Lately, I’ve been testing out different stabilizers for my URSA Mini camera. I have tried a full-size steadicam. This worked great, but isn’t a good option when traveling to film shoots in far-away places (because of the size and weight).
I have also tested out a few 3-axis gimbals. One in particular that I liked was the CAME-TV Prodigy, which I reviewed a few days ago.
Still, I was looking for something that packs even smaller and works no matter what. As you know, digital camera gimbals can fail, or require calibration or batteries – that’s why I always try to take with me a traditional steadicam-type camera stabilizer. One such stabilizer that I’ve tested out – and loved – is the Glidecam Devin Graham Signature Series handheld stabilizer .
Devin Graham is a popular YouTuber who almost always uses a glidecam to make his videos.
He and the designers at Glidecam came up with a new version that addressed all the things that I personally didn’t like about the previous versions of the Glidecam stabilizers. But please watch the video below for all my thoughts and some test shots.
Here is a short video with more of my test shots
