Watch the Tutorial for the Ronin M/MX
This will now now open you to a whole new world of options….you can mount your Steadicam arm onto (via a “garfield mount”) a vehicle, atv, golf cart, griptrix, segway, motorcycle……the sky is the limit with our products!Here is a Real world demo shot. Standard “Steadicam” shot….tracking actor and “walk and talk”, used my Nikon D4, 35mm lens, (Ronin in follow mode). Vest and arm by GPI PRO™ Footage straight from camera, no color, no post stabilization (DUH) watch and make your own conclusions and decisions. All I can say no “easyrig” for me…..this is so much better.
Please ignore poor framing….I was in a rush in follow mode with no help and no monitor! Just wanted to give everyone a taste of how it looks and performs. I’ll do some sexier testing when I get a chance to breath!! I do believe perfect situation there would be a remote operator and I just worry about holding headroom etc…
Simply invert your armpost on your arm and secure the pinch bolt and insert the aircraft push pin for ultimate safety and lowmode is unlocked!! It works great and lets you do so much more!
Here is what’s included in the kit. The Steadicam arm adaptor(includes pinch bolt), 4 long allen bolts with shoulder, Aircraft style safety push pin(goes thru the armpost for 100% safety) and the 4 handlebar “blocks”.
