Paradise FX Launches Helios 3D Stereo Rig
Steadicam operator Chris McGuire said: "Paradise FX’s new HELIOS 3D rig is a welcome relief for Steadicam. Its handling is great because of its dynamically self-balancing design and its ergonomics – everything is easily accessible and positioned properly for the operator. Weighing just 42lbs, it’s a complete 3D shooting rig that is physically tuneable to the endurance of the operator.”
Producer Charlotte Huggins commented: “I had the pleasure of working with the Paradise FX crew and their new HELIOS Steadicam rig on a recent project. I was amazed at how easily it moved, wirelessly, and covered the scenes in very dynamic ways. It worked perfectly, seamlessly. We got all the shots my DP and team were hoping to get, and more. It really was as if I were shooting a 2D show with the HELIOS."
