In the latest issue of Definition Magazine, SHOTOVER's VP of Gimbal Sales, Gordon Barry talks about the latest upgrades to the M1 gimbal.
Shotover Systems has a reputation for its versatile suite of gyro-stabilized camera systems, catering to the needs of cinema, commercial production, ENG markets, and beyond. Its offerings include various top-plate options that facilitate easy mounting
on land, sea, or air platforms. Significant enhancements include the popular six-axis gyro-stabilized Shotover M1. ”We recognized that as gimbals evolve, users desire shots that are truly unique and unprecedented,” explains Gordon Barry, VP of gimbal sales at Shotover. “This leads to pushing the limits beyond the original design specification. To address this, we’ve introduced steel bevel gears and pinions with a nitrided coating on all three axes. We’ve also secured the motor shaft near the pinion and implemented a protective carrier to route cables through the arms to the gimbal ball. This all minimizes wear, enhances reliability and longevity, and meets the requirements of our customers who constantly push the boundaries of what is achievable.”
