Hi guys,

these are the only "low cost" viable options, in my opinion.

Thanks for your input Jens !

 

How about the actionproducts RebelElite Arm ?  (it's only a backmounted arm).

Not familiar with this one, but it's all about performance, longevity and customer service, not the price.

The issue with tying to go cheaper with those expensive things is that you will find yourself with something that has potentially less efficiency, close to no re-sell value, no/limited customer service and maintenance.
For the back mount only, this arm will limit you in your choice of vest. I know a few people who are unhappy with that and now have to sell everything and buy it all again just to change their vest.

I see your point, Victor Lazaro. 

At the end one gets what he pays for... can't escape it I guess.

Easy steady arm works just fine. I work with it for 5 years already and have no problems whatsoever... it can fly an Alexa with follow focus, video link monitor and matte box with filter7s -
