Daniel Riley has created a new type of stabilised camera gimbal vibration isolator mount which has been designed to be mounted to vehicles and provide a much more stable mounting for cameras and video equipment.
The Cinema Vibration Isolator has been specifically created to help remove vibration from camera gimbals mounted on vehicles and is capable of handling large gimbal systems such as the Ronin or MōVI.
The systems creator Daniel Riley explains a little more :
“The Cinema Vibration Isolator can be used on practically any vehicle (or just about any moving object) with a grip rigging system in place. The discs are essentially 3/8″ cheese plates. It can also be bolted to just about anything for use without a rigging system. For easy automotive shots, a roof rack on any car is a great mounting location. Also, dynamic low camera angle shots can be produced by mounting the Cinema Isolator to large R/C vehicles.
Its wide absorption range allows it to remove high frequency vibrations, while dampening low frequency oscillations. High frequency vibrations can be caused by motors, rotor blades, propellers, and anything that has fast moving parts. These can typically cause rolling shutter or ‘jello’ issues in the video.
Lower frequency vibrations can be cause by a vehicle driving off road, or quick changes in direction. These movements can cause gimbal motors to ‘slip’ and throw off the stabilization. Also, if the camera is hard-mounted to the vehicle, any jerky moment will create huge amounts of stress on the gimbals bearings which causes permanent damage. The Cinema Isolator allows the gimbal to shift around and therefore reduce stress.”
