Applying Steadicam's camera stabilizer experience to motorized gimbal stabilizers yields the Steadimate 30 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 30 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.
- Supports Loads up to 30lb
- Vest and Arm Kit
- Linear Axis Stabilization
- Distributes Payload Weight

Takes Some Practice
If you are coming from the Steadicam world, you will be able to get up and running much quicker than if you have never used a Steadicam with vest before. If you are coming from the gimbal world, there is a learning curve. But it's well worth the practice. Once you get the COG on the Steadimate balanced correctly, you'll feel a major difference in the way it behaves. It's only clunky if you don't know what you're doing. If you invest the time and practice, it will pay off.
It's heavy and clunky. The manual is a nightmare.
Works as advertised with a bit of practice. As a long time Steadicam Operator and gamble user, it took a bit of practice to use both, but works well.. The A-30 has a great weight range.
Steadicam steadimate 30
Just received mine yesterday and the product is definitely excellent steadicam quality. I got the A-30 arm and I'm very happy with the purchase. The steadimate comes very nicely packed with an Allen key needed for adjustments. I do not recommend if you are a gimbal operator with no real prior knowledge of steadicam getting this product and heading directly to set with it there definitely will be a learning curve for you. Also it does seem that the directions are a little vague in some areas. If you are a steadicam operator looking to add this to your arsenal I think you will grasp it much faster. Overall though the quality is exceptional and for someone willing to take the time and practice I highly recommend the product. 4/5 stars just cause I think the directions could be a little clearer.
