Steadicam Steadimate 15 Support System for Motorized Gimbals

BH #STSDM15 • MFR #SDM-15
Steadicam Steadimate 15 Support System for Motorized Gimbals
Key Features
  • Supports Loads up to 15lb
  • Vest and Arm Kit
  • Linear Axis Stabilization
  • Distributes Payload Weight
Applying Steadicam's camera stabilizer experience to motorized gimbal stabilizers yields the Steadimate 15 Support System. Combining a classic arm and vest kit with the Steadimate gimbal mount allows you to mount a motorized gimbal, such as a Freefly MoVI or DJI Ronin, set up with a camera and ancillary gear weighing up to 15 pounds, and reap the benefits of linear-axis stabilization and better weight distribution. During setup, just remove one of your gimbal stabilizer's handles and replace it with the Steadimate gimbal mount, which in turn, secures to the Steadicam arm. The Steadimate incorporates a rotating joint which allows for tilt-axis manipulation while mounted. Balancing weights for fine-tuning and all necessary mounting hardware are included.

Will this work with the Ronin-SC ?

Will this work with the Ronin-SC ?
Asked by: Bernard
It will not. This system is designed to work with larger dual handled systems. For the Ronin-SC the Glide Gear DNA 6000 Stabilization System with Vest, Arm & Gimbal Adapter would be a great choice, BH #GLDNA6000VAO. https://bhpho.to/2vp1a1l

Can this also work with non motorized gimbals? I'm buying this for my DJI Ronin MX but I am curious if I can also get it to work with a glidecam 2000 I have?
Asked by: Michael
The Steadimate Systems are designed to work with gimbals like the Ronin-MX. It is not compatible with the Glidecam HD 2000.

Does this support the Zhiyun crane handlebar?

Does this support the Zhiyun crane handlebar?
Asked by: Alan
If you are using a Crane Gimbal with the additional Dual Handle, such as B&H # ZHCRANE2DH, we believe it should work with the Steadimate 15. https://bhpho.to/2vP4Qt9

question

Do you need two people to put on the Steadicam Steadimate 15 Support System for Motorized Gimbals?
Asked by: Anonymous
No... you fit the vest to yourself, making sure that it is centered on your body. Then you attach the arm. Once the motorized gimbal with the Steadimate is balanced, you then attach the Steadicam arm to the Steadimate. At that point you adjust the arm springs so it does not rise or dip, or go away from you or towards you. This can all be accomplished by one person.

question

Will this work with the Ronin 2 ? If not, which arm+vest or steadimate version will ?
Asked by: Luciano G.
You cannot use the Steadimate with the 360 degree handle on the Ronin 2, you must switch it for the traditional handlebar type handle to dock with the Steadimate. Two Steadimate systems are aavaialble... A-15 and A-30. Depending upon the weight being supported (Ronin, Camera, Accessories), you would choose the appropriate Steadimate rig.
