The Jaybilizer 3000 started out as a DIY Merlin-type Steadicam project. I wanted something that was better than the barbell on a stick type of camera stabilizer but not as expensive as a Steadicam Merlin or even a GlideCam 1000. I assembled a couple prototypes, dubbed the JayCam Mk1 and the JayCam Mk2 before coming up with the final design which I am calling the Jaybilzer 3000.
The Jaybilizer 3000 is open source, so you can assemble your own. I've posted the DIY the parts list here: http://jaybilizer.com/products/diy-pa... and this How to assemble a Jabilizer 3000 video. By assembling the stabilizer by yourself, it will only cost you about $100 for parts and you will have the satisfaction of having built it yourself. However, If you don't feel that you want to assemble your own, You can check out the pre-fabricated Jaybilizer HDSLR model here: http://jaybilizer.com/products/jaybil...


As with any camera stabilizer system the Jaybilizer does take some time to initially balance your camera, and getting the smoothest shots does require some practice.
