G3 Stabilised Remote head





The Chapman G3 Stabilised head is a class leading, gyro stabilised remote head, with a (analogue) 2 or 3 axis control system. It's ground breaking design and extraordinary strength combined with superb smooth axis control, makes it the remote head of choice for many crane shots, tracking shots or for mounting multiple cameras on a single rig. The G3 is an ideal choice for 3D film making when you need strength and precise, smooth camera operation.

The G3 is not surprisingly used on many feature films, car commercials, for capturing action sequences and a wide range of crane shots. Time and again the G3 has provided accurate and smooth operation for fast and dynamic camera work, even with large 3D rigs. The G3 can be configured in overslung or underslung mode in seconds without effecting the camera balance, no time wasted drilling and screwing, changing modes takes seconds. When used in conjunction with our Hydrascope cranes, the G3 remote head provides the perfect tool for a huge range of dynamic tracking shots (see photos). The G3 is compatible with all our Cranes, Dollies and Tracking Vehicles.

The G3 remote head uses silent gyro stabilisation, eliminating vibration to the camera during movement. Combine the G3 with a horizontal and (or) a vertical vibration isolator for rock steady tracking shots (the results have to be seen to be believed). Watch the Hydrascope video for an example of the G3 and the vibration isolator in action.

The G3 Remote Head works with our Vibration Isolators, all our Tracking Vehicles, Hydrascope telescopic cranes, fixed arm cranes and Hydraulic Dollies.
