WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE THE ATM-X or LSG-X?
Have you ever thought of or tried just hanging a gyro off of a video
camera and shooting from a car, boat, helicopter or airplane?
You might even consider hanging the camera and gyro assembly from a
bungee to make it easier to support. That's how I got started
doing aerial video and the results were not what I expected, in fact
they were poor. If I was only looking for a few marginally
stabilized very very short clips I might have arrived at my solution.
My hands were the connection to the helicopter and they
transmitted motion to my footage. Please read the next
section to understand why the patented technology of the ATM-X & LSG-X
work so well to stabilize motion.
WHY DO THE ATM-X & LSG-X PRODUCE SUCH
The main concept of the ATM-X & LSG-X Stabilization Systems is that they allows
the vehicle, boat or helicopter to move around the camera which
remains almost stationary due to gyroscopic effects. If you
watch the video of the "SUV Bouncing" (link below) it appears that the
camera and stabilization system are jumping all over the place.
It is really the SUV that is doing most of the moving and the gyros
are helping the camera to minimize any motion. The camera and
gyros are independent of the vehicle and allowed to float in space.
The operator is tweaking the direction of the camera very
gently with their finger tips. They are not solidly gripping the
mount. If the camera is not independent of the
vehicle and floating free it will not remain stable.
The Aerial Exposures ATM-X & LSG-X Stabilization Systems uses patented
technology and are the only low cost mounts available that produces the
kind of footage you would expect from systems costing hundreds of
thousands of dollars. The "SUV Bouncing" video is the most
dramatic demonstration I could record to show The LSG System in action.
