What is the Hybris?
It is a custom designed and magnet-based shock absorber to reduce high and low frequency vibrations and hard impact shocks. Those are typically experienced when shooting from moving platforms on rough terrain or paved roads.
What makes the Hybris special and unique? A new damping experience!
A finely balanced and adjustable linear eddy current brake (magnets) and spring system gives you a stable platform from which to shoot. The fact that it operates without contact means it is wear-free and unaffected by weather conditions.
Due to the eddy current break characteristics the Hybris system starts already to react in a range of millimeters when minimum position changes occur. Significant changes in position and speed leads to a movement delay of the shock absorber which provoke that the image of the camera is stable.
The Hybris allows a spring range of 46 cm and a payload between 1-40kg (without applying any additional weights to the system).
Moreover, the use of microcontrollers enables a high precision damping fine tuning and can be controlled manually or via Hybris App (Bluetooth).
The front mount can be set for under or over slung, use of any camera, gimbal or stabilized head.
Therefore, the Hybris achieves the optimum position for the perfect shot.
A lightweight, resistant, and ultra-flexible active vacuum mounting platform that delivers a multitude of rigging possibilities with ultimate functionality. The VacuMount system is ideal for mounting cameras, gimbals, camera heads, lights or other accessories on all smooth surfaces such as windows, cars, walls etc.! With the C3 VacuMount System you can take shots with the camera directed at the driver from the front of a car (off the hood), or from the side of a car - the C3 System covers these applications entirely. The C3 can be used as a single mounting system, or as addition with further C3, or the C1 VacuMounts for a bigger rigging. (see attachment) The VacuMount is a modular system and can be ordered piece by piece or as a complete package (VacuMount System Kit – 3988,-€). You can supply by one control unit (pump) 6 suction cups (2x C3 or 1xC3+3xC1).
