Sam Pat from Picture and Color takes a look at the Varavon Birdycam 2 brushless gimbal camera rig.

Here’s a first look review I put together for the new Varavon Birdycam 2 stabilizer!

I’ve only had a few hours with this new device, but my video should give you a run down on its basic features and three operating modes. There are also a few tests shots later in the review, starting at around 4:45 if you wish to jump right to that.

I can’t say yet whether it can really replace a good Steadicam like the Pilot, but it can certainly do things that the Pilot won’t be able to like hanging out of vehicles.

I hope to have a second, more detailed review put together once I have more shooting time with it. I’d like to compare and contrast the different types of shots you can and cannot do versus a traditional Steadicam. I haven’t seen many direct comparisons of 3 axis systems to Steadicam in the wild.
Any questions, please ask!
