Ooooooh man swing bikes and a custom made brushless gimbal hand held camera rig from SkyPoint Visuals. It is a first test to boot, still dialing it in they say…

Can you say crackalackin!

Hand Held Gimbal

Using the custom made rig combined with a Nikon D800 camera, PARLINX setup, and SmallHD monitor the Deep Roots Media crew set about testing the hell out of their new toy.

My good friend Sean Haverstock of SkyPoint Visuals, an ariel and handheld stabilization cinematography company, has built one here in Tahoe and we took it for it 1st test drive a couple days ago.

Here are some images we produced with it, as well as some behind the scenes footage. Even though this was our first time operating the gimbal we were able to produce some impressive shots. While not quite perfect yet, Sean is still dialing the gimbal in and figuring out how to get the most stable platform for us to run our cameras on. I’m really impressed with what he has done so far. The running shots with the swing bikes blew my mind. We didn’t add any post-stabilization so that people could see just how good the gimbal is operating.

This new toy has now been added to our arsenal, contact us if you want to play with it!
