FLYCAM Flowline Overview

The Flowline Starter Support Vest and Spring Arm for Camera and Gimbals from FLYCAM work together to ensure your handheld shots are secure and steady. A padded vest with a rotating top bar and a two-axis spring arm with adjustable tension keep your handheld videography smooth with vibration isolation and load distribution.

FLYCAM Basic Flowline Stabilizing Support Vest with 180° Rotation

Take the strain of your camera's weight off your shoulders and arms and transfer it to your back with the Basic Flowline Stabilizing Support Vest with 180° Rotation from FLYCAM. Ideal for any handheld camerawork, this support vest is compatible with gimbals and camera rigs from 6.6 to 16.5 lb. A suspension line with a maximum length of 60" threads through a top bar measuring 22" and is capable of rotating 180° to execute pivoting and tracking shots with ease.

The suspension line's additional point of contact reduces vibrations to keep your handheld shots steady and smooth. Its tension can be adjusted with the knob positioned on the back of the vest, and the camera's position along the top bar can be adjusted forward or backward for better balance. The apparatus collapses down to 23.6" to fit in an included carrying case for portability.

The FLYCAM Flowline Placid Two-Axis Spring Arm attaches to your Flowline camera support and provides vibration isolation to your camera, camera rig, or gimbal in two axes.

The Flowcine Placid comes packed in a custom-cut thick foam padding insert
The position on the top arm can be adjusted forward and back, allowing you to control how far away or close to your body the camera is at rest

what if I will use it with more weight (8kg or 9kg) than it supports? It's possible or what's the risks?
Asked by: Hayk
According the manufacturer the Flycam Basic Flowline Stabilizing Support Vest with 180° Rotation, should only be used with weight loads of up to 7.5 kg, for proper functionality. For more weight support, we recommend the FLYCAM Flowline Master Stabilizing Support Vest for Camera Gimbals: https://bhpho.to/3KYFQo5
