Just wondered if anyone had suggestions for camera stabilization for the HVX 200? The HVX would be pushing it with the Merlin as it's max is 5 pounds. The Fig Rig is the only other one that might do the job that is in the under $1500/under price range. Anyone tried either with this camera? Any other suggestions?
The steadicam flyer or any pro steadicam will fly it very nice with a pratice cage.
Had a little play with the hvx at the BSC new equipment show the other day.
Looking forward to getting mine !

Fig Rig is not a stabilizer. I have used the sled(a baer bel type) holding it from the curved pipe
of the gimbal to fly a dvx 100 and was happy with
the results. I suppose it behaved much like a steadicam JR. My wrist got tired after a while.
but set up is immediate.
