    xSPINE will let you jump from steadicam back mount, or front mount, to Glink body support system, to easyrig, and many other possibilities coming.
    here is a taste

    I am very eager to learn more about this system. Does anyone have concerns about the system that may be deal breaker. As far as I can see it solves many of the pitfalls of trying to use a gimbal, only issue I can see is perhaps it sticks out a bit at the back and perhaps its liable to get caught in things or scrape off a wall in a tight turn or perhaps it is over engineered and fiddly. It reminds me of the armorman but with more sophistication. The only other high end alternative is the walter classen slingshot which I have seen and been impressed with, although it is an intimidating system for cast to be around I think.

    Kind Regards
    Ian

    There are some great clips of the smoothing effect of the system on face book that give a bit more insight. I am very impressed.

    For sure, my instinct suggests this is the best for smooth operation.

    I wonder is the price difference between the Armor Man 3.0 and the g link worth the extra cash 3k vs 10k
