Which Steadicam would be more suitable for Panasonic's AG-DVX100? It weights 4.4lbs in full operating condition.

It's for a low budget video clip - so which one would be better, JR or Mini?

Thank You in Advance.

The mini is a sweet rig for light camera like the DVX100. It's an actual vest and arm situation.

The JR is more of a handheld device that takes some of the shakiness out. It allows for some neat moves, but doesn't handle walking or running nearly as well, IMO.

It all comes down to the look you are going for and your budget. A lot of places stock the JR, so you can try it out. And there are generally a few places in most large cities that will stock a Mini as well so you may be able to try it out and compare.
