The Varavon Birdycam 2 is the new version of Varavon’s affordable brushless gimbal camera stabiliser. It offers great ergonomics at a very low pricepoint.
Varavon has a history of producing well made and well thought through products for videographers and DSLR shooters. We’ve recently looked at their new Wirecam that used a portion of their gimbal base that is also used in their newest camera stabiliser the Birdycam 2.
The Birdycam 2 seems to tick most boxes a good camera stabiliser should. One of the most important things for many is the fact that it can be operated by a single person due to its simple follow-mode and thumb-joystick control.
While it lacks some of the great features the Letus Helix offers, it is a more affordable and more available option for now.
For those looking for an alternative to the famous Freefly Movi M5 the Varavon Birdycam 2 is looking quite interesting at almost half the price.
It’s available for pre-order for $2375 and should start shipping quite soon: LINK
Korean manufacturer Varavon has introduced many interesting and innovative products since the dawn of DSLR video. Their latest products once again show their dedication to detail and usability. On the Varavon Wirecam they use their great Birdycam Gimbal (more on that later) and put it on a remote controlled wirecam.
The Varavon Wirecam is basically a remote controlled dolly on a wire with the Varavon Birdicam gimbal attached to the bottom to create extremely smooth motion. It is remote controlled by two remotes so to control it properly you need two operators. See the video above for more details.
The Varavon Wirecam will be available in November and cost $7000. More info here: www.varavon.com
