Steadicam Merlin Camera Stabilizing System


The Steadicam Merlin Camera Stabilizing System is designed for lightweight cameras between 0.5-5 lbs. It allows you to move your camera smoothly, much like the motion effects you get from traditional dollies, cranes, and larger Steadicams. The 3-axis gimbal handle is ergonomic and suitable for both left-handed and right-handed operators. This is an affordable and travel-friendly stabilization solution that is ideal for beginners and on-the-go projects.


  • • For a cheat sheet on quick configurations for different cameras, please see this Merlin Cookbook. If your camera is not in the Cookboox, set the default stage to "0" before locking the lever. You can also find a product manual under our Manual tab that goes through these details step-by-step. Note that the manual makes reference to a DVD guide. This rental does not come with a DVD.
  • • This is the original Merlin Steadicam and not the Merlin2.
