DigInfo TV have covered a nice cost effective alternate to where you would normally use a camera crane with the NHK Balloon Camera. The NHK four axis gyro stabilized balloon camera rig allows you to shoot super smooth aerial footage from 300 metres but is better suited to heights around 50 metres. Smaller cameras around 4kg like Compact Cines and DSLR’s can be used with the tethered NHK Balloon with normal pan, tilt, and zoom functions carried out via a remote control handset.
