How Stabilmove Works

CAMERA Cranes from Stabilmove are the first cranes

to make possible four distinct camera tracking shots.

When using the Parallel Pan function, the camera is always facing one specific direction. This function is comparable with that of a slider, and attains extremely vivid results. This is due to the foreground and the background shifting relative to one another, which yields an impressively multi-dimensional depth. The adjustment knobs on the two guide arms are set to the outer edge to create a Parallel Pan shot.

With the Circular Pivot the camera stays angled toward the subject matter. Due to the camera automatically turning itself simultaneously to the crane’s rotation, the resulting shots are incredibly fluid and balanced. Until now, this kind of result was only possible with considerable technical efforts. The adjustment knob on the upper guide arm gets slid toward the camera for a Circular Pivot shot; the distance from the subject matter determines how far the adjustment knob should be positioned from the camera.

The Broad Pivot is essentially a panoramic pan. However, in comparison to a tilting video head, the shots are markedly more spacious. With this function, the multi-dimensionality and depth of the pivot is also attained through the sliding of the foreground and the background relative to one another. For this pivot, the adjustment knob on the bottom guide arm gets slid toward the tripod mount. The further the adjustment knob gets slid, the bigger the panorama pivot will be.

The Vertical Pivot enables the classic tracking shots you are familiar with from other cranes. With the Stabilmove cranes, however, you can combine this pivot with the other horizontal pivots the crane is capable of. The camera remains oriented horizontally. Using the two adjustment knobs on the anchoring sections you can adjust the descent smoothly.
