The counterweight pointing out the front offers optimal protection from actors should they try to charge you. Stabbycam.

Unless an infant is the hand model in the photo gallery, the thing is enormous. At least it's HD compatible. Most of my tripods are SD only.

Your first post was deleted since it was in the wrong section. It was also deleted since it's not exactly a professional stabilizer.

As for it looking to be a good product at low cost..... Well I'm going to disagree

Jerome,

I deleted your first post not only because it was in the wrong section but because it was your first post ever! When I see someone join the forum the very day they post something that is akin to an ad and its their first post ever, I assume it is the manufacturer masquerading as a member of our community. On top of this, you spelled "Steadicam" wrong and this is a professional forum and your product (assuming it is your product) is nothing but. Any questions?

Hi everybody,
I'm Jaco from SturdyShots, inventor of the SturdyCam.
I was googling to see what people think about my product and got here.
Just want to tell you that Jerome Colot is not "me", I mean he's truly a customer who was searching for reviews (with no success since product is new). Of course I would have never come here to show (not advertise...I never write direct link in forums) my product...I know the difference between my stabilizer and yours! (I'm not idiot! :lol: )

Alec Jarnagin SOC you're completely right! My product is not a professional one...at all, my phylosophy is "against" the professional product in the sense that it was born from "rage" again the fact that a steadYcam (I know the difference between I and Y ;) costs many K$ that I didn't have...that's it.

See you!

Jaco

P.s.
Thanks for the tennis ball idea...maybe I'll add it to the 2.0 version :P

Well,
since he was searching for reviews, why is he pretty much
advertising the product here? :blink:

Ask administration to check for geographical Ip. It's not me.
Don't believe it? Remove the thread I don't care (again: it's not the right place to talk about that).
Thanks

I googled it a while back because this seemed kinda advertisy, but after doing so, it really did seem the OP had nothing to do with the company. Wow, I just spilled coffee all over the keyboard just now (Again). hellcrapdamn.
