Revo ST-1000 overview

  • 1Description

The Revo ST-1000 Pro Video Stabilizer is a handheld camera support device designed for shooting smooth, shake-free video. Once mastered, camera operators can use the ST-1000 to create fluid, "floating" camera movements, even when walking or running. The ST-1000 has a max capacity of approximately 4.85 lb, which makes it ideal for HDSLRs and small to midsized camcorders.

The ST-1000 employs a multi-axis gimbal, which isolates the camera from incidental twisting and wobbling motions. The adjustable baseplate features a quick release mounting plate and a bubble level, which can be used for fine tuning the proper balance. A 5-piece counterbalance weight set is also included. The foam padded handle and knurled stabilizer ring support one-handed operation, although two hands are recommended for optimal control.

    Revo ST-1000 reviews

    ST-1000 Pro Video Stabilizer is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 48.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Little Tough To Setup Setup on this stabilizer, like any other I've seen, requires getting the center of gravity (CG) of the entire assembly just below the gimbal along with having upper and lower masses acting as much as possible on a vertical line to achieve dynamic as well as static balance. That being said the Revo does not have a forward weighting point and no cookbook guide but is a fraction of the price of a more brand name stabilizer and given patience can function quite satisfactorily. Without adding improvised counterweight to my camera (Nikon d5100) I cannot change out batteries without dismounting it. It does make for a much smoother appearance in handheld video shots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, once you figure it out. The problem is that no one seems to be able to describe how to balance your camera on this. Certainly not the manual and many of the YouTube videos are plain wrong. The trick is mount your camera on it and gradually add small increments of weight until the camera slowly rights itself. Then you adjust for tilt and yaw. After I figured it out, it was amazing. And since all stabilizers act on the same principal, there is no reason to spend a lot of money for something fancy and this product is a terrific value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent piece of Gear The Revo ST-1000 stabilizer is a pefext piece of gear for those who are beginners in stabilized videography. It takes a big amount of patience to balance this stabilizer but once perfect balance is achieved the $ pays off better than any of the more expensive gear. The less expensive price of this stabilizer certainly limits its design slightly and results into a more difficult way of making fine adjustments. In fact, I had to tape some coins to the camera's body top for perfect balance but after that, each one of my movie clips looked liked they where taken on a million dollar movie budget.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Design, documentation lacking Any of these stabilizers are useless unless balanced properly. The documentation for the ST-1000 isn't very helpful. Go read the documentation for the Stedicam Merlin 2 for useful hints on how to properly balance a stabilizer. Once you balance you ST-1000, don't even think of putting it down, unless you remove the camera. If you set it down with the camera still mounted you will put strain on the tiny single screw that prevents the lower arm from rotating. This loosens up the screw hole which then allows the lower arm to rotate a bit. Any rotation of the lower arm will throw off your balance. The camera will tilt left or right. Rather than fixing the balance with the set screws, just lightly tap the lower weight left or right to nudge it back to position. Once you get it close, you can fine tune with the balancing set screws. Be careful, once the lower arm loosens up, anytime you set the unit down, you will need to rebalance when you pick it up. My lower arm loosened up on the first day. On the plus side, as long as you can hold the stabilizer/camera without ever putting it down, it is a fine unit. At the end of the day, you need to unbalance the unit in order to put it away. It's helpful to have a portable tape measure. This allows you to measure where the arm was, so you have a starting balancing position when you set it up again. It's also helpful to have a small zip lock bag to hold the camera screw and associated plastic washer. When the camera is removed from the quick release plate, you need to make sure you don't lose the screw. There is no onboard place for storage. Hopefully the next version can include a threaded hole on the mounting plate for storing the camera screw, and a spline to keep the lower arm from spinning side to side.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rocking = No Drag Right out of the box I was impressed with the quality of construction, from the well-designed mechanicals and balance adjustments to the plating on the weights! Top to bottom it's a really nicely made unit.Not surprisingly, it takes a lot of patience, tweaking and adjusting to achieve a perfect balance in all axes. Awareness of what one is trying to achieve by each adjustment is the key to success.The most notable improvements needed are to either make the 1/4-20 camera mounting screw captive on the baseplate (as in most tripods)or to provide a 1/4-20 tapped hole that would serve as a place to store the screw when not being used. Otherwise, this special screw can be esily lost. Also, I've learned to carry a dime (coin) in my bag to make sure that I always have a means by which I can tighten and loosen this screw. There is no counter-locking screw assembly on the unit and it cannot be tightened by hand.I think the unit would benefit by having the slightest bit of drag in the gimbal mount. Drag (similar to that which would be seen in a ball and socket) would be beneficial in dampening out any rocking of the unit. The slightest bump or perturbation causes the unit to rock for an extended period of time because the 'universal joint' type gimbal has absolutely NO drag. To stop the rocking, one needs to hold the unit until it becomes motionless again.It is also possible (if you are loosening knobs and really not paying attention) to have the camera become separated from the stabilizer unexpectedly. This could be disasterous. Not having the benefit of having used more expensive units but having the advantage of an engineering background, I can say that this is a sweet unit overall and I have no reservations about recommending it. However, it takes awareness to not only calibrate it but to keep the camera safe.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product I use my stabilizer with a Sony HDR-SR12 video camera. It was quite an experience to set it up correctly. I found a helpful video on Youtube on how to do it and everything is ok now. The user guide is quite useless... This thing needs many hours of practice so don't expect to be able to shoot a good stabilized video just after hooking your camera on it ! All in all a great product but it needs many hours of practice.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cirque du Soleil couldn't balance this thing Seems to be well made, but I spent hours trying to balance this thing with no luck. I read reviews, watched Youtube videos, even followed the minimal directions that came with the stabilizer. Still no luck. I have a Canon Rebel T6i and no matter what I tried, it just wouldn't balance. I would get the little level bubble smack dead in the middle, but as soon as I moved my hand a fraction of an inch, the camera would start swaying and slowly turning. I'm guessing I was close to getting it perfectly balanced, but I was never able to find that sweet spot no matter how many tiny adjustements I made. After spending over 3 hours trying to balance thing thing, I decided to give it away to someone before it drove me completely insane.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets rid of the shakes This works fairly well. It does take a lot of practice to get used to it and control the shot. At first, you go from shaky without it to wobbly with it. I had to practice with it for several days before I could use it smoothly. It would be nice if the mount also fit my tripod. It is kind of a pain to switch mounts every time. I can run with it and video looks pretty good. Gets a little heavy after awhile. I don't know what reasonably priced stabilizer wouldn't though, especially when used with a pretty heavy video camera in the first place.
