BALANCING YOUR EXPECTATIONS

About us

Based in Pinewood Studios specialising in providing camera stabilisation solutions to the film and broadcast industry.

We’ve been at the heart of electronic handheld stabilisation technology since the early modest days of stabilising DSLRs to being the first in the world to stabilise and shoot with the Panavision Millennium XL2 35mm film camera on the Double Helix weighing around 23kg.

The last few years have been spent out in the field with award winning DOPs such as David Higgs BSC, Ed Wild BSC, Gavin Finney BSC, Greig Fraser ASC ACS,  John Conroy ISC, Laurie Rose BSC, Robbie Ryan ISC BSC amongst others who have helped to provide critical feedback for our engineers to refine the design of the Helix & the Exhauss Exoskeleton.

The modularity of the Helix and Exoskeleton allows us to capture shots on tracking vehicles, rickshaws, cranes, dollies, Steadicams, shoulder mounts in a way that you can’t with any other piece of kit available in the industry.

The Double Helix 3 axis stabilised remote head benefits from slip-ring technology allowing a continuous 360º roll across the lens axis and can be remotely controlled by the Klassen wireless wheels.

Here’s a list of some of the cameras configurations we have stabilised and operated:
