About the Steadicam 2 Stabiliz

The Steadicam Merlin 2 stabilizer is your essential professional partner. Life doesn't stand still. Now keep up with the action more easily than ever with the new ultra-light, ultra-compact stabilizer system. The Merlin 2 hand-held stabilizer is what you've been waiting for since the dawn of camcorders. The Merlin 2 stabilizer lets you fly wherever the scene takes you-up and down steps, indoors and outside, through crowds-almost anywhere, with precise, elegant control and ease for memorable, professional "you are there" footage. And its quick-release mount lets you instantly swap camera connections between your stabilizer and any tripod.

The design of the Merlin 2 stabilizer significantly reduces fatigue for longer, more elegant shots. The rigidity of its construction permits longer focal lengths than you have ever imagined. The Merlin stabilizer's unique dual extended weight system greatly increases inertial stability. And its counterbalancing weight supports a wide range of DSLR, compact and professional camcorders, point-and-shoot cameras and other video-capture device models weighing from 0.5 to 5 lbs. (0.23 to 2.2 kg).

The Merlin 2 offers a more precise Folding-Caliper hinge to assure you have the only hand-held unit that folds but needs no readjustment when reopened! It is designed to be more rigid and robust through efficient tolerances and materials, allowing for easy folding for travel and storage. The intuitive spring-loaded spar lock instantly folds up and magically disappears up alongside the camera, perfect for shoulder-mounted shooting. And just as quickly, returns precisely for hand-held camera work.
