Create beautifully fluid and stable footage with ORBIT from Comodo, the world’s first twin-grip, mechanical gimbal camera stabilisation rig.
Designed by multi award-winning cinematographer Leonard Retel Helmrich, to make the highly sought after ‘single-shot cinema’ technique available to film-makers without breaking the bank or losing hours of precious production time to set-up.
Easy to balance and operate, the ORBIT offers unmatched simplicity, from setup to production. With no additional weights, motors or batteries required, the Orbit allows your camera to move freely with the action and uniquely into places impossible with other large stabilisation systems to deliver a wow factor to your finished production.
The twin-grip design reduces operator fatigue, often found with single-grip devices, and allows the rig to simply be passed smoothly from one operator to another creating an effect where the camera appears to be ‘flying’ through windows, doorways and other narrow spaces in a way that will have your audience asking “How did they do that?”.
Create breathtaking orbits, sweeps and even crane-style shots with this flexible and versatile handheld camera rig – designed to ‘simplify the art of capture’.

Some quotes to think about
The camera must be equally as ready to move as to remain still. […] The camera has a human quality it is a projection of hand and eye, almost a living part of the operator, instantly in tune with his awareness.
I wish I had a camera that can move freely in space.[...]
that at any moment can go anywhere, at any speed.
The play of pure movement […], vigorous and abundant. All this we shall be able to create when the camera has at last has been dematerialized”. Only with this essential instrument shall we be able to realize new possibilities. [...]The camera is the director's sketching pencil. It should be as mobile as possible to catch every passing mood.
I would like to call this new age of cinema the age of camera-stylo (camera-pen)[…] to become a means of writing just as flexible and subtle as written language.
