This FLYCAM bundle provides a comprehensive lightweight stabilization solution with the FLYCAM 5000 Video Camera Stabilizer. The bundle combines the FLYCAM 5000 with the Body Pod low-profile body vest and a cushioned Arm Brace.
The FLYCAM 5000 supports up to 11 lb and the vest distributes the weight to the shoulders and hips. The arm brace additionally provides better grip and control over the stabilizer. When you want to go a more lightweight route and use less gear, the arm brace alone will distribute the weight across your forearm, reducing arm stress and fatigue. The Body Pod vest fits most male and female body types and is adjustable between 34 and 48" waist sizes. The stabilizer's control handle slides directly on top of the all-metal mounting post of the vest, allowing you to operate the stabilizer with more ease.
Included with the stabilizer is a Unico quick release sliding camera platform with a drop-in quick release plate. You can balance your camera with the supplied 16 counterweight plates plus via the sliding camera platform for a more efficient workflow. The included table clamp provides a mounting point for balancing the gimbal as well as setting it down when not in use.

Featuring a three-axis gimbal and foam handgrip, this stabilizer makes it easy to capture professional-looking handheld footage, and it can easily be used for panning, tilting, booming, or running. The stabilizer is made of lightweight aluminum and weighs only 3 lb.
The 5000 stabilizer has a dynamic camera balance platform that allows balancing the camera on its X and Y axes, and it features a toolless 21 to 29" telescoping center post for balancing camera rigs up to 11 lb. The included quick release plate installs on the top plate and has 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 screws to mount a variety of cameras.
A Yoko-2 support handgrip is included, which clamps onto the center post and provides an additional handgrip. Also included are sixteen counterweights that install in four counterweight cups to ensure a perfect balance. A table clamp provides a mounting point for the gimbal for balancing and for storing the balanced, assembled gimbal when not in use.

FLYCAM Arm Brace Support for Select Mechanical Stabilizers
The FLYCAM Arm Brace Support wraps around the arm, securing by hook-and-loop fasteners, and provides a metal post for mounting select mechanical stabilizers. It supports the FLYCAM 3000, 5000, and Nano, as well as many 3rd-party models. Providing cushion comfort while distributing the weight of the stabilizer over your forearm, it reduces arm stress and fatigue and allows for easier and more controlled handling of the stabilizer.
The metal post on the end measures 0.72" in diameter on top and 0.85" on the bottom. The control handle of the stabilizer mounts directly on top of this post. Any handle that meets these diameter measurements is compatible. With your hand over the stabilizer handle, you can then operate the stabilizer with better stability. The handle doesn't need to be secured in any way but rather just slides on from the top. The arm brace can be worn over the left or right arm and fits virtually all arm sizes.
