I am the proud owner of the sony fs 700 and use it mainly to film weddings. I'm going to film a promo for a martial arts gym and also make a short doc following a MMA fighter as he prepares for a big fight. I've decided to buy a camera stabiliser which I could also use for weddings. The camera with lens is just over 3KG or 6LBs. I'm looking for something simple that ideally would intergrate with my manfrotto 501 tripod. I'm not looking for a vest or arm with it as I dont envisage using it for long periods at a time. I have read a lot about steadicam ( which may be a little out of my price range), glidecam, Varizoom, Hague (uk) etc
Do you have any ideas/opinions that might point me in the right direction?
