Here's an update on the modified Steadicam Smoothee. I mounted a Canon 7D + Tokina 11-16mm lens on top of a QR adapter so I can pull the camera backwards a bit. Works great, and those trimming knobs help to get perfect balance. Not quite the same build, but it's basically a Steadicam Merlin for about 1/5th the price.
