question

Could this be used with Glidecam Devin Graham Signature Series?
Asked by: Scott S.
This vest and arm is designed to support up to 10lbs of camera payload in addition to the Steadicam. You would have to see if your Glidecam has similar weight specifications and also check to see how it attaches to an arm. The post on the end of this arm is specifically designed for the Merlin 2.

question

Have the Pilot and Merlin 2 the same arm and veste?
Asked by: Anonymous
The one in the picture is the older version of vest and arm (was the same as pilot), maybe they still sell this as the merlin kit now. The new pilot vest and arm look slightly different now (vest has buckles, arm has finger protectors and non-angled gimbal post).

question

What is the difference between the Merlin arm/vest kit and the Solo arm/vest kit other than the price (the Solo arm/vest kit costs $120 more)?
Asked by: Anonymous
The difference is the arm post kit. The merlin uses a different adapter than the Solo/Pilot. You would need to buy the Pilot Arm Post Kit for $37.95 from BH.
