The Arri Trinity made a big impression a few months ago when Potato Jet got to go try one out in person. But it’s a $50,000 stabilisation system. It’s a bit out of the budget of most people. A lot of people have mashed a bunch of random gear together to try to make their own – to varying degrees of success.
But now, digitalfoto has announced its (almost) all-in-one low-budget Arri Trinity alternative, the Thanos Pro II – which includes the support vest, arm and carbon fibre monopod sled. I say almost all-in-one because you’ll still need to add your motorised gimbal. Fortunately, it supports plenty.
