Steadicam Steadimate 30 Support System for Motorized Gimbals
Key Features
  • Supports Loads up to 30lb
  • Vest and Arm Kit
  • Linear Axis Stabilization
  • Distributes Payload Weight
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.

Steadicam Steadimate 30 Overview

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.

Linear Axis Stabilization

By themselves, 3-axis motorized gimbals can compensate for movement in the pan, tilt, and horizon axes. However, linear movement, especially vertical movement, remains unchecked. Implementing the spring-loaded isolation arm and vest from traditional Steadicam stabilizers absorbs any unwanted vertical motion brought about by walking/running or arm fatigue.

Weight Distribution

While the spring-loaded arm provides additional movement isolation, the vest reduces arm fatigue by distributing the weight of the gimbal setup over the operator's torso. Having the weight more evenly distributed allows for the operator to more easily accomplish long takes and complex maneuvers with fewer breaks before or after shots.

This is not compatible with Glidecam Devin Graham stabilizer. You would need to use a product like the Glidecam X-10 Dual Support Arm Stabilizer Vest System instead, BH #GLX10. https://bhpho.to/36TKkHO

Asked by: Anonymous
Joanne, there are many differences between traditional Steadicam devices and electronic mechanical gimbals such as the Movie or Ronin. We suggest that you contact us directly to discuss these as it is too much to address in this format. You can contact us at [email protected] or 1 800 593-3331.

question

is this compatible with the Ronin 2 Gimbal?
Asked by: Rafael
We purchased this, a Ronin 2 and the Ronin 2 Classic Handlebars. Despite the answers here, the Steadimate is NOT compatible. The Ronin 2 Handlebars now now have octagonal shaped ends. They are not round. The original round bar is discontinued. The Steadimate requires a round bar to attach to. I've called twice to Tiffen and sent an email directly to several people at the company with no response. We will be calling B&H shortly to see if there is some way to attach these 2 (expensive) products. If not, at least one of them will get returned.
