The PPS8 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.

    PPS8 Auxiliary Panpilot Camera Stabilizer & Tripod is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT STEADY CAM!!! I use the Panpilot Steady Cam for almost every shot I take because of the tripod capability. Also, It is fun to just pick up and walk or run with it too. I wish I had two for different shots at the same time. I would highly recommend this to any student or pro.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic stabilizer I recently acquired a panpilot to use for both myself and my students. It is easy to put together and get started using. The weight is great and not too heavy for prolonged shooting. The tripod design is great for stabilization and control. My college students love it! They have been excited to be able to manifest their visions with a more professional seamless look. The only problem now is that we only have 1 panpilot.
