I Have a Canon 7D and a shoulder mounted rig. For my next project I need more fluid more and was thinking of investing in a stabilized Rig I recently found the Flycam nano and was thinking of getting it with the brace instead of a glidecam. If anyone had any reservations or suggestions for better kit, it would be appreciated. By the way, i am based in the UK

From what i've seen online the flycam is light and tends to wobble

I don't have any experience with the Flycam, but I have the Glidecam Smooth Shooter & 4000pro sled setup.
It works great!

Just the sled would probably be sufficient for the 7D.
Get one, try it out, and if your arm is killing you, then get the rest of the rig.

Flycam is light?I've use flycam 3000 with 5D and 24-70mm, it's really heavy I ever used.
I prefer STEADICAM MERLIN tho it is expensive, but it is more lightweight and precis adjustment.
