Since 2013 i can say allot of different stabilizer systems have emerged, stabilizer are at everyone's disposal., i am in Europe and i can not find a BnH in sight, can anyone share their experiences and advise on a decent stabilizer and price.

I was looking at the hand held ones then gave up after realizing they worked with GoPro and iPhones, tops a small video camera.

i really like the taller ones with the weight on the bottom but i understand its the gimbal that does the trick, price always matter and i wonder how often one uses a stabilizer, i read older posts where people said they could not hold one for more then a few minutes before passing out.

any ideas in prices ranges between
$80-100 then
$100-200 then
$200-300 ?

i like glydecam, blackbird, X-series - monoCam CF Pro and a few others but i appreciate any advise if its worth getting something that works well, is simple and does not look like anything i can whip up with parts of a bed frame.

I will be watching this thread CapnBooBoo. I'm trying to figure out the a good one for a 70D. It will be a few months or more before I pick one up. I just pick up a Konova K2 slider. Trying to build up my equipment. I would like to be able to get some nice smooth walk around shots.

yeah same here with the 70D, i am even debating on getting rid of the 5d3 because i do more video, but i love the FF :( , i spoke to canon ppl and they doubt a 5 or 6d with FF will ever be sold with the same technology of the 70D, to do that is like selling their high end video cameras for 1 quarter of the price.

Seems like canon competes with their own models, the 70D is like a 7D inside a 60D body but just a drop slower and limited by programing.

This XCam stabilizer is one of the cheapest full function stabilizers available anywhere.

You are correct that it will be hard to hand hold any stabilizer for an hour or more without a wrist support or vest with arm, but those are far above your price point.

If these things went for like 75-100 bucks they would sell out the window

Honestly, if you're looking for quality, save your money and just go with Glidecam. The HD-2000 Pro is your best bet. It's the most well build and durable.
