New Orbit camera rig is a show-stopper

A pioneering camera rig launched by Bowens last month (Feb) is proving to be a real show-stopper.


Stocks of the £999 Comodo Orbit - a brand new camera stabilisation device that enables radical single shot' cinematic options - sold out in two days at the London ExCeL BVE broadcast Tech Show and Bowens marketing director Robert Cook announced the company had been overwhelmed by interest in the products at the WPPI Show in Las Vegas and The Photography Show at The NEC.

Said Cook ''We launched the Comodo Orbit rig globally at BVE and sold out the entire UK stock in two days. That has been followed up by astonishing interest in the rig at both the US WPPI event and The Photography Show - and we are now rush producing more units to meet the demand.''

He added ''This is a pioneering design and it was simply impossible to predict what the demand would be. As it is, we have simply been overwhelmed with orders and positive feedback. Film-makers just love it.''

The Comodo Orbit is the brainchild of multi-award-winning Dutch film director Leonard Retel Helmrich and enables users to shoot a scene in a single take using just one camera moving fluidly - almost like flying- around the subject' .

The new device, which incorporates a unique patented twin-grip capability, allows users to move freely with the action - allowing seamless access into places previously considered impossible with other support systems and creating a totally exclusive viewer perspective.

Retel Helmrich, who has spent years working on the rig, believes the market for the new product is huge.

He said ''We think that everyone who uses a small camera or camcorder could potentially be a customer for this rig which brings a new dimension to film-making techniques.''

Tim Haskell Bowens Business Development Manager said ''The interest in this new camera rig has been nothing short of awesome. We've got new stock coming now and interested film-makers can order from www.comodorigs.com or from our Comodo dealer network.''
