Yoko Steady Stabilizer Support. Useful or just gimmick?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, while i was looking around for a steadicam, I stumbled across this gear here.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/MOVOFILMS-Yoko-camera-stabilizer-steadycam-support-rig-for-flycam-steady-tripod-/161807263731

It's an extension that turn the steadicam into dual-handheld mode (not sure how much that help)

I googled and looked throughout YouTube but I couldn't find a single review or comments on it. What do you think?

so it prevents ur hand from controlling the post

 

which means it embraces both short comings of electronic 1000 axis gimbals and the amazing steadicam (without the arm).

 

so LOL.

Just to clarify, I'm not associated with the seller or product in the link I've posted :D I was looking to get a steadicam + arm brace for myself and then i saw this "Yoko stabilizer". Was curious on the difference of arm brace and that, but good thing I did not purchase it. I only tried a steadicam once and my wrist were shaking after a 15 minutes shoot. Hope this clears up the suspicion. Cheers! :D

Hi King. There are no stupid questions as long as you made some research first (which you seemed to have) the biggest issue with stabilization (both Steadicam and Movi gimbal's) is lifting the thing. For that, nothing beats an arm and a vest, even with a small rig. Your muscles can work in finesse or strength, but not both at the same time. Get the lifting off your hands so you can work in finesse.
