The RPS Studio Flo Pod Video Stabilizer is designed for the increasingly popular hybrid DSLRs that do both still and HD video. This vertical handgrip stabilizer is not a "steady-cam" type unit. The design of the RPS Studio FloPod I is to have the camera's weight automatically level in the horizontal axis. The fluid like movement can make video capture smoother.
There are three drag control wheels (bright color) and corresponding lock wheels (black color) on the yoke assembly, 2 on the vertical axis and 1 on the horizontal axis that are to be adjusted for the weight of the camera. Additionally, there is also one lock screw that can lock the vertical axis if desired, allowing the camera to be tilted at will.
Both handles have comfort grips and are adjustable up to 180deg. from the 6 o'clock position to the 12 o'clock position. Included is a hand zoom ring that allows the photographer to adjust the zoom feature of the lens without moving the hands from the handle. The camera plate is adjustable to allow for different weights of cameras and lenses. Finally, the yoke has a removable accessory shoe.
