Shoulder MountsWe have two shoulder rig systems, designed by Shape and Red Rock, which are both equipped with baseplates and 15mm rods for mounting cameras and accessories for stable handheld use.
Our gimbal stabilizers include the DJI Ronin-S, the DJI RSC 2, and the Zhiyun-Tech Crane 2. These are designed mirrorless and DSLR cameras and utilize motorized 3-axis stabilizers to help you execute smooth cinematic moves. They require a good deal of practice to operate with confidence; we typically recommend that beginners first practice with a monopod.
Learning to operate our Rhino or GlideTrack sliders is the easiest way to add smooth tracking shots to your videos.
