This pretty much. It seems like camera has to operate upside down as well, weird.
Medical strings that should be replaced often? What? You actually expect people to replace those strings? Look like a nightmare to dig into lol
Completely useless for INT work, steadicam arm / serene arm is a way better option
I agree that it doesn't really do anything well, especially when he showed his "jib" shot, I had a chuckle. But I can see that this can be very valuable to some doc shooters who kind of wants one tool to do multiple decent things. The presenter seemed very passionate about the product, I'm sure this will sell
I highly recommend trying any Helix stabilizers first before committing to it - trying as in rent/borrow one, and actually look at the footage. I owned a Helix, and it was a complete nightmare. One of the worst gimbals I have ever used in my life (and I have used them all).
4K is nice but it took them quite a while just to get 4K, I'm afraid it will be a long wait till they accept more modern codec like H.265.
This will cost me close to $30k CDN fully kitted due to currency :[
