HYBRIS - Shock Absorber

Hybris is custom designed to reduce high and low frequency vib- rations and hard impact shocks typically experienced when shooting from mo- ving platforms on rough terrain or paved roads. The front mount can be set for under or overslung use of any camera, gimbal or stabilized head.  

A finely balance and adjustable linear eddy current brake and spring system gi- ves you a stable platform from which to shoot. The fact that it operates without contact means it is wear-free and unaffected by wheather conditions. It can be applied with great precision. The damping performance is controlled via Hybris- App. 

Griptech Horizontal Vibration Isolator

Low profile.

X and Y axis lock offs.

Mitchell fitting standard.

20mm risers included.  For use with geared heads (hand wheel clearance).

Dampers prove very effective when shooting on rougher terrain (springs don’t “bottom out”).

GFM Vertical Vibration Isolator (Maxi & Mini Shock Absorbers)

The Maxi Shock Absorber is for use with gyro stabilized heads to reduce  high & low frequency vibrations and hard impact shocks during high  speed chases on rough and bumpy terrain. The best results are achieved  when used with the Iso-Dampener.
The Maxi Shock Absorber allows for  individual adjustment and setting, depending on the choice of stabilized  head and taking into consideration the terrain of the shooting environment. 

The Mini Shock Absorber is for use with gyro stabilized heads to reduce  high & low frequency vibrations and semi-hard impact shocks during  high speed chases and rough crane moves. The best results are achieved  when used with the Iso Dampener.
