This is a NEW Steadicam Merlin Arm & Vest, complete with
all original accessories, packaging and full 1-Year Tiffen Warranty.
USA Product - USA Dealer - USA Warranty
Steadicam Merlin Arm & Vest
Mfg. Product Number:
1-Year Tiffen Warranty - valid in USA
New-in-Box, as you would find at any retail camera store.
The new Merlin Arm and Vest make extended shooting
nearly effortless. Even with heavy cameras the
Merlin can now fly for hours without undue fatigue, and
preserve all the flexibility and reach of the operator’s
The 2.6lb (1.2kg) Merlin Vest is the
lightest and thinnest ever made – it can even be worn
under a tuxedo jacket – and it’s designed to fit the
entire gamut of human sizes and shapes. For 23kg
eight-year-olds or 150kg linebackers, the Merlin Vest
provides complete comfort and functionality for extended
productions and long continuous shots. All adjustments
are ‘no-tools, including the right-arm/left-arm
The Merlin Arm is ultra-light and
extremely capable. It’s a 7/8 scale version of its big
brothers, the Flyer, G-50 and G-70 arms, and provides
the same legendary performance and flexibility including
instant, knob-adjustable control of lifting power for
camera payloads between 2.5 and 7 lbs. (1.1 to 3.2 kg)
The Merlin Arm also provides enormous vertical lifting
range (28” or 71cm) and full ‘iso-elasticity’ so you’ll
need only ounces of force to maintain the highest or
lowest lens heights (from way above the head to below
the waist). Like its big brothers, the Merlin Arm
includes two-axis adjustment of the arm-to-body angle so
that people of differing shapes can adjust the lifting
angle to their most comfortable posture. Together the
Merlin Arm and Vest actually increase your shooting
options. The operator can ease the Merlin back against
the body and shoot ‘handheld’, with both hands on the
camera, and fly seamlessly back off the shoulder and
continue moving. With practice operators can fly the
Merlin one-handed right off of the mounting post during
a shot (docking the arm to the vest with the other hand)
and execute those unique Merlin shot opportunities –
ultra-low- or ultra-high-angles – and then slip it back
onto the arm to continue the shot
