by planetMitchLeave a Comment

Our good friends at DitoGear are doing a Black Friday sale!

Not so long ago DitoGear™, a leading company providing innovative motion control equipment, announced VibraFreek to fill the gap between DIY rigs for mounting cameras on the cars and expensive Russian Arm systems leveraging the use of gimbal stabilizers for shooting pro automotive shots on a budget…

Now we have some new test footage for an enhancement called the XY module which adds another level of stabilization – making it possible to drive harder and still get smooth footage.

Plus, DitoGear can also modify your existing vehicle if you need – or you can just buy the BMW shown in the demo.

Perfect moving vehicle shots at a fraction of price

Although gimbal stabilizers have made it to the mainstream, achieveing smooth shots from moving vehicles still requires specialized equipment which used to be very expensive. Not anymore. DitoGear™ VibraFreek can be adapted to work on any standard car and with a 3rd party gimbal stabilizer, such as ACR Systems (formerly BeSteady), DJI Ronin or MOVI, makes a complete high-end setup for achieving silky smooth shots in motion at a fraction of price

Payloads

VibraFreek takes payloads up to 38kg* effectively taking a high-end gimbal stabilizer and majority of cameras used nowadays. In fact, the higher the payload the better.

Mounting Options

SpiderMount configuration
DitoGear™ VibraFreek arm mounts directly to the SpiderMount Baseplate. 4 adjustable arms make it easy to rig it to a vehicle that has already some basic grip points available using. Suction cups can be used as well, but are not recommended for safety and performance reasons. See technical specs for SpiderMount details.

Pillar configuration
For the best performance DitoGear™ recommends the Pillar configuration. The pillar allows for simple vertical positioning of the camera and gimbal rig. This mounting option will require custom work to be done on the vehicle including welding to the rigid parts of the car. The bottom end of the pillar mounts to a support frame which is welded or fixed to the car frame near the front or rear fender. The Pillar Support Arm is hinge-mounted to the top of the pillar and to available supports on the roof of your car.
