The Hague Levitator Camera Stabilizer is like a manually controlled version of the DJI Ronin systems in that you can create some very smooth footage but without the added cost of the motorised gimble systems. The Levitator basically uses the cameras own weight to get it correctly balanced and once it is balanced the shots you can achieve are extraordinarily smooth. It works similar to a traditional steadicam with regards the gimble system but instead of having just the single gimble it incorporates two alongside the two handles.
HAGUE CAMERA SUPPORTS PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The Hague Levitator is a camera support system similar to a Camframe or Fig Rig, but which has the stabilizing effect of a Steadicam. Like the Fig Rig the support is held by both hands, but the Levitator’s handles are totally free moving and the camera is self balancing, similar to a Steadicam but without the need for counterbalance weights. It’s this combination that gives the camera a levitating effect as if it is floating through the air.
The Levitator uses the camera’s own weight for counterbalance, so there is no need for counterbalance weights as used on most “Steadicam type” stabilizers. This reduces the weight of the support and the twin handle design makes it easier to hold for long periods. Once the camera is balanced, the Levitator gives the camera a truly floating effect with easy directional and tilt control with the two handles.
As there is very little restriction above or below the camera, the Levitator can simply skim over or under items creating shots unattainable from other devices. The sealed radial bearings in the pivot cups and the ball socket handles reduce hand movement as you move around.
It’s quick and simple to set up and the quick release camera plate makes it easy to get your camera on and off the support. Extra mounting holes and a cold shoe enables you to attach any extra accessories to the Levitator. The supplied rigging stands make it easy to adjust the Levitator’s fine trim controls until optimum balance is achieved. Also included is a Balance Correction Adapter, this is only required when heavy lenses are mounted to the camera making it very front heavy, or accessories are mounted to the camera that may affect the cameras centre of balance.
