The photographic and development team at Arculus based in New Zealand, have created a new advanced camera stabilisation system called the Onyx which offers a new way to “use, stabilise and protect” your camera. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the lightweight protective system which has been designed primarily for usability.
Onyx has this week launched via Kickstarter with the aim of raising just over £50,000 in the next 28 days. With early bird pledges available from £1,334 the system includes counterweight battery packs, battery charger, extra counterweights for precision balance and camera mounting plate. “ONYX is the first additively manufactured and protective three-axis camera gimbal. Its revolutionary new design, advanced materials, and manufacturing techniques allow it to be incredibly lightweight, intuitive to use and helps protect your camera. “
“Weight is a critical component of handheld camera movement. The skeleton is laser sintered aerospace grade titanium alloy which is surrounded by a carbon fibre skin. Every gram of weight has been calculated to provide maximum strength and structural integrity. So it can be operated for longer, go further and capture shots nobody else is willing to get. “For more information and full specifications on the Onyx jump over to the official Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign page by following the link below.
