  • Hello, guys.

    While going around the internet I stumbled upon this Chinese company called Supamods. And, among all their products, this Steadicam set-up really caught my eye:

    I've been thinking about pulling the trigger on it, but I can't seem to find any reviews of any of their products. The only products that get mention on YouTube, are a Mattebox and a replacement mount for the GoPro Hero.

    Has anyone had any experience with these guys? How are their products? I know you get what you pay for (I mean, that Steadicam kit with vest, arm, gymbal and carrying case, is dirt cheap), but I wouldn't want to purchase a 750 dollar trash bag.

    Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  • It is just shop that also rebrands stuff. Such things are available on ebay if you search.

    Good advice - do not buy unknown steadicam or vest. From cheap options with reputation I suggest Laing.

  • Thanks @Vitaliy_Kiselev

    I'm already checking out the Laing stuff. Still, would love to hear if someone has actually bought anything with the Supamods brand.

  • Supamods brand.

    It is shop brand, if you spend few minutes you'll find same stuff on ebay under different brands.

    With steadicams it is not so easy to spot problems as you can't see how good it works, how good gymbal is and how good all are all joints and overall design.
