The Gyrobot camera stabilizer can meet the challenge. It is a small yet versatile device that works well under many difficult conditions, including moving at high speed and crossing rough terrain. It also allows camera operators to take high-quality images and footage from a plane or helicopter moving through the air.
The Gyrobot from Tyler Camera Mounts is a hand-held piece of equipment that employs 2-KS-8 Kenyon gyros to establish opposing forces in order to prevent vibrations from affecting cameras. It is compatible with cameras weighing up to 32 pounds, including 35 mm and GoPro cameras. This camera stabilizer is unobtrusive enough that many cities and towns will allow camera operators to use it without securing a permit.
Professionals who operate cameras know what they want, and this camera mount stabilizer gives them the freedom to accomplish their goal. The aluminum-and-carbon-fiber body of the Gyrobot weighs just 21 pounds with its nonlinear shock tube and 19 pounds without it.
There is no need to unmount the camera when it is not in use because four small red legs allow it to stay upright. This is a time-saver when the user has to take a break or is trying to place the camera in an optimal position. The mount’s quick-release tray permits smooth and quick operation, as does its adjustable hand grip.
Its securing strap keeps the camera safely in place, and the tilting camera head makes getting tightly angled shots easier. The Gyrobot also gets the job done when panning is required. It is shipped in a watertight case fitted with wheels.
Today, viewers are used to seeing images that have great clarity. An image taken under circumstances where there is no camera vibration will be a crisp and clear. The purpose of Tyler Camera Mounts is to create that kind of environment for camera operators.
The Gyrobot is manufactured by the company Nelson Tyler, a renowned cameraman and designer of camera equipment, founded in 1964. He has received many industry honors. Among them are the Society of Operating Cameramen Life Time Achievement Award and three Academy Awards for Technical Achievement in the Motion Picture Industry.
