About ProMax

This lightweight steady device is easy to operate whilie taking amazing footage. The SteadyTracker UltraLite gives you the ability to shoot subject matter that is impossible to shoot otherwise. Take amazing footage as you walk, run, travel upstairs, or even out of a moving car. Expand the creativity of your production by engaging the viewers when making them a part of the action.

The competition can fly, pan, boom, and tilt but there is no control of the device during these moves. This is what sets the SteadyTracker apart from the others, with the SteadyTracker you can accelerate and decelerate when panning, quickly start/stop, reverse directions while flying, tilt smoothly at the start or end of a boom, or dutch off the axis during a flying move.

The SteadyTrackers have been designed for handheld use, body supported use, and self supported use. When hand held smoothly circle around your subject, dutching, booming, and tilting on the fly, changing angles and framing just like in music videos. You can do chase scenes, go up and down stairs, jump off walls, go over picnic tables, follow people in cars, shoot weddings, receptions, love stories, sports, documentaries, choirs, plays, etc.

When body mounted it rests on your leg letting you zoom and focus with a heads up position with both eyes free to monitor or look for new scenes. Pull it up to your body with your eye against the viewfinder for traditional zooming style shots. Lift it up on your shoulder and shoot over people's heads while looking in the color monitor for perfect framing.

When self supported you can tilt and pan "monopod style" from the floor or the edge of a table. Set it up like a tripod and get in the shot yourself. This lets you completely rest as you think of your next shot.

** 5 Different Shooting Modes **
1-Flying Mode-Smooth motion shots. Tilts, pans & Dutch angles while in motion.
2-Monopod Mode- Static tilts, pans, Dutchs & zooms.
3-Self Supported Mode- Gets locked off shots.
4-Static Body Mounted Modes- Tilts, pans, Dutchs, zooms and ready to fly.
5-Periscope Mode- Static tilts, pans, booms, Dutchs and high flying shots.
LOW MODE shooting available with optional accessory

ProMax Features

  • Top Ten Reason to Purchase a SteadyTracker:
  • 1- Dreamy floating motion shots opens up a new dimension of shooting style.High impact,dramatic,& artistic results always get comments.The 3-axis balance,extended mass,& inertia,takes out unprofessional camera shakes,bumps & wobbles without taking away control.(Balance means nothing without control Lets you smoothly move the camera,just like Pro's
  • 2- Easiest to set up With the twist of one knob the camera is on or off the top of the SteadyTracker. Optional universal stage mounts to tripod.
  • 3- Easiest to Balance Uses sliding adjustments, no weights to mess with. Also easiest to rebalance after adding or removing accessories.
  • 4- Easiest to use Less than 5 second learning curve. Its kind of like aiming a gun, it shoots where you point it, and it stays there without wandering off on its own. It takes less than 7 minutes to set-up, balance and use! (Proven on the included video tape)
  • 5- True One Handed Operation You can even change hands for some really long shots. It has the lowest wrist torque- so no cumbersome wrist supports or body vests are necessary. We will never sell a support vest because of their complexity for set up, balance, use, training requirements, limited performance, lower back and leg strain issues.
  • 6- Most versatile a) Hand held motion machine, level or at angles, even upside down. b) Body supported on leg, or against your body for static shooting, ready to go into motion. c) High shoulder mounted shots even imitates some crane type shots. d) Monopod positioning on floor, chairs, tables or cabinets. Pans and tilts from a static position
  • e) Tripod mode for locked off shots. You can also leave the camera on the SteadyTracker for a convenient place to work the camera while editing or digitizing.
  • 7) Best Design - SteadyTracker Rated #1 by a panel of reviewers at Video Pro Magazine. Aircraft quality all aluminum construction for years of dependable day to day use. Entire unit breaks down to a 24 x 6 x 4 inch package for travel.
  • SteadyTracker Xtreme includes a mount to add accessories, a leveling leg feature in the tripod mode, three year guarantee and may be ordered with a non-dedicated color LCD monitor. Designed and refined by actual "Professional Video Cameramen".
  • 8- 7 minutes or less "set-up, balance, and use guarantee." Balance is so simple that the two step instructions are printed right on the device. Video shows set-up in under three minutes.
  • 9) The most awesome performance. Produces the most dramatic motion shots. Run faster, tilt and Dutch smoother, start and stop quicker. CGX technology yields the least horizon rocking (seasick effect) You can jump off walls, go up and down stairs or over rough terrain, even walk over picnic tables.
  • Works in the wind, or with dangling cables. Optional low cage with tilt feature is available. To sum it up, "Makes my work look more professional and less home made". Kathy Schaeffer - Executive producer of Estates on Video.
  • 10- SteadyTracker gets the shots that get the jobs. Impress your clients, impress your friends, impress yourself. Produce the best camerawork that you are capable.

Does what it claims to do


from Sydney, Australia  -  Hobbyist

The base sometimes falls off because it is quite difficult to tighten the screw that secures the pole.

Steadytracker Ultralite Is The Best!


from Netherlands  -  Business Owner

The Steadytracker Ultralite is used with a HDR-Z1 and PD170 (although the Extreme is recommended) and has surpassed expectations. It is a joy to use, it is easy to use and allows various camerapositions which make my recordings stand out from the rest. What Steadytracker writes on their website is just true, if you are looking for a stabiliser and you don't want to lose control over your camera, buy the Steadytracker.

Questions about this item:

Ed L  I am looking at this item. It seems to be built for camcorders BUT would it work with a DSLR?? (currently D600) BUT WITHOUT a lens on it. I am using the Nikon D600 with just a pinhole body cap, no lens , to shot in movie mode and am looking at various steadicams SKU: PMSTU MFR: 5045
SAM L  As long as it doesn't weigh over 2 lbs or so you should be fine. There is a balance procedure you go through with each camera. One is the crossbar adjustment on the bottom, the other halfway up the pod. Once balanced it operates exactly the same, regardless of what camera you are using.
