Aerial filming gives us film and video footage that has the potential to be aesthetically striking. It comes as close to having a “bird's eye view” as humanly possible. For this to happen, planes and helicopters need to be safely fitted with a camera mount stabilizer. Unlike decades past, one's camera stabilizer does not have to be big and bulky. On the contrary, it is possible with the Gyrobot camera stabilizer designed and distributed by Tyler Camera Systems Inc.
Found on the Tyler Camera website at www.tylermount.com, the Gyrobot camera mount stabilizer opens up creative possibilities for filmmakers and videographers working at all budgetary levels. This camera mount stabilizer was especially created to be lightweight and easy to maneuver. The Gyrobot features an aluminum and carbon fiber body, making it 2 pounds lighter than the Minigyro. Both the mounts can be used as a helicopter camera mount. Utilizing four small legs, this innovative camera stabilizer is able to support any camera package even when not in operation.
The Gyrobot never fails to impress even the most experienced camera operator. Rugged, durable and manufactured of sturdy aluminum/carbon fiber, it weighs in at an amazing 19 pounds. With the addition of a Nonlinear Shock Tube, the Gyrobot still only weighs only 21 pounds making it perfect as a helicopter camera mount or on anything that moves. Like its cousin the Minigyro, the Gyrobot is able to hold as much as 32 pounds of camera equipment.
Making the Gyrobot a helicopter camera mount par-excellence, is a 2 KS-8 Kenyon Gyros, an adjustable grip and camera head that tilts as needed to get the best shots. Film and video professionals enjoy the ease in which they can proceed in their daily set-up and break-down procedures. This camera stabilizer has a camera tray that releases quickly and smoothly. There are also tough security straps and a water tight shipping case fitted with wheels.
With such worthwhile equipment, filmmakers can stay within their budget and on schedule. Affixed to helicopters or aircraft, the Gyrobot also works to assist Still Photographers find the images they need. Affordability comes in other ways as well. Because a Gyrobot is so small and lightweight, independent filmmakers can use them without having to apply for permits in most municipalities. Again, this saves time, money and a myriad of headaches produced by unnecessary paperwork.
The Gyrobot is for sale, while the Minigyro is in our worldwide dealer’s rental fleet.
