Press release


MOVIE ENTHUSIASTS DISCOVER NEW APPLICATION FOR THE STEADICAM MERLIN WITH CANON 5D & 7D DIGITAL SLRS!

Enterprising movie enthusiasts have discovered that Steadicam's entry-level image stabilizing system the Merlin, is the ideal partner for the latest Canon 5D or 7D DSLRs, with their full frame 21 megapixel full frame sensors and 1080 pixel true HD (high definition) movie recording facility.
Although big rig Steadicams are best known in the world of Hollywood feature films or on the touchline at live sporting events, the Merlin can in fact achieve virtually everything it’s stablemate brothers can, albeit with more compact, lightweight cameras weighing up to 5 lbs (2.25 kgs) - such as the Canon 5D or 7D.
With the Merlin/Canon 5D or 7D set-up, you can replicate those smooth continuous shots so beloved by Hollywood directors in your own productions - such as following action on the move (even up and down stairs or on uneven terrain) - in the knowledge that the Merlin’s technologically advanced gimbal will isolate the operator's angular movements.
The Steadicam Merlin has an SRP of just £630.00 ex. VAT and comes with everything to get you going including an interactive DVD, a workbook and an online backup facility.
Further information on the Steadicam Merlin and details of your local specialist reseller can be obtained by contacting UK Distributors Intro 2020 telephone: 01628 799901.
