Buy a steadicam that can hold heavy weights. Sure the lighter ones are cheaper but in the long run when you start to get better and better you will be kicking yourself when you have to buy a new steadicam to shoot 35mm (for tv commercials etc).

Pay the extra

if he is looking at a steadicam in the range of 2000 dollars i dont think it would be logical to pay the extra to get a rig that can handle 35mm, as the extra would be between 30 and 80 thousand.

I have no experience with movcam but have heard good and bad reviews, for what your looking to fly though it should suit well. The later of the two i would advise against. It may serve your purpose for a few months but it will almost definatly break, and maybe smash your camera in the process
Glidecam make some ok rigs for the price range, and if you come across some more cash the steadicam flyer is a lot of fun. And it has a high payload for its size
