Nature shooters everywhere perked up their ears a few years ago when the BeetleCam came out – finally there was a remote control rig that would allow inexpensive fuss-free filming of animals without the risk of (potentially) getting hurt, or worse. One problem, though, was stabilization – nature documentaries and other videos of the like are so keenly watched by the general public precisely because of their beauty, and it’s hard to get a beautiful shot if your camera is shaking.
Not so with the BeetleCam Hybrid, which adds a gyro-stabilised gimbal to the classic base. It supports cameras up to the weight of a Canon 5d MkIII, has a remote control range of more than 500m, boasts an option for wireless live viewing, and many more features.
