About

This allows the operator to film longer stabilized footage and be a lot more creative.

As a professional photographer or filmmaker you understand the need for a camera stabilizer to get the smooth and stable footage that your production deserves.  

Unfortunately, DSLR cameras and Glidecams are very heavy and require a lot of strength and experience to operate for more than a minute :(

The Eroz Steady Aid works with any DSLR and also with the Glidecam 2000 Pro, Glidecam 4000 Pro, Glidecam HD-1000, Glidecam HD-2000, Glidecam HD-4000 and XR-2000, XR-4000.

Super smooth footage with full control of your camera without electronic parts.

The Story 

I've been always fascinated about steadicams and how they allow the camera to fly around. When I bought my first Glidecam HD2000, I noticed that I was very limited by the time my arm let me shoot usable stabilized footage.

I had to rest every 1-2 mins in between shots. Some times losing a good shot because my arm and back was so stressed.

I tested a full steadicam kit including sled,arm and vest as an upgrade solution, but I realized that wasn't practical for me as a run and gun shooter. The equipment was too big to transport with my other accessories and the set up took a long time even with experience, which wouldn't be a problem if you have always time in a controlled environment.  

The inspiration day

Last year I was helping a friend of mine to film a cinematic wedding. He was using his new Glidecam HD2000 with his canon 6D while I was filming at the opposite side with a canon 5D Mark iii on a monopod. When I looked at him, he looked so tired, and complaining of arm and back pain, then he came to me and said: Renso please help me with the Glidecam and I responded; "sorry", I told you about my chronic wrist condition!

That moment inspired me to take action and start researching about a solution.

Why we need you

We wanted to create the best possible design, but designing prototypes while testing functionality in different sizes and materials for months is not an easy task. We already have a very solid functional prototype ready to be manufactured in the USA, but in order to make it affordable we need to mass produce it to drive prices down.  With your help, we can raise enough money to turn the Eroz Steady Aid project into a reality.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and support.

Schedule

May:  Kickstarter ends. 

June:  Order from suppliers. Start Production. Machine all Eroz Steady Aid Systems.

Risks and challenges

There shouldn't be any major issues. We have tested it many times for what it is designed to do and have made sure it will work and perform as expected. We have the suppliers lined up, but we need to place a bulk order. We want this product to be made in the USA at an affordable cost! We need your help to kickstart this project. By contributing to this kickstarter you will receive our product before anyone else and below retail value. Thanks
