The Steadicam AERO is designed to be precise, user-friendly, and versatile enough to fly a wide range of cameras for a variety of productions. The AERO is tools-free so you can quickly make adjustments to your Sled in order to suit the shot or your operating preferences.

The AERO™ is a true Steadicam top to bottom. It’s arguably stronger and more capable than any rig in its class, and is certainly a user-friendly choice for beginners. The AERO is also a superb ‘run & gun’ rig for veterans and flat-out stunts. It’s rigid and precise and has all the bells and whistles you're used to.

A lightweight Steadicam, harshly operated for violent moves, yields much more realistic action sequences than handheld!And an excessively-light camera can easily be brought up to inertial snuff with supplied weights added to the proprietary corner-mounts on the stage. That makes AERO a terrific rehearsal rig before you have to lug your heavy metal through those 10minute shots!

In short, the AERO is brilliant – precise, tool-free, super-adjustable and super strong. It has the same center post that is used on the Steadicam Zephyr model sled, and an even more rigid stage, so with the A-30 Arm and Vest your AERO can support camera payloads up to 20 pounds!
