Canon EOS 7D Camera Stabilizer Reviews
Opteka SteadyVid PRO – Video Stabilizer System $179.95
When it comes to walkthrough interviews or documentaries, nothing carries the same powerful production value as a video stabilizing system. Still to this day I am impressed by the drastic difference this makes in handheld movement shots. Whether you are following a subject through an important conference or doing a fly through of that same conference, the steady cam video stabilizing system is a must have for those shots.

Opteka SteadyVid Pro camera stabilizer – Test
The Opteka SteadyVid Pro breaks away from accepted conventional thinking in steady cam design. Unlike the standard I or T, the Opteka SteadyVid Pro employs a C shape. This allows for a simpler weight system to account for 2 axis of rotation. This also allows for a more central position for the handle.
The only drawbacks to this design is the weight limitations in cameras it can hold, but for consumer grade cameras up to 5 lbs it gets great reviews across the internet.

DSLR FLYCAM NANO – Video camera stabilizer System $179.99
If you’re looking for a more conventional accepted stabilizing system design, but can’t afford the high end versions then the DSLR Flycam nano is an excellent choice. It shares many of the known attributes of its thoroughbred cousins without a thoroughbred price tag.
Now even through this steady cam is actually rated at less weight capacity then the Opteka SteadyVid Pro, its conventional design affords itself to modification by adding extra weights and adjusting the central rod position. (Warning using any device outside the manufacture specifications, should be attempted at your own risk).
