    Solon, waiting for the footage! Well done!

    I'm also wondering if Radian software will be able to support DD systems in the future with a firmware upgrade?

    TFMC, nice mods!

    We were also busy with our second project: A handheld version of our "TimeLock"

    Just testing it in the desert :)

    Development started 5 months ago. Two companies, same idea :)
    Looks very identical though...
    But you might notice the small thumbwheels above the handles - ours can be controlled by the person carrying it.

    Here you go:

    Just a short demo vid we whipped up. Two music videos, shot in and around Dubai, featuring "MotionLock" will be released mid-May and a making-of will follow shortly after...

    This was a quick'n'dirty demo, not done by an experienced steadycam operator... :)

    First of all here's the music video we did in Dubai with our handheld gimbal "MotionLock" and it's air-borne counterpart:



    And then there's a little video we did a couple of days ago, showing more or less raw video:

    How much of that music video was shot on the hand-held version? Also for the aerials did you use a real heli for some shots?

    We used a heli for the car chase scenes, because speed was an issue and we had very little time - the Dubai police could only close down the street we were using for half an hour.
    The hand-held version was used on nearly all ground shots. We could however not use it for the ground car chase scenes because the wind load on the camera at 50-60 was to high.

    Have a look at the making-of: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.604520996234439.1073741829.161403327212877&type=1

    The motors are hand-wound in our workshop and we have our own hardware design...
