The Steadicam® Pilot® HD Series stabilizer systems are state-of-the-art, lightweight and affordable, designed especially for the modern breed of lightweight cameras from 2 to 9 pounds (0.9 to 4.1kg). Video professionals need add only battery and camera of choice as all other required system components are provided for normal operation. This version of the Pilot HD - the PILOTHDS-VL - is highlighted with the Sled, Standard Vest, Arm, VL-Mount, Backpack transport, and 7" HD/SDI LCD Monitor. 

NOTE: Product shown in image is for illustrative purposes only. Actual product and options may vary in appearance. 

The Steadicam® Pilot® HD stabilizer systems are designed with a lightweight Iso-Elastic™ Arm and ultra low profile vest, lightweight sled with CarbonLite expandable or aluminum fixed post, low mass gimbal and offers advanced features/benefits with low cost for the video professional. The Pilot HD/SDI system comes standard with an Expandable Carbon Fiber post and the Pilot HDMI systems come standard with a Fixed Aluminum post and pass thru HDMI cable. Utilizing a proven low mass gimbal, the operator has the ability to capture the fluid movement that only Steadicam® stabilizers can provide. No-tools precision camera stage establishes a solid base for the camera and facilitates smooth adjustment ease from side to side plus fore and aft.  

NOTE: The optional SteadiStand™ is required for Steadicam® stabilizer balance and operation. 
 
The Iso-Elastic™ Arm is a two-section, articulated, no-tools design that can be adjusted while supporting the camera. With this patented, unique design, the Steadicam® operator can smoothly and effortlessly raise or lower the arm throughout its 28 inch (71cm) boom range. The Iso-Elastic™ arm is also non-reactive – improving vertical stability and control in all operating conditions, from lock-offs to fast running shots over rough terrain. 
 
The Pilot’s® Ultra Lightweight, Low Profile Vest is designed to provide complete comfort and functionality for extended productions and long continuous shots. No-tools adjustments make it easy to adjust on the “fly.” The CarbonLite expandable or Aluminum fixed post and interface to the stage form a solid bond to assure no jitter in the picture as the operator captures those unique scenes. The stage plate is indexed so that the camera can be removed and remounted without the need to readjust the balance.   
 
The sled boasts a true three axis gimbal and is equipped with counter weights for balance and positionable monitor, gimbal and battery mounts. Counterweights are provided for balance. The Pilot® sled compacts down by removing the lower cross tube. Pilot® sleds are available separately also as a convenient upgrade path for owners of Merlin® and Merlin® Arm & Vest kits.
