John Harrington-WHAT WE USE - Kenyon Gyro

Thursday, January 24, 2008

Here's a video segment on the Kenyon Gyro that we use. a transcription of the video is available after the jump.

Hands on instructional video on photography from Assignment Construct.

Hi, I’m John Harrington and we’re going to break out and break down the wide variety of equipment we use to deliver images to our clients. Next we are going to show you one of the equipment kits we use when we are traveling on assignment. Each kit is different and has a very specific purpose. So lets take a look.

On shoots where we’re not steady, whether it’s an unstable platform or its long lenses and slow shutter speeds, we rely on our Kenyon Gyro to steady the shot.

We pack it in a Pelican 1450 Case and it either attaches to the bottom of the camera or the bottom of the lens depending on which system we’re using. The kit is relatively small. The Gyro itself also is relatively small. There are multiple sizes of gyros.

The key with the Gyro is to make sure when its powering up or powering down you don’t have it on a surface because it will chatter around as its trying to steady itself on a flat surface and it could cause damage to the gimble inside.

A well thought out helicopter will actually have a power connection for you to connect the Gyro directly into the helicopters power. If you don’t have that though what you can do is connect into a belt pack battery pack that you where on your belt or if you don’t have a helicopter to plug into out and about.

So this is our Kenyon Gyro.

Below the video is a link to each of the segments, Let me know what you think!
