At the BSC Expo Newsshooter.com editor looks at a new rig combination that has the potential to get shots previously only possible with much larger and more expensive equipment. It comprises the new Steadicam Aero 30, the Letus Jr. single axis Helix brushless gimbal and Panasonic’s new GH5.
The setup is made possible by using a smaller camera like the GH5. It has the advantages of Steadicam’s precise control and stabilisation, with the self levelling capabilites of the Letus Helix Jr.
For many shooters this new kind of setup may prove to be a useful alternative, or addition to a brushless gimbal.
