Helix 1-axis Pro on dock

The Letus Helix Pro is a camera stabilization system for those setups that are a bit larger/longer/heavier than the average.  It comes with a front support ring and V-lock battery.  The 1-axis setup is a great companion to the Steadicam, maintaining the horizon for you while you focus on other things.

modular configurations

Our modular design means that you can change configurations as needed. For example, a 3-axis system can be used in 3-axis mode or a 1-axis mode to suit your filming needs.

1 axis

Standard_Helix_With_Front_Support (1)

This setup is most popular as an auto-horizon solution when mounted on a Steadicam sled. It allows the camera to remain level even when doing 360 degree rolls.

3 axis

1-axis Pro back

This setup is best for hand-held shooting with medium to larger camera setups like the Arri Mini or larger RED setups.
