ProAm USA, a manufacturer of production equipment for film and video enthusiasts and professionals, today announced the availability of its brand-new camera stabilizers for DSLR, compact and HD video cameras. Introducing the Autopilot Lite and Autopilot, these stabilizers offer the most bang for your buck, coming in at just $89.99 USD and $189.99 USD, respectively. Both stabilizers come with ProAm USA’s lifetime warranty and 30-day money back guarantee.
“The Autopilot stabilizers are an exciting addition to our growing line of filmmaking equipment,”comments Jonathan Baty, president, ProAm USA. “There is a serious demand for affordable stabilizers assembled in the US. Until now, the only available options are quite expensive, excluding many filmmakers due to budget constraints. Other affordable options sold by overseas companies come with unappealing warranties and little product support. We’re confident that the affordable, high-quality Autopilot stabilizers will bring significant value to filmmakers, allowing them to create beautiful, fluid shots – all backed by the ProAm USA lifetime commitment to our customers.”
Autopilot Lite: Lighten Your Load for the Perfect Continuous Shot
Stabilizing DSLR and compact video cameras couldn’t be simpler with this new design from ProAm USA. The Autopilot Lite is perfect for stabilizing cameras up to five pounds, with a lightweight and natural design that requires very little setup. While typical handheld shooting can often result in shaky, unusable footage, the Autopilot Lite’s smooth socket gimbal absorbs unwanted motion creating fluid, dynamic shots. Its compact, versatile build is designed to go wherever filmmakers go, with detachable support legs that transform the stabilizer into a tripod when you need it. Adjustable steel plate weights make setup a breeze, while the Lite’s high-strength aluminum alloy and powder-coated black finish make this a stylish choice for any videographer on the go.
