I know most here are photographers but I thought this might be of interest to those of us that do the fusion thing (photography and video). For the last 15 years I've been mainly a videographer with a photography background, well now I'm trying to bring the two together and offer more options to my clients. I had a Canon 60D and a Blackbird stabilizer that I recently sold and replaced with this new system. The whole thing was under a 1000. and includes 2 cameras (1 shooting 4K), 3 axis stabilized gimbal, mini tripod & holder, extra batteries for everything, and a pelican style case. This works better, weighs a lot less, does more, and is cheaper. Definitely a win-win.

Bryan - It might help some of us not familiar with your equipment if you'd post a photo of the rig that took that video. It sure was well stabilized, seemed like the camera was floating on air.

Wow. That really is a small package. That looks smaller than the cartridges my daughter's video camera used (Hi8 I think?), which was a Sony rig of some kind.

It still amazes me what is getting packed in ever smaller devices these days.

THAT little thing made that video?
Amazing!
Thanks for the pics. When I first looked at this I said "I don't see a camera in there..."
Guess I was wrong!
