WORKING WITH GIMBALS IS A STRENUOUS TASK ESPECIALLY WITH HEAVY CAMERA SETUPS
Camera and Gimbal Support Solutions
I’ve been working with handheld gimbals since their early prototype stages where they could barely take DSLRs and a stripped down REDs which didn’t work in the real world.
As gimbals progressed in being able to take heavier camera setups, so did the need for supporting the weight.
Gimbals may be great at stabilisation but without a support rig after a little while, you won’t be.
The Exoskeleton by Exhauss combined with the Helix provides unique movement and is designed for shooting narrative scenes.
Ready Rig is great for filmmakers who need to travel light and backpack in to remote locations.
The Easy Rig with Flowcine Serene is another support system established in the market.
Gimbal and Camera Support Rigs
I advise clients to test every solution out there, only then can they understand the limitations of each system and find the perfect solution.
Here are a few support systems worth testing:
Standard and Cine Exoskeleton with the Helix.
Easy Rig combined with Flowcine Serene.
Klassen Slingshot is a really well engineers solution.
Ready Rig GS ideal for traveling to remote areas on foot.
