This makes for great camera maneuvering especially with establishing steady footage.

stabilizers, cap or expensive require technique to get smooth footage The same for gimbals Balancing where the tilt is slightly in favor or the weight Thumb and index finger, positioned just under the mount to add every so slightly stabilization from cross winds and steep turns Condition these techniques and this little unit is a charm

Not very stable for a stabilizer

I had high hopes for this, but it is disappointing. it swings wildly with even small movements. It is not really suited for video.

Pretty much worthless

Not enough weight on the bottom end and too much on top to stabilize anything. Even with a GoPro it rocks back and forth with each step or movement. I'm going to try and add some more weight to the bottom and see if that helps. Not worth paying postage to return.

Lowest price

It is the lowest gimbal I have ever had.

Small and lightweight for the price

Purchased this for a Sony a6000 and once we got it out of the box it was way too small and way too light. Returning.

Great little device for stabilization of small point and shoot cameras... Not very good if camera exceeds 1.5 lbs. like most small video cameras. Works well with smart phones, but then again most smart phones has stabilization built in... best for the point and shoot crowd.

needs a box of nails

The gimbal with grip works fine but this is not really a functional stabilizer for my lightweight Canon M-50 (maybe for an iPhone). I affixed a full contractor's box of nails to the weight to get it to stop swinging wildly. For this price and with some significant weight added to the bottom, it's usable. You can't home-build that gimbal grip for $20.

Asked by: John
The gimbal is the difference between the two models. On the V2, the drift has been reduced and there is smoother action. The counterweights are available as replacements directly from the distributer. Currently out of stock, they expect more in 8-10 weeks. [email protected]

question

do you have an iPhone mount or clip that will attach my iPhone 6s to the Axler Robin 05rv2 stabilizer? Thanks!
Asked by: Steve B.
I like this one. It is a little heavy but the iPhone will be secure. I have found out to my regret that spring loaded phone holders are susceptible to being hit and dropping the phone causing damage. RetiCAM Smartphone Tripod Mount with XL Conversion Kit B&H # RECSTM01C.

question

Do Axler Robin o5r v2 work with Canonvideo camera model VIXIA HF G10?
Asked by: John
The Robin 05R has a load capacity of 1.5 pounds and the Vixia G10 weighs 1.2 pounds. You should be able to use the G10 with the Robin 05R, but it will be very close and might be tricky to balance. The Axler Robin 20, B&H # AXRBN20S, would be a better choice for a camcorder like the G10.https://bhpho.to/2uQbbmI

question

Looking for better direction/instruction to balance camera on Stabilizer. Quick-start guide is no help. Can your expert help?
Asked by: Anonymous
Using stabilizers requires a bit of practice and patience. Both will pay great dividends.When I was a Steadicam assistant on multi-million dollar movies, it would take the Steadicam operator an hour to set up the rig. It would take another 30 minutes if there was a major change. And these guys were the best in the business that did it every work day!First you need to set your camera in the exact configuration you plan to use it in. No changing allowed once you start balancing. (This includes something seemingly minor as having the LCD screen out) Place the handle on a post if possible for it will allow you to use two hands. Now place the camera on the stabilizer and center it on the top plate. This may take a few times back and forth and side to side. As you get closer to balance, use smaller and smaller increments. Then you need to set the horizontal balance. You do this by holding the main post horizontal and letting it go. Usually a 2 count drop to vertical is what is desired. To adjust, you raise or lower the handle. For further information, albeit with a different model of Axler, see this manual.http://bit.ly/1Qg0kY5If you need further information, please contact Axler [email protected]<a href= http://gradusgroup.com target= _blank >gradusgroup.com</a> or call 212-594-2353.
