It is without the supporting plate for the camera.
I was offered to buy it, but I do not know its value and its characteristics, because I can not find information on the internet.
attached the images of the object
many thanks ,Andrea

This is one of those Steadicam small camera cheap stabilizers.
Obviously your "friend" wants to sell it and certainly for more than its worth.
If the parts are all there and it actually "works" then its worth about $300. max in my book.
He'll posture etc and be all annoyed but that's it.
Whether it actually balances etc I doubt it. So my advise is save your money and buy at least a glidecam and preferably a Pilot from Tiffen.
Good luck and don't be swayed. Its kind of junk.

My advise to the owner of this rig; donate it to a school, value it at whatever he thinks, like 4k, and take it off your taxes.
That's where he/she will get the most money out of it.
(Look out your window the world has passed-by this stuff, recycling bin for most of it.)
