Original Flowcine Spring Arm The products by the copycat manufacturer mentioned in this article have not been tested and are in violation with patent laws. They might also be dangerous and come with no support, so we strongly recommend to only get the originals. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused to other people who were not aware of the copycat nature of the device.

For more information on the original product go to flowcine.com The Ultra Core support system for 3-axis gimbal stabilizers takes a massive $900 price cut! Gimbals and stabilizers are becoming commonplace in many filmmakers and videographers kit bags. The results of smooth, flowing motion are pleasing to the eye, but operating a heavy camera-stabilizer setup for long periods of time is hefty work, straining both arm and back muscles. The Ultra Core support system from GiniRigs alleviates the strain on arms, shoulders and back. It has taken a big price cut down from $1499.00 to $579.00! Its recommended maximum load capacity is up to 10kg, enough for a MoVI M10 and production camera. The support system itself is a backpack style support that uses an over-hanging, spring loaded cable to transfer the weight of the camera kit from the arms, shoulders and back, to your core. Distributing the load much more evenly across the body. This allows you to operate the camera and stabilizer with comfort and for a longer period of time. You can also get a FREE Ultra Core Spring Arm ($799.00) when you purchase the whole kit too, which aids in stabilizing the Y-axis. This bundle package would usually come in at over $2000.00, so it’s a good deal, especially if you were left aching from your last video shoot! I’ve never used any of GiniRig’s products before let alone this Ultra Core support. Have you? What are your thoughts on it?Read more
