Check out our latest stabilizer, the MINI TANK. Available NOW in our online store!

Our premium Handheld stabilizer, the SMG EVO has been upgraded to the SMG EXTREME!

Our mission is to deliver the most affordable ready-to-run stabilizers, so we have taken our design and further improved it. Ideal for small-mid range DSLR setups, and some ‘Point and Shoot’ digital cameras. Amongst our improvements are an even easier setup and pre-balancing, more accurate gimbal motors, and removable/replacable/rechargable batteries, so now you can shoot steadier, for longer! Now our stabilizer is free of tools, all pre-balancing can be done with our easy-to-adjust screws for quick and simple setup.

As before, it comes ready to use, in a secure lockable transport case, and additional handlebar attachment for easier operation. Take steady further with SteadyMaker!



This is the updated version of the SMG EVO, with numerous improvements.

High quality CNC designed and cut components ensure quality throughout our product.
Lightweight, designed for greater levels of freedom and stability. Shoot your way, on the move, discreetly.

    Hello! two quick questions:
    1) does this product have yaw, pitch and roll stabilization (The pictures aren’t that obvious to me, I can’t see any cables as the regular gimbal).
    2) Can this product be connected to a computer to fine tune it via Simple BGC?

    Thank you!

      Hi Gregor, Stephen from SteadyMaker here.
      1) Yes, all our gimbals are 3-axis stabilization. The cables are protected, thats why you can’t see them.
      2) Yes, the control boards are AlexMos, and they are tuned via SimpleBGC, via Bluetooth.
      If you have any other questions, feel free to email me at

      Hi there!
      Stephen from SteadyMaker here.
      Worldwide shipping is typically 3-14 days from date of purchase. As a rough estimate, I would say closer to 10 days to your destination. Shipping is trackable, via DHL. If you have any other questions, feel free to email me:

    Hi. I can’t find program for iPhone. Can you send to me link?

    • SteadyMaker February 6, 2017 at 11:42 am · Reply

      Hi there!
      In order to communicate with your iPhone, via bluetooth, you will need software called ‘Rebotnix Gimbal Control’

      To connect via Bluetooth, look for a signal starting with ‘HC’ and the passcode is ‘1234’

      If you have any other questions, drop me an email at ‘’
