Teton Gravity Research posts gyro-stabilized 4k video










Action sports video production company Teton Gravity Research (TGR) has posted the first video shot with the GSS C520, a five-axis gyro-stabilized 4K cinema system by GSS (Gyro-Stabilized Systems). The C520 is compatible with the RED Epic, Arri Alexa M and Sony F55/HDC-2500 video cameras. For this video, the system was fitted with a RED Epic video camera and mounted on a helicopter to capture 4K stabilized footage of San Francisco, California. (via FStoppers)

Eh. The bokeh wasn’t creamy.

So…where’s the 4k video file? I see a couple of digicam shots of the setup, and what looked to be a highly compressed 720 (looked too smeared for even 1080) version of the video on vimeo, but nothing that would let me see it at full res on even my paltry 4960×1600 res setup.

Oh, and I’ll bet it cost more than James’ Aunt’s girlfriend made grafting on the internet last month.

The best part about these is that even in 1080p, it should have higher apparent resolution than other 1080p sources, because there’s a full RGB value set at each pixel, as opposed to the typical 1080p sensor that only has one color value at each pixel.

It’s the same reason a 24megapixel sensor image downressed to 12megapixel looks sharper than a 12megapixel sensor image.

need telephoto to check performance of a stabilized system. the extreme case that I know of is some NHK videos shot with a 10,000mm lens (reflective) 30km from Fukushima Nuclear Plant.

Currently being miniaturized for deployment on Stealth Department of Homeland Security Drones (for your safety).

They don’t need 4K video. Haven’t you seen 24 or NCIS? They have magic software that can produce 8K video from VHS security footage.

“why does it look so choppy in pan?”

Possibly your computer video card can’t keep up with the footage.

I sometimes have flying dreams. This was just like them. Amazing.

It is 24 fps so it will always be choppy.

Ridiculously good.

The views are literally breath-taking… made me rethink value of still photography.
