Introducing the Flycam 5500 stabilization system for DV, HDV and DSLR cameras weighing up to 11 lbs.   This Stabilization System is an ingenious system of weights and balances which places the center of gravity within its free-floating, inter-gimbaled handle assembly.  This means when you shake or rock or turn, the camera will remain absolutely steady and provide steady shots. It increases the elegance and clarity of the moving shots thus increasing the quality of the cinematography.

The 5500 Stabilization System is recommended for shooting commercials, industrial work, weddings, documentaries, news, music video’s or feature length motion pictures.
