See why top Steadicam operators and opinion leaders like Cyclo 1 head so much.
I used Cyclo 1 for all sorts of shots, many of them challenging to do before. This stabilized head allows to create frames that are natural, dynamic and super-smooth.

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.
We are thrilled to tell you that Betz Tools is our official partner in Europe. By combining HD Air Studio's experience in the camera stabilization systems and Betz Tool's deep understanding of the Steadicam™ world, we want to spread the word about Cyclo stabilized head.

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.
