Steadicam Available In New Cost-Effective M-2 Core Kits

Specially configured and priced to provide operators with an entry point into the Steadicam M-Series ecosystem, the M-2 Core Kits utilize the same lightweight components and modular design that has made the M-2 an industry standard.

All M-Series components and accessories including the Steadicam Volt are designed to be fully compatible, so as an operator’s needs change, their M-2 system can adapt with them.

The two Core M-2 kits share the same standard components, except the M2-VLKIT is compatible with V-Lock and the M2-ABKIT is made for Gold Mount batteries. Both sled versions include the M-2 Flat Top Stage with Dovetail Plate, M-2 Gimbal, 1.58” 2-section Post, Monitor Bracket, and Battery Base. The kits also feature the G-50X Iso-Elastic Arm with Steadicam's exclusive Lift & Ride control as well as the Zephyr Vest with Large Socket Block and the Padded Docking Bracket.

In addition, M-2 Core Kits are easily upgraded with the revolutionary Steadicam Volt active horizon assist technology. This lightweight motor drive measures and assists in holding virtually any tilt or roll angle to maintain a perfectly level horizon — leaving operators free to focus on movement and framing composition. This and other accessories may be added at any time for a future-proof Steadicam system.
