Product Description

The Hague MMC Mini Motion Cam is the original small handheld camera stabilizer designed and manufactured by Hague Camera Supports in Nottingham, England. The new version of the MMC is our most advanced and exciting model incorporating a new streamlined design, the highly advanced H2 gimble, and it now supports cameras up to 1kg (2.2lbs) straight out the box. The original MMC set a precedent as the world's first low cost, yet highly effective, stabilizer and the current model just takes it to the next level. This compact unit eliminates camera shake and allows the user to create those true floating shots. The most important part of a stabilizer is its gimble as it essential that the handle is totally free moving. The MMC has always had the smoothest moving gimble of its type making it far superior and more effective than any other ball type stabilizer on the market. The new Hague H2 advanced gimble maintains the free moving capabilities of its predecessor but has now been housed in a more secure socket which prevents the risk of the handle becoming loose if misused. The gimble has a super smooth, highly polished ball securely enclosed in a nylon socket. The MMC stabilizer now supports cameras from 300g (0.7lbs) - 1kg (2.2lbs) as standard straight out the box. Cameras below 300g (0.7lbs) or above 1kg (2.2lbs) can also be balanced with the additional accessories sold by Hague and attachments to add phones or action cameras are also available. The Mini Motion Cam is ideal for DSLR cameras, small camcorders, SLR cameras, phones, action cameras and compact cameras. The stabilizer is a counterbalance system with the camera attached directly to the top by a standard 1/4" camera screw with adjustment for moving the camera forwards and back for balancing. At the bottom there is an adjustable counterbalance platform which allows you to adjust the positioning of the weights making it a much more simple process than other stabilizing systems. www.haguecamerasupports.com

I just unpacked my Hague MMC Mini and I wanted you to have an actual review, not just "perfect gift" or whatever that other "review" said.

First: Build quality is great. solid feel and function. Weights, however, look to be washers from any home supply center (But work just fine)

Second: Be prepared to spend 15-20 minutes scratching your head as to how balance is achieved. Be patient and follow the included instructions. You CAN do this! Im no pro, and I managed to get perfect balance in 20-25 minutes. When you get it, youll never struggle with it again. Like riding a bike, I guess.

Third: (and why only four stars) If your mounting screw on the bottom of your camera isnt positioned at the balance point (right,left, or front ,back of center) you will need to purchase a "balance correction plate" from Hague, as well. My Sony HDR-CX7 has the off center mount, so I had to order one from England. In the meantime, I am using a makeshift adaptor I rigged in my garage. It works, but Id rather have the proper part. Even if it is another 25-30$ shipped.

Overall: You wont regret this little stabilizer! Its FANTASTIC.

Out of the box I mounted a Sony CX110 camcorder which would NOT balance no matter what. Thought I was going crazy! The thing would balance best with NO weights and even then it still wobbled a bit. Just for kicks I mounted an old Canon S1 camera and got it balanced in just a few minutes. So after Googling around a bit and checking out their site, I ran across their weight correction adaptor that specifically mentions "If your camera weighs less than 300g. we would recommend you use a Weight Correction Adaptor."

Although the item description mentions "Ideal camera weight 0.7lb (0.3kg) to 1.8lb (0.8kg)" do you really know how much your camcorder weighs and are you really checking? I'm pretty sure every modern Flash-based camcorder (including those GoPro cameras) is going to fall into this lightweight category and potential customers should be warned beforehand. It simply will NOT balance properly without the adapter!

Anyway, I went ahead and ordered the $20 adapter and finally got the CX110 balanced. The adapter just raises the camera a couple inches and I suppose you could MacGuyver something to do the same if you had the items available.

Takes a bit of time and tweaking getting the balance just right. And even then, you can never seem satisfied that it's ever 'right'. It will not make you a hotshot videographer overnight but with a little practice you can get some nice steady video. If you pack the stabilizer in a luggage be warned the ball joint is pretty much guaranteed to pop out and be in two pieces when you get to your destination and unpack. It's not hard to pop it back in but just be aware! Don't let it just ride on the balljoint, it will pop back on with a little force.

This stabilizer cannot cope with the max weight that it claims. Heavier camcorders will end up with some side to side sway because it just can't handle the weight it claims it can.
More importantly for me though is that fact that the cork at the top (which is necessary for keeping the camera in place) is poorly stuck. The ends of the cork started to raise off revealing the glue (so be prepared to have to glue it back). This happened with my first use and within minutes (and believe me, I was not rough with the device at all). I have seen other persons make the same complaint on youtube demo videos of the product.

I bought the Hague Steadicam MMC specifically for my GoPro Hero 3 Black. I found it very easy to set up and use. If you are having a problem doing this, just search the internet and you will see several videos on the simple process. Because the GoPro is quite light, I found slight pressure with my finger at the pivot point helps keep it from turning in the breeze. An added bonus; my Canon 2Ti (550D) works quite nicely on it as well. Not only did buying at Amazon save a ton on shipping charges from the manufacturer in Europe; the actual unit price was less. I would like to see its accessories be available on Amazon as well; they look to be useful additions to the steadicam, but the shipping charges really hikes the cost up to make them a no-go. Though I saw several do-it-yourself versions of this type of steadicam on the internet, I found the price of this unit not only a good value, but I didn't have to go through the trouble of building my own.

I wanted to eliminate the nasty sway in my videos when filming, found this product from viewing YouTube videos. Out of the 5 I looked at on amazon I settled on this one due to likening the video results. I also liked that I could use this with other point n shoots and my gopro .
The package: came on time, but not to my address .. I have a prime account, and ups didn't deliver it themselves.. They sent it off to usps, who delivered it to a different address.. Thankfully the person swiftly brought it to my door.. Thank you good neighbor..

The stadicam: great product .. It's stable and not plastic.. The gimble is ok but works great for light camera use...

So I use this mainly with a gopro hero 3+ and now the LCD pack on the back.. I've managed to get it balanced by adding a big weight under the tripod mount then screwing on the go pro to the tripod, screw.. I use the go pro, LCD back, LCD back case, single extension that came with the LCD backpack.
Now once this is on .. I have the top on then put a small weight on the bottom, and give it a small tilt to the side of the gopro screws ..
With this set up it's decently balanced to where I get minimum to no swaying .
If you get swaying you have to much weight on the bottom, so look into it.

Other cameras I used : I also used it with a 60D way to imbalanced , with a 35mm prime it was a little better .. But the camera still toppled over with all the weights .. Need to make a balance plate.
I also used it with a canon elph 110s , it worked good with it, but would need to add weight to the top to get it better balanced, then reconfigure the whole thing.

If you want to see some sample videos I have up so far check out my YouTube page dbest1a .. I have an unboxing and a few sample videos .. Just search on my homepage for Hague
