There are an absolute ton of solutions out on the market these days that range from low to high dollars… but many of us can't afford to buy the big stuff. So we'll continue to show you new ideas and new products that don't break the bank.
I still see plenty of shooters with DSLRs or small camcorders using Glidecams and other tools to get the best shots they can for their customers or film projects.
This one is awesome because it has multiple functions!
