Stabileye is a miniature stabilised head that weighs just 3.5 Kgs
It has been designed light so as to comply with the parameters required to fly beneath an aerial platform, so is light enough to be used in the hand without being encumbered with easy rigs or exosuits.
This means that you can move the camera from ground level to full reach during the shot and it is small enough so as to be discreet, very mobile and not in the way of the lighting.
But that's not the only way to wield Stabileye: it's just as at home on a vehicle, a wire rig or even a galloping horse. Its speed of setup and versatility can be relied on, and will give you absolutely perfect stabilised footage every time.
It can accept cameras of a variety of sizes ranging from the Red Weapon to the Alexa Mini.
Stabileye can support a wide range of small zoom and prime lenses right up to the new Panavision 65mm series with amazing results.
Built in wireless capability can see a range of over 200 metres between the head and the controller, and the operator maintains control with proper handwheels and an audio link.
Weight 3.5kg (excluding camera, lens and accessories)
Q: Is Stabileye Waterproof?
A: Stabileye is not a completely waterproof system so its use in rain or rain effects is best avoided. While we will endeavour to do everything in our power to continue shooting in adverse weather conditions we do not guarantee the reliability of the equipment if it is subjected to such exposure.
The use of rain deflectors is not possible at this time so cable work should be carried out after lines have been dried.
Q: What can be attached to the camera package whilst on Stabileye?*
A: Stabileye has been designed to operate as lightly as possible so it is able to comply with CAA regulations and as such the overall performance of the system is compromised if fitted with matte boxes, filter trays and other weight adding items.
Q: What lenses can be used with Stabileye?
A: Stabileye supports a wide range of small zoom and prime lenses right up to the new Panavision 65mm series - with amazing results!
Stabileye accommodates the following:
- ALEXA Mini
