A bit different selfie stick :)

Smooth moves with the LeViteZer CYRP45 gimbal, the construction makes possible unseen moves with a gimbal and easy reach from floor level to 3 meters with a single move of hand.

360 video gimbal

This one is a bit different gimbal, thinking of it, most LeViteZer gimbals are :)

It handles nicely the weight of 3 Blackmagic Micro cameras and Video assist. To be tested soon with complete setup.

And it takes other 360 video rigs too. Searching for 360 video producers interested to test it, if you are one,
please contact.

The LeViteZer CYRP45 gimbal

The LeViteZer CYRP45 gimbal was developed soon after the BlackMagic Micro Cinema Camera was released. The CYRP45 is a working name for the gimbal and it comes of the unusual axis order Camera-Yaw-Roll-Pitch installed on 45 degree angle.

This kind of installation provides unique freedom of movement, especially when installed on a boom. It is easy to reach from ground to unto 3 m just with a single movement of a hand. Also smooth sideway movements are easy to perform. You really need to test it to fully understand it capabilities.

It is tiny and fits places other gimbals don’t. See your self, some first test videos.

The joystick controls gimbal, providing also control for follow and joystick speeds etc. very use full to have good control at slow panning speeds, but easily to go to fast panning speed if needed. The joystick also controls the camera, providing control for aperture, smooth focus, zoom, ISO, WB, SA... everything that the camera supports. The hole system is powered from a single v-lock battery, the boom is extendable.

There has been lot of interest for this gimbal, it even got to
Cinescopophilia, Thanks

Not quite enough though to make a product of it, it remains available as custom build solution for those who need a special gimbal like it is. If you are interested
please contact.

The body motion and gimbal work

A normal 3 axis gimbal does a great job stabilising pitch, roll and yaw motions. What it does not do is stabilisation of the lateral or up/down motions, so it is important to move smoothly even with a gimbal.

Too often when using a gimbal I am lazy and walk just normally, and the result is never that great, it shows the up and down movement. It is not the gimbals fault but mine. It takes really a lot of concentration and is fatigant to move smoothly, maybe it is just how I am build and I am not that young any more…

Quite surprisingly though I have often noticed that when running quite normally the body motion does not show, but it is just smooth.

This video is random clips from last summer it is easy to see what is mentioned above but also how difficult it is to move smoothly close to static objects.

Have fun practising smooth moves with a gimbal :)
