Mo-Syshas updated their “G30” gyro-stabilized remote head. The G30 is a camera rigging designed with an emphasis on quietness, and is known to be a highly cost-effective package with high-precision operation, excellent image stabilization, and simple operability.
The new G30 update incorporates several user-requested upgrades and a fundamental overhaul of the traditional heavy-duty stabilizer remote head. The 45° high-rigidity frame geometry is designed to support camera payloads up to 30kg and eliminate the risk of gimbal lock.
The G30’s balancing process has been further improved with the introduction of an innovative index plunger. This allows each axis to be independently locked off during setup and aids in safe transportation.
With the camera operator in mind, Mo-sys has added multiple 3/8-inch accessory attachment points, as well as engraved measurement marks on all slide components for quick deployment and fine-tuning.
By enlarging the right-side tilt motor through-hole, cable protection is ensured and congestion is reduced, allowing more cables to pass freely through the center. In addition, a wireless control module can be specified as an option, enabling remote control up to 300m.
The G30 is equipped with an intuitive digital display console. With a design inspired by the automotive industry, it features a shallow menu structure, a clear display showing current parameter values, and tactile physical controls. Combined with pan bars, cinewheels, broadcast consoles and more, operators get the visceral responsiveness they need for production.
Mo-Sys CEO Michael Geisler said:
Geisler: The G30 has already earned a reputation as meeting the true creative needs of photographers. In developing this next-generation model of the gyro-stabilized head, we listened to what users wanted, resulting in easier rigging, more intuitive operation, and more accurate and repeatable movement and positioning.
We know cinematographers are always under pressure to shoot fast. That’s why we provide intuitive tools for cinematographers.
