Package came in 2 weeks to west coast USA. Was packed very nice in a strong thick box. Open the box and there's a carry bag in it with the stabilizer. In the bag you'll have your weights and tool. The stabilizer is all put together already. Balancing is a bit tricky, not hard. First time can take little bit afterwards it'll be fast. This is not for really tiny cameras. I have a sony NEX 5r with a pancake lens. I also got the giottos quick release to add more too weight. On bottom I have 1 weight on each side and separate them as far as possible from the center. First go through balancing forward, backwards-left and right. Make sure the screen in moved in the position you will film, lens cap off. After you get the left right for a small camera you will have a short handle, so move it all the way to closing. Try to get a 2.5-3 second drop test. You can also move the handle up and down to achieve that but don't get too crazy, the handle is in better spot if its on top portion of the pole. Then start walking. With a small camera you will have to work on different walking pattern as it moves more, since it's so small. There is swaying effect as you're walking since its small, especially with bigger lens. So practice your walking, practice the shots you will be taking. In general, This flies really well. You need to have a wide lens, that helps eliminate some swaying and shaking effects. Practice practice practice. Don't expect to become devinsupertramp right when you open the box. I was a bit disappointed at first because I couldn't balance it and fly it and was ready to return it. I got the glidecam hd 1000 to see how it is and tried using both, see if I keep it or return it. Well I liked the Laing better so I ended up giving it a second chance and now it's great! The HD1000 is just so small and it kept swaying to the right. The giottos quick release is a must have. Helps out a lot moving the camera on and off the stabilizer. Also it raises it up a bit so you can open the battery compartment and change it if needed. So, PRO's- price, flies well, very very easy to balance, many weights, carrying bag, good built quality, feels very professional, easy adjusting top plate with measurements, fine adjustment after tightening the screw, can be used with great range of cameras, great costumer service, communication. Cons- I think comparing it to the HD1000, the Laing gimbal has a lot more grip, therefore when you turn the handle the camera will follow as on the hd1000 it's very fluid, you can almost walk around the camera holding the handle and it won't move. Not big deal, sometimes I actually like that. Also as you add a bigger camera and more weights this will not be an issue. Pictures compare it to the Glidecam HD1000. Glidecam is fully extended in both pictures, Laing is Fully collapsed then fully extended. Bottom line- do I recommend it? Yes! For a small camera at this price range this will be the best. Just remember, any camera stabilizer takes lots of practice.

I love this stabilizer. It's perfect and better than Glidecam Signature. I bought it a month ago and then sent it back. I got the Glidecam Signature which was GOOD. Then I said let me get the Laing again that one was pretty good and I'll be saving over $500. So I bought it again and I'm sooo glad I did. I found the spot where it's perfectly balanced. I've been outside flying it and I'm getting some great shots. I am super satisfied with this purchase. If you're considering getting the Glidecam Sig, DON'T! Save the money and go with this. You won't be disappointed.

I've been using a Steadicam Merlin for over 6 years but sold it about 6 months ago to make room for the original Ronin. Unfortunately I didn't keep the Ronin mainly because of my lack of justification to spend $2000, but also because I quickly learned that these 3-axis motorized gimbals do not dampen the walking motion (up/down) the way a Steadicam or Glidecam will. Since $2k was a lot of money and motorized gimbals are kind of a 2 steps forward, 1 step back sort of product I decided to return the Ronin - leaving me without a stabilizer. With mutliple weddings coming up I wanted to get myself another gimbal, but since I couldn't justify spending $1300 on the new Ronin-M that still didn't dampen the vertical motion I decided to look at less expensive options. After a full day of research I decided on the new Laing P-4s, a glidecam /steadicam style gimbal that seems to have features that go beyond the Glidecam HD2000 but at almost 1/2 the price. At just $299 this was a steal and the product is excellent. Once thing I like when using a stabilizer for walking shots is that I actually like a little roll to the footage (slight sway caused by motion) since it really gives the impression of flying. It's more fluid looking compared to today's motorized gimbals. However, I also know that you cannot beat motorized gimbals when doing motion shots from cars, helicopters, boats, etc. Once 4-axis gimbals become affordable I'm sure I'll jump at the chance to purchase one. I also like the glidecam-style design of this counter-balanced gimbal since it allows me to use it as a tripod in a pinch. Compared to the Glidecam the Laing P-4S offers one feature that makes balancing it and using it a better experience. The grip can be raised / lowered vertically in order to change the center of balance. This allows you to quickly make adjustments when swapping lenses without having to change the length of the center bar. I balanced my 5dMKIII with Sigma 20mm F/1.8 lens with the spar collapsed fully, allowing for a small form factor. Yet, when I wanted to use it as a make-shift tripod I quickly extended the carbon-fiber tube and placed it on the floor, something you can't do with a Movi or Ronin. The Laing P-4s includes an easy to tweak quick release plate with markings that make it easy for you to write down where proper front/back balance is for different set ups. Like all glidecam & steadicam rigs it can get heavy. The unit itself isn't too bad, but then you add 3-4 more lbs to the top when you add your camera/lens. While this sounds like a problem, it shouldn't be since most steadicam style shots are quick 10-20 second takes. If you were to take a job where you needed to be on set using a steadicam all day then a vest to help support & control it would be recommended. To sum it up - for $299 this is a great stabilizer for DSLRs and Camcorders.

I love this equipment. It feels very good in the hand, and is made beautifully. Laing makes larger stabilizers for the film industry and the pedigree shows. The fit and finish is top quality. In fact, I'm amazed at the quality for the price. One important advantage this has over other stabilizers is that the sliding plate can be locked with screw tightening - this enables you to make microscopic adjustments to get the thing in perfect balance, by backing off the locking screw a bit so you can move the adjustment knob a bit at a time and observe the result. The seller, Leoking Digital Store, offers fast, attentive service. Although I was informed shipping would take up to 21 days, I got mine in 7 days. They don't include instructions nor was there much padding in the package, but mine arrived unscarred by shipping. It did arrive with a broken screw in one of the locking levers, which I think came from over-tightening at the factory. They had the factory send replacement hardware, which arrived quickly. When I opened the box I found not just the screw but three entire locking levers - now I have spares, which I truly appreciated. Despite the one screw, this is a quality product, sold by people who understand the importance of fast service and over-delivery.

I'll start by saying I really had nothing to compare the Laing P-4S to. I looked at feature of both more and less expensive options. Some of the stabilizers look equally as nice at half the price so my decision was conflicted. I have never uses a stabilize like this before but had read everything available about the different models, what to look for, how to balance and the challenges of using one. It seems like the number one complaint is how hard these are to balance and re-balance with lens changes etc.. Knowing and hearing this I wanted to make sure that whatever I purchased was easy to adjustment. That's primarily why I bought the Laing. The adjusting knobs make this EXTREMELY easy to micro adjust and lock into place once set. Some say stabilizers can takes hours to initially adjust although my first time took literally minutes! It could be because I had read so much on how to do it? I can change lens and re-balance in about 30 seconds. This is really important because any changes made to your camera or lens will require a re-balance. Also, the gimbal height is adjustable on the Laing. I thought this was just a bonus but realized it's a key features and allows you to balance in ways that others wouldn't have been able to. I carry a small light stand in my bag which the P-4S handle fits into and makes balancing incredibly easy and lets me keep the camera in a safe place when I want to set it down. The quality is exceptional in my opinion and small details are well thought out. I knew using any stabilizer would take some practice but didn't realize just how much practice! Some of the videos make it look easy but believe me, these guys are pros! Every time I pick it up I find myself getting better than the last. One video I watched said to practice an hour a day. Your arm will be exhausted after an hour of practice. I've had this now for a few weeks and am just starting to see some decent inconsistent results. As far as price goes, I made my decision based on the features I felt were important. The way I looked at it, if it isn't easy to use it'll probably never come out of the bag. Saving a hundred bucks going less expensive may have created more frustration in the long run. I also did an "oil change" on the gimbal bearing as recommended by many users. There is a video on line that goes through the process. The gimbal comes apart very easily which allows you to completely remove the metal bearing. The video says to wash out the factory lube with water although I used paint thinner. If you use thinner you don't need to take the seals off the bearing like shown in the video. Soak the bearing in thinner, work it around and blow it out with an air compressor. I did this a few times until I got all the thick lube out and the bearing spun freely. You'll be able to feel when the thick lube is completely washed out. Once dry, I lubed it with 3 in 1 oil. It's not at all complicated to do and doesn't take long. I didn't know if it would make a difference but really it did. When I would move the gimbal around, the camera would move slightly and follow with it. With the oil change it no longer does.

GREAT product. Just think of it, regular folks can have a very high quality stabilizer at a really reasonable price. This is really nicely machined. I was truly surprised at the high quality workmanship for such a low price. It will take a little practice to get your setup and find your balance point but once you do, make a little sketch of your setup so that when you reattach your camera at a later date you will be able to fine tune it more quickly.

After reviewing several stablizers I settled on the Laing. It's excellent quality and took less than two weeks to arrive from China. It's very well constructed, and after a little practice I was able to get excellent results. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a stabilizer. Also about half the price of the stedicam.

Great stabilizer for the price compared to other equal products out there. Fairly easy to use - that is, after investing some serious time getting to know balancing this piece of gear. Really recommend this product to stabilize your video. Tested it with the Iphone, small digital cameras and a dslr. [...]
