Unique 'Bullet time 360" rig for providing the ultimate 'hero' selfie.  

Traditionally, you needed a fixed rig of perhaps 50 DSLR cameras in a circle to make this shot with a lot of crew, knowhow and data.  Today, you only need a single GoPro and an OrcaVue platform.

Creates a unique shot when used in conjunction with DSLR/GoPro type cameras reminiscent of the Matrix "Bullet Time" shot which only makes sense when you see the shots that it facilitates.

User Feedback

"It was a fun tool to use!.  100fps from our old GoPro looks great doing the 360 degrees.  One thing to be aware is that if you go full speed for a long period of time then there is a possibility that the GoPro arm might start to tilting down so the user has to be aware." Stephen Roach, Merchant Cantos.

 

Recommended Cameras

iPhone 6 or 6 plus

GoPro Hero 4 Black Edition

Sony FDR-X1000V Action Cam

Panasonic GH4

Sony Alpha A7s - in our view, these are the heaviest cameras to use with this system, as heavier cameras will necessarily limit the speed of rotation that the system can be used with.

*Canon 70D

*Canon 6D

*Canon 5d Mark III 

*Nikon D800

 

VMI has taken the standard package and modified it to work with Anton Bauer power for a more reliable solution.
