The Steadicam Merlin is a camcorder stabilizing system for small camcorders. This system utilizes a metal gimbal for smooth camera movement. Designed by Garrett Brown, this model outperforms its predecessor, the Steadicam Jr.
The Merlin system is four times as smooth as the Steadicam Jr., but weighs much less. This gives the Merlin a look as smooth as Hollywood Steadicams.
With a click, the Merlin folds up into a small, compact size--easy to transport.
A three-axis control gimbal is utilized for smooth camera movement.
