KS-4 Gyro with 14V Attached Inverter for Steadicam Use
The KS-4 gyro stabilizer with a 14 volt attached inverter has become a very popular solution for Steadicam use. Operators who may already have onboard stabilization find by adding the gyro to their rig offers a little extra help in the axis that is not covered by the electronic stabilization built in to the rig. When filming outdoors and in tricky situations where the wind is blowing or other disturbances make it difficult to get good shots, the KS-4 gives you a helping hand.
The photos show just one configuration we can make. You can see the on/off switch that we can install in the box and you have a couple choices as to how you would like the power to get into the inverter. The photo shows the cable is hardwired with a straight cable, but we can also fit a small 0B 2 pin lemo panel connector into the box so you can use a detachable cable instead. For more info and to discuss your specific needs, call or email and we will be glad to work with you.
The other thing to consider will be where and how you will attach it to the rig. We have multiple solutions we can make. The photo shows a simple Anton Bauer gold mount plate we can make that would attach in place of one of the onboard batteries. Gold mount plate sold separately.
