  • No-stabilizer people, pay attention!

    So, we here at SteadyMaker are all about stabilization, as you may have noticed, and this post is no exception...however, there are times where you want to get steady footage, and you don't have access to a stabilizer (I know, gasp, no stabilizer!) Here are some no-stabilizer tips and tricks!

    What can I do without a stabilizer?

    One of the fundamental rules of steady, stable shots, is that your body is a source of stabilization. Your body is always going to provide more stable footage than just holding your camera . Having said that, the more points of contact you can provide, the better. For example, two hands on the camera is always more stable than holding the camera one-handed. However, by the same rule, try tucking your elbows in to the sides of your body, flat against each side, from the shoulder down to the elbow. The shooting position may be a little less convenient but your shots will benefit from extra stability, now that you are using your torso as the center of stability. read more

We introduced some great new items in the Mini TANK package, and these items can also help our SMG clients shoot in different ways. read more

  • After months of hard work and preparation, and some great feedback from some of our worldwide customers, we are proud to launch our latest premium stabilizer, the MINI TANK. This stabilizer comes with encoded motors ensuring better battery life, and more stable shooting, and comes complete with a wireless remote to allow multiple control options, and an extensive top handlebar section for inverted use.

    There are a number of upgrades, improvements and differences between this and our older top of the range stabilizer, the Tank PLUS, which it is designed to replace, and also some similarities and differences between our other current stabilizer, the SMG EXTREME. The following video will give you a little more information about both our current stabilizers in order to decide which is best for you. read more

    ..."What played a big role when I decided to get involved with SteadyMaker, was what they did perfectly well; fostering a relationship with the person that becomes their customer, making us find ways to explain our work, and what we are doing with their products, either how we manage them or even complement and implement them with other products, throughout our work and new techniques, learning more every day." read more

    SteadyMaker Note

    The profile saving that is mentioned at 42 seconds into the video is done via SimpleBGC. This is the interface software to further tweak and adjust the settings/balance of your stabilizer. You can use it via bluetooth with a tablet/computer/phone to communicate with the stabilizer, and also control it remotely, but ONLY USE if you are comfortable with the software and feel confident, or if you really need to adjust your settings, as you can easily make your setup worse, and ALWAYS SAVE the factory settings before doing anything else. read more
