Free Arm Brace & Table Clamp Supporting Cameras weighing upto 5kg/11lbs
A Stable Camera For Extended Hours Of Shooting Won’t Be A Problem Anymore!
We understand that maintaining the stability of camera during long hours of shooting is a challenge which usually results in shaky footages. This camera shake draws audiences’ attention to the camera, which breaks the illusion of reality. Feather like gentle movements can’t be achieved by holding the camera in your hands. Flycam Comfort kit being a stabilization system lets you achieve those gentle movements by isolating your body’s motion from your camera. Moreover, it takes the stress off your arms & distributes it equally on your body.
