FLYCAM Galaxy Overview

The FLYCAM Galaxy Arm and Vest Stabilizer features a lightweight, foam-padded vest offering a universal fit. The waist size is adjustable between 28 and 60", and the chest size from 38 to 52". This is done with hook-and-loop fastener straps, and the vest is secured with push-fit buckles. Height is also adjustable between the waist and shoulders at the pull of a height-adjustment pin provided on the chest plate. The vest is made of thin aluminum plates and breathable synthetic fabric. All these features ensure a relatively lightweight and comfortable fit.

The vest and arm combined support up to 22 lb and allow you to highly stabilize your shots for extended periods with nearly eliminated stress on the arms and shoulders. The Galaxy Stabilizer enables you to follow your subject in just about any scenario. You can walk, run, or climb stairs, and much more, achieving consistently smooth cinematic shots while your hips/legs/body absorb the weight of the load, leaving your hands free to focus on the camera angle.

The shock-absorbing arm has multiple joints of articulation and features a dual-spring design. The joints and springs are what stabilize the load by isolating shake and vibration. Furthermore, the elasticity of the springs is adjustable via a knob for different shooting conditions. The arm securely attaches to the vest on one end and extends out a maximum length of 18". The mounting platform for your load is a 16mm diameter post that supports direct attachment of mechanical gimbals such as the FLYCAM Redking and Glidecam 4000. Additionally, 19 and 22mm bushings are included for compatibility with other gimbals and supports. However, you can also mount motorized gimbals and various other camera supports by incorporating adapters like the GyroVu Universal Stabilizer Arm Post Adapter.

Two sets of tension springs are supplied with the arm for different weight capacities, and they're color-coded on the ends to make them distinguishable from one another. The blue springs are for loads weighing 4.4 to 11 lb, and the red springs are for 11 to 22 lb loads.

Amazing toy

excellent quality vest and arm. It is heavy but very safe to use. I already used the kit with the Flycam 300 camera stabilizer, my blackmagic pocket 4k and my sigma 50-100mm, that is, a kit of about 5 or 6 kilos and it feels smooth and manageable. I am very happy with the purchase

This is exactly what I expected for a stedicam priced so low. Its mediocre quality, but it works for the most part. Although if you want something good, just spend more money and get the real thing.

Exactly what I expected!

I got this to extend my use of my Flycam Redking, and it's done exactly that! After making the adjustments this vest is surprisingly comfortable to wear. I was able to use it for 6 hrs, and kinda didn't want to take it off after the shoot. The tension system on the arms is easy to use and fine tune. Haven't had to swap the springs, but that seems easy enough. Overall this vest is great for stabilizers and makes the process simple, no more cranked wrists! This rig also seems capable of supporting the listed weights with no issue. The heaviest ive gone so far has been 14 lbs 10 oz/ ~6.6 kg , and it worked well with the standard springs. There is no box/bag for the vest, so its a tad annoying until you can find a spot for it. For the price point this rig is an effective tool that might lack some features, but will still perform the job well!

I emailed to find out why vest showed in stock but was sent an email saying it was on back order, but shortly after, miraculously it was in stock ready to be shipped, and you know what i thought to myself? I HOPE THEY ARE NOT SENDING ME A USED ONE!! AND THATS EXACTLY WHAT B &H DID!!!! I ordered a new Galaxy stabillzer vest at 29.9 perecnt interest for $337 BUT THEY GAVE ME A USED ONE THAT HAS A VALUE OF $199, Scratches on the buckles, vest and button indentations all over the foam padding that rests against chest. look at the pics.

Horrible

This thing flops everywhere, it doesn't have a dampening system for the arm. Didn't have any instructions. So everything is a guessing game. The neck is extremely uncomortable.

Might end up returning it. Parts falling off within minutes

The vest and arm do exactly what they say they will, the problem is the overall quality of the finish. I just received the item and within minutes of using it 2 of the rubber stoppers meant to prevent the arm from having metal on metal contact have fallen off. Upon closer inspection it's clear that either cheap or old glue were used to attach these. Total fail. Without the rubber pieces you constantly have metal on metal contact which is loud and harsh. Not sure I will end up keeping this unless there is a more permanent solution.

Is the payload of 22 pounds total payload for the arm/vest? So if my camera rig is 12 pounds and my stabilizer 6-7 pounds, I will be flying 18-19 pounds. Am I good?
Asked by: Scott
Yes, the total capacity is 22 pounds. If you are in the 18-19 pound range including your stabilizer this should work fine.

would this work for shooting still images? My wrists and arms get very tired during shoots and I am wondering is this could be a solution.
Asked by: Connie
We recommend using a tripod or monopod instead, since you would still need to hold the camera while it's mounted on the arm. This is just to help relieve some of the weight for bigger video camera rigs.

You would need to add the GyroVu Universal Stabilizer Arm Post Adapter for DJI Ronin-S, BH #GYGVRSUAP. This will give you a 1/4"-20 screw to attach a stabilizer with a 1/4"-20 threading. https://bhpho.to/37xwb0y
