    Thinking of getting the Flycam Nano DSLR stabilizer for when I take video on my Canon T3i. Does anyone use this? It's pretty much a Glidecam rip-off for only $150 (compared to $800 +). For a pretty decent stabilizer at $150, what could go wrong. The only cons I've heard so far about this product is the time that it takes to balance it.

    Those stabilizers are pretty much applied physics. You could build your own for around twenty bucks. (cheesy cam or the frugal filmmaker might have some hints).
    I'm using my monopod with the tilt screw unlocked. Set up diagonally, it works pretty well. I shoot with "real" cameras, no DSLR though.

    DSLR Nano

    I think you have heard something very wrong about Flycam DSLR Nano. I have experience of using this stabilizer.

    I am using Flycam DSLR Nano from the last 2 years. It is working very smooth and I generally shoot my videos while m in motion and gives much more professional look without any type of camera shakes and vibration.

    I am happy with it.But u may note that at the initial stage it takes time to balance as we exactly don't know how to handle it. Once you are familiar with it,it goes as smooth as butter.
