    Steadicam 801-7100 reviews

    801-7100 Metal Gimbal Assembly is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Where's the metal upgrade? I purchased this item to replace the stock plastic gimbal from my Steadicam Merlin. The fact that the stock gimbal was made of plastic was a concern of mine, so I looked into this metal gimbal. When I received the new metal gimbal replacement, I didn't notice a vast improvement of the materials. I was expecting to see more metal parts but after carefully comparing it with my stock plastic gimbal, I did not see the value of this investment, so I returned it. In my humble opinion, if your stock plastic gimbal is in good condition, I see no reason for the metal gimbal upgrade. However, if you damaged your gimbal and need a new one, this gimbal will works perfectly fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gimbal extends weight limit. I needed a replacement gimbal for my Merlin and Sony EX-1 after an accident. The metal gimbal allows me to use the camera and a wireless mic it extends its weight limit. It's certainly maxing it out, but works great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from What I expected I purchased this because my orginal one broke. It was my fault for the break thouqh. I set it on a stand that was not strong enough to support the weight and the stand tipped over. I was surprised how easy it broke off, but merlin does state not to let it bend beyond a certain point. Either way it was easy to install again and my stedicam is good to go!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Good. My old one lost a pin after moderate - heavy use. I probably used it 40-50 times before it lost a pin. I thought this new one might be heavy duty but it is identical to the original.
