Gyro headsHighlights from Cyclo 1 Day in New York

March 26, 2024

March 2, 2024, we organized Cyclo 1 Demo Day in New York. It was the first time the Steadicam community in New York could try our modular stabilized head for various Steadicam systems. We couldn’t expect a better welcome – around 80 Steadicam operators, Directors of Photography and film industry professionals came to discover Cyclo 1 for themselves – testing its capabilities and exploring its potential applications.

Throughout the day, attendees had the opportunity to engage in hands-on demonstrations, ask questions, and exchange ideas with fellow professionals. Cyclo 1 Demo Day wasn’t just a showcase of Cyclo 1 technology; it was also a social event. Attendees had the chance to interact with existing users of Cyclo 1 head, gaining insights from those who have already used our stabilized head in many film & TV projects.

Cyclo 1 is not only a Steadicam head

During the demo day in New York, we showcased Cyclo 1 in two distinct applications: mounted on a Steadicam and integrated into a dolly with Nodo wheels for remote frame control.

Steadicam #1: Sony Venice + Zeiss Nano Primes

Steadicam #2: Alexa Mini LF + Vintage Full Frame Prime

 Dolly + Wheels: Sony Venice + Angenieux Optimo 25-250 + NODO wheels


This dual demonstration highlights the adaptability of Cyclo 1- enhancing stability and precision in a variety of shooting scenarios. But that’s not it – on a daily basis Cyclo 1 is successfully used by Cyclo 1 Operators also on cranes, tripods, jibs, dollies.


What stood out most of all to Demo Day attendees?


  1. Joystick – playing with many parameters that you can adjust, when working with Cyclo 1 joystick, such as speed, smoothness, exact angles of your shot.
  2. Automoves – planning your shot using our interface or joystick so that when you hear “Action”, you exactly know what moves the head will do.
  3. Both Steadicam operators and DoPs appreciated Cyclo 1 for its versatility – allowing to capture great Steadicam shots plus many additional applications with just one piece of gear.

A big thank you goes out to Greenwood Cinema Rentals for hosting us, ensuring Cyclo 1 Demo Day was a great day of innovation and cinematography.
