This bundle pairs the FLYCAM Redking Video Camera Stabilizer with the advanced Vista-II Arm & Vest, which features a dual-spring shock-absorbing arm with adjustable elasticity and multiple joints of articulation. The vest is foam-padded and offers a universal fit, adjustable from 28 to 60" waist sizes. It's also height adjustable between the waist and shoulders. The extension arm extends out up to 21", and the Redking stabilizer slides directly onto the mounting post of the arm. The Redking supports up to 7.5 lb loads and allows for stabilized pan, tilt, and roll motion as you move around in different directions. It comes with 16 counterweight plates for balancing your varying camera/accessory loads.
By balancing the pan, tilt, and roll axes around a central handle, the FLYCAM Redking allows you to achieve smooth-moving cinematic shots as you follow your subject. It works to stabilize and keep the camera horizontally balanced as you walk, run, climb stairs, and otherwise move about. The Redking supports up to 15 lb loads, so in most cases you can mount your camera along with a matte box, mic, or other accessories you may need for the shot.
The base on the bottom features 16 thin weight plates that can be used or removed to find the ideal counterbalance for your camera load, in order to ensure optimal stabilization. The base can also be expanded in width to further help with counterbalance. And the center post is height-adjustable telescopically, from 21 to 32", for vertical counterbalance.
The Redking features a quick release camera mounting platform and comes with a quick release camera plate so you can attach/remove your camera efficiently. The camera plate is Manfrotto 501 compatible, so you can also efficiently move your camera between the stabilizer and most tripods or other camera supports.

The Flycam Vista-II Arm and Vest Stabilizer from Proaim features a lightweight, foam-padded vest offering a universal fit, adjustable from 28 to 60" waist sizes. The vest is secured with push-fit buckles and hook-and-loop fastener straps that adjust to your size. Height is also adjustable between the waist and shoulders at the pull of a height-adjustment knob provided on the chest plate. The vest is made of thin aluminum plates, foam, and breathable synthetic fabric. All these features ensure a relatively lightweight and comfortable fit.
The vest and arm combined support up to 33 lb and allow you to highly stabilize your shots for extended periods with nearly eliminated stress on the arms and shoulders. The Vista-II 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, and 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 21". The mounting platform for your load is a 16mm diameter post that supports direct attachment of mechanical gimbals such as the Glidecam 4000. Additionally, 19 and 22mm bushings are included for compatibility with other gimbals and supports.
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 13 lb, and the red springs are for 13 to 33 lb loads.
