Steadicam®
Professional Camera Stabilizing Systems

Steadicam is the rising star in the motion picture and TV industry. It is the camera stabilizing system that was awarded an Oscar and an Emmy and had bagged several other awards like the Deluxe Outstanding Technical Achievement Award of the BANFF Television Festival, the Star 2005 TV Technology Award, the 2006 Cherry Pickers Award and the 2006 CES Innovations Award.

Over the past 30 years, Steadicam has been an indispensable production tool in the entertainment industry. The brain behind Steadicam is Garrett Brown and the birth of Steadicam is a result of collaboration with Tiffen, the veteran leader in photographic filters and lens accessories. Today, Tiffen has a complete range of star quality Steadicam models to grace the red carpet.
 

 

Merlin 2™ 

The Steadicam Merlin 2 is an improved version of its predecessor, with a sleek new black and stainless steel styling, and lets you keep up with the action more easily than ever before!

The Merlin 2 stabilizer lets you fly wherever the scene takes you - up and down steps, indoors and outdoors, through crowds - almost anywhere, with precise, elegant control and ease for memorable, professional "you-were-there" footage. And its quick-release mount lets you instantly swap camera connections between your stabilizer and any tripod.

Its 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 0.23 to 2.2kg.

The Merlin 2 offers a more precise "Folding Caliper" hinge to assure you have the only hand-held that folds but needs no readjustment when reopened!

With the Merlin 2, it’s hard not for videographers to feel like they can perform all the magic they want in an uber-cool stabilizer system.
