This is the first time I have ever used a stabilizer, and so I am still in the process of learning. The stabilizer is solid and well made, easy to handle, and buttons are responsive and pushes down easily. Panning work great once you figure out how to use it. The best way to pan is with a tripod. The weights work great at stabilizing. The motor can be heard stabilizing the camera angle while is use. Overall, this is a great stabilizer that is well made and should improve video footage.
