Today we have a guest post from Richard Allen Crook who shares with us his review of the Jaybilizer stabilizer for HDSLRs

The Jaybilizer HDSLR 2.0 Stabilizer is a simple yet effective stabilizer option for those not needing a full stabilizer rig. The unit is only $249 and you even have the option to build your own unit by following the instructions on the website.
Some of the Positives:

    • Small, light, and easy to use
    • Doesn't require a degree in stabilizer operation
    • Easy to balance with the forward/back and side/side adjustment plates
    • Great low price with DIY option
Some of the Negatives:
    • Gimble movement translates slightly to the unit.  (The more you can move the handle without affecting the unit the better)
    • Bottom of unit tends to bump into forearm
    • Side/side balancing adjustment needs to start further to the left due to DSLRs being rightside-heavy.
Overall for the price and even considering the negatives (that can be worked around), this is a great tool for the DSLR users' toolbox.
