Easy Steady gains support from IDX21 May 2010
Italian camera support manufacturer, Easy Steady, has appointed IDX as its distributor in the UK and Ireland for its stabilisation systems.
It offers three systems for DSLR, video and broadcast cameras as part of its new Lite & Go range: the One, Too and Free (pictured), catering for cameras ranging up to 4.5kg or up to 8.5kg in weight.
The Lite & Go kits come equipped with a lightweight body vest made from Cordura. The aluminium chest plate, connecting the arm to the vest, can be configured for right or left handed use.
The aluminium alloy stabilisation arm uses light or heavy tension springs depending on the weight of the camera. The spring sets are easily changed, while more precise tension adjustments can be made using an Allen key.
The telescopic centre post on the Lite & Go sled rises from 65cm to 135cm. The sled has a friction-free gimbal and comes with a 7-inch LCD monitor, with a single V-Mount battery plate for sled One or a double V-Mount plate for sled Too and Free.
All three kits come in a wheeled case with a C-Stand for docking and balancing the sled when loaded with camera and accessories. Easy Steady accessories include: a tripod adaptor; D-Bracket for low mode shooting; carbon fibre low mode cage; precision balancing donut weights; and camera plates with 15mm rods for attaching third party accessories.
Easy Steady’s prices range from €3,995 to €6,995 for the Lite & Go range. It is also developing a Pro Series that will carry up to 32kg.
