1.) Lubrication - out of the box, the ball joint on the gimbal is dry. That means it's going to squeak a lot as well as catch when you move, resulting in a shaky and disjointed video. A drop of 3-in-1 oil did the trick for me, making the gimbal smooth and silent. Before lubricating the joint, this unit was essentially unusable, so don't skip this part.
2.) Balance - this can be one of the more frustrating aspects of this device. It needs to be perfectly balanced on all three axes. This unit is highly adjustable, giving you many options for balancing, which is great when you're using a camcorder or DSLR with articulated view screen throwing your balance off to one side. Be prepared to fiddle with it for a while before you get it perfectly balanced.
3.) Technique - this is probably the single most important factor in getting good results. Don't expect to mount a camera, balance it, and be off and running. If you want to minimize sway and wobble, you absolutely must learn to move with the camera. You have to dampen all of your movements, from your footsteps to your decelerations and panning. So many negative reviews on here don't account for the learning curve of devices like this. You have to use it quite a bit before you get the results you want.
Another thing to keep in mind is that this device is not for every shot. It's absolutely great to get some motion into your work, or if you're following a moving subject, but keep in mind that a good fluid head tripod is a much better solution for things that involve rotation. That said, what this unit can do is much better and easier to accomplish than if you were either hand-holding your camera or moving a tripod on a dolly. It goes where you go, and that includes narrow hallways and tight corners.
I would recommend this unit, but be prepared to work on it. The included weights are a good start, but they are not one-size-fits-all. A handful of steel washers to use as weights can be exactly what you need for some cameras.
When i got them, they looked pretty much same from outside (see pics). For the product itself, it seemed slightly better in its finish compared to Sofoto, I tried out the stabilizer looking at a youtube video and both were very easy to setup ( I am a beginner and this is my first stabilizer ).. I tried it out walking around in the home, going up and down the stairs and also running around ... and the stabilizer did really good job. It was swerving a bit, but i guess thats something i need to learn and adapt too.. but there was no noticeable running/walking motion in the video itself.
One small difference with Roxant was that Roxant had 3 different size weights, but Sofoto one had same size 3 weights.
I ended up returning the Roxant, as there was nothing worth the 2.2x cost.
After following available videos for installing the camera and handle, the key is the weights. This turns out to be the easiest way to do this. I would definitely have regular steel washers available in addition to the supplied weights, as this step will allow you to quickly get the OPTIMAL weight.
With handle attached, camera close to centered and the smallest weight on it, while holding the handle in the normal position, rotate the camera down so the main arm is PARALLEL to the floor. Then simply release the camera and see how it rotates back up to the vertical position. The key here is to add or subtract weight until when you release the camera from the 90 degree position, it should rotate back up VERY SLOWLY. Once you have too little weight, it will not fully rotate back up. Too much weight and it will rotate up rather quickly.
For my GoPro Clone, even the smallest provided weight was too heavy, and I ended up with about 8 medium sized steel washers. Once the camera rotates back to the normal position SLOWLY, then you can make minor adjustments to the weight part of the main arm either left, right, up, down, etc. to make sure the camera is exactly LEVEL when you are holding the handle normally. Don't take this step lightly. Perfect weight balance makes this Roxant an amazing gimbal.
OUT OF THE BOX - All in all the design seems to be fine except for two things. The rotational inertia is too low and the friction in the gimbal is too high. It is possible that with some cameras the combinations of mass, the distributions of the mass, and the centre of gravity will be such that it will be OK, but I had some difficulties. I suspect that most of you would too.
HACKED - If you buy this, be prepared to do several things. First, you should go out and buy some large washers to act as smaller weights. If you throw these into the mix, it makes it much easier to balance the steadicam. Secondly, you should oil the gimbal to reduce the friction. Thirdly mount some weights so that they are as far away from the axis (the line that runs from the centre of rotation through the centre of gravity) as possible.

The unit feels great, but I guess I need to get accustomed to the grip on the handle and the way the gimbals turns. Other than that, it feels really well built and comfortable to hold. I'm using a Lumix LX100 on it, so I'm trying to figure out if I can balance with just the lightest weight or if I need to get an extra washer for a little more weight (doing this weekend). The design itself is nice, simple and feels/looks really well built. I kinda wish I had bought the black one now, but I mean it still does the same thing LOL
I've tinkered with it to figure out the balance (even watched those Otis Originals vids on YouTube).
Overall, I'm really glad I made this purchase and I've already oiled the gimble up and even got some locktite to make changing the handle out much easier without having to remove that tiny piece all the time. I've also got it set up with a smallrig barrel nut connector like Otis' for an easier way to do slow pans and tilts. I'm really excited to put this to use in the next coming weeks to do some test shots!
