Congrats on the launch of your product Yvon! It takes courage and perseverance. While it's not useful to everybody, I hope you find a market for people who need this kind of support and are willing to pay for a well-made product.

Best of luck!

if that is the thing, every camera with tripod mount can use it..even PnS camera can use it..it is something universal like tripod quick release plate..

actually the camera become unstable because of the battery grip..remove the battery grip will solve the problem..

wow, how um... yeah, I can hand fab one of those from aluminum in my spare time for next to free (scrap metal bins have lots of usable sizes for things like this). It's a nice idea but to call it a game changer or amazing even is a bit of a stretch. Good marketing, but without the follow through of the product it is "just" an attachment.

Thanks to everyone that looked at this post and for your comments (good ot bad). Thousands of you also visited my blogsite and I received hundreds of positive emails. There were some negative comments here and there, but that's always to be expected. All and all, I already have a list of people that understand the necessity and use of this DSLR Stabilizer and are awaiting the start of shipments. I have been publishing my e-books for four years now, and although many have criticized the e-books, thousands of Pentax users have purchased one for their Pentax DSLR model.

We will be reviewing the pricing of the DSLR Stabilizer and might be able to reduce the targeted price. A series of additional modular equipment will be introduced, especially for video filming, at a price much more affordable than what's available on the market today.

I will also release an aluminum, CNC machined, updated version of my front/back focusing charts that has been downloaded tens of thousand times for free on my blogsite. The free charts will still be available for the download as well.

One more note:

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt

Best Regards my Pentax friends,
Yvon Bourque

I also want to wish you the best of luck Yvon. Your Stabilizer is a great idea, obviously well made and its many problem solving features will be very helpfull. You understand that the hurtful comments you recieved on this forum are from people who felt let down. Thats just human nature I guess and you did have them pretty excited. Life goes on. Hope you make some money while providing a product and a service. Thanks.

It's not a bad product, it simply does not live up to the hype.

It looks to me to be very well made, and very useful, but the price seems to be about triple what I would be would be willing to pay for it.

Agreed, especially at the price point. After seeing this I fully intend to make a few, more universal style ones for myself and a few friends with different types of DSLR's. Sure they won't have the nice little bubble level, but IMO thats far from a selling feature on it, it's a nice throw in.

Nice job on the ASCI work.. that is just tedious!
