Kenyon KS-8 Gyro Rental
Knowing that camera movement destroys image sharpness but that profitable pictures are often made on the run, smart pros seek a compromise between tripod and handheld exposures. Countless portable supports exist, but even if a stationary object can be found on location, critical shots can be lost in the time needed to set up. Minimum clarity sometimes depends on use – a soft image being acceptable, say, for news but not evidence work - but when the maximum percentage of tack sharp handheld shots are needed the gyro stabilizer is in order
Enter the Kenyon Gyro Stabilizer, a small, battery-powered, pod-like case that screws into a tripod socket and “floats” the camera in free space with only its weight supported by your hands. The device is maintenance free, works with any camera , spotting scope or binocular and, best of all, retains the freedom and speed of handheld shooting. The Kenyon system is neither a musing of some future technology nor a magic trick, but an intelligent application of basic physics.
The Admiral KS-8
The Admiral has been developed to provide Ken-Lab’s simplified stabilization for camera equipment in the 8 to 12 pound range. Through the use of heavy metal tungsten wheels the effect of two KS-6 units is achieved in a standard KS-6 housing, with no increase in running power required.
