- Place optimum motion control at the user's fingertips
- Programmed motion control eliminates the risk of vibrations or unwanted swaying
- Capture fast motion with remarkable fluidity
- No more pushing dollies or assembling a jib
- Ideal for super slow motion and extreme macro shots
- Complicated setups now take minutes
- Permits speeds of up to 10 feet per second
- Enables multiple angles in a single shot
The Colossus provides a maximum height of 12 feet and a horizontal reach of 10.2 feet. With this reach, directors have the creative freedom to capture the action at any angle. Thanks to the range of movement possible, even stationary objects will seemingly come to life with amazing vitality.
To create movement that flows smoothly and effortlessly, you can pan, tilt, roll, and lift your lens into any position with added confidence.
Some shots from Kane Brown's "Grand" music video were shot on our Colossus robot. Check it out above!
