ProAm USA, a South Carolina-based manufacturer of production equipment for film and video production, has introduced camera stabilizers for DSLR, compact and HD video cameras that break barriers for low cost.
Priced at $89.99 and $189.99, respectively, the stabilizers are ideal for low-budget broadcast and documentary crews. Each comes with a lifetime warranty and 30-day money back guarantee.
“There is a serious demand for affordable stabilizers assembled in the United States,” said Jonathan Baty, president of ProAm USA.
The Autopilot Lite, which weighs three pounds, is used to stabilize cameras up to five pounds, with a lightweight design that requires very little setup. While typical handheld shooting can often result in shaky, unusable footage, the Autopilot Lite’s smooth socket gimbal absorbs unwanted motion creating fluid, dynamic shots.
Its compact build is designed to go anywhere with detachable support legs that transform the stabilizer into a tripod when needed. Adjustable steel plate weights setup quickly. The device’s is made of high-strength aluminum alloy with a powder-coated black finish.
The Autopilot, weighing 4.6 pounds, allows the use of DSLR and HD video cameras up to eight pounds to seemingly float over the most rugged terrain. This new stabilizer keeps outdoor shots smooth and steady thanks to its precision three-axis bearing gimbal. The aluminum frame with powder-coated and anodized finish combines durability, sturdiness and corrosion-resistance.
