"...Truly the next stage in transmitters ...One of many great Steadicam tools that I will now wonder how I lived without."
- A.J., Excerpt from steadicamforum.com
" ...I have now been using my CanaTrans for over three years and I still love it. It has proven to be very reliable, user friendly, and it does not create any distortion or feedback on the Steadicam or any of the other cameras that I have used it with--and the voltage display is a nice bonus for the steadicam monitor/video battery."
