Thank you, I’m absolutely loving this head ❤️ It’s amazing where I can get with the camera. And going high to low is a game changer! There is no transition time from high to low like with a traditional Steadicam, which allows for faster shots and smoother transitions.

I’ve been flying Steadicam for 11 years and seen all kinds of machinery. This is a product you should be proud of. I feel like I’ve been using it for years. Unreal level of stabilization. The longest focal length I used was 135mm and I'm impressed. No vibration, or any sort of trouble.

FAQs

How can I power on Cyclo stabilized head?

Cyclo is compatible with a wide range of voltage: from 10 to 34 Volts. Please remember that the voltage lower than 10V might cause emergency stops.

The screen saver is activated. Where shall I touch the screen to prevent accidental activation of random command?

You can click anywhere. First touch is protected from accidental command activation.

Will Cyclo 1 stop when I put fingers inside the head that rotates?

Never put your fingers inside the head when it’s rotating. You can get seriously injured! There is an overload protection for motors from burning the electronical components.

When I try to make unlimited revolutions (using a joystick), the head stops at some point.

Set CW and CCW values to 0. This will allow you to make unlimited rotations.

Can I work without a joystick?

Yes, you can.  Just make sure that you unplug the joystick when motors are switched off.

Someone accidently touched a joystick when changing the camera. How can I prevent such situations?

Turn off the joystick and unplug it. If possible, we recommend turning off the head during camera/lens adjustment.

During auto moves the head stops and diagnostic diodes start flashing.

Check the power settings. If power is too low for the camera weight and the speed, the head can go to the emergency stop. Increase the power and check it again.
