The PPS3 Auxiliary Panpilot Camera Stabilizer & Tripod is an intriguing combination of a lightweight camera stabilizer and tripod, thanks to its three adjustable counterweight arms which double as a static support. Unlike conventional gimbaled camera stabilizers, the Panpilot is rigid, allowing a certain amount of gestural expression, while maintaining basic camera stability due to the pendulum effect of the counterweights.

    PPS3 Auxiliary Panpilot Camera Stabilizer & Tripod is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and easy to use I have been using this item for several years and having students use it at the film school I work for. It is a sturdy piece of equipment, is easily transported and set up. It works on multiple small and medium video and HDSLR cameras. Replacement parts (when students lose them) are easily available from the manufacturer.
