Set up and Safety Notes
The Minigyro Mount requires 3 pin 28 volts DC input right side receptacle. LED power indicator is on left side: Green correct voltage - Red low voltage.
IMPORTANT: The KS-8 "gyros" require 20 minutes spin-up time before use.
IMPORTANT: In extreme hot conditions turn Minigyro off between shots to prevent overheating.
SHOOTING NOTES: For best results do not grip handles to tight. Hold with a firm grip and let any vibrations pass through and onto the hands and arms, and not the mount. If possible, try not to have the mount touch the vehicle. Use the shock tube for extended shot time and heavier camera packages.
Panning too quickly will cause gyros to gimbal lock. You will feel a jolt if this happens. To prevent this adjust panning rate slower. Remember you can also use the mount hand held for walking shots, similar to a Steadicam. If doing longer hand held shots, a sling or Easyrig over the shoulders can help with support of weight distribution.
Tilt camera up or down on Mingyro as needed for comfort depending on angle towards subject. Use black lock arm on left side to lock the tilting unit in place. NOTE: Black lock arm can be d-tented to desired position by pulling arm out and twisting.
