What customers say about "Key Specs"
Flycam HD-3000 Micro Balancing Handheld Steadycam Stabilizer
  • If you have a heavy camera this will be a workout but totally worth the results. I'm able to record very smooth video without the robot like response of a motorized gimbal.
  • Fine tuning knobs are a must. Don't waste your money/time with something that doesn't have knobs
  • I'm using a camcorder, but I'm sure DSLR cameras would pose the same problems, I highly recommend some kind of body vest or arm/wrist brace.
  • It must be a design flaw, probably on the main pole/axis at the handle where the ball bearings join the two. That is the only thing you cannot adjust AND that is what is affected when you make a turn.
  • The table clip is also worthless since you won't use it when your on site and is a waste of time. Don't use it.
  • This creates a huge issue because I balance the camera facing forward and as you rotate the camera, it becomes un-balanced again. You will be rotating the camera all the time.
Flycam 3000 Professional Handheld Camera Steadycam
  • Been using this for a few months now. Took a little bit to get it setup just right, but that's how it goes with these type of stabilizers. For the price of this, you cannot beat it.
  • But it works really well as a stabilizer for a stripped down minimal light weight rig without all your additional camera accesories
  • From the very first time you get it balanced the shots are superb. It is pretty mind blowing how professional your shots look even with practically no experience using a stabilizer.
  • Works! Works well actually. Be sure to use the thing that clamps onto a desk to hold the handle while your balancing the flycam, this saves your arm.
  • Was only able to use at one event. I've used other types of Steadycams and the parts for this Flycam came apart easily.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Flycam HD-3000 Micro Balancing Handheld Steadycam Stabilizer
  • This should not weigh in on the product, that is in fact great for my smaller camera.
  • But it works really well as a stabilizer for a stripped down minimal light weight rig without all your additional camera accesories
  • Love this purchase! Seriously a great bargain. construction is solid. comes with more than enough weights.
  • This thing has some weight to it and you would not be able to carry it for too long, I'd give you about 15 mins. max. It's not so much about upper body strength, most of the weight is on your wrist and forearm.
  • Very good product.Well made.But the weight plus my camera made it difficult for me.

  • Very good product.Well made.But the weight plus my camera made it difficult for me.I must also note that I do have a disability pertaining to my hips.
  • Love this purchase! Seriously a great bargain. construction is solid. comes with more than enough weights.
  • The aluminium construction makes Flycam HD-3000 a robust gear that can withstand years of use.
  • This is the same size as the Glide Cam HD 2000 so its a little misleading. Most importantly I have had a screw fall off and I cant fix it! Just bought this thing.

What customers say about "Features"
Flycam HD-3000 Micro Balancing Handheld Steadycam Stabilizer
  • The weights on the bottom can slide farther from the stem to reduce how it reacts to rotation. This is a bit overkill "duty" wise for a regular dslr, you will barely use any of the weights.
  • Amazing gadget. Comes with multiple weights so that you have the capability to balance your camera.
  • I now use a left hand fitted bicycle handle grip that works perfect. If you have a heavy camera this will be a workout but totally worth the results.
  • Works! Works well actually. Be sure to use the thing that clamps onto a desk to hold the handle while your balancing the flycam, this saves your arm.
  • It's good and works well. Balancing was not an issue, but I do wish that it had a slightly heavier weight tolerance.
  • My camera is on the lighter side of the range, so adding more weights than I already use is pointless, how I position the camera and the stabilizer itself is what will get the job done.

  • It has a nice case, and I am glad it comes with all the weights it does
  • The weights on the bottom can slide farther from the stem to reduce how it reacts to rotation. This is a bit overkill "duty" wise for a regular dslr, you will barely use any of the weights.
  • The build quality is better than expected and I'm using it for every video shoot I do now. I recommend replacing the foam grip with a better one. I now use a left hand fitted bicycle handle grip that works perfect.
  • It's good and works well. Balancing was not an issue, but I do wish that it had a slightly heavier weight tolerance.
  • The grip also slides around a little to freely, an easy tape fix but still lame to have to tape up brand new gear. Using a Canon 7D. I'm sad to say that I regret my purchase.
