Ans : Yes, you can put a DSLR on it, you can put a variety of cameras as this kit will perfectly work for cameras and gear up to 5kg.
Q : Do the vest and arm help with stabilization?
Ans : Yes it does help, however the most important part of stabilization is first balancing the flycam initially. That would mean placing all items that will be used on the day of shooting (ie, Monitor, Battery, Camera, Lens, Wires, additional mounts, etc) for proper accuracy in the balancing process. It will take some time to correctly balance, but once you have the corret balance of the stabilizer, the arm and vest will be extremely helpful in the final stabilization.
