I have designed and developed over the last year a bespoke motion control gantry to facilitate macro cinematography principally of wildlife subjects.
The gantry is XY and Pan and Tilt axes and is designed to accommodate RED, Arri and other large format cinema cameras. The unit is designed to work with macro lenses and is routinely used with focal lengths such as 200m micro lenses and 10x microscope objectives.
The camera can be flown with a PS4 controller live, or recorded and played back for repeat VFx moves.
It mounts on a 100mm bowl, or 3/8″ tie down and work in any orientation. Tilt is +/- 45 degrees and Pan is 360 degrees. X rail is 18″ and Y is 12″.
