The Cineflex Heligimbal is a recently[when?] developed form of gimbal technology in the form of a motion-stabilized helicopter mount for motion picture cameras.

The technology, originally developed by the military, provides an unprecedented degree of motion stabilization and extreme telephoto capabilities to achieve “rock solid” aerial shots despite the vibration inherent in helicopter flights. The gyro-stabilized system works with the operator using a joystick from within the helicopter to control the camera movements.

  • Impressive Heligimbal cinematography was seen in the initial episode (“From Pole to Pole”) of the 2006 Planet Earth BBC television series.
