Imagery from a prototype hand held HD camera positioner, the SHORT FP3, developed by Brownstone Beam dot com. Footage from the first few sessions of operation. This footage is ALL HAND HELD, shot with the SHORT FP3 positioner supporting a Canon 5D MkII, Canon 24-105 lens, by a single operator.
Payload range 2 to 20 pounds, rig-able length from a few feet to longer than you can hold. Payload capacity of this technology allows for use with HD cameras such as RED Epic, Sony's F3, DSLR products such as the Canon 5D MkII and Silicon Imaging's SI-2K cinema camera.
The FP3 may be held in any position in space and moved through any orientation during a shot. This includes 360+ degrees of lateral boom angle, 360+ vertical boom angle, or 360+ roll angle, limited only by the scene space and/or the operator's grip and physique. The device basically "doesn't know what orientation its being held in, and doesn't care." Unlimited shooting orientation.
Additionally, the FP3 prototype uses inertial dampers in an active servo loop to stabilize the support platform mechanically in the event of unsteady support forces or gusty wind, etc. This allows for a higher standard of baseline stability in the support, above and beyond that of traditional/historic hand held means.
SHORT hand held camera positioner provides better shot diversity from a single tool, per the imagination of the operator and their ability to grip and move. Unlimited shooting Orientation, Vertical Camera, Modern and Traditional styles both native - it all adds up to better functionality, a higher tool value. Not just more shots per time, but better shots, more diversity of moves, and more possible permutations for a given shot, with mechanically smooth precision.
More ammo going into post.
