The reason why I ask it because I am working on a student film and am using a Panasonic p2 dvcpro, and was given this stedicam by my professor to use. But there are no words or numbers on this thing at all so I can not do any research on it.

The research I am looking for is to help with a problem I am having. When I put the camera on the stedicam, it leans to one side or the other, I can never get a straight shot with this thing, and I dont want to have to use a tripod.

It's a shoulder brace not a steadicam

That just looks like a shoulder mount, not Steadicam type of stabilizer. I would guess that the lower part would actually have to be adjusted to rest against you chest to make smaller hand held cameras act more like bigger, shoulder mount cameras.

yeah, that's definitely a shoulder mount. It looks like it has chest support too. Did you say you're putting an HVX on that? The wobbling may be because It might not be strong enough to hold the weight of the camera. I can't be certain, but it looks like it was designed for DV handycams or still cameras.

That's one of those new Tiffen models. The Python, or Jamba or something.
