Rotorview Steadicam – $4000 3-Axis Stabilizer
I expect to see an onslaught of 3-axis handheld gimble stabilizers over the next couple months. Rotorview Sweden has one available now for $4000 US. It offers quiet brushless motors and aluminum/carbon construction with a load limit of 3.3 pounds. That’s enough for most DSLRs or the Black Magic Pocket Camera and a prime lens. Check out the video sample below for the ultra-smooth-ostitude!
After seeing so many DIY projects that look fragile with not-so-smooth footage…it’s nice to have a solid, pro-looking option that is available to purchase right now. It’s a great time for filmmakers! Until next time…
