Our Super G is permanently based in Iceland where many films are shots together with our local partner. As well as our light Mini Russian Arm easily shipped by Air Fret to be setup on many local rental cars we are preparing in those occasions.
Our GSS C 520 is now prepared to receive all the Optimo zoom lenses added to the incredible Canon 50-1000mm.

New Gyro stabilized head GSS 512 in XD motion : First head 5 axis less 16 KG and 34 cm
This new mini gyro-stabilized head GSS complements our 520 and 516 versions. On the market, this is the sole head gyro - 5 axis stabilized market in low weight/height.

Intended for applications on light helicopters, we have adapted the 512 on our Cablecam Xfly 3D to provide extraordinary stability on our flying system. Output Meta data is available for special effects and motion control movements.
