The flexibility of the Dactylcam by Defy allows users to move from handheld camera operation to line rig operation with very little down time.
According to the US company, the Dactylcam Kit is sure to take production and cinematography to new heights.
Prokit takes a look at the new kit that combines a premium line-based, camera-rig system with the G12 camera gimbal stabilizer.
The Dactylcam is designed to support heavy payloads that could normally not be achieved in any other aerial filming production. The adjustable drive wheel allows the user to achieve the smoothest motion under extreme conditions.
The Dactylcam is capable of carrying payloads up to 50 pounds, as well reaching speeds of up to 40mph.
Defy’s Dactylcam is designed to pack down into any production size. Constructed from a two-piece aluminium sled, allows the kit to disassemble into a very manageable footprint.
Dactylcam’s portability gives users the ability to capture shots they would normally be unable to achieve.
The Dactylcam is designed to give users the versatility they require. With its quick setup time and easy movability, you can now film in tight locations that were otherwise off-limits.
Filming inches above water, through trees or over large crowds is no match for the Dactylcam. This setup will truly be one of the most versatile and safest products in your productions.
The US firm’s product is designed to be one of the easiest line systems to use. The tow-piece packable aluminium sled is quick to assemble and setup.
Gimbals are attached using the unique dampening swing and quick release plate, allowing users to go from handheld mode to line mode in minutes. Two safety pins allow you to easily attach the system to a line or move.
