We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
The RPS Studio FloPod Video Stabilizer is an innovative stabilizing support for video DSLR cameras. Conceptually the FloPod borrows from stabilizers with 3-axis gimbals, but the form factor is all its own, and optimized for hybrid DSLR cameras that do both stills and HD video. Mounted to a C-bracket, the camera's weight pulls the bracket left & right, resulting in horizontally stable framing even as you walk and tilt the handgrips slightly side to side. The FloPod stabilizer also allows rotation in the vertical dimension, and thus it eliminates movement that would otherwise result in front-to-back tilt. Three lock wheels serve as drag controls – two for the vertical axis (front-to-back tilt) and one for the horizontal axis (side-to-side shake). These allow you to customize the unit's "play" to accommodate different camera weights & for the degree of fluidity of movement that you want. You can also lock the vertical axis if you'd like to tilt forward and back with the FloPod. An included zoom ring with a large lever attaches to your lens barrel; this allows you to zoom in and out easily with a single finger while you keep the rest of your hand on a grip. Also included are counterweights that add to the inertia of the camera, for more fluid motion. The result is smoother video capture from a lightweight, affordable stabilizer rig.
