On the back of the G30 are controls for Pan, Tilt, Roll. Pressing each button in turn enables the operator to adjust the axis chosen whilst the G30 holds the camera package in the other two axes. This dramatically reduces the time taken to balance the camera package across all three axes.
Independent axis locks
G30 balancing is further improved with the addition of indexing plungers to the roll and tilt axis. These enable the operator to lock off each axis independently during set-up, and also aid safe transportation
Engraved measurement markings
Sliding components of the G30 now include engraved measurement markings to simplify fine adjustment and support fast repeat setup
Novel 45 Degree Frame Geometry
The G30’s unique oversized frame geometry provides easy access to all the camera connections and accessories, making camera loading fast and simple. Its shorter and stiffer frame delivers better extended crane performance, ensuring the smoothest looking images. The unique frame geometry combined with a re-ordered axis priority (pan, roll, tilt) means that even when the mounted camera is pointing directly down, there is no gimbal lock and all 3 axis of movement and stability are active.
Oversize Direct Drive Motors
The G30’s high torque output oversize motors makes for crisp and precise camera movement, with optimum stabilization. Its built-in axis encoders are designed for virtual production and green screen use, meaning the G30 can be used for VFX shots without the need for re-rigging or additional external encoders.
Designed for Large Camera/Lens Packages
The oversized frame of the G30 means there's no need to use counterweights with large camera payloads to compensate for a gyro frame that is too short. The unique frame design, combined with powerful motors and semi-automatic balancing system, helps to balance a heavy payload.
With a weight of 27kg (excluding wire isolator) and a 30kg/66lbs optimum rated payload, the G30 provides the fastest stabilized acceleration of camera payload in its class. The oversize motors and stub-frame design ensure that the G30 can provide stabilized movement for any camera and lens package chosen by the DP.
Smart Cable Management
The G30’s drive motors all contain ‘through holes’, eliminating the need for slip rings and specialized cables. As a result, standard cables and connectors can be used to connect camera and lens packages, giving the DP a wide choice of equipment.
New Touch/Dial console
The Touch/Dial console for the G30 takes its design from the automotive industry. It comprises a shallow menu structure, a display showing the operator current parameter settings, and physical controls for direct, tactile, intuitive operation. This is the optimum interface for stressed production environments, where changes need to be fast and delays minimised.
Using a combination of the G30’s assisted balancing, simple cage adjustment, and touch/dial console, tuning a camera package for optimum performance is simple and fast compared to traditional gyro-stabilised heads. This process is further accelerated by smart features available through the Touch/Dial console: Auto inertia measurement – auto-sensing of camera payloads; Factory pre-sets – a library of camera/lens weight presets; Console pre-set buttons – recall of previously used camera settings.

We took the G30 out of the box, put it on our mount and turned it on. The stabilization of our picture is significantly better than anything we had seen before – the results have been very, very good.
