While there are many camera mounts that can do all of the same things that the Gyrobot and Minigyro do, what sets them apart are the stabilization they provide. Many camera mount stabilizers can be used to mount a camera on a car or provide a smooth and steady walking shot, but the Gyrobot and Minigyro can aid a stable, steady shot from bumpy terrain or roads. The mounts can be used to stabilize camera’s on an ATV, motorcycle or even motocross bike. Bumpy roads are improved because of the Tyler Minigyro and Gyrobot's K-8 gyros, which helps keep your camera shot steady and stable. You can even mount a GoPro for additional footage and get the same shake-free shots as with your larger camera package.
The Gyrobot camera mount stabilizer provides a lightweight yet durable Aluminum and Carbon Fiber construction that allows it to carry up to a hefty 32 lb Camera Package. The kit includes a specially developed nonlinear shock tube and extender that helps eliminate vibration. It also comes with an adjustable hand grip, a tilting camera head, a quick release camera tray and a securing strap. The Gyrobot can even be used as a camera stabilizing mount to get great aerial shots with no installation or FAA approval required! With the shock tube, the Gyrobot weighs in at a light and easy 21 lbs and without the shock tube is weighs an incredible 19 lbs.
Both the Tyler Gyrobot and Minigyro stabilizing camera mount were developed by Nelson Tyler, inventor and designer of more than 40 patented products and longtime Cameraman. In 2009, he was the honored recipient of a Life Time Achievement Award by the Society of Operating Cameramen and has won three Academy Awards for Technical Achievement in the Motion Picture Industry. In 2002, he was honored to be named the first Honorary Member of the Motion Picture Pilots Association. In 2004, he received a Fuji Gold Medal Award for Advancement of the Motion Picture Film Industry for the many contributions he has made towards advancing the technology used to create great motion pictures.
