Alanís stabilizer is hardly a bad execution of a good idea. Itís built to the same quality as anything Steve Grimes (or Adam) ever turn out (as are Alanís film holders). I used both the stabilizer and his films holders for my Korona 8x20 and the stabilizer did what it was supposed to do. That said, it is a bit fussy and time consuming to use. Since using ULF is incredibly time consuming anyway, the extra moment is not really noticed. It locks the front and read standards together and if you use a loop of ďsomething,Ē you can support the bellows. It is pricy, but it works just as it says. You can also use any of the suggestions found here. I would not recommend it for every camera, but I would use the stabilizer for older cameras.
