Hague’s New DSLR Motion Cam
Posted on Aug 11, 2010 by Alex Fice
The DSLR phenomenon has grown at an extraordinary rate recently as more cameramen look to take advantage of the high quality HD movie footage these cameras can capture. Hague Camera Supports have now designed a stabilizer specifically for this range of cameras which will allow the user to further enhance the quality of their productions.
The New Hague DSLR Motion-Cam is a handheld camera stabilizing system that has been specifically designed for DSLR cameras such as the Canon 5D Mk2 and similar. These stills cameras have become extremely popular as alternatives to camcorders due to the high quality recording ability when used in HD Movie Mode, but unfortunately they are difficult to hold, especially when you require moving camera shots. With the DSLR Motion-Cam you can create super smooth “Steadicam type” shots.
The new DSLR Motion-Cam has been designed to cope with different lenses being used, and the fact that on these camera’s the tripod mounting hole is never in the centre of balance, which can make them difficult to balance on some stabilizers. On the new DSLR Motion-Cam Hague have increased the range of movement forward & back, plus extra sideways movement for balance correction.
The crucial part of any stabilizer is the gimble, as it is essential that the handle is totally free moving. The Hague DSLR Motion-Cam’s gimble has a highly polished ball with a nylon socket, plus a radial ball bearing handle ensuring super free movement. This makes it far superior and more effective than any other “ball type” stabilizer on the market.
The stabilizer is supplied with a selection of counterbalance weights to support cameras up to 2kg. Once balanced, forward & back fine trim is achieved by manually moving the camera plate forward or back, and sideways fine trim achieved by hinging the weights on the counterbalance plate from side to side.
