Frame with precision, operate with confidence
This is a gimbal operator's dream: The world’s first Monitor Positioning System (MPS) ensures your monitor is always facing you while operating at any angle. Whether you are shooting at ground level or high overhead, Orbit ensures you can frame the shot accurately and confidently. Now bundled with the NEW Satellite Thumb Controller, you can adjust your monitor tilt in manual mode, or activate the unique “Follow Me” accessory to automatically and continuously reposition your monitor in real-time.
Expand your Range by 50% or More
Gimbals have revolutionised camera movement, but the practical limitation of seeing the monitor to frame your shot means ground level and overhead shots are often a guess. Shots that go from low-to-high or high-to-low are extremely difficult to frame accurately. Orbit MPS solves this problem by ensuring your monitor is always tilted towards you. You can manually adjust monitor position for simple shots, but the real magic is the "Follow Me" Sensor which automatically and continuously repositions the monitor to face you at all times. With Orbit your shot angle range is greatly expanded. And Orbit is not tied to a single operator - you can still achieve great handoff shots to other operators and Orbit will keep tracking.
Freedom at Your Fingertip
The Satellite Thumb Controller is the ideal companion for Orbit. Satellite brings all the controls you want for manually adjusting monitor tilt and activating FollowMe right at your fingertips. You never need to set the gimbal down, or require assistance for adjustments.
Satellite also features a camera run/stop button, which is available when you add the compatible run/stop cable for your camera (cable purchased separately). The Orbit and Satellite combination brings flexibility and greater range of motion to all your gimbal shots. Get yours today!
