Earlier this month Patrick packed a warm pair of socks and took Power Gems ballasts to Canada for the 16th annual February Freeze, hosted by William F White. The weather was a little kinder to us than in previous years, as Power Gems returned to take part in a significantly expanded technology showcase.

Over 1,000 production professionals came along to the William F White Centre on 7 February to test the new production tools available from over 40 of the world’s top vendors, including Power Gems.

After that show in Toronto, Patrick and the gang visited Montreal to call on several of Power Gems customers including Mel’s Cite du Cinema and Cinepool (pictures to the left).

Steadicam Steadimate


The Steadicam Steadimate is a brilliant device that allows operators to attach a Steadicam arm and vest to motorized gimbal stabilizers including the DJI Ronin® and Freefly MōVI®. Simply swap out one of the handles of your motorized gimbal and replace it with the Steadimate. From there, the Steadimate serves as the handle of your motorized gimbal, but now advantageously equipped with an arm post for attaching a stabilizing arm.


The Steadimate gimbal mount comes standard with a post block and balance pin that fit arms with 1⁄2” posts. Operators can purchase accessories that adapt the Steadimate to fit arms with 5/8” and 3⁄4” posts.

The weight capacity for the Steadimate depends on the weight capacity of the motorized gimbal, arm, & vest being used. For operators who already own an arm & vest, the Steadimate can be purchased on its own. For operators in need of a complete kit, Tiffen offers Steadimate Systems in two weight classes:

Steadimate 15 System with the A-15 Arm & Vest [15 lb / 6.8 kg capacity]

Steadimate 30 System with the A-30 Arm & Vest [30 lb / 13.6 kg capacity]

Steadicam Aero


  • The base of the lightweight AERO sled detaches from the post for compact storage and easy transportation.
  • Tool-free sled for easy adjustments and field maintenance.
  • Quick-release camera plate locking system.
  • Multiple battery mount options
  • Available with 7″ 1000 nit monitor
  • 3G HD Compatible
  • Telescoping, 2-section, high modulus carbon fiber post.
