Fantaseal – The $50 DSLR Stabilizer Review

A stabilizer for your DSLR costs a lot of money and you only use it for certain projects. Can you actually use a manual stabilizer for $50 and get smooth footage? We did the test!

Check out our full video with test here:

 

PROS:

  • Does stabilize footage and gives less shocks
  • Good build quality
  • Versatile
  • Cheap
  • Easy to use

CONS:

  • A bit heavy (but that’s positive as well, because helps stabilizing)
  • Not as smooth as an electronic stabilizer

VERDICT:

The Fantaseal stabilizer is great for the price. It’s an awesome piece of hardware and extremely easy to use. This was my first DSLR stabilizer and I’ve always read that stabilizer tend to cost around 4-500$ or more if you really want silky smooth footage. With the Fantaseal you get smooth footage (not silky smooth) for only 50$ and you can use it for your phone, sports camera, with a microphone and a light as well. The grips are soft and durable and create a comfortable grip. Overall this Fantaseal stabilizer makes sure your footage is stable and less shaky than with your hands.

Simon loves gadgets even more than he loves chocolate, and he’s from Belgium… How weird.
