The Tilta Float System works in conjunction with the DJI RS 2 gimbal to provide a small, compact camera stabilizer system to allow you to accomplish smooth cinematic camera movements with smaller camera setups.

The counterweight-based post provides further stabilization for your setup beyond what the gimbal is already doing to allow for the smoothest possible free flowing camera movement imaginable.

The spring-loaded arm and support vest design puts the weight of the rig onto your torso, allowing for longer operating times before the user gets fatigued. The newly included Lower Back Support provides additional weight distribution ensuring comfortable operation over any duration.

Multiple power options provide more flexibly when powering the RS2. The system can power the RS2 via Gold Mount, V-Mount, TB50, or the RS2 Battery Handle itself via optional accessories.

The Float is compatible with any gimbal that can mount via 1/4″-20 or 3/8″-16 threads and can be powered by a 2 Pin Lemo.

*The Float does not have power outputs other than the 2 Pin Lemo designed for powering the RS2*

Good but needs some fundamental changes that are pretty obvious.

Good 1st generation system from Tilta but some key improvements would make this much better.

First, the support cushion that goes into the small of your back puts so much undo pressure into your lower spine which causes you to not be able to carry the weight for extended periods of time. They really need a shoulder harness of some sort instead to be able to take up the forward load of the system. As it stands now, all the load goes right into your lower back. I have no Idea how they couldn’t catch this when they designed the system and I caught it right on my first day using the system. Huge oversight to say the least since weight and load distribution is key for a camera carrying rig.

Second, they need to have the weight distribution of the batteries on the bottom of the post to be further away from the center of mass. Having the batteries right on the post and not further away, allows for the post to yaw left and right too easily. Just look at any good Steadicam system and you’ll understand why the weight is distributed further away from the post. Having the weight further away allows for the inertia to keep the system from unintentionally yawing.

Third, the counter weight bracket should also come standard with the kit. There is no way to dynamically balance the rig at all angles like the Arri trinity without this swinging weight to offset the balance at different angles.

Forth, I’m a tall guy but the Belt-Vest barely gets around my waist. I’m 6’4” 240 pounds. Maybe I just need to lose a bit of weight. This belt will not fit guys who are bigger with a belly.

And last but not least. Have a quick release system, and dynamic adjustments for the spring arm. Having to constantly trial and error the position of the arm to the belt is such a time killer on set. A tried and true socket block like all the other Steadicam systems the only way to go. Not sure who decided that this slow backwards method was the way forward in the year 2021.

If you guys can sort out these very fundamental details that are a necessity, you’ll have a winning system on your hands.
The quality of parts is absolutely top notch. Now let’s get the fundamentals to match so you can kill the game!

Good performance but murderous on your back

After having used the Tilta Float system for a few days I can report that the support system is very effective in removing the bounce from camera movements that is common when utilizing a gimbal.

The practicality of using this system is however compromised due to the excessive strain that it exerts on the operator’s mid/lower back. This stress relegate the system to only occasional usefulness. I could not imagine using this system for more than 30 to 60 minutes.

In short, a great stabilizer with limited practicality.

Almost there!

I haven't had time to fully test my new Float system yet, but my first impression is that it is generally well made and is a great value for the money. It does have some issues though, speaking from my experience of Steadicam operating since I bought my first Steadicam 30 years ago. Users shouldn't have to self-manufacture a shim to ensure a proper fit between the post and the gimbal. I really wish that Tilta had designed a proper vest that more evenly distributes the load across hips/shoulders/back, rather than just the hips. What Tilta calls a "Tilta Float System Baby Pin Docking Adapter" should be simply called a Balancing Pin Adapter. A proper docking bracket has on one end a yoke and safety pin that will dock and secure the rig in an upright position during breaks, and a balancing pin on the other end. I haven't yet succeeded in getting a 1-2 second roll-back to neutral position (screen facing up) when post is horizontal...it's much faster. Hopefully I'll get that tweaked in time...as I said, I haven't spent much time with it yet. Wish list: rack-and-pinion gear x-y adjustments with scale markings for fine tuning balance. I am finding that it does require a little different skill-set as opposed to traditional Steadicam. All in all, I'm really excited about using this, especially hard mounting it on my modified Segway as seen here: http://www.redzephyrcam.com/Paul_Kalbach_%40_ArtichokePro_presents.html
