Gyro Stabilized DSLR Mount

Recommended Posts

I've been shooting aerial video using the Canon EOS 5D MkII atop the IGO Indiemount (pat pend), a gyro stabilized camera mount of my own design & manufacture. As anyone shooting HD video knows, it is finicky when it comes to vibration.

The goal was to design a mount that would be as economical as possible and enable me to safely fly my airplane while shooting aerial video. In standard configuration the IGO utilizes (2) Kenyon KS-8 gyros w/inverters & battery packs which allow for up to 3 hrs capture time. The mount also has provision for a 3rd gyro. The mount was a success the very first flight.

"Strip Tease" was shot March 2011 in Las Vegas during a Professional Aerial Photographers Association conference. It was the debut for the IGO Indiemount and first use in the helicopter: [url="http://www.aero-fotografik.com/indexHD3.html"]http://www.aero-foto...m/indexHD3.html[/url]

Strip Tease is over 5 minutes of continuous uncut footage shot from an R44 helicopter. Hope you enjoy viewing it as much as I enjoyed capturing it!

Happy Shooting!
