The new Oculus stabilized camera gimbal from Cinemoves easily transcends the capabilities of competing systems, and presents new and unique aesthetic opportunities for directors and directors of photography in the motion picture industry.
The Oculus gimbal head revolutionizes the operational envelope of such devices as it is basically free of movement and control restrictions. Faster, smoother, lighter, stronger, quieter and able to look in any direction from any position, Oculus is poised to change the creative concept of the cinematographer and director.
The Klaus Cam, an aerial camera rig designed by Scott Howell of CineMoves, is a three-axis, gyro-stabilized head that hangs on a cable below a helicopter, making it possible to fly a camera through tight and treacherous surroundings that would be dangerous or impossible to navigate with other types of rigs.
The Akela Crane breaks down into highly portable elements and is no stranger to being set up in such remote locations as mountain slopes and cruise ships, hoisted on barges, helicoptered down ravines, placed on a frozen lake in the Yukon and on top of a 29-story building. For optimum flexibility, the Akela Crane breaks down into lengths of 85 feet, 72 feet, 58 feet or 45 feet. The cranes’ extraordinary versatility and portability has helped leverage Akela Unlimited into a position of profitability, growth and competitive advantage.
