The VZ-FP-MINI camera stabilizer is a smaller version of the patented FlowPod series. The key differences are a much lighter body designed to accommodate todays smaller point & shoot cameras as well as small compact DSLR’s such as the Canon T1, T2 and similar size cameras that weight 1.6lbs or less. While the original FlowPod has a monopod that extends all the way to the floor, the FP-Mini camera stabilizer accomplishes this by allowing you to rest the monopod in the included camera support belt providing you with more mobility. The DSLR camera handheld stabilizer will also work some of today’s most popular smart phones*. * with adapter sold separately.
