The Merlin 2 comes in a very neatly configured foam lined, semi-soft shelled case. Even at first glance you can tell this is a quality product. All of the structural components are precisely machined aluminum and stainless steel. Plastic and rubberized parts are substantial and mate perfectly, and sparse but well-placed reference marks indicate this Steadicam means business.
The standard package comes with a folded Merlin 2 rig, dovetail plate, one starting and two finishing two-ounce weights, six four-ounce middle weights, lens support bracket, assorted screws & tripod adapter plate.
