Watch Better Friends than Mountains, a documentary film by Dalton Thomas shot using the GyroSpeed and Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera in the mountains of Iraq. A quote from the director, "I didn't need a 3-axes gimbal to run around with. I needed something that was small, inconspicuous, lightweight, and something that could be used without a remote control or monitor if we needed to set up fast and shoot something." Read, the Director's review to learn his reasons for choosing the GyroSpeed at DaltonThomasBlog.org.

The GyroSpeed is OwlDolly’s second in house designed product that will forever change the way you film. It is time to put that old stabilizer on Craigslist because the GyroSpeed is the next evolution in camera stabilization. Regardless of your experience operating a camera, the GyroSpeed is easy to learn. Balancing a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera or any camera under 5 pounds is easy because of the stabilizer's simplified tool-less design. For creating dynamic camera movement, the GyroSpeed is an affordable camera support solution that covers a filmmaker’s needs. It is the one piece of gear that can replace a shoulder rig, a stabilizer, a slider, and a travel jib. Unlike a steadicam rig, the GyroSpeed can go from Low Mode to High Mode or Inverted without ever having to rebalance. The GyroSpeed utilizes a two axes stabilizer: tilt and roll. The system uses sensors under the quick release mount to measure motion. Each GyroSpeed is preprogramed from the factory for the BMPCC, GH4 and Sony A7. The Mode Select switch on the control tube allows for the selection of reprogrammable functions. Through the program Simple BGC, an operator can upload new parameters for different camera setups. An operator can use any OS to monitor in real time sensor readouts, modify modes, and more. The batteries are cleverly stored inside the top handle. OwlDolly offers technical support and repair at our Los Angeles warehouse. Leave the frustration to the computer and stay creative, chase the thrill of the action, build new dynamics, and follow the drama with the GyroSpeed by OwlDolly.
