An essential stabiliser for rigs weighing up to 2.3kg, the Steadicam Merlin 2 is suited best for those shooting video with a DSLR-led setup. Ultra-light and ultra-compact, it is rigidly constructed to be used handheld or on the shoulder, allowing you to produce utterly smooth footage even when moving at speed. Its folding calliper hinge allows it to fold away easily but need no readjustment when reopened, letting you get started shooting that much quicker, and the ergonomic handle creates a comfortable grip for long periods.

The rigid camera plate provides a secure mounting for a DSLR camera, one that clears battery doors on most models, and it’s also a quick-release version that lets you quickly swap from stabiliser to tripod. All parts of the stabiliser are stainless steel, aluminium or brass, meaning it’s tough and corrosion-resistant. All this means you can simply relax and concentrate on getting footage that’s smoother than ever before.

All of our equipment is maintained to the highest standards, with regular servicing, and camera sensors are cleaned before each rental. We have 9 locations across the UK where you can arrange to collect your rental equipment, or we can deliver it to your door. We offer special weekend and weekly rates, and you can open a rental account with Wex to maximise how much you get out of our rental services, including 30-day payment terms and no up-front deposit.

We are dedicated to providing award-winning customer service and competitive pricing to all of our customers. Our rental prices are checked and adjusted weekly to ensure that we remain the most competitively priced photographic rental service within the UK. We also offer a price promise to anyone interested in using our service.
