Music video inspired skydiving video with Merlin Steadicam ground footage

I made a DIYS steadicam, based on Youtube instructions, but didn’t use it much because it just took long balancing the darn thing. After scanning through Craigslist for about a week, I found a used professional Merlin Steadicam for about 1/2 price. I mounted the Canon T2i, practice for a few takes, and voila, here it is, nicely supplementing the skydiving footage. Best of all, it takes only a few minutes to balance the camera and since it’s a Merlin, it holds its value pretty much forever.
