Description Technical Specs
The Steadicam Merlin is by far the world’s lightest and most advanced hand-held stabilizer. Ultra-rigid aluminum construction enables stable moving shots at unprecedented focal lengths, and inventor Garrett Brown’s unique Folding-Caliper hinge extends and retracts to balance cameras as light as one-half pound, yet it automatically seeks the compact storage position.  Merlin's design significantly reduces fatigue. So lightweight, it weighs less than a can of soda. With a compact DV, balanced and ready to go, the Merlin weighs about two pounds.

All adjustments are ‘no-tools, including the right-arm/left-arm changeover.

It’s a 7/8 scale version of its big brothers, the Flyer, G-50 and G-70 arms, and provides the same legendary performance and flexibility including instant, knob-adjustable control of lifting power for camera payloads between 2.5 and 7 lbs. (1.1 to 3.2 kg)  The Merlin Arm also provides enormous vertical lifting range (28” or 71cm) and full ‘iso-elasticity’ so you’ll need only ounces of force to maintain the highest or lowest lens heights (from way above the head to below the waist).  Like its big brothers, the Merlin Arm includes two-axis adjustment of the arm-to-body angle so that people of differing shapes can  adjust the lifting an
