For those of you who need a chase car with a built in crane and stabilization system (and a bigger budget than planet5D has LOL), DitoGear has a big time special going on and you should take a look.
The shots made by the DitoGear Chase Car in this demo reel are beautifully smooth!
Make sure you check it out.
