Is the Arri Artemis Trinity the World's Most Advanced Camera Stabilizer?

The Arri Artemis Trinity is a 3-axis camera stabilizer/steadicam that looks like something out of a sci-fi film.

Combining a Steadicam-like vest/sled configuration with a gimbal that offers pan and tilt controls, along with locked horizons and self-balancing features, the Trinity offers seamless low-to-high transitions (unlike traditional steadicam rigs that have a low mode and a high mode but can't transition between the two during the course of a shot).

The Artemis Maxima can stabilize up to 66 lbs (!) and offers a variety of control schemes. Long in development and previously Sachtler-branded products, the Trinity and Maxima were acquired by Arri and will be released soon, with pre-orders opening in May and shipping to customers expected in the June/July timeframe.

I think this type of stabiliser has been in the market since 2009 when I first saw it through this guys at MK-V:

You voted '+1'.

The "Alien Revolution" from MKV is roll axis only. It also costs more than twice the price of the Trinity, additionally the Alien Revolution (or short, AR) is heavier and the post much longer, weight capacity is lower. The AR has a monitor at the traditional spot with a motorized leveling system.

Approx 30.000 € for Trinity vs. 70.000 € for AR (both without Arm and Vest and everything else needed to get it running...)
