Lightweight camera stabilizers for people with poor upper body strength??
I'm getting into freelance shooting and am looking to purchase a camera stabilizer to use with a small DSLR like the A7S, GH4, or Canon 5D for hours at a time. I normally just use a tripod, or go handheld, but I know a stabilizer would be extremely useful for fast-paced events like weddings where I will not have time to set up a shot, and will look much better than handheld footage stabilized in post.
The only problem is that I am 5'1'' and am crazy weak, so I have a very hard time using stabilizers like the DJI Ronin or Glidecam. As great as an Easyrig, or something similar, would be, I'm trying to stay under $300. Any suggestions for lightweight, affordable camera stabilizers? And yes, I know the most efficient solution is to simply build my upper body strength. I'm working on it...Thanks!
