MECHANIC VS HYBRID CAMERA STABILIZERS

Updated: Feb 18


Which Stabilizes Better?


What is a hybrid camera stabilizer?

A hybrid camera stabilizer it’s a mix between physic-mechanic and electronics, taking the advantages of both worlds, it is based on a mechanic camera stabilizer modified to hold a rotary head on top which has an electronic board and brushless motors to stabilize the horizon and tilt of a camera.


How Does a Hybrid camera stabilizer Work?

A hybrid gimbal camera stabilizer works with two different sources to stabilize a camera.  

First of all it uses the Free power of physics in combination with a double shock absorber arm to do the main stabilization job that in the hands of a professional solves the 90% to 97% of the total stabilization, and then uses an electronic board with electronic motors to do the fine tuning to correct the remaining 3% to 10% to achieve the perfect stabilization result with less than 1 degree of inclination error.



Comparison Between Mechanic camera stabilizer vs Hybrid camera stabilizer


The main differences between a mechanic camera stabilizer vs a hybrid camera stabilizer, is that a mechanic camera stabilizer in the hands of a professional operator can reach around 90 % to 97% percent of perfect stabilization once you are a professional operator.

A hybrid camera stabilizer it’s a mix between physic-mechanic and electronics, taking the advantages of both worlds, it is based on a mechanic camera stabilizer modified to hold a rotary head on top which has an electronic board and brushless motors to stabilize the the horizon and tilt of a camera.

First of all it uses the Free power of physics in combination with a double shock absorber arm to do the main stabilization job. A hybrid gimbal camera stabilizer works with two different sources to stabilize a camera.  

And a professional camera stabilizer operator with hybrid camera stabilizer will start from that 90% to 97% of mechanic stabilization and then from that point the electronic board will do the rest to achieve a perfect 99% to 100% perfect stabilization result with less than 1 degree of inclination error.

But that's not all, even if you are a beginner you will also get the same perfect level of stabilization, then of course for perfect framing it will take more time and experience as well as it will need to gain endurance and coordination only achieved with practice, because the panning it is made with your hand as with any other mechanic camera stabilizer, creating a realistic organic smooth stabilization.

A hybrid camera stabilizer also reduce the time to learn how to use it because it does all the job with the electronics, so if you are a beginner you will get great results of stabilization as if you were a beginner with a 3 axis gimbal.

A mechanic camera stabilizer absorbs bumps and shakes, is a portable CAMERA stabilization system based on physic laws pulleys and counterweights that frees the video camera from the unwanted movements of the terrain surface as well as from camera stabilizer operator’s body.

A mechanic camera stabilizer is based on 3 main components, the center post or sled that has a camera plate on top, then the center post has a gimbal or handle where you grab it, and a bottom weight with batteries and a monitor that acts as a counterweight, then it has double shock absorber arm to remove shakes, and the padded vest to distribute the weight thru the operators body.

On the other side a hybrid Basson Steady is based on 4 main components, the electro mechanic rotary head motorized with brushless motors and controlled with an electronic board, then center post or sled that has a camera plate on top to hold the rotary head, then the center post is longer and has a gimbal or handle where you grab it.

On that handle or gimbal handle we have 3 clamps to attach for example any 7 inch or 5 inch 12v lcd monitor that will be much closer to your eyes, at around one feet so it is much easier to frame a shot.

The handle also has a clamp to hold a cell phone to control the video camera with an app, and also has clamp for a wireless a zoom or lens controller attached to the handle, and then a bottom weight with 2 or 3 batteries that acts as a counterweight.

Then it has reinforced double shock absorber arm to remove shakes but with a decompressor to reduce the fatigue of your back and to let you carry more weight for longer periods of time, and finally a comfortable triple padded vest to distribute the weight thru the operators body.
