Steadicam Merlin 2 Handheld Stabilizer Review




I have one of the Merlins and I have to say that in my opinion it's horrible to try to get it set up exactly right and even then it's a pain. If you take the camera off the Merlin and then want to put it back on it's almost like starting over again even having marked the location on the plate where it is suppose to be placed.

I wish it were easier to use.
