The Steadicam Pilot HD/SDI Camera Stabilization Sled is an upgrade kit for owners of the Steadicam Merlin Arm & Vest Kits. The Pilot HD/SDI Sled features an SD/HD-SDI monitor and is designed for cameras weighing between 2 and 9 lbs.

At the heart of the stabilizer system is a true 3-axis gimbal for smooth movement up/down, panning and rotation. The 7" monitor is adjustable for viewing and balance. The camera stage features a micro adjustable X-Y stage for fine tuning your balance, while the included counterweights help the Steadicam operator balance the weight of the camera on the rig.
