The F1 has rapidly become the most requested aerial camera system available with directors and DOP’s demanding its use for their productions.

The F1 system features a rock solid, 6-axis gyro stabilised gimbal with unique design that allows it to look vertically while remaining completely controllable and stable. The F1 system can accept many different cameras and lens combinations and can even be equipped with a highly effective rain spinner, which allows the system to film in wet weather.
Our F1 system can be quickly stripped down for excess baggage shipping via scheduled flights for use anywhere in the world.

Shotover Camera systems


The Shotover K1 is the big brother to the F1 system and can accept larger cameras such as Arri 65, imax, or multi array cameras.

The K1 features the same rock solid 6-axis stability and unique design that allows it to look vertically while remaining completely controllable. Due to its size and weight, it requires a larger camera mount and counterbalance.
