Introducing the Jaybilizer HDSLR, a camera stabilizer designed specifically for the Canon 5D mk2
The Jaybilizer HDSLR is a Stedicam Merlin-like camera stabilizer that is optimized for shooting with the new generation of digital SLR cameras that shoot high definition video.
These cameras produce stunning quality with a film-like narrow depth of field and ultra low light capabilities. The downside is that these cameras are unwieldy for shooting video. The Jaybilizer HDSLR solves this problem and allows photographers and cinematographers to do Steadicam-like “flying” shots. The Jaybilizer is constructed of high quality steel and 6061 aluminum, and features a heavy duty steel ball gimbal. The 8″ aluminum counterweight bar also acts as a tripod for easily setting down and storing the Jaybilizer. The best part is that the Jaybilizer HDSLR is an affordable alternative to other expensive stabilizers, costing only a quarter as much as the Steadicam Merlin.
One problem with most camera stabilizers is that it is difficult and time consuming to properly balance a camera. The Jaybilizer HDSLR makes this process much easier with both side to side and forward and backward infinitely adjustable sliding balance plates. The Jaybilizer is optimized for camera and lens combinations that weigh between 1.5 and 4 lbs. For lighter camcorders, there is also the Jaybilizer 3000 which works with camera rigs up to 3 lbs.
Some of the DSLR cameras that the Jaybilizer HDSLR works with include:
The Canon 5DMK2
The Canon 7D
The Nikon D90
The Nkon D5000
The Lumix GH1
The Olympus E-P1
The Pentax K7
The Jaybilizer HDSLR also works well with many small HD camcorders, even with DOF adapters, such as the Canon HV30 and the JAG35 adapter.
