Battery mount types for the Pilot 2 include standard mounts like V-Lock and Anton Bauer, as well as a variety of DV battery mount options. The Pilot 2 is offered with or without a 1000 nit HD Monitor and comes with a D-Tap power port on the stage for camera and accessory power. The detachable base makes for a sled or system that is easy to break down, transport and rig.

The new Steadimate arm and vest adapter is for use with gimbals such as the DJI Ronin, increasing its usability. The Steadimate takes the load off the operator’s arms allowing operation for hours on end and allows for effortless tilting of the camera.

Operators can interchange between hand held use or arm and vest use. It is sold as the adapter only or as a complete system with an Arm and Vest. Adding the Steadimate and a Pilot 2 system to your toolkit creates a well-rounded package for modern cinematographers.
