  1. Is this model good?

    I’ve been looking for a stabilizer for a long time, but reading reviews online failed to point me to a good one in the lower price ranges like this…

    The text above sounds like the manufacturer’s corporate writing.

    But maybe appearing on your Blog equals an endorsement for its quality?
    (just making sure 😉

    1. Yes it’s rated up to 5 lbs, but I always err on the side of caution with max ratings. Even so it’s more than adequate for mirrorless.

      It folds at the midpoint which is handy for travel.

      I wouldn’t pay full retail but at $150 after rebate. This is a very good price for genuine Steadycam.
