The Steadicam® M-1 is a modular camera stabilizer designed specifically for HD broadcast, feature film, and all demanding camera operating requirements.
The highly adaptive and open architecture of the Steadicam M-1 allows for extreme system configuration and quickly accommodates industry standard cameras and accessories. The core of the Steadicam M-1 is built around rigid, all-aluminum base and stage frames; high modulus of rigidity and indexed carbon fiber telescopic posts; and an ultra-high precision gimbal.
A small fraction of the many features that come standard on the new Steadicam M-1 are three true HD lines, multiple high-amperage power ports top and bottom, and a vernier adjustable tilthead.
The Steadicam® Shadow V® camera stabilizing system, is a low-cost big rig that performs like the Ultra2®. The Shadow V starts with a 25 to 38 inch (64-97cm) telescoping carbon fiber post coupled to the Ultra2® stage—with our patented ± 20º tilt head—and terminating in a new solid base. Outfitted with the Ultra2 Gimbal, 800 nit HD/SDI/SD monitor, dual monitor mounts, frameline generator, and a dual battery mount (12 and 24 volts, either V-Lock or Anton Bauer), the Shadow-V fills the need for a heavy-duty, high-performance, and low-cost rig. Also included is the G-70X Iso-Elastic® Stabilizer Arm, Ultra2 Vest, Docking and Balancing bracket, add-on weights, and the Steadicam logo hard sled case with wheels.
STEADICAM ARCHER 2
The lightweight commercial-quality Steadicam Archer2 has an extensive array of innovative new features to enhance quick set-ups/tear-downs, and 3 standard modes to choose from, is designed to accommodate a wide range of operating needs.
Standard with the new Archer2 is a 12/24V pivoting battery mount, HD ready wiring, 2-section telescopic carbon fiber post, no-tools operation, new “sure grip” gimbal handle, new multi-section light weight Iso-elastic™ G-50x arm, state-of-the-art ergonomically designed LX vest, and “open access” tilting camera mounting stage with optional remote controlled stage motors.
The Archer2 is designed for precise handling, first and foremost. Its narrow 3.2”/8.1cm sled width with yoke mounted monitor and precision adjustable battery assure optimum operational freedom. The sleek lightweight sled design allows it to be kept closer to the operator’s body and results in less fatigue and allows an operator more options, such as maneuvering through tighter spaces.
The Zephyr incorporates the same revolutionary features that previously won the coveted DV Professional Association’s “Best of Show” at NAB for Steadicam.
Style, functionality, flexibility and affordability all wrapped within the Steadicam Zephyr. A new innovative approach to camera stabilizer design, the Steadicam Zephyr has a host of “future proof” features that allow it to be a versatile and an ever-evolving essential tool for camera stabilization needs.
The Steadicam Aero is lightweight and modular for compact storage and easy transportation. The sled is also tool-free for quick adjustments and field maintenance.
Available in two different configurations, the Aero 15 and the Aero 30, the Steadicam Aero is the perfect complement for professional image-makers looking to stabilize and support their equipment.

The Steadicam Steadimate is a brilliant device that allows operators to attach a Steadicam arm and vest to motorized gimbal stabilizers including the DJI Ronin® and Freefly MōVI®. Simply swap out one of the handles of your motorized gimbal mount and replace it with the Steadimate. From there, the Steadimate serves as the handle of your handheld motorized gimbal, but now advantageously equipped with an arm post for attaching a stabilizing arm.
STEADICAM VOLT SYSTEM
The Volt System is a tool that provides Steadicam operators with horizontal stabilization, giving them the ability to easily transition between fully manual and auto assist modes. The Volt System seamlessly integrates into an existing sled, providing greater opportunity for content creation without jeopardizing stability.
The two pound Volt system is unique in that it mounts directly to the gimbal, therefore adding no weight or height to the stage or base. Garrett Brown, Inventor of the Steadicam said “This is the most significant advancement in operating since the invention of the Steadicam over 40 years ago”.
STEADICAM AIR MONOPOD
The Steadicam Air brings versatility back to the monopod. With its air lift spring, the Air makes it easy for professional photographers and cinematographers to raise their heights and never miss a moment. Available in two different configurations, a 25 lb. and a 15 lb. weight capacity, the Air is the perfect complement for professional image-makers looking to stabilize and support their equipment.
The Volt is equipped with a 3-axis gyroscopic stabilizer, allowing you to get extended stable video footage in two modes; “Movie” and “Sport”. Once balanced, the Steadicam Volt’s motorized gimbal (powered by long lasting rechargeable Lithium Ion Batteries) will transition to work manually even if the batteries have run out, unlike any other gyro-stabilized gimbal. Weighing only one pound, the Steadicam Volt provides increased mobility without jeopardizing stability.
