KS-12 Gyro Stabilizer
Kenyon Laboratories has been building the Kenyon Gyro Stabilizer for almost fifty years. Initially designed to keep binoculars steadily on target from a pitching ship, the units are also now used for medium format cameras, cinematographers and even NASA.
Using the Gyro Stabilizer on a camera, one can obtain clear crisp shots from unusual situations, from a plane or helicopter our units will dampen out the motor and rotor vibration. When shooting at low light levels one can get large format pictures with slower shutter speeds or slower film , without the encumbrance of a tripod.
We build four different sizes of gyros, all relating to the weight of the equipment to be stabilized.
When the tripod is unacceptable, and handheld is blurry, our invisible tripod makes the job much easier, with much less waste of film, and a much greater success rate.
The KS-12 has been fully redesigned and is 4 times stronger than the KS-8. Two 5 LB. tungsten wheels spin over 20,000 RPM and a 24v DC cooling fan is attached to the gyro to help prolong the life of the bearings.
The "Chief" is made for prolonged continuous use and is not meant for hand holding.
A 24-32V DC 400 Hz 220 AC sine wave inverter is included in the purchase price. The gyro draws 7-8 amps at the start and drops to 2.5-3 amps at full running speed.
