Cool video from Saab. Gyro-stabilized camera

Recommended Posts

I recently found this while surfing the web. I thought you might like this. The video is really smooth. Almost no movement from the camera in terms of vibrations what-so-ever.

To pull it off, camera mount maker Gyro-Stabilized Systems built a 5-axis gimbal designed for use at Saab's requested 300 knots (about 345 miles per hour), then slapped a Red Dragon 6K body with a Canon 30-300mm zoom lens inside and mounted the whole rig to a Saab 105 trainer aircraft. The system was used to shoot promotional footage of the Gripen performing a variety of maneuvers, taken up to 2.5G, and used at max zoom with seemingly zero camera shake. The result is buttery smooth extreme fighter jet action that looks almost surreal in its flawlessness and stability.
