig is a lightweight handheld, top-gimbaled video stabilizer designed to support a variety of DSLR cameras or small camcorders weighing up to 6 lb. This stabilizer can perform smooth jib moves from ground level to about 8' high. It features two adjustable, textured rubber hand grips that offer comfortable, secure handling and stability.
The top gimbaled stabilizer uses camera weight for low center of gravity stabilization, eliminating the need for heavy counterweights. The camera mount includes 2D camera balance adjustment that allows for controlling any camera angle, including perfect horizon. The rig stabilizer also includes individual gimbal friction drag adjusters to customize stabilization action.
