THE BEST STABILIZATION SYSTEM FOR THE FLYCAM FLOWLINE
The Flycam Placid is a 2-axis Spring Arm that attaches to the end of your Flycam Flowline and assists in getting a Smooth Shot. It stabilizes and smoothens the shots when you are moving or running with the Flowline by eliminating Vibration and Motion Errors. The Flycam Placid pivots around its axis and provides side to side stabilization along with the Vertical Stabilization.
CALIBRATE PRECISELY TO YOUR NEEDS
We designed the Placid System to work perfectly with a varied range of setups. Different elements of the arm, such as the Interchangeable Spring Mechanism and the Easy Adjustment Knob, help you to use the perfect spring and easily adjust its tension to balance the setup. The Placid arm can handle all camera-only or camera & gimbal setups weighing between 5kg/11lbs to 20kg/44lbs.
THE INVESTMENT THAT LASTS
The Placid Arm has been built using high-grade Aluminum Alloy and the Springs used in the Placid are made up of Stainless Steel. This gives the arm strength and stability needed to handle constant tension and stress placed upon it while keeping the overall weight low. The use of high-quality material also guarantees that the arm would work perfectly and smoothly year in and year out.

Quick and Efficient
Shooting on Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 4.6k rigged with matte box, follow focus, large V-mount, lens, shotgun mic onto an Easyrig MiniMax. Installation was easy. Now that is all done everything works great, the different resistance springs are very useful for fine tuning/different camera rig weights. This isn't a steady cam and won't make your shots magically smooth (you'll need a gimbal or steady cam operator for that) but it does make handheld work feel less jittery and a little more natural. I'd compare the end result to having a solid shoulder rig but with much more flexibility for shooting high/low and run and gun. Not to mention having all the weight on your back with the Easyrig meaning you're getting better shots all day. I'm quite tall and found that the line isn't long enough even when fully extended to get shots very low to the ground, so I'll either have to crouch/kneel or dismount the camera from the Easyrig in order to get walking shots on the ground. Then again, if you're under 6ft you might find it more achievable. I'd highly recommend this as an alternative to the much more expensive competitor.
Worked great and best of all the awesome customer service!
