This year I am giving space to my advertisers, the first being Production Gear who sell a fantastic range of accessories including Canon and BlackMagic. This is a stabiliser called BeSteady and not only looks the business but comes in at a far more reasonable cost against it’s competitors. Update : Simon from Production Gear is hoping to have a production model of the BeSteady at their stand at BVE 2014.

The BeSteady One ‘BASIC’ is our advanced 3-Axis, digital stabiliser. Lightweight, durable and responsive. It’s design combines cutting edge, custom electronics and an ultra rigid frame design to create a high performance gimbal capable of incredible stabilisation. Even in the most demanding scenarios.

This is showcased in some pretty awesome operating modes including ‘follow mode’ for single operators (or mixed use), ‘inverted mode’ for creative mounting possibilities and a ‘remote mode’ for remote operation.

Supported cameras:

  • Sony Alfa series
  • Canon 5D
  • Canon 6D
  • Canon 7D
  • Sony NEX-3/-5/-7

Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
