Revo ST-1000 Overview

The Revo ST-1000 Pro Video Stabilizer is a handheld camera support device designed for shooting smooth, shake-free video. Once mastered, camera operators can use the ST-1000 to create fluid, "floating" camera movements, even when walking or running. The ST-1000 has a max capacity of approximately 4.85 lb, which makes it ideal for HDSLRs and small to midsized camcorders.

The ST-1000 employs a multi-axis gimbal, which isolates the camera from incidental twisting and wobbling motions. The adjustable baseplate features a quick release mounting plate and a bubble level, which can be used for fine tuning the proper balance. A 5-piece counterbalance weight set is also included. The foam padded handle and knurled stabilizer ring support one-handed operation, although two hands are recommended for optimal control.

First huge, almost insurmountable problem: a handheld video stabilizer gimbal gizmo is not easy peasey pie. There is so much you need to do yourself to make it work as intended-- levers to adjust and set, with very wide ranges, that are guaranteed to be, out of the box, nothing at all like how you need them. The variety of cameras it can hold is huge. What have you got? And if you've never seen one of these or tried to adjust one yourself, it can be mystifying, like opening the door to a whole new branch of science. One of the few cases I guess where an actual delivery guy who brought it to you, and helped set it up, would be invaluable. I have faith, though. Basically-- attach the mount so you've centered the weight of the camera, and then add weights and lower them up and down until the platform rests level. Your thumb kind of grabs the control wheel, underneath the base. Since the weight of the thing is counteracted, you can exert a smooth, very subtle and nuanced twist to your thumb to guide the camera through space. Is it really like a bird in flight? Well... you may be thinking of the next step up in these contraptions that are wound with springs and do float in the air. Maybe get one of those next. Some reviewer mentioned that the action is just a little too loose, not enough drag I think the term is. This is true. Undo the side-to-side screws at the handle and wrap some teflon tape four or five times around the block and re-attach it. Remember always, it is truly up to you to be the most fluid camera operator you can be. That said-- this is a GREAT tool for that.

It's a cool little stabilizer. It didn't work too awful well with my Canon 7D mainly because of the weight, but it works great with my GH4! I'm loving this thing now!

It takes awhile to have the steady cam balanced properly. But then it's fine

I would not buy this product again

This gadget does not perform as it is advertised. I tried it with an SLR and a small video camera, but it is hard to control the movement and the shakiness. Personally, I wasted my money.

Stabilizing your camera on a pillow is better than this!

This is my first negative review for a B&H Product. Purchased this based off of the positive reviews I had seen on here. Practiced balancing and working with the unit for 2 months in anticipation of a marketing video shoot, now coming up in a few days. The REVO ST-1000 is worthless and I am mad at myself for purchasing this, especially for thinking I could get great stabilization for such a low price. Nothing but frustration. The screws used to balance the unit have now become stripped after almost 2 months of balancing a PXW-X70 and practicing. Obviously cheaply made. Many times, even after balancing it the best I could, it would go drastically out of balance after doing a practice shot and I would have to start balancing again from scratch. Today I made the executive decision to not use this product for the marketing video shoot and I am now resorting to strapping the camera into a small pillow for stabilization. Practice tests have already proven to look better than using the REVO ST-1000 so buyer beware! Save up to buy a more expensive, reliable stabilization unit in the future.

It is probably me, I can't seem to get the hang of this thing. It keeps on finding its balance and doesnt stay smooth and still. Will keep on trying.

Good starter

I picked up this a couple weeks ago, so I have not used it extensively yet. I gave it 5 stars taking into account the price point. I think it is a good value. The product seems to works well with me moving around. It takes a little getting used to but the motion is smoother in the video. It is flat but the camera (Fuji X-T200) rotates easily left to right. I use my thumb on the ring below the camera. It allows me to control rotation without seeming to affect up down motion. Do not know if this is the correct way or not, but it works. I found it easy to set up. I am using a light camera so that is a plus. Putting my bigger DSLR on it may not work easily. The weights at the bottom work well for ease of choices. I got the weight close, then bent back the bottom part at the pivot point until it balanced up and down. There are small adjustments at the camera mount for left at right, which helped when I had the folding screen on the camera out to the side. Step up was easy, but I had to have patience and focus on once aspect to correct at a time.

After 2 weeks of trying over and over again, spending hours on this, watching YouTube videos, I have come to the conclusion that this product is nearly impossible to balance and operate...

Will this work with a Lumix GX85?
Asked by: Jason Y.
Hi Jason,I use this stabilizer with a Lumix G7, which I believe is relatively the same size/weight as the GX85. This stabilizer will work with your camera, however you may need to play around with the bottom weights on the stabilizer as it is a lighter camera. Though once you find the correct position where your camera is balanced, it works very smoothly, giving very stable footage. Hope this is helpful.

Is it possible to put a Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera on this one with a shotgun microphone on it? I'm also interested to put an iPhone 5 on it Is it suitable for this case too?Thanks for your answer!
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes this is compatible with the Blackmagic Pocket camera and a microphone. However, I would not recommend this for an iPhone. I would recommend B&H # STSIP5G for an iPhone 5 instead.

Asked by: Michael
Having been balanced properly, the Revo ST-1000 Pro Video Stabilizer (B&H# REST1000) with a 4.85 lb. (2.2kg) maximum payload will easily stabilize a Sony HDR-HC5 1080i HDV Camcorder, 2.1 Megapixel CMOS Sensor, 10x Optical/80x Digital Zoom, 2.7" Touch Panel LCD Screen, Carl Zeiss Lens (B&H# SOHDRHC5).

Once stabilized, is it possible to store it and keep the settings? Or do I have to do the adjustments every time I want to shot? (if I keep the same camera body and lens of course). Thanks for your help!
Asked by: Anonymous
It keeps the settings quite well. And needs to, because it is a little fiddly to get set up in the first place (sensitive balance, lots of variables). But once you get the thing set, you can just unscrew the base plate for the camera attachment and it keeps all the rest of the variables the same.

Would anyone recommend this for the Sony HVR-V1U? The camera has a weight of 3.4lbs, but most stabilizers I have seen like this are normally used with DSLRs.
Asked by: Nathan B.
I had purchased this in 2014 for a Canon HDSLR. For me it works fine. You might find it heavy without a hand brace like the Hoodman WristShot Camcorder Support System.

Hello, I have a Nikon DSLR with a 18mm-300mm zoom lens. The DSLR weighs in at 3 pounds 8 1/2 ounces. I've read reviews and the question / answers below. I was wondering what your opinion would be for shooting video with that heavy of a camera using this stabilizer?
Asked by: Richard
I like the stabilizer, but it takes a lot of time to adjust. It's also most suited for a fixed lens such as a 50mm, as if you zoom in or out with a zoom lens you have to start again with the adjustments. I don't think the weight is a problem, but you probably won't like a 18-300mm lens on the stabilizer, especially if it creeps out!

Will this stabilizer work for my canon t3i along with an off-brand wide angle fisheye lens? I will be using it to video skateboarding and skiing
Asked by: Tucker S.
I have only had minimal experience with them, but probably look at one of the glidecams. The gimbal weight being directly underneath may result in less wobble.
