Default My vibration free camera mount

Hello all. I've reached a good level of isolation from heli vibrations with my camera mount. The optical SteadyShot system built in my Sony hdrcx130e works very well but is also very sensitive to vibrations. With this solution (see the video) seems that no vibrations is transmitted to the camera and so all the power of the optical stabilizers can be used. No software stabilization is used in editing.
Bye

Very nice! I could tell it was going to be awesome when you spooled up on the ground with NO vibration. Well done.

Do you have any more details for others who want to follow your excellent setup?

A$$ - Amazing Suspension System.

How many miniature bearings???
Want to get one of these cams to try with Picloc.

Complimenti, Silvio!! Davvero un ottimo risultato!

Damn fine piece of engineering!

I've thought something like this was possible. It's seemed to me like some of the vibration damping systems on the market to date have been stuck in the 70's or something.

Incredibly complicated though!

Thank you very much for compliments! It's still a prototype howewer the basic idea is to put the gymbal over three ball bearings sliders: two slider in x,y direction (the rotor plane) but also a slider in z axis infact the heli do vibrate in vertical direction (not so intuitive for me to discover) enough to disturb the camera gyroscopes (the steadyshot system). This is sufficient to kill a lot of vibrations if the mechanism is well built.
