Just received the Steadycam Curve. First impression, it is well built and the Gopro is easy to balance. The handle is very small, so if you have big hand, that could be a problem. If you are in Canada, be aware that they ship via UPS... Broker fee are 40$ plus gst. So the unit is not 100$ anymore, but around 165$ Not a very good deal anymore.

Steadycam Curve takes a bit of getting used to but it's well engineered. I 100% agree with FC comments... handle is very small.

Here in Toronto, Ontario... I paid $58 in brokerage fees. Total cost of the Curve with exchange was $168. UPS completely screwed me over. I never would have ordered had I known Tiffen uses UPS for their shipping.
