Product Description

The Flycam 5000 is a light weight, hand-held camcorder stabilizing system designed for cameras weighing from 2 to 8 pounds.Our new designed product create a stabilization system that works so gracefully and professionally, you'll see why the idea of making a camera glide through the air isn't just a dream, it's a reality.

With the Flycam 5000 you no longer need a tripod or a dolly. The Flycam 5000 will support any camcorder or movie camera weighing up to 8 pounds. It is quick and easy to set up and balance. Allows unrestricted Booming and unrestricted 360 degree Panning. Only 15" tall. Made of precision Aluminum.

You can easily attach a small LCD monitor to the base monitor mount hole if needed. Weighs 2.7 pounds without counterbalance disks.

The Camera Base plate has both 1/4" and 3/8" mounting slots (holes) to accommodate all variety of camera bases. You can slide your camera with base plate of steadycam on both the horizontal and vertical axes, achieved by means of thumbscrews and a movable camera base plate. With both back and forth, and side to side motion versatility, this device allows quick adjustments to the cameras horizontal balance. By varying the amount of counterweight disks on the base platform the vertical balance can be adjusted. When balanced properly the camera floats, ready for you to move into action.

Let me start off by saying that I am by no means unsatisfied by this product. If I could, I would give it a 3 1/2 star rating.
The price was a bit steep for the amount of engineering / materials used to make this device.
But then after I bought it, I found it on another site for $100 less, so you can find it for what you would normally find p.o.s. steady-cams.
The whole weight set up is more than awkward, with having these little compartments for the weights to go into. Why not just have a longer screw and wing nut? OH! And the weights are anything but accurate. You will need to go out and buy some flat washers so that you can better fine tune the amount of weight used.
All things considered, you can (with practice) achieve high quality stabilized footage with this product. I have used it on many occasions; including, several half day, and full day sessions. With the addition of the Arm Brace, you can wield this device for longer periods with less effort.
All in all, find this for less than $200, and then buy it. OOOHHH, make sure to buy the QUICK RELEASE ADAPTER for the mounting plate, or you will find yourself like me, spending time undoing the camera from the device instead of just releasing the quick release adapter.

This works perfectly. If anyone had a problem with it not working, it must be their inability to balance the camera. I've used it successfully right out the box with my Nikon D7000 and got smooth motion and video. There is some technique and awareness required to make it work perfectly, but this can be developed rather quickly. Just relax and move smoothly and gracefully. Good camera operation requires a focused mind like any other artform. The diligent will excel in their medium. Enjoy this steadycam at the price it is at. Half the price of the Glidecam and just as functional.

I read multiple reviews before buying this product and despite the multiple reviews where people say they cannot balance their steadycam I thought to myself 'ehh, I'm sure mine will work fine'. So, I went ahead and bought one and I found i have the exact same problem as everyone else. The issue is, while you can get the static balance correct (its balanced facing forward) as soon as you turn the camera to the right left or 180 degrees, everything gets thrown out of whack. So, after I found this, I emailed the company and they were good about sending me another one... Guess what, same exact problem. So, I think it is just a quality control issue. With this sort of thing every hole, every axis, every screw needs to be perfect or it wont balance correctly and a lack of quality control shows in this product. While this product is useable and is better than running with nothing, I would STRONGLY urge you to save up the extra few hundred and get one of the entry level glidecams because it is simply not worth the stress, time and effort needed to make this product even remotely useable.
