Our conversation from the NAB 2011 show floor with Camera Motion Research about the Blackbird stabilizer – quite the interesting little device – it seems very easy to balance, tho you will need to practice as well as building up your arm strength. I was able to take just a little bit of time to talk to the guys in the booth and they're very excited about the Blackbird and were very fun to work with. If you have a need to get a steadicam, you should at least contact them to learn more about the Blackbird! I was impressed mainly because it seems so easy to balance – it doesn't require a tool to adjust several screws like I've seen on other devices.
