DETAILS

It is helpful or a must to use the gyro stabilizer when you have to fight wind (which is always the enemy of cardanic stabilized equipment) or on any vehicle like aircraft, boats, cars, long-lense shots, etc. Steadicam operators often use 2 KS-6 gyros. The KS-8 is rather meant for heavy movie-cameras. The KS-6 is similarly different (weight!) from the KS-8. Both are same size, the wheels are both spinning at same speed (aprox. 20,000 RPM), same run-time off battery, and both work with the same inverter.
