My first steadicam so I do need practice. This piece of kit seems to be of nice quality and the carbon fibre helps with the weight. But I would say probably not that much difference than the aluminium versions.
Opening the box everything is packed nicely. There is a DVD with demonstrations of how to balance the system once you attach your camera. There is a quick release plate so that's nice. There are also various adjusters to help balancing.
There are weights included which weigh around 104g each for the two small ones, and 208g each for the big ones. So all in all there is 624g in weights. Which should be enough for most DSLRs.

Assembly was easy. But balancing wasn't so much. Eventually you will get there and you will know when you've got it because you should be able to spin the camera in a full circle and it will look like its in 'moon gravity'. In other words it will have a slow motions kind of look to it's spin. (Check out my video on Youtube below).

I did some test shots and straight away you can see the difference vs handheld. On my Sony Handycam there really isn't much difference due to Sony's excellent digital stabilizers. But my Nikon DSLR showed great improvement. I admit though I need way more practice in using this as my results were nowhere near professional. But the normal shake when walking was gone and replaced by smooth motions. To pan the camera while using this you have to use just two finger on the neck of the stabilizer and just twist it slightly. As I said it takes practise but I'm sure I'll get it eventually. Happy with it anyways :)

it works, there is a learning curve to be had when you initially get your camera on it, and you'll notice lots of wobble. However please try and use your widest lens whilst shooting on any fly cam steady cam rig, it makes it look much nicer. also the DVD that comes with it, is half useless, its just a person setting up the rig with techno music, if anything its amusing and it did help a little. Just watch a bunch of YouTube videos to get it balanced, believe me when i tell you, you'll get used to the balancing and will have it in 5mins every time. And then just play with it, film everything get used to controlling it, learning how it moves, fly cams aren't easy to master but when you do, they're awesome, add production value to your film or video and this is super cheap

I'm very happy with this stabiliser. The Yelangu S60T has gotten quite a cult reputation for coming from nowhere and doing a very good job at a very low price, as stabilisers go. No problems with build quality either.

Be aware that, unlike motorised gimbals, all stabilisers including this one need to be balanced every time you mount your camera. I found this to be a difficult and arduous task, though I've improved massively with practice. If you're tempted by this product, go and watch some YouTube videos and learn how to balance it. Chances are you'll need them.

Once balanced, however, footage is buttery smooth and the way this thing moves is really quite magical.

This is well made and helps to produce a more stable video quality. It is rather a fiddle though to balance out, so you really need to be patient with it. Once set up is does work well at reducing shake on whatever video camera is mounted on top. We used a digital slr.

It is very adaptable, and would probably fit most digital slr's or other cameras with a tripod fixing.

Absolutely amazing, It is not as great as the pro equipment as GlideCamHD4000 and so on but for the price I am very impressed. Did not think it would work as great as this one does. Needs a lot of practice but easy and quick to get your camera stabilized and very light. Comes with a carry bag which is very helpful. Great for this price range and great to get if you someday want to upgrade to something more expensive, but want to see if you got the skills first.

Tbh, for the money it's not bad at all. It takes a LOT of fiddling around an working out, but when you get it going - it's not a bad little device. Definitely with some added stabilisation in post, you can get some killer shots.

The adjustments on the top are fiddly to use - I've seen other similar units where there is a thumbscrew adjustment rather than friction, which is tricky. The unit overall is nice looking and works as described.

Really good product, this is my first glidecam so never used any of the more expensive ones but it works really well and very easy to setup even for a beginner it is also very sturdy and comes with a bag to carry it around easily.

The instructions left much to be desired. Unclear and poorly translated. But there are a few HowTo YouTube videos out there. Some of the adjustment screws could be improved further, they can be a bit bothersome to adjust. But the product works very well once balanced and the build quality doesn't compromise it's purpose.
Looking forward to a "2.0".
