Exciting New Gear Arrivals: Support Systems
Support systems are getting sleeker, easier to set up, and more universal. Here are a few of the latest ones to make your footage more stable and professional looking:
While not a super-new release, we did get more of these in recently to meet the high demand for this nearly-perfect handheld stabilizer. The Ronin-S is among the strongest gimbals in this size class and sports the following features:
• 8 lb payload, which is enough for any DSLR and even some smaller cinema cameras.
• 23.23″ tall, 11.54″ deep, and 10.08″ wide – provides enough clearance so that the roll axis sits at an angle that allows full and easy access to the back of your camera.
• Built-in 12 hour battery with pass-through capability.
The Zhiyun-Tech Crane 3 LAB Gimbal is the latest flagship support system in Zhiyun’s esteemed lineup of handheld stabilizers. It improves upon the Zhiyun-Tech Crane 2 Gimbal in payload, increased torque, decreased noise, the addition of wireless full HD transmission, and an expansion in overall compatibility.
• 10 lb payload, which is enough for many cinema systems.
• 14.4″ tall, 13″ deep, and 8.07″ wide – smaller overall than the Ronin-S but offers a support handle extending from the back and a shortened main handle for easier low-angle shooting.
• Swappable 7.5 hour batteries.
New Gear from Syrp
We’re now renting the Syrp Magic Carpet PRO 3′ Slider Kit and the Syrp Genie II Motion Control Time Lapse Kit, which are compatible with each other. The Genie II is stronger, faster, and quieter than its predecessor. It has reduced rope-drive friction for reliable vertical motion. The entire kit weights only around 5 lbs and has enough payload to handle most camera setups. The slider has a weighted flywheel and breaking carriage that allows complete control over your sliding motion.
We have even more gear that’s arrived or will be arriving very soon! Check out all of our new gear on our new arrivals page. We also send nice gear and sale announcement emails just once a week. To get the fastest news, please subscribe below!
