The Plume Handi-Pod Stabilizing System with Telescoping Monopod is a portable motion control system for making tracking and trucking, pan or boom shots with small DV and MPEG cameras or to stabilize still cameras following motion, by using gravity to balance and smooth out camera motion.
Consists of a center camera mount with three weighted arms balanced atop a small monoball and telescoping handle/monopod which together absorb the undesired motions of your hands and body.
Can also be used to move from static to dynamic shots, used as a fixed table tripod, then lifted to follow motion or fixed to a small tripod, then removed to follow the action. Or can "chock" the Handi-Pod under both arms without the monopod.
Accepts smaller DV and still cameras for up to about 1.1-lb (1/2 kg). Adding additional weight to the handles allow the use of larger cameras.
