NEWTON stabilized remote heads are used in the most prestigious broadcast productions in the world and here are a few reasons.
More camera angles
A NEWTON stabilized remote head on a moving platform enables fast changes of positions of the camera, thus giving you more camera angles.
NEW camera ANGLES AND POSITIONS
As the NEWTON gimbal is compact, it also enables cameras to be positioned where a camera man or a big remote head would be hard to hide for the other cameras or for the audience onsite. For example, at stage performances, NEWTON is a popular camera system between the performers and the audience, due to its low-profile features.
Through premium gyro-stabilization and auto-horizon performance, NEWTON delivers outstanding image stability even during aggressive maneuvers and accelerations, in high speed wind and in strong g-forces. This enables these remote-controlled cameras to be shooting during motion and to create moving shots while following the action on various moving camera platforms.
