Many new brushless motor gimbal stabilizers have since come onto the market – but the new Comodo Orbit is truly unique because it is completely mechanical. All-mechanical means it has no motors or electronics to add complexity and weight, nor does it take a long time to balance and set up.
A brilliant aspect of the design is the twin grips. Two pairs of grips make handing the device from one operator to another quite simple, which is great for passing the rig through windows, in and out of cars, and up and down multiple levels.
Besides light weight, technical simplicity and fast setup times, one of the best features of the Comodo Orbit is that it's priced under $1,500.00!
The Comodo Orbit
Create beautifully fluid and stable footage with Orbit from Comodo, the world’s first twin-grip, mechanical gimbal camera stabilisation rig.
Designed by multi award-winning cinematographer Leonard Retel Helmrich, to make the highly sought after ‘single-shot cinema’ technique available to film-makers without breaking the bank or losing hours of precious production time to set-up.
Easy to balance and operate, the Orbit offers unmatched simplicity, from setup to production. With no additional weights, motors or batteries required, the Orbit allows your camera to move freely with the action and uniquely into places impossible with other large stabilisation systems to deliver a wow factor to your finished production.
Comodo Orbit Twin mechanical gimbals increase stability and reduce fatigue
The twin-grip design reduces operator fatigue, often found with single-grip devices, and allows the rig to simply be passed smoothly from one operator to another creating an effect where the camera appears to be ‘flying’ through windows, doorways and other narrow spaces in a way that will have your audience asking “How did they do that?”.
Create breathtaking orbits, sweeps and even crane-style shots with this flexible and versatile handheld camera rig – designed to ‘simplify the art of capture’.
