About the SteadiCam Arm

The New Merlin Arm and Vest makes extended shooting nearly effortless. Now Tiffen introduces the worlds most advanced ultra-light Arm and Vest. Even with heavy cameras, up to seven pounds (3.2kg) with the optional Metal Gimbal your Merlin can now fly for hours without undue fatigue, and preserve all the flexibility and reach of your own arms.

The Merlin Vest is the lightest and thinnest ever made. It can even be worn under a tuxedo jacket and it's designed to fit the entire gamut of human sizes and shapes. For 23 kg eight-year-olds or 150 kg linebackers, the Merlin Vest provides complete comfort and functionality for extended productions and long continuous shots. All adjustments are 'no-tools', including the right-arm/left-arm.

The Merlin Arm is ultra-light and extremely capable. It's a 7/8 scale version of its big brothers, the Flyer, G-50 and G-70 arms. It provides the same legendary performance and flexibility including instant, knob-adjustable control of lifting power for camera payloads between 2.5 and 7 lbs. (1.1 to 3.2 kg) The Merlin Arm also provides enormous vertical lifting range (28" or 71cm) and full iso-elasticity, so you'll need only ounces of force to maintain the highest or lowest lens heights (way above the head to below the waist).

Like its big brothers, the Merlin Arm includes two-axis adjustment of the arm-to-body angle so that people of differing shapes can adjust the lifting angle to their most comfortable posture. Together The Merlin Arm and Vest actually increase your shooting options. You can ease the Merlin back against your body and shoot 'handheld', with both hands on the camera, and fly seamlessly back off the shoulder and continue moving.
