Steadicam Motorbike Hard Mount

without comments

Testing of our new tracker motorbike solution has just been completed. Steadi Facilities Cameras & Vision will be providing coverage of a number of half marathon events through 2011, and as a part of our continued development and desire to ‘push the boundaries’ we are developing a hard mount solution for a Steadicam Flyer LE HD to be operated from the rear of a tracking motorbike.

The work, being carried out by Jason Torbitt with David Abra (Cameras & Motorbike Operations) and Pete Hession (Motorbike Rider and Instructor) will see drastic improvement on the images typically delivered by a handheld camera tracking race coverage.

With top box removed and a customised machined plate in place, the bridge plate from a top hat hard mount has been installed, with options for right-handed or left-handed Steadicam operation. Due to viewing angle, a wireless monitor has been installed for operator’s reference. The motorbike also has voice-activated comms for rider and operator, and customised foot plates for a more comfortable seating position.

Further development of the bike will see the addition of a safety brace and an improved monitor mount.
