TYPES OF PROFESSIONAL CAMERA STABILIZERS

Updated: Feb 12

Our simple professional camera stabilizer buying guide!

WHAT TYPE OF PROFESSIONAL CAMERA STABILIZER SHOULD I GET?

Don’t worry, below I have explained the four main kinds of professional camera stabilizers for DSLRs and Digital Cinema Cameras that you can buy today.

THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF PROFESSIONAL CAMERA STABILIZERS ARE:

1. A Body Harnesses Vest with Springs:

specially designed for heavy weight cameras, is the first step in camera stabilization specially designed for those cameraman that still use the camera over their shoulders, an ergonomic solution based on a vest and a spring arm that will let you distribute the weight of a film camera thru your body.

It's a cheap alternative specially designed for handheld camera operators, a nice solution to save some pain on their back, shoulders and arms, the most well-known option is the Easyrig.

2. A 3-Axis Gimbal:

A 3-axis stabilizer makes automatic adjustments, based on gravity to give you almost perfectly stable footage without human errors. Some of the most popular options are battery-powered motorized 3-axis gimbals, such as the famous DJI Ronin and freefly movi.

These stabilizers take around 20 minutes to mount & balance. The main problem with 3 axis gimbals is the issue with the 4 axis or z axis or up and down movement while walking because they do not have a shock absorber arm to do that job for them, and then the problem of holding the weight of the gimbal and the camera with your arms. So its a cheap option for starters. If you ever thought that saving some money buying a 3 axis gimbal like the ones from Dji Ronin or the Freefly Movi will give you the same results in terms of performance and stability as buying a 8 axis hybrid steadycam gimbal system, well the answer is NO.

3. Mechanic Steadicam:

This kind of stabilizers are the first camera stabilizers ever made , invented in 1975 by Garret Brown the owner of Steadicam until a few years ago now in hands of Tiffen corporation. It's made of 3 main components, also know as Vest stabilizers combine together a comfortable vest, a center post with a gimbal handle and counterweights, and then a double shock absorber arm. Some of the most well-known options include Tiffen Steadicam, glidecam, and Basson Steady.

These stabilizers are mostly used with high-end digital cinema cameras as well as lightweight dslr cameras.

4. Hybrid Steadycam Gimbal:

This last option has the latests advantages of mixing a mechanic steadiacm with gimbal technology, the result the perfect camera stabilization machine ever made.

It is made of 4 main components, also know as Hybrid Vest stabilizers combine together a comfortable vest, a center post with a gimbal handle and counterweights, and then a double shock absorber arm, plus a gimbal rotary head, that works with brushless motors to improve the balance pf the camera.

The Basson Steady hybrid steadycam model Endless works with dslr as well a with digital cinema cameras from 0.5kgs to 10kgs.

Some of the most well-known options include Arri trinity, mkv-ar, and Basson Steady.
