You can use the Aviator Camera Stabilizer with professional camera systems weighing from 5 to 15 lb. Incorporating a dual-dynamic arm system, the stabilizer provides vertical travel up to 38" and augmented stability in professional production environments. Also included are 25 precision bearings and 4 stainless-steel springs that allow the dynamic arm system to support the camera systems.
You are offered enhanced comfort and longer duration camera support abilities via a form-fit vest that includes a contoured chest pad, 4-point buckle system for a firm torso grip, and a height adjustable chest plate. High-precision tuning of horizontal balance is possible via a micro-adjustable gear drive stage. You can achieve rapid setup and breakdown of the Aviator Camera Stabilizer using the quick-release dovetail camera plate.
A 3-axis gimbal integrating 6 sets of bearings provides fluid motion and forms a rugged core for the stabilizer. Sled position control and gimbal position adjustments are possible via a comfortable knurled grip. At the base of the sled, is a 7", 16:9 NTSC/PAL monitor that functions as an external viewfinder. You are also provided with a V-lock battery mount. Vertical balance is achieved via the battery and monitor combination acting as a counterweight at the base of the sled with possible fine-tuning by position adjustment.
You can store the Aviator Camera Stabilizer in a custom rolling case that includes form-cut foam inserts that secure the individual components in place, and a telescopic handle and wheels for effortless carry or roll. Additional padded pouches provide options for holding cables, monitors, a tool kit, and other accessories. A training DVD with tips and directions from a professional FlowCam operator is included with the Aviator Camera Stabilizer system to help you get accustomed to the setup and operation of the system.
