I'm wondering what some of the small or smaller compact isoelastic arms available for under 5 lb systems, including mirrorless digital, iphone, go pros ... etc.  My main concern would be single axis horizontal stabiliation. I'm looking to stabilize the system while walking (no running jumping or stairs) so the "travel" of the arm or spring can be less than a foot.


If there's a kit out there that would be wonderful - but I'm willing to go the DIY route.





Thanks in advance for any help.

Correction I meant vertical stabilization instead of horizontal.


Oops sorry :unsure:

... The human arm works pretty well for loads under 5 lbs.

There isn't nearly enough mass to keep momentum and stabilize the camera with anything under 5 pounds. Like Alan said, is your arm!
