The Flycam 5000 is a light weight, hand-held camcorder stabilizing system designed for cameras weighing from 2 to 8 pounds.Our newly designed kit is a stabilization system that works so professionally, you'll see why making a camera glide through the air isn't just a dream, it's reality. With the Flycam 5000, you don't need a tripod or a dolly. The Flycam 5000 Pro will support any camcorder or movie camera weighing up to 10 pounds. It's quick and easy to set up and balance and allows unrestricted booming and unrestricted 360 degree panning. Only 15 inches tall, it's made of precision aluminum. It can also be used as a monopod, no-tools telescoping base, with movable weight discs for dynamic balance. You can easily attach a small LCD monitor to the base monitor mount hole, if needed. It weighs 2.7 pounds without counterbalance discs.

Kit includes:

  • Flycam 5000 Steadicam
  • Body Pod


Flycam 5000:

  • Universal camera base plate
  • Adjustable gimbal
  • Weight holding plate
  • Weights for balancing your camera


  • Wheelbarrow bearing provides rotational control over the camera, so the camera can be easily rotated on its axis
  • Grip swivels left and right from the bolt. You can easily move the whole steadicam up and down.
  • Angle bracket enables grip to move up and down
  • The camera is mounted on one end of the 'post' and the battery and monitor are mounted to the other end

Universal Camera Base Plate:

  • You can slide your camera with base plate of steadicam on both the horizontal and vertical axes, with thumbscrews and a movable camera base plate.
  • The camera platform moves back and forth, and from side to side, to quickly adjust the camera's horizontal balance. By varying the amount of counterweight discs on the base platform you adjust the camera's vertical balance.

Balancing the camera:

  • This stabilizing system contains weights, with the main function of balancing your camera.
  • You can add or remove weights as required.
  • These weights are made of aluminum and are kept in four cups. Weights are attached to the rod with cups and screws.

Handy and easy to use
I am really glad that my order turned out to be what I wanted. I received the package just today and just had to leave review. The hand stabiliser works great with the counter weights. The handle or hand grip feels comfortable. The body pod gives you that extra support that you need when your arm becomes tired of carrying the stabiliser. Overall, a really great buy for me.

product very useful. although assembly instructions were not provided (disappointing but help with assembly could be found on the internet)it was nevertheless reasonably easy to assemble. Once set up and balanced it was able to be used with ease.

Good Price and great support in one kit
I have always wanted to try out handheld stabilisers but read in online reviews that they feel heavy on the arm or if not, they eventually do after 5 hours of filming. This kit was the most affordable kit with a stabiliser and support so went for it.

Steadi as she goes.
I am finding the Flycam 5000 perfect for the task in hand. It is being used to train young (and not so young) film students and enthusiasts along the west coast of Ireland. Time will tell but I have every confidence that the well manufactured and rugged 5000 will withstand the inevitable battering by teenagers "ONLY playing about..." I found the camera quick release mechanism could do with improvements. Otherwise full marks. Full marks also to GripUp for their quick response to all my queries re MY logistical problems.
