The guys over at iKan sent me over their Flyweight DSLR Shoulder Rig to test out and give a review. You can read my full review here: http://www.vidmuze.com/…

Here we have the “SteadyDSLR” video camera stabilizer. The name is misleading because the rig works with camcorders and DSLRs.
What we like about this stabilizer is that it is a two in one combo rig. The SteadyDSLR is both a “steadicam” and shoulder mount. It works by locking the frame into either position.
We tried a 50mm lens but it was pretty shaky but the footage is nice and smooth with wide angle lenses (10mm-28mm).
The build is solid with a steel frame, aluminum cheese plate and shoulder mount.
The price is right at about $300.
Works with DSLRs
Not as sensitive as the Steadicam Merlin
No option for adding a rail system
