GSS – Cineflex

System Features

The Cineflex (formerly the B512) is the best stabilized platform option for smaller, broadcast payloads. With five-axis stabilization and in an extremely small package, this gimbal only weighs 35 lbs (without payload) making it lightweight and versatile!

This new mini gyro-stabilized head GSS complements our Pro and Pro+ versions. On the market, this is the sole head gyro – 5 axis stabilized market in low weight / height.

Intended for applications on light helicopters, we have adapted the GSS Cineflex on our Cablecam  X fly 3D to provide extraordinary stability on our flying system. Output Meta data is available for special effects and motion control movements.

The GSS Cineflex version will be available soon for using 4K digital cameras (F55 / RED / Alexa Mini) with compact optics.
